Pelosi: Obama not soft on Wall Street, despite Warren criticism

Elizabeth Warren doesn't necessarily speak for the Democratic Party on issues relating to Wall Street, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said in an interview published Wednesday.

In an interview with CNBC, the San Francisco Democrat defended President Obama from accusations from the Left that he is too easy on banks, and suggested that there is not a consensus in the Democratic Party on matters pertaining to finance.

Asked if the Obama administration has been too close to banks, Pelosi responded that "the financial industry doesn't agree with that."

"There may have been a couple of people who say that, but that is not the consensus in our party," she added.
