Washington, DC - United States Senator Elizabeth Warren today sent a letter to President-Elect Trump raising serious concerns about the special interest lobbyists, Wall Street bankers, and industry insiders who are staffing his transition team and who will shape the new administration.

The senator wrote, "Based on public reports, your transition team and your potential cabinet include over twenty Wall Street elites, industry insiders, and lobbyists making decisions that could have huge implications for their clients or employers. They include, among many others, a former Goldman Sachs executive who is rumored to be a Treasury Secretary pick; a paid consultant for Verizon who is making key decisions on your administration's Federal Communication Commission; a 'top lobbyist' whose firm lobbied on behalf of issues related to the Trans-Pacific Partnership who is shaping your Labor Department; and a climate-change-denying, oil industry-paid think tank fellow who is leading your environmental team's transition."

She continued, "You made numerous promises to the American people in your election campaign, none bigger than the promise to ‘drain the swamp' of Washington D.C. special interests rigged against the middle class. The decisions you make with your transition team will shape the next four years of this nation. They will also reflect the strength of your character and your ability to truly lead--not just follow the marching orders of the special interests and Wall Street bankers you purportedly oppose."

Senator Warren called on President-Elect Trump to remove the lobbyists and special interest insiders from his transition team and replace them with advisors who will fight for the interests of the American people. She stated, "Let me be clear. Should you refuse, I will oppose you, every step of the way, for the next four years. I will champion the millions of Americans you will fail to protect. I will track your every move, and I will remind Americans, every day, of the actions you take that fail them. And I will not be the only one watching. The millions of Americans who voted for you - and the millions who didn't - will all be watching you."

Look I'm no fan of Warren but c'mon folks Trump is not a benefit to America and judging from his character he would gladly surrender himself to Wall Street if they offered him concessions.

What a dumbass, Trump always said we have the best people to negotiate for the US and would pick people from business not political hacks with no skills or talents in the real world.
This mad woman would only be happy if he picked hobos off the street or progressive ideologs.

Yeah, even though she knows they are paid by Soros too...

I think these washed up Dems are just latching on to the only
thing they have left, rancorous rhetoric.

Goes all the way back to Hillary Clinton and Edward Brooke
being the first black Senator...she just had to stick her neck
out and criticize him. Well how is she liking that now...

Then why did Trump appointed Rudy Giuliani, a well known Wall Street shill, as Secretary Of State?

Hobos? I don't think so, How about non establishment leaning person?

Ah, that's what I was worried about with supporters of whoever won, the people that knew about establishment corruption would allow if because 'their guy' likes the people.

He should try to convince men like Elon Musk to assume positions in his cabinet, then # might actually get done.

The men who are there have no imagination and keep pushing a 3500 year old Greek philosophy they don't even comprehend. They cherry pick their philosophy, they are no better then the religious.

Politicians are Sofists posing as experts. We need experts being experts, we don't need posers.

The establishment is still well-established, so some establishment types are needed to bring down the establishment from within.

Since they are not elected, Trump can fire them at anytime if they betray the people in favor fo the establishment.

It's easy to get # done with $4.9 billion (with a B) in government gravy.

If it's so easy why isn't everyone doing it?

Unless you meant it was easy for him, because he is a genius. It probably wasn't that hard for him. But I seriously doubt anyone would call what Elon Musk has done easy.

He solved the world's energy problems with 4.9 billion. When has a politician done anything that extraordinary with that amount of money?

Do you want to have a discussion about how subsidized Donald Trump is? Or how his father built his business on government grants?

Meanwhile, Elon Musk is out there making the future and Donald Trump has been slapping his name on buildings, many of which he didn't have anything to do with the construction of.

Did anyone seriously believe Trump wouldn’t break these promises.

Trump lied and deceived his gullible followers who will still deny what he’s doing even though he’s doing it right in their face.

Trump voters are what's known in conman parlance as marks

It's not just Elizabeth Warren. The liberal MSM still thinks they're in a majority position too! It's amazing how all of these LOSERS think that the WINNERS will follow their advice and desire for "inclusiveness".

Like the Japanese did in the 1940's, the Democrats waved their WHITE FLAG of surrender 7 days ago.
