Biden pick for OMB tweeted after Hillary’s 2016 loss “Why would hackers hack in unless they could change results?”

Neera Tanden, Joe Biden’s controversial pick to lead the Office of Management and Budget tweeted in 2016 after Hillary Clinton lost the election to Donald Trump “Why would hackers hack in unless they could change results? What’s the point?”

Kenneth Baer replied “Sow doubt in our electoral system to undermine it.”

To which Neera replied “fair point. It’s definitely worked with me.”

Tanden was on Hillary’s team and her statements angered many on the progressive left supporting Bernie.

Former Bernie national press secretary Briahna Joy Gray tweeted “Everything toxic about the corporate Democratic Party is embodied in Neera Tanden.”


Drew Brandewie, spokesperson for Senator John Cornyn, does not think Tanden will be approved.

Brandewie tweeted Sunday “Neera Tanden, who has an endless stream of disparaging comments about the Republican Senators’ whose votes she’ll need, stands zero chance of being confirmed.”
