After tapping several Goldman Sachs Group Inc. alumni for senior economic posts, President-elect Donald Trump?s team is considering yet another for a key job at the Treasury Department.
Jim Donovan, a senior Goldman Sachs private banker, is under consideration to be the U.S. Treasury Department?s undersecretary for domestic finance, according to people familiar with the matter.
The choice isn?t yet final and could change, these people said. Attempts to reach Mr. Donovan on Friday were unsuccessful. Mr. Trump?s transition team didn?t respond to a request for comment.
Mr. Donovan?s nomination likely would inflame Democrats and liberal groups, which already have been critical of other Trump nominees with ties to the financial sector. Earlier this week, a few dozen protesters sought access to the lobby of Goldman?s lower Manhattan headquarters protesting the bank?s influence in politics.
