Media pundits and expert economists are criticizing Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) and the Brookings Institution for the way in which the liberal think tank forced the resignation of a respected economist who opposed a regulation supported by Warren.
Additionally, questions have arisen about whether Brookings is enforcing internal rules regarding affiliation with the think tank evenhandedly in the wake of the dismissal.
Elizabeth Warren has cemented herself as the most powerful woman in the Democratic Party after forcing a “non-resident scholar” at the left-leaning Brookings Institution to resign in disgrace.
Fueling presidential speculation, Vice President Joe Biden has tapped a former spokeswoman for John Edwards’ failed 2008 presidential campaign to be his new communications director.
While Elizabeth Warren admits she does not “trust” Iran, the Democratic senator from Massachusetts is nevertheless backing the nuclear arms deal with Tehran as the “best available option” to disable the country’s nuclear capabilities.
