Democrats are reportedly HIDING Biden’s economic advisers (as well as Joe himself) - and there is a simple reason for that

By offering no specifics about his policies or advisers, Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden is letting supporters project their hopes and dreams onto his campaign. The strategy works, so long as he doesn’t open his mouth.
After drawing outrage from progressives for having Larry Summers – a neoliberal economist who ran the Treasury under Bill Clinton and later Harvard University – advising the campaign, back in April, Biden’s handlers have decided to keep mum about his advisers going forward.

Anyone advising Biden has been sworn to secrecy, banned from even acknowledging their relationship with the campaign, let alone revealing the names of other members, according to a New York Times feature on Thursday, titled ‘Biden’s Brain Trust on the Economy: Liberal and Sworn to Silence’.

“Simply put, do not talk to the press,” according to an email from the campaign the Times somehow obtained.

What little is known of Biden’s ‘brain trust’ suggests that it is staffed and overseen by veterans of Barack Obama's administration, which is par for the course in Washington. That raises the question of why the secrecy, since the Obama acolytes are generally proud of their record and can count on sympathetic media coverage to boot.

The obvious answer is President Donald Trump. During the 2016 campaign, he repeatedly hammered Hillary Clinton not just on character ('Crooked Hillary') but on policy positions, such as support for the Trans-Pacific Partnership, for example. By keeping the details of his policies secret, Biden’s campaign refuses to present a target for criticism, whether to Trump or to the hard-left activists inside the DNC
