    The Facts

    • Sarah Bloom Raskin, Biden's nominee for the Federal Reserve's top bank regulator, has been questioned over past comments regarding the oil and gas industry.

    • She argued against the Fed's support for the industry during the pandemic in a 2020 New York Times opinion piece.


    The Spin

    Right narrative

    Despite the economic meltdown suffered during COVID, Raskin was promoting the idea of letting a major industry collapse. She is seeking to politicize the reserve and could threaten America's financial and economic stability.

    Left narrative

    The GOP are attacking the idea that people who believe in the threat of climate change can serve honorably in other capacities. Her personal beliefs don't undermine her ability to regulate impartially.
