Someone might want to get Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren on the phone and quick.
Despite Democrats constantly decrying the power and influence of Wall Street and big banks in American politics, the very same Wall Street and big banks are lining up to be part of Joe Biden’s transition team.
Isn’t that kind of a problem for the far left?
Breitbart News reports:
Hostile Takeover: Wall Street Assumes Command of Joe Biden Transition Team
Wall Street and the biggest U.S. banks, after spending a fortune to unseat President Trump, are getting key spots in Democrat Joe Biden’s transition team that he has devised before the presidential election is certified.
Detailed by the New York Times, Biden’s list of transition team members includes former Wall Street employees and those with close ties to Wall Street. Many of the big banks with links to Biden transition team members were major donors to the former vice president.
Breitbart points to this report from the New York Times:
Commerce Department: The review team is led by Geovette Washington of the University of Pittsburgh, who previously served as general counsel and senior policy adviser at the Office of Management and Budget. Other members include Anna Gomez, a partner at the law firm Wiley Rein; Arun Venkataraman, who works in government relations at Visa (and was director of policy at the Commerce Department under Mr. Obama); and Ellen Hughes-Cromwick of the think tank Third Way, who served as chief economist at Mr. Obama’s Commerce Department and held a similar role at Ford. [Emphasis added]
Treasury Department: The team is led by Don Graves, who heads corporate responsibility at KeyBank and previously worked as director of domestic and economic policy for Mr. Biden. Others include Nicole Isaac of LinkedIn and Marisa Lago, who works at the New York City Department of City Planning and previously oversaw global compliance at Citigroup.
Funny how the left has no problem with this, as long as they’re in power.

Joe Biden is the candidate of Wall Street donations, not Main Street success.

The left doesn’t care about banks or Wall Street, they care about power. Theirs.
