Democrat President Joe Biden’s top nominee for comptroller of the currency, Saule Omarova, has been forced to withdraw herself from consideration for the role after increasing pressure in opposing to her given multiple credible allegations that she was a Marxist.
Omarova stated that while she felt it was an honor and privilege to receive the President’s nomination for control over the U.S. national banking system, that she was withdrawing her candidacy from further consideration.
Her statement added that the reason for withdrawing her name was due to the untenable nature of pushing forward as a Presidential nominee.
Omarova was born in Kazakhstan while it was a member nation of the former Soviet Union. Her political background as a ‘dyed in the wool’ communist raised opposition from both Democrats and Republican senators as she sought confirmation for the position.
Five Democrat Senators declared their opposition to Omarova, such as Mark Kelley (D-AZ), John Hickenlooper (D-CO), Mark Warner (D-VA), Jon Tester (D-MT), and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ).
Omarova’s Marxist background wasn’t the only red flag that caught lawmakers’ attention. Omarova was caught on tape earlier this year declaring that she would hope to literally bankrupt oil and gas companies if possible. Furthermore, though she wrote a thesis on Karl Marx when she graduated from Moscow State University, she never provided it to the Senate Banking Committee for review. Omarova praised the former USSR for its supposed gender equality, showing longing for her old defunct government.
Omarova was also caught shoplifting in 1995 when she was a 28 year old student at the University of Wisconsin, having stolen $214 worth of goods from a T.J. Maxx. Padding her resume with behavior ill suited of a public servant, Omarova also sat on the panel of a think thank for the Chinese government, specifically one that oversaw their propaganda efforts and was an invaluable part of Beijing’s efforts to control its citizenry.
On Tuesday, Biden defended his communist nominee with a statement after accepting her resignation. He claimed, without any evidence, that Omarova was “subjected to inappropriate personal attacks [from] beyond the pale.”
No such personal attacks have been reported by any news outlet.
Biden claimed that Saule’s “invaluable insight” would have ensured the “safety and soundness of our financial system” on behalf of consumers and the American people.
