    Sen. Warren Discusses Trump Shakeup

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) discusses recent staff changes at White House. 

    (Published Saturday, Feb. 10, 2018)

    Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren says the Trump administration should have known something wasn’t right well before the sudden resignations of two White House staffers amid allegations of abuse.

    "There was an investigation by the FBI into each of the people who have been accused," said Senator Warren at a town hall meeting in Franklin today. "Photographic evidence, if there were more questions to be asked, they should have been asked."

    President Trump tweeted today in part "Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by a mere allegation…Some are true and some are false...There is no recovery for someone falsely accused--life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?"

    "No one who has beaten women should be in a position of public trust in the White House," said Sen. Warren.

    The two men who resigned have denied the allegations against them.

    Meantime, the senator says the Democratic memo about the FBI’s conduct in the Russia probe--a memo that the President has blocked from release--should be out just like a Republican memo on the same issue.

    "When the President says one memo can go forward but not the other, he’s really just playing politics," said the senator.

    The president today tweeting today in part "The Democrats sent a very political and long response memo which they knew, because of sources and methods (and more), would have to be heavily redacted, whereupon they would blame the White House for lack of transparency…"

    "This isn’t about the American people being fully informed," said Warren. "This is about trying to make the American people hear Donald Trump’s point of view to defend himself."
