Biden's Treasury Secretary Received Money From Hedge Fund

Newly-confirmed Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen received around $810,000 in speaking fees from the hedge fund that bailed out one of the primary losers in the recent Gamestop frenzy.

Yellen's financial disclosure shows her making $337,500 for multiple days in Oct. of 2020 from Citadel. She also banked $292,500 in October of 2019 and $180,000 in December of that year.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked Thursday during the daily briefing whether Yellen would recuse herself from advising the president on Gamestop. Of course like all other questions Psaki is asked, she didn't commit one way or another.
