(UnitedVoice.com) – President Donald Trump is still challenging the election results and trying to make sure every legal vote is counted. In the meantime, the General Services Administration (GSA) is allowing Joe Biden to move forward with his presidential transition. Part of that includes choosing his cabinet members, and one of them is raising eyebrows.
According to reports, Biden’s top pick for Treasury Secretary, Janet Yellen, made a lot of money from Wall Street banks. Financial institutions reportedly gave her more than $7 million for speeches after she left her position as chair of the Federal Reserve.
Got conflict of interest?
“Steep payments from Wall Street bankers and other powerful corporations could become an issue as her nomination works its way through a closely divided and potentially contentious Senate.” https://t.co/VUYB8rWPgD

The revelation means Yellen has a massive conflict of interest. If Biden wins the White House and Yellen is confirmed, she’ll be in charge of the US’ finances and the economy as the head of the Treasury. But does she plan to work for the American people or the banks that have lined her pockets?
Looks like Biden is having trouble finding people worthy of their positions.
