    The peanut gallery: "Russian collusion! Russian interference!
    Orange Man Bad!"

    2021:

    President Joe Biden nominates Saule Omarova to lead the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. Omarova, born in the USSR and educated in Soviet-era Russia, once called banking the "a--h--e industry." She has in the past voiced a opinion that private banks (and bank accounts) should all be merged into one central, government-owned-and-run bank where, presumably, the government can keep a better eye on the banking habits of its citizens.

    She has also voiced opinions that make it sound like she would be OK with
    the US energy industry going bankrupt if it hurried about a quicker
    migration to green energy. Nevermind that it would put a lot of workers
    out of jobs, or the affect it would have on our economy as a whole, right?

    She attended Moscow State University on a Lenin academic scholarship, and
    wrote her thesis lauding the economic and revolutionary views of Karl Marx. Reference to this thesis existed in her CV in 2017 but has mysteriously vanished in the copies currently floating around Congress.

    The peanut gallery: <sound of crickets chirping>

    Strange how people so concerned about Russian influence and interference in
    our government don't seem to have any issue with a former citizen of the USSR being involved in our banking system.

    Funny how quickly times change.
