Statement from Senator Elizabeth Warren on Removal of Comptroller Tom Curry

Washington, DC - U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren released the following statement today on the removal of Tom Curry from his position as Comptroller of the Currency by the Trump Administration, and the decision to replace him with an acting director:

"Tom Curry is a dedicated public servant who has been a tough but fair regulator of banks for decades - including under five different Massachusetts Governors as the Commonwealth's Commissioner of Banks.  I am deeply concerned by the Administration's decision to remove an experienced, independent regulator like Comptroller Curry and replace him with a career bank lawyer."
