In a newly surfaced video from 2011, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is seen testifying before Congress about the benefits of the controversial Export-Import Bank.
At one point during her testimony, Clinton boasts, “I would like to put Ex-Im Bank on steroids because I think it does so much good work for American companies. And I want American businesses to know that.”
As reported by The Daily Signal last month, Ex-Im Chairman Fred Hochberg has been a longtime supporter of Clinton, personally donating $8,600 to her campaigns for the U.S. Senate and president, and serving as a bundler for her 2008 presidential run.
The Export-Import Bank’s charter will expire June 30. At least 92 members of the U.S. House, including Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., publicly oppose its reauthorization.
