Americans, Warren argues, is worthy of a “Treasury-Secretary, who is fighting for you-not someone who for a decade to make money for themselves at the expense of hundreds of thousands of Sears employees.”

The video highlights the connections between Mnuchin and Eddie Lampert, Mnuchin old college roommate and the subject of a lawsuit claiming that he was deprived improperly Sears of its assets. Lampert, the former CEO and Chairman of the Board of Sears, appointed Mnuchin, also named in the suit, to Sears’ Board in front of the drive, “the company claimed in the ground,” Ocasio-Cortez.
