Five Senate Democrats have told the White House they will not support Saule Omarova, the Communist chosen by Biden to head the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.
Without support from these five Democrats, Omarova’s nomination is DOA – Comrade down.
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.
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.
Go deeper: Biden officials also have heard directly from the senators. They’re aware of their deep opposition and know Omarova faces nearly impossible odds for confirmation.
Still, they continue to back her publicly.
“The White House continues to strongly support her historic nomination,” a White House official told Axios.
Joe Biden’s pick for Comptroller of the Currency, Saule Omarova, was born and raised in communist USSR.
She refuses to hand over her university thesis on Marxism she wrote when she was in school in the USSR.
In a newly uncovered video, Omarova admitted her goal is to bankrupt the coal, oil and gas industry in order to usher in a ‘green’ agenda.
Omarova wants the federal government to control your bank deposits and withdrawals and Fox News recently reported she’s a convicted thief.
