Elizabeth Warren’s daughter cashed in on her mother’s position

January 28, 2020

  Of course we already know how Hunter Biden was able to bankroll his father’s position into millions of dollars, as did Nancy Pelosi’s daughter and others, and now we are learning that Elizabeth Warren’s daughter was also getting in on the act. Here is more:

Amelia Warren Tyagi, daughter of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), piggybacked off her mother to cash in on corporate clients for her new company during the presidential hopeful’s time chairing the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) oversight committee

Warren’s daughter, Amelia, demonstratively benefited from her mother’s position of power, using Warren’s influence to grow the company she co-founded in 2007.

BTG did not have a smooth start. As Profiles in Corruption points out, temp businesses are “largely about corporate connections” — connections which exploded after Warren landed her job as the chair of the TARP oversight committee, which “played a central role in the federal government’s bailout of financial firms”:

At the same time that Elizabeth Warren was meeting and talking with major Wall Street investment firms, her daughter’s firm BTG was adding high-profile advisors with connections to the same companies who would benefit and face possible scrutiny from TARP. 

BTG went from a $4 million in revenue, with 200 people in its talent pool in 2009, to over $11 million in revenue and roughly 1,800 in its web over a three-year span.

Warren moved to establish “direct lines of communication with the executives of the most powerful financial firms in the country.” While she attempted to project a hardline, no-nonsense attitude against Wall Street giants, she struck a friendly tone behind closed doors

All of that, Schweizer noted, “occurred while her daughter Amelia was building BTG.”

  This is just a sample, there is much more information if  you follow the link, but suffice it to say that while Elizabeth Warren was cutting her political teeth by going after big corporations, behind the scenes she was building connections and these connections happened to benefit her daughter.

  Amelia Warren Tyagi, you didn’t build that…

    It’s called equitable distribution of ill gotten gains. If Mrs Bernie and daughter Bernie can navigate the financial ruin of a long standing college and misappropriate its funds why shouldn’t Warren’s daughter also cash in on the name game?

    “… cutting her political teeth” well stated Steve.
    And a nice finishing touch ~ ‘didn’t build that’ 👏
    The image that came to was a swarm of piranhas.
    Isn’t it time … to get politicians OUT! replace them with ‘people who really work “for The People”, build real bridges that go somewhere worth going to and build buildings that serve a good purpose! Anyone with a healthy conscience wouldn’t be a “politician” (def: contrivance, disparaging, the {Dark} art or science of government).
    Maybe they’ll just take each other out for us (a God Blessing unfold!)!

    The latest wrinkle….as an aside, my understanding is that in the past, WH staff members had to sign an agreement that no books would be published by staff members during the tenure of the President. What happened to that?
    The dike has been broken… more of these cozy dealings will come to light…

      That is interesting and I think I heard something like that before. It makes sense just in case somebody leaves the White House under bad terms and now we are seeing why. You would think that Trump would have thought about this but apparently he did not and he is paying the price.
