Following Elizabeth Warren’s call for Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair, Huma Abedin, to testify before the House Oversight Committee after it emerged she had mishandled classified information, and demand that Keith Ellison be ousted from his role as attorney general, there was talk of Warren challenging Clinton for the 2020 Democratic nomination.
According to a confidential March 30, 2018, letter Warren wrote to Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell as part of her effort to defund the Federal Communications Commission, Warren asked for a copy of a confidential, March 19, 2018, letter to the Fed’s Board of Governors dated March 13, 2018, asking the Fed to remove controversial director Ajit Pai. It appears that Warren did not receive the letter she requested.
At the top of the handwritten note, the day before President Trump nominated Ajit Pai to head the Federal Communications Commission, Warren scribbled “Respons to Request for Information.”
The letter Warren requested appeared on March 13 and was sent to the president by a Republican FCC commissioner; Warren did not even know who the chairman of the FCC was until the date of the letter.
If it was indeed written on the same day the letter was received by the Federal Reserve, there is a suspicion that the number 14 of Warren’s signature got mixed up and there was only one misspelling.
