.@WikiLeaks: This @BarackObama Administration Is Brought To You By Citigroup pic.twitter.com/9wFRqSrymv— The Young Turks (@TheYoungTurks) October 26, 2016
Note: Micahel Froman was on President Obama's transition team which explains the large number of names submitted by him. But this doesn't negate any of the analysis about Citi influence.
Most fascinating, Froman and Obama knew each other from their days together at Harvard Law School. But here is the kicker, Froman grew up in northern California but hooked up again with Obama,13 years after Harvard Law, to provide "policy advice" to Obama's 2004 Illinois U.S. Senate campaign.
Conspiracy theorists who hold the view that Obama was picked early on to be a presidential candidate should look deeper into Froman. If there ever was a guy that looked like a deep state guy and Obama's control, Froman sure does.
Michael B. Froman (born August 20, 1962)is an American lawyer who has served as the U.S. Trade Representative since 2013. He has been Assistant to the President of the United States and Deputy National Security Advisor for International Economic Affairs, a position held jointly at the National Security Council and the National Economic Council. In that position he served as the United States sherpa to the G7, G8, and G20 summits of economic powers. On May 2, 2013 President Barack Obama nominated him to succeed Ambassador Ron Kirk as the U.S. Trade Representative...Expect Froman to be a major influence in a Clinton Administration if Hillary is elected.
He was Deputy Assistant Secretary for Eurasia and the Middle East, where his work was related to economic policy towards the former Soviet Union, Central and Eastern Europe, as well as economic components of the Dayton Accords. He was a Senior Fellow at the Council of Foreign Relations and a Resident Fellow at the German Marshall Fund.
