Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appointed to panel overseeing financial sector



It is exceedingly rare for first-year members of Congress to be placed on House committees as powerful as the Financial Services Committee. "And the Democratic Party is not going to succeed that way".

President Trump clashed with Rep.

The Hill reported Tuesday evening, citing a "Democratic source", that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, New York Democrat, will join the House Financial Services Committee, which oversees US financial institutions and markets.
