Warren has some explaining to do. It slipped her mind to disclose a $1.3 million line of credit provided to her by Bank of America. Again, liberals, keep tabs on your own people first so you don’t end up looking like idiots.

Warren argued that financial disclosures are needed to ‘reveal potentially damaging information that may undermine fitness to serve’ and that nominees with ‘complex financial histories’ need to be ‘forthcoming and transparent.’ Warren, meanwhile, continues to skirt congressional ethics laws by failing to include a $1.3 million line of credit against her Cambridge, Massachusetts, home on financial disclosure forms.
“Another example of this shady lady in action — she claims to fight for the downtrodden, but checks the box to claim minority status, takes zero-interest loans from Harvard to buy her mansion, says in 2012 that she doesn’t own stocks, only mutual funds, claims to be the ‘intellectual mother’ of the Occupy movement until it turns into a PR disaster — is anyone suprised by this latest?” Boston talk radio king Howie Carr tells Breitbart News.
“Surely not Bernie Sanders, whom she refused to endorse!” Carr notes.
The revelation of the existence of this previously undisclosed line of credit leaves Warren, who presents herself as a champion of the common people, vulnerable to charges of hypocrisy.
Warren aggressively criticized Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) at his confirmation hearing before the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee on January 18 to become Secretary of Health and Human Services over the purchase of $2,700 in the stock of one company by the manager of his stock portfolio.
“I’m just asking: Did you buy the stock, and then did you introduce a bill that would be helpful to the companies you just bought stock in?” she asked Price at the hearing.
“The stock was bought by a direct… by a broker who was making those decisions. I wasn’t making those decisions,” he responded.
Warren: So, let’s just be clear. This is not just a stock broker — someone you pay to handle the paperwork. This is someone who buys stock at your direction. This is someone who buys and sells the stock you want them buy and sell.
Price: Not true.
Warren: So, when you found out that…
Price: It’s not true Senator.
Warren: What? Because you decide not to tell them? Wink, wink. Nod, nod. And we’re all just supposed to believe that?
Price: It’s what members of this committee. It’s the manner in which members of this committee . . .
Warren: I’m not one of them.
The left-wing senior senator from Massachusetts, who is up for re-election in 2018, now has a political perception problem of her own related to personal financial dealings — the undisclosed $1.3 million line of credit, which suggests that she is very much “one of them.”
