Steven Mnuchin, President Trump's pick for Treasury Secretary, will face a Senate confirmation vote Monday evening.
He's likely to be confirmed since Republicans hold the majority in the Senate. While dogged by accusations of failing to disclose his finances, he is less controversial than Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, approved in a historic tiebreaker vote.
The Senate is also set to vote on David Shulkin to head the Department of Veterans Affairs.
This Treasury nominee is smart. He's capable, and he's got impressive private-sector experience. We need him confirmed as soon as possible.
The case for Mnuchin
Mnuchin, a former Goldman Sachs executive, impressed Republicans with his long tenure at the financial giant.
The case against him
But leading Democrats see that Wall Street experience as a negative. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) called him the "ultimate Wall Street insider" and questioned his willingness to enact regulations that would hinder "his old buddies."
They also complained that he did not disclose nearly $100 million in assets in financial disclosure forms.
Mnuchin was also criticized for his tenure at OneWest Bank. Democrats claim he didn't protect homeowners from foreclosures. Mnuchin said he worked hard to help homeowners and called the missing $100 million an "oversight."
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said he wouldn't vote for Mnuchin.
