of Donald Trump’s presidency.

On this episode of The New York Public Library Podcast, Jelani Cobb looks back to Joseph McCarthy as a master manipulator of the media, inspecting the Wisconsin senator’s behavior toward the press for clues about today’s relationship between politicians and journalists. He examines the dynamics at play in the 2016 election, the role played by print, broadcast, and social media, and the implications of those dynamics for the fourth estate on the more immediate and long-term futures of American politics. Cobb also uses his experience teaching in Russia to help think through what could have made Russia interested in influencing the American presidential election in the first place. Listen now.

The White House Just Used a Brazen Backdoor Move to Bypass the Senate
A loophole allowed the Trump administration to install a Wall Street lawyer to take over one of the nation’s most powerful regulators without a hearing or confirmation.
By Bess Levin

As you may recall, Donald Trump promised to gut the protections of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, because it interferes with the ability of banks and other business to make lots of money at the expense of ordinary consumers I mean to create jobs. To accomplish this, he’d need someone friendly to head the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), which is in charge of regulating Wall Street.

Trump wanted to appoint Keith Noreika, a Wall Street financial services lawyer who has worked closely with the same Wall Street companies that the OCC regulates. The head of the OCC, however, is a position that the Senate must confirm, and Noreika’s past work has left him with substantial financial and ethical conflicts of interest. So Trump and his Treasury Secretary, Steven Mnuchin, came up with a way to do it without any potential embarrassment:

  1. Appoint Noreika as “first deputy” at the OCC.
  2. Fire the current head of the OCC.

Noreika automatically became “acting comptroller,” with no Senate hearings or confirmation, no disclosure of his former clients, and no ethics pledge.
