Warren had previously called Powell “a dangerous man to head the Fed” and announced in September that he would oppose his nomination.

She argued Monday that Biden’s selection of Powell makes it even more important that the Senate also confirm Lael Brainard’s choice of president to serve as vice president.

“It is no secret that I am opposed to the appointment of President Jerome Powell and will vote against him. I will support the appointment of Lael Brainard as vice president by the president. Powell’s failures in regulation, climate and ethics make the still-vacant position of Vice President of Oversight of utmost importance, ”Warren said in a statement.

Warren said the vice president position “should be filled by a strong regulator with a proven track record of strict and effective enforcement, and it should be done quickly.”

“American taxpayers have bailed out big financial institutions enough times. It is the job of the Federal Reserve to ensure that large financial institutions do not put our economy at risk, ”he added.

Warren has previously praised what she called Brainard’s “strong and powerful dissenters” in response to deregulation actions taken under Powell’s leadership.

“She makes a good case for why it’s the Federal Reserve’s job to be that cop on the sidelines and make sure the bigger financial institutions don’t put our economy at greater risk,” she said this summer in an interview with Bloomberg TV.

That person is not Jerome Powell, ”the senators said in a joint statement Friday.
