Warren: Trump Administration the ‘Most Corrupt Administration Ever’

On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) responded to Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Interim Director Mick Mulvaney’s comments that there was a “hierarchy” in his Congressional office that he wouldn’t talk to lobbyists who didn’t give him money, but “might talk to” lobbyists who did by declaring the Trump administration the “Most corrupt administration ever.”

Warren said, “Most corrupt administration ever. I mean, come on, this is a man who stood up in front of 1,300 people and said, ‘You get to listen — the congressman will listen to you, but only if you pay.’ That’s called pay to play. And that’s just another way of saying, ‘This joint runs great for those who can hire armies of lobbyists and lawyers and have them make big campaign contributions, but not here for real people.'”
