Nominee for Biden Has Previous Theft Charges


Saule Omarova (a Cornell University law professor) was the nominee for the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), However, she stole $218 worth of merchandise from a T.J. Maxx store in Madison, Wisc. in May 1995. The controversy surrounding the confirmation of Saule Omarova as the next chief of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency just got an extra boost.

American Accountability Project obtained the police report.

Omarova was just 28 years old at the time she was arrested. The defense that it was a “youthful indiscretion”, however, doesn’t work.

This nominee was already in trouble for some bizarre non-capitalist views that she had expressed in the past. This was from someone being nominated by the US to regulate capitalism through its banks.

What’s not to love about radical leftists?

Yes, she is a true workhorse and doesn’t have any business living within 100 miles of a bank. She will almost certainly be confirmed, but that’s because she is a POC and a girl.

If you don’t like this, you are a racist, misogynistic bully.

Her retail theft is not important. A couple of hundred dollars worth of beef from over 25 years old could be dismissed as irrelevant. However, it is important to throw everything at this person in order to defeat her and keep her out of any government responsibility.

Omarova proposes that the Federal Reserve could provide a bank account for every American in a single paper. It would significantly reduce the “unbanked”, according to supporters. Critics claim it would harm commercial banks.

In another article she advocates for the creation of an agency similar to the Food and Drug Administration that would be responsible for approving and rejecting new financial products.

This was the original plan for Senator Elizabeth Warren’s Consumer Finance Protection Bureau. The CFPB was to screen financial products to protect consumers against their own stupidity. The plan was scrapped by more rational heads.

According to the White House, Omarova’s arrest was due to a “misunderstanding.” However, the police report states that it was not. According to the police report, Omarova “admitted that she stole the items.” The items included four pairs of shoes and two bottles of cologne as well as two belts and one pair of socks.

Three Democratic senators remain hesitant about confirming her at the moment. Biden will have to put the effort in to get her confirmed.
