Don’t Be Fooled by Warren’s Rhetoric; She Spent 2017 Building Inroads on Wall Street

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) spent much of 2017 building the infrastructure for a possible 2020 presidential run, and this included holding meetings with top Wall Street executives that in the past Warren has publicly bashed.

Politico reported on Tuesday about staffing hires that Warren made in 2017 and several meetings that Warren had with influential individuals from various industries.

One meeting Politico highlighted was a summer get-together between Warren and the CEO of JPMorgan Chase, Jamie Dimon.

The New York Times first reported on the meeting between Dimon and Warren in September:

“She attended a party fund-raiser in July at the summer residence of a former UBS executive, and also this summer she met privately in Washington with JPMorgan Chase’s chief executive, Jamie Dimon.”

The fundraiser the Times is referring to in their story was an exclusive fundraiser that Warren attended at the Martha’s Vineyard home of former UBS executive Robert Wolf, in 2017.

Dimon once accused Warren of not fully understanding how the global banking system works.

“The problem is not that I don’t understand the global banking system. The problem for these guys is that I fully understand the system and I understand how they make their money. And that’s what they don’t like about me,” Warren told the Huffington Post, in response to Dimon’ comments.

Dimon’s own increased presence in Washington, D.C. in 2017 has drawn speculation that he might be considering a 2020 presidential run.

It’s unclear what Warren’s meeting with Dimon was about in 2017. One thing that is clear is that Warren seems to be attempting to improve her relationship with Wall Street ahead of a possible 2020 presidential run.
