In his new book Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite, “Clinton Cash:” author Peter Schweizer details how 2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren made millions assisting big corporations in getting around bankruptcy laws.
Per TheStreet, Elizabeth Warren’s net worth amounts to a consensus $8.75 million in 2019, a figure that is based on various financial statements, most notably the release of her federal tax returns — 10 years in total through 2018.
Breitbart reports Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) made millions of dollars through her role in rewriting portions of U.S. bankruptcy law and assisting big corporations in navigating the laws she helped write at the expense of the victims of their practices, Government Accountability Institute (GAI) president and Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer revealed during a discussion on his book Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite on Breitbart News Daily.
Warren routinely rails against big corporations on the campaign trail, but she accumulated a large sum of money throughout her years in government service, aiding corporations in getting around the bankruptcy laws that Congress hired her to help rewrite.
“A lot of people don’t realize that Elizabeth Warren in the mid-1990s was paid by us, by taxpayers, and hired by Congress to rewrite portions of bankruptcy law,” Schweizer explained.
“While she was doing that and after, she started going to large companies that would be affected by this law and said, ‘Hey, you know you can hire me, an expert. I will help you navigate around and through this law to your own benefit.’ And that’s what she did,” Schweizer told Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow.
“So Dow Chemical hired her, Armstrong Worldwide — there’s a whole host of companies that did. And it’s the oldest game in Washington. You know, come to me powerful company, pay me lots of money, and I will help you interpret and get around a law that I myself actually wrote,” he continued, pointing out that she has made “millions of dollars” with those practices.
“And so she’s made millions of dollars doing that for corporations and she — by the way, in these cases or in these instances — represents the corporation,” he added. “She doesn’t represent the victims. You know with Dow Chemical it was women with breast implants. And the problems being caused there.”
“Warren’s expertise was used by a company fighting in court to limit its liability and payments to women,” one lawyer involved in the case stated, as Schweizer notes in Profiles in Corruption.
“She makes a living demonizing corporations,” Marlow noted.
