Elizabeth Warren Ignores Hillary’s Corruption; Targets Private Business Messaging System Instead

There are three things the Progressive left lives for: creating a large Socialist government, taking over Wall Street, and destroying individual liberty. And the truth of the matter is they don’t care what law they have to break, or who they have to run over, in order to reach their goals.

Case in point.

Thanks to the FBI’s criminal investigation into Servergate, and Bernie Sanders continued climb in the polls, Hillary Clinton’s Presidential run is imploding before our very eyes. But as the media and the Republicans are jumping all over this news there is one Democrat in particular who would rather ignore Hillary’s corruption, and instead focus on trying to destroy a messaging system which might prevent the Government from spying on private messages (sort of ironic isn’t it?).

Rapid News reports that Democrat Elizabeth Warren wrote a letter on Monday to regulators saying that she was concerned a Wall Street backed messaging system called Symphony would prevent the government from being able to read internal messages sent by banks:

Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) told financial regulators in a letter Monday.

Warren said she was concerned Wall Street banks could use the new messaging tool as a way to help prevent regulators from accessing internal communications, especially after many high-profile financial crime cases were built on just that.

She asked regulators to detail how they planned to approach this new tool and whether they had any concerns about what it could mean for compliance and enforcement in the future.

In an email to HuffPost, a company spokeswoman said using “Symphony does not change regulators’ ability to obtain messages from our clients”.

Symphony, which was launched earlier this month, has received $70 million in backing by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Bank of New York Mellon, BlackRock, Citadel, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, Jefferies, JPMorgan, Maverick Capital, Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo. The firms wanted to find a way to enable employees to trade messages instantly and securely, as well as provide an alternative to the messaging system provided by Bloomberg LLP.

Warren’s letter pointed out that as of July, Symphony’s website boasted that its product guaranteed “that data deletion is permanent” and will “prevent government spying”.

 

Speculation may still run rampant as to if Elizabeth Warren will step into the Presidential Race after Hillary finishes imploding. But you may rest assured that while Warren doesn’t give a hoot n’ holler if government officials break the law or delete emails, she is interested in making darn sure that Wall Street bankers aren’t able to do the same.
