CAP: Conservatives Strongly Oppose The Confirmation of Saule Omarova

As we explained in our article, The Senate Must Defeat Communist Saule Omarova For Comptroller of the Currency, Prof. Saule Omarova, President Biden’s nominee for

Comptroller of the Currency, is a dyed-in-the-wool Soviet Communist who has no business teaching American law students, let alone supervising the Nation’s banks. It is hard to imagine why, other than to undermine American constitutional government, she even emigrated here in the first place. No Republican Senator should vote in favor of her confirmation and any Democrat who does not want to own voting a Communist into one of the most powerful economic positions in our government when they next face the voters should also vote NO.


Now, dozens of conservative leaders who are part of the Conservative Action Project, whose organizations represent millions of conservative voters, have joined the opposition to the confirmation of Omarova through the letter posted below.


The toll-free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044), call today and tell your Senators to vote NO on the confirmation of Communist Saule Omarova, President Biden’s nominee for Comptroller of the Currency.

Washington, DC

Conservatives strongly oppose the confirmation of Saule Omarova to Comptroller of the Currency.

Far from an academic critic of the U.S. banking system, Omarova is a radical activist, having made clear she wants to put an “’end to banking’ as we know it.” Her vision involves transferring private banking functions to the Federal Reserve, which would also be tasked with controlling prices for fuel, food, raw materials, metals, natural resources, home prices and wages.

Omarova has spoken of transforming the Federal Reserve into a central platform for “generating, modulating, and allocating financial resources in a modern economy.” She has referred to the financial sector – the industry which she would purport to regulate – in derogatory and inflammatory terms and suggested changing the legal system to address so-called “self-serving behavior.”

Such ideas are straight out of the Soviet playbook, which Omarova has both studied and hailed. It should go without saying that such practices have no place in our U.S. monetary system. Particularly at a time when monetary services have become ideologically weaponized, decentralization of the financial sector remains critical to ensuring that all Americans have access to the basic levers of capitalism.

The Biden administration appears to have nominated an outright communist to a capital markets position – a contradiction both in terms, and in governing ideology. If confirmed, Saule Omarova would seek to expand political control over the private economy and further infuse our capital markets with ideological purpose. We urge the Senate to reject her nomination.
