Shortly after the hearing in which Senator Elizabeth Warren called on the Wells Fargo CEO to resign and return the money he made off of defrauded customers, the senator offered a warning to Hillary Clinton about her future administration and its cozy relationship with Wall Street.
Warren defended Clinton’s economic policy when compared to Trump’s, but she made it clear that she wouldn’t be giving the former Secretary of State any friendly breaks once the election is over.
“When we talk about personnel, we don’t mean advisors who just pay lip service to Hillary’s bold agenda, coupled with a sigh, a knowing glance, and a twiddling of thumbs until it’s time for the next swing through the revolving door, serving government then going back to the very same industries they regulate. We don’t mean Citigroup or Morgan Stanley or BlackRock getting to choose who runs the economy in this country so they can capture our government. No.”
Warren’s remark points directly to the sort of corruption which has been allowed to go on for years, on both the Democrat and Republican sides. Clinton’s especially cozy relationship with Wall Street and big banks means that her chances of filling her cabinet with insiders is more likely than ever.
Though Warren offered her support to Clinton, she has made it clear that the candidate is no exception to her unending battle against Wall Street corruption and Big Bank greed.
Many have not been able to forgive Warren for her endorsement of Clinton but her statement to the Clinton camp makes it clear that she doesn’t intend to go along quietly. Warren has been referred to as a senate bulldog, and you can rest assured that she will continue to bully and bark at whatever corruption a Clinton administration might try to initiate.
