Congressman Criticizes Elizabeth Warren in Front of Bankers


This week, a Republican Congressman told a room full of bankers that they need to "neuter" Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren. According to Politico, Missouri Representative Blaine Luetkemeyer, who is a member of the House of Representatives' Financial Services Committee, also called Warren the "Darth Vader" of the financial world. The Massachusetts senator came to national prominence after pushing for more oversight on big banks after the 2008 financial crisis. His comments came at a panel on how bankers must adapt to the changing political landscape on the last day of the American Banking Association's Government Relations Summit.

    In another election, at another time, the late entrance of a well-funded candidate leading in the polls might send convulsions through the primary field. But Joe Biden’s arrival into the 2020 race has not had that effect. No Democratic rival appears doomed. No one’s fundraising seems in danger of drying up. Instead, in joining the race, the former vice president has laid bare how unsettled the entire 20-candidate contest remains — and how many in the party don’t believe the 76-year-old Biden is prepared for the rigors of a modern campaign, or the demands of a party transformed.
