Elizabeth Warren spoke out on corruption last night, taking direct aim at President Trump. Warren also singled out Roger Stone, whose sentencing for a conviction for several counts of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to Congress compelled four DOJ prosecutors to abruptly resign on Tuesday.
“On a day when career prosecutors showed more backbone than almost every Republican senator standing up to this President.”
Our best chance of beating Donald Trump is with a candidate who can do the hard, disciplined work. A candidate who can build a movement that is ready to take on corruption in Washington—and win. pic.twitter.com/afEhQd2rnP

Of course it didn’t take long for Trump to respond on Twitter.
Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to as Pocahontas, is having a really bad night. I think she is sending signals that she wants out. Calling for unity is her way of getting there, going home, and having a “nice cold beer” with her husband!

Warren’s comments join Kamala Harris and Hillary Clinton’s, who also voiced their condemnation of Trump earlier that day.
This is yet another example of there being two systems of justice in America: one for Trump and his buddies, and another for everyone else. This is a complete mockery of the rule of law.
The Senate cannot ignore this. We need oversight hearings immediately. https://t.co/yTVGHM8BCT
