Fed challenged over governor’s Clinton ties
Janet Yellen was forced to fend off new questions about the Federal Reserve’s political independence on Tuesday as a Republican lawmaker asked her if one of the central bank’s governors was too close to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
The Fed chair was challenged by Scott Garrett, a Republican from New Jersey, over donations that Fed governor Lael Brainard has made to the Clinton campaign and over unconfirmed media reports that Ms Brainard is a contender for a senior job in a potential Clinton administration.
Lael Brainard has been mentioned as Treasury secretary or a trade representative, although there are reports that pocohontas may try to block her appointemt
She previously served in both the BJ Clinton and Obama administrations

a couple of weeks ago,
Here's Why Markets Went Crazy for Fed Governor Brainard's Speech
she said rates were staying low

from July
Yellen squares off against Congress over who controls the central bank
The Fed “continues to communicate monetary policy by picking words out of a thesaurus,” says J.W. Verret, a George Mason University School of Law professor who helped craft a Fed transparency bill introduced this year by Republican Representatives Scott Garrett of New Jersey and Bill Huizenga of Michigan.

That doesn't sound like a bad place to find words. Although when I searched for synonyms for thesaurus I entered some kind of self-referential loop that ended up giving me the thesaurus list of synonyms for "for"

Richmond Fed President Lacker says he was involved with Medley leak, announces immediate resignation

he is (was now) a member of the FOMC
it looks like he's cut a sweet-heart deal with prosecutors and will not charges

I came across a review for eustace mullins' book on the fed, can't find the review now but it said something like "they put him in a mental hospital, it was that good." Best review ever?

for those who don't know, eustace mullins was a friend of the poet ezra pound, and supposedly wrote the book at pound's request, pound being indisposed at the time (he was also in a mental hospital)

eustace mullins' book has arrived, but I've yet to read it

meanwhile, there's ongoing speculation about  the fed mother (janet yellen) and her future.
If she is kicked to the curb, the likely replacement seems to be Gary Cohn, the former Goldman Sachs executive who now serves as Trump’s top economic adviser. He seems to be a liberal who disagrees with much of trump's stated policy of economic nationalism
