- The White House is vetting former Trump adviser Judy Shelton for nomination to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, according to reports.
- The potential nominee has been critical of the central bank and would like to change some of the core ways it operates.
- In an interview with Markets Insider, she said she thought it would be “superficial” to solely answer yes or no to whether the central bank was independent, outlined a zero-percent inflation target, and expressed support for the president and his policies.
ROBERT STEELE: Everything about this person is positive. Not only would she make a superb Chairman of the Federal Reserve, she would make a great Secretary of the Treasury if and when the President tires of having Goldman Sachs sitting on him.
Her position against contrived inflation, and her position on asset backed currency and against currency manipulation (as well as exchange rate manipulation) is to the right of righeous. This is a GOOD person.
