Skip to comments.Centrist Dems sink Biden’s nominee for top bank regulator
Posted on 11/24/2021 4:07:29 PM PST by Rummyfan
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.

Wow! I thought sure the Dems would support the communist.
Wow..this is great news and yes, thank God!
Afraid of losing their money ,LOL
Saule Omarova was just too much of a “good thing” even for the highly compromised Democrats.
A bridge too far by the oligarchy that is the real executive power behind Joe Biden.
Factions realize Biden has no clout for getting what he wants.
He’s a puppet, and a puppet master cannot interfere directly or they risk revealing that they are the man behind the curtain.
I despise Axios not just because they always put this "why it matters" into every article as if the audience is too thick to figure the facts out for themselves, which they are because the media never gives a broad collection of the facts. But also because they never really say why it matters in the why it matters section. And they don't say why it matters to whom. To them? To the subject of the article? To the political class? To other journalists? Who the heck reads them anyway?
No offense Runnyfan.
I thought the rhinos would support the communist .
"People's Frindship University" (f/k/a Patrice Lumumba University) would be a better fit. Historically the training ground for semi-literate 4th world terrorists.
Moscow University is too respectable for a Stalinist ideologue like her.
That’s my good news for today. I hope any Dem opposition is enough to overcome any Assistant Democrats aka RINOs ‘just trying to help out’.
I was worried she'd get in after the Jerome Powell nomination came in.
down goes the marxist! down goes the marxist!
just nominating her should be an impeachable offense
Wish I could find a source for an unbiased, accurate description of her philosophies as all I can find are fluff and excuse making sites trying to make her look as good as they can.
Instead of “straight outta Compton” Saule Omarova was too obviously “straight outta Kremlin” to keep the real Kremlin DNC train hidden.
Biden is so unpopular that Dems gain nothing from actually supporting him. They can see the writing on the wall that they are going to get zonked on midterms
Typical axios garbage - her ethnicity has nothing to do with her very extreme views that make her unfit for the position and to imply that it does is ridiculous and outrageous.
It's the old Door in the Face technique. Clinton used this to a T.
