Janet Yellen, president-elect Joe Biden’s choice to be treasury secretary, had to file disclosure forms as part of her nomination. This process revealed that Yellen collected over $7 million in speaking fees from major financial firms and tech giants over the past two years.

“But we have this treasure in jars of clay…”—2 Corinthians 4:7.
