(Before It's News)

An editorial at the FT:

Trump’s mudslinging puts the Fed in danger: So many extraordinary accusations and denunciations emanate from Donald Trump… One of the more potentially damaging is the contention that the Federal Reserve is setting policy to ensure the election of his opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Political criticism of the US central bank has been going on for decades. …

Yet it is offensive and absurd to suggest that Janet Yellen, the Fed chair, and her colleagues are deliberately trying to engineer the election of another Democratic president. At a time when the Fed has a low standing in the public mind, perhaps more disturbing than Mr Trump’s eccentric claims is that congressional Republicans, who should know better, are joining in. …

It is beyond hope that Mr Trump will see sense and moderate his attacks. His fellow Republicans, unless they are ready to endanger one of the pillars of US economic stability, should resist the urge to follow his example.
