Biden’s pick for Comptroller of the Currency was born and raised in communist USSR. Now she won’t hand over her university thesis on Marxism.
We reported previously that Biden’s pick for Comptroller of the Currency was raised in communist USSR.
Ms. Omarova is the last pick you would make for Comptroller of the Currency if you were attempting to build a better and freer America. Now she won’t hand over the thesis she wrote from when she was in school in the USSR.
Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden’s nominee to head the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), is refusing to hand over to the Senate Banking Committee her university thesis on Marxism written during her time in the Soviet Union.
Republican Sen. Pat Toomey, ranking member of the committee, had sent a letter to Omarova on Oct. 6 asking the Cornell Law School professor to hand over her Moscow State University thesis, titled “Karl Marx’s Economic Analysis and the Theory of Revolution in The Capital,” by Oct. 13, citing the committee’s need to “fully assess the fitness of individuals to serve in Senate-confirmed executive and independent agency positions.”
Omarova, who grew up in the Soviet Union, had scrubbed mention of the thesis from her resume, the Washington Free Beacon reported. She also praised the now-defunct socialist government for its lack of “gender pay gap” in 2019.
