Via AAN:

Saule Omarova, President Biden’s pick to head up a key banking regulation position has now unceremoniously withdrawn herself from consideration. 

The news is another blow for the Biden Administration already reeling from months of bad news.

CNBC reports:

Omarova’s withdrawal came after concerns from Republican senators about the Cornell University professor’s writings as a legal scholar, as well as her background of being raised in the former Soviet Union.

“I don’t know whether to call you professor or comrade,” Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., said at her confirmation hearing, in a quip that was criticized by Democrats.

But Omarova also faced what ultimately was the more problematic lack of support for her nomination by several moderate Democrats, Mark Warner of Virginia, and Montana’s Jon Tester, due to her opposition to a bill that had lifted some regulatory restrictions on banks.

Biden on Tuesday condemned what he called the “inappropriate personal attacks” on Omarova, “that were far beyond the pale.”

Oh, yes, those “inappropriate personal attacks.” Biden and the Democrats would never stoop to such things (unless, of course, the target is Trump or Rittenhouse, or any conservative or Republican or patriot, etc.)

Biden is an idiot of the first order. It is a wonder that our system of government can survive his term and remains to be seen. Praying for the best. Planning for the worst. God helps us all.

It’s no surprise that Biden is picking communists and Marxists. He is a wannabe dictator and believes they will actually support him.
