Biden Treasury nominee Omarova laments Manchin: He is 'supposed to be on  the Democratic side' | Fox Business
Five Democratic senators have told the White House they won't support Saule Omarova to head the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, effectively killing her nomination for the powerful bank-regulator position.
Why it matters: The defiant opposition from a broad coalition of senators reflects the real policy concerns they had with Omarova, a Cornell University law professor who's attracted controversy for her academic writings about hemming in big banks.
  • Their opposition also hints at a willingness of some Democratic senators to buck the White House on an important nomination, even if it hands Republicans a political — and symbolic — victory.
  • Republicans have attacked the Kazakh-born scholar in remarkably personal terms, and turned her nomination into a proxy battle over how banks should be regulated.
Driving the news: In phone call on Wednesday, Sens. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) Mark Warner (D-Va.) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), all members of the Senate Banking Committee, told Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) — the panel's chairman — of their opposition.
  • They're joined in opposing her by Sens. John Hickenlooper (D-Colo.) and Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.).
  • The five senators' offices either declined to comment or did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

  • I’m sure she will be offered a presidency at one of the ivy league liberal arts colleges. Too much communist knowledge to go to waist !

  • The question still remains as to who actually gave this commie waste product to the jackal as a nominee? 

    • Agree, what dusty, dark corner did they have to search to find this communist POS?

  • Everyone knows no one can sell candy that has a bite missing from every piece prior to packaging.

  • Glad some Dems have a backbone

  • Well wonder of wonders, it seems at least some de"mock"rats aren't willing to go full Communist!  It doesn't happen too often

  • Excellent!!!  Now let's impeach all those who have gone against their oath to "protect and defend the constitution of the United States " and effectively eliminate the Democratic party.

    • You have that right!!!
