Trump’s Fed Finalists Should Clear Senate, With a Bit of Drama

Bloomberg, by Elizabeth Dexheimer Posted By: Attercliffe- Fri, 20 59 2017 10:59:20 GMT The U.S. Senate probably will confirm President Donald Trump’s pick to lead the Federal Reserve, but the process won’t be free of drama.

In an article that ran with too many words – even one would have been too much – the intellectual accused Wiesel of putting up a false front; that in order to make himself more appealing, Wiesel (who left us last year) downplayed his anger over his suffering at Auschwitz, both as a public figure and namely in his ground’breaking memoir, “Night.” That’s the accusation.

You won’t be able to unite them later if that’s how you start,” Obama added. Former President Bush said in
