Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), the Harvard University law professor who oversaw the establishment of the CFPB, will join the Senate Banking Committee after she’s sworn into office in January, press reports said yesterday.
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) also is expected to receive a seat on the committee. The reports quoted two Democratic aides who were briefed on the matter. The aides asked not to be identified because the assignments are not yet official.
