Chairman Hensarling Comments on Hearing Into Allegations of Ex-Im Corruption

Washington, July 24, 2014 -

WASHINGTON- Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) issued the following statement on the announcement that the Oversight and Government Reform Committee will hold a hearing next week to examine allegations of corruption at the Export-Import Bank:

“The allegations of kickbacks and corruption at the Export-Import Bank are as disturbing as they are serious.  At our recent Financial Services Committee hearing on Ex-Im reauthorization, the Bank’s chairman refused to answer repeated questions about whether he was aware of a criminal investigation into these allegations.  So I’m pleased the Oversight and Government Reform Committee is taking this action."
