FDIC Chairman Jelena McWilliams Announces Resignation

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

EDITOR'S NOTE: The FDIC has always been limited, if not outright deceptive, in its powers to protect US depositors. We’ve written about this on several occasions. Ultimately, the FDIC protects the fiat system and, ironically, banks more so than the depositors they’ve pledged to serve. So, we’ve always been critical of the institution, even with FDIC Chair Jelena McWilliams (a Trump appointee) at the helm. But to our surprise, what was always a “bad” situation just got even worse. McWilliams resigned in response to what she calls a “hostile takeover” by the Democratic left. Listening to Biden and his progressive congressional cohorts, it’s clear their economic agenda oozes economic naivete and ignorance. Parroting the Fed’s “transitory inflation” meme, now debunked, allowed the left to advance its assault on economic freedom and mobility. As we’ve said before, the FDIC’s operations, especially in the event of a bank failure, is much less favorable than most Americans might think. But if the left is able to get FDIC operations within their control, as an instrument to pursue their agenda, your lack of real financial safety may now be guaranteed.

FDIC Chairman Jelena McWilliams announced her resignation on Friday after warning that Democrats had launched a “hostile takeover” of the agency.

McWilliams resigned in an open letter addressed to President Biden.

McWilliams was appointed to the position in 2018 by President Donald Trump.

“When I immigrated to this country 30 years ago, I did so with a firm belief in the American system of government. During my tenure at the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, the United States Senate, and the FDIC, I have developed a deep appreciation for these venerable institutions and their traditions. It has been a tremendous honor to serve this nation, and I did not take a single day for granted. Throughout my public service, I have been constantly reminded how blessed we are to live in the United States of America,” the letter stated.

In December, McWilliams published an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal titled, “A Hostile Takeover of the FDIC.”

“Of the 20 chairmen who preceded me at the FDIC, nine faced a majority of the board members from the opposing party, including Mr. Gruenberg as chairman under President Trump until I replaced him as chairman in 2018,” McWilliams wrote. “Never before has a majority of the board attempted to circumvent the chairman to pursue their own agenda.”

“This conflict isn’t about bank mergers. If it were, board members would have been willing to work with me and the FDIC staff rather than attempt a hostile takeover of the FDIC internal processes, staff and board agenda.”

McWilliams’ resignation will go into effect on February 4.
