Sen. James Lanlord, R-Okla. asked Yellen during a Senate Finance Committee hearing about depositors allegedly linked to the CCP.
“It has been publicly reported that SVB has a significant number of Chinese investors, including some companies that were directly linked to the Chinese Communist Party,” Lankford began.
“So what I’m asking is: Will my bank in Oklahoma pay a special assessment to be able to make the Chinese investors in Silicon Valley Bank whole?” the Republican senator asked.

Yellen insisted during the hearing that the US banking system was “robust” despite the collapse of SVB.
