Bloomberg called Warren 'scary' and vowed to 'defend the banks' in closed-door 2016 event

The audio is at this link:

https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/24/politics/kfile-bloomberg-called-warren-scary-and-defended-banks/index.html

"Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg said at a private event in 2016 that his presidential campaign platform would have been to "defend the banks" and also labeled the progressive movement and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, now a rival for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, as "scary."

When asked his views on the rise of the far right in Europe, Bloomberg warned about the rise of progressive politicians in the US, citing Warren.
"The left is arising. The progressive movement is just as scary," he says. "Elizabeth Warren on one side. And whoever you want to pick on the Republicans on the right side?"
"
Bloomberg, who was elected mayor as a Republican and as an independent, also criticized President Barack Obama, saying that his 2012 endorsement of Obama was "backhanded" and that he thought Republican Mitt Romney could have done a better job if he'd been elected."

6. I was told that only Sanders scares Wall St and financial industry. Warren wasn't

 

even running in 2016 and she scares the crap out of the powerful crooks. Because they know she knows every trick in the book that they use to keep the financial system rigged to benefit those at the top.

Warren’s lifetime of work is the REAL deal, not the lifetime of empty bombast and rhetoric that some prefer.

8. Yikes!!!

 

Audio of his comments, allegedly from a closed Goldman Sachs event for at Yankee Stadium on June 15, 2016, were anonymously sent to CNN by an email address called "CancelGoldman," with the author claiming he worked at Goldman Sachs for 14 years. The email called on Bloomberg to drop out of the race. The audio of the event, sent to CNN and a host of reporters was uploaded to audio hosting platform SoundCloud five days ago. Bloomberg's campaign confirmed the authenticity of the comments. CNN confirmed through Facebook photographs that Bloomberg took part in an event that day at Yankee Stadium. Goldman Sachs declined to comment, but did not dispute it was their event.
