Sen. Joe Manchin Announces He Will Oppose Biden Nominee Neera Tanden, Likely Defeating Her Nomination President Joe Biden’s nomination of Neera Tanden to head the Office of Management and Budget suffered a crippling blow Friday afternoon. West Virginia Democratic Senator Joe Manchin announced that he would oppose Tanden’s nomination, saying her “overtly partisan statements” will only stoke the dangerous political division that exists in D.C. With Manchin’s defection, it is now highly doubtful that Tanden’s nomination will succeed. With the 50/50 split between Republicans and Democrats in the U.S. Senate, Democrats now likely lack the necessary votes to confirm her. Manchin’s announcement came after a group of 66 conservative leaders authored a memo that outlined Tanden’s past provocative conduct. “She has called Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) ‘the worst,’ Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) ‘a fraud,’ stated that ‘vampires have more heart than Ted Cruz,’ and called Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) ‘Moscow Mitch’ and ‘Voldemort.’ She has publicly insinuated that Russia helped the presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Tanden has also stated that Republican Party’s ‘capacity for evil knows no bounds.’“

Prominent Democrat Fundraiser for Obama, Clinton Sentenced to 12 Years in Prison for Foreign Money Campaign Schemes A California businessman and major Democratic bundler has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for a “mercenary” political influence scheme. Imaad Zuberi, who raised large sums for former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, was sentenced for schemes to funnel foreign money into American political campaigns, in which he would then take millions of dollars for himself. U.S. Assistant Attorney Daniel J. O’Brien said Zuberi was “purely a mercenary, funneling money to whomever he believed would do his bidding.” Zuberi contributed more than $950,000 in unlawful donations to the political committees of Obama, Clinton, McCain, and others. His most recent attempt was to work his way into the Biden circle.
