AOC, Warren team up for new video pressing Mnuchin over Sears bankruptcy
New York paper suggests Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should run for mayor
Speculation swirls about who should succeed Bill de Blasio as New York City mayor; reaction and analysis on ‘The Five.’
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., released another joint video Thursday in which they pressed Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin over his role in Sears' 2018 bankruptcy — implying that he made money off of American workers' hardships.
Americans, Warren argued, deserved a "Treasury secretary who fights for them — not someone who spent a decade raking in cash for himself at the expense of hundreds of thousands of Sears employees."
The video highlighted ties between Mnuchin and Eddie Lampert, Mnuchin's old college roommate and the subject of a lawsuit claiming he improperly stripped Sears of its assets. Lampert, the former CEO and Chairman of Sears, appointed Mnuchin, also named in the lawsuit, to Sears' board before driving "the company into the ground," Ocasio-Cortez claimed.
"He is a walking example of what happens when rich and powerful people put other rich and powerful people into power," Ocasio-Cortez said of Mnuchin.
