Wall Street Allegedly Shutting Down Dem Donations Because Of Warren

Excerpt:

Could it be true? Are the barons of Wall Street closing their fat cat wallets for Democrats in protest of the rise of Elizabeth Warren in the polls? That’s supposedly the case according to CNBC, and they’ve delivered a message to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. Back off from Warren or find someone else to fund the rest of your Senate races.

Some finance executives have recently told Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer that they are, for the moment, holding back from donating to Democrats running for Senate in 2020 due to their concerns with Warren becoming a frontrunner in the race for the party’s presidential nomination, according to people familiar with the conversations. These people spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the private nature of the talks.

The move is intended to put pressure on party leadership and Schumer, who represents New York and has received millions of dollars in donations from Wall Street, to distance themselves from Warren’s economic populism.

On the one hand, this puts pressure on Schumer (assuming this anonymously sourced report is valid) because he’s supposed to be helping to find funding for Democratic Senate candidates in battleground states. And while most Democrats love to talk about how evil the rich bankers are, pretty much all of them are happy to quietly take their money. (And presumably, remember those favors when it comes time to vote on regulations.)

But Warren is the exception that proves the rule this year. Yes, she’s been quite cozy with the Wall Street fat cats earlier in her career, but as a Democratic politician on the campaign trail she’s railed against them regularly. Last month she publicly promised that she would turn down any money offered by Wall Street, and by Big Tech as well.

In other words, while this story may prove problematic for Schumer, it’s basically a huge gift and a free campaign ad for Warren. She would love nothing better than to have the press talking up her “war on Wall Street” and how their money is no good at her establishment. We can probably chalk this one up as yet another log on the fire that’s erupting between the vocal socialists in the Democratic base and the more moderate influences who are likely still backing Biden.

Of course, that puts Warren in the position of needing to raise money from sources that traditionally don’t have such deep pockets.

Hillary Clinton’s losing campaign cost a record $1.2B
https://nypost.com/2...t-a-record-1-2b

Dec 09, 2016 · Hillary Clinton and her supporters spent a record $1.2 billion for her losing presidential campaign — twice as much as the winner, Donald Trump, according to the latest records. The president-elect, who confounded critics during the campaign by saying there was no need to raise or spend $1 billion or more, ended up making do with $600 million.

Yep, $1.2 billion and still got it handed to her. Makes you wonder how much of that came from Wall Street...

Why any Wall St. fat cat would support any Democrat is baffling. Talk about sleeping with the enemy!

No they're not.

Anyone who believes that is a fool.

They are just re-routing it another way (via laundering) to keep it hidden from the public.
