Elizabeth Warren: I Will Launch Investigations Into the Trump Administration on Day One if Elected

Elizabeth Warren: I Will Launch Investigations Into the Trump Administration on Day One if Elected

Because 4+ years of fruitless, politically motivated investigations couldn’t possibly be enough, right?

For Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the struggle is real.

With her campaign floundering badly in the polls and herself under the microscope in the aftermath of the he said/she said “sexism” feud with Sen. Bernie Sanders, Warren is searching for new ways to re-energize her frustrated base and bring new voters into the fold at the same time.

She’s fond of saying she has a plan for everything. On Tuesday, she debuted her plan to “restore integrity and competence to government after Trump.”

She stated she has a fear that before Trump leaves office (if defeated), he will “do everything he can to undermine the next president.” Warren wrote that she has the vision to undo what she says Trump has done and the know-how to “get the government working for the people.”

And one of her first priorities to get the government “working for the people” again is to kick out almost all Trump appointees:

… and direct the Justice Department to investigate the Trump administration starting on Day One:

The details from her website show her extensive plans to investigate his administration:

Establish a Justice Department Task Force to investigate corruption during the Trump administration and to hold government officials accountable for illegal activity.

Donald Trump has run the most corrupt administration in history. He was impeached for withholding foreign aid in an effort to try to benefit his re-election campaign. He has enriched himself and his business through the power of his office. And there are public reports of potentially illegal corruption in every corner of his administration. If we are to move forward to restore public confidence in government and deter future wrongdoing, we cannot simply sweep this corruption under the rug in a new administration.

That’s why I will direct the Justice Department to establish a task force to investigate violations by Trump administration officials of federal bribery laws, insider trading laws, and other anti-corruption and public integrity laws, and give that task force independent authority to pursue any substantiated criminal and civil violations. I have also committed to establishing a task force to investigate accusations of serious violations by immigration officials.

Because 4+ years of fruitless, politically motivated investigations couldn’t possibly be enough, right?

Let’s assume a couple of extraordinary things solely for discussion. Let’s say Warren unexpectedly wins the Democratic presidential nomination and ends up defeating Trump in November.

After four years of non-stop attempts at impeaching Trump under false pretenses, four years in which the political divide between left and right has grown exponentially, Warren’s plan to “make government work” again is to continue ripping the country apart?

Just my personal opinion, of course, but I don’t think swing state Democrats and independents are going to like that. When the House held public impeachment inquiry hearings n November and December, independents and swing-state Democratic voters signaled in polls they didn’t like what Democrats were doing on impeachment. The support dropped among those key voting blocs.

Warren may think she has a “winner” with this proposal, but like her Medicare for All plan and the adverse reactions to it from members of her own party, the devil is in the details. And the information, in this case, shows that a woman who has integrity issues of her own is promising to keep stirring the Orange Man Bad pot because Democrats still can’t get over Hillary Clinton’s 2016 loss to Trump.

Ultimately this could come back to bite Warren in the fall should her campaign make it that far.

Just what America needs, another TDS inflicted investigation chasing shadows. The only ideas she has are bad ideas.

    Didn’t Lizzie first promise to investigate the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, the Perfect Man and Lizzie Borden?

    What she is promising is a DOJ unit armed with an unconstitutional General Warrant power. She is a dangerous clown. She has the most grating personality. Hectoring. Insincere. Hypocritical. Phony. A constantly angry school librarian chiding the pupils to be quiet.

For an incompetent guy, he sure has done well. Warren flipped some houses but Trump flips properties worth billions. He’s done more for the American economy in 3 years than the last 5 Presidents combined. Where is the corruption? It’s a good thing she’ll never be President.

She stated she has a fear that before Trump leaves office (if defeated), he will “do everything he can to undermine the next president.”

Well Mr. Trump would certainly have a roadmap for that, now wouldn’t he?

If Mr. Trump wanted to do such a thing I suspect he could do it very well — he’s turned out to be very, very good at insider hardball. He could certainly complicate things for the next president.

Didn’t the Obama Administration start moving their political appointees into civil employee positions where they would be protected against firing? So why couldn’t the same thing happen with Trump appointees?

And, didn’t Warren make some comments about how racists, sexists, etc the Trump judges were? So, is she going to increase the size of the judicial branch or just go after the various judges (i.e. impeach them on false charges)?

I can see Warren & Sanders do a lot of mischief if they get into office.

Squawcrow Warren is just about the worst major candidate I’ve seen in decades.

But, but the Dems told us that it is unAmerican to go after political opponents.

“She stated she has a fear that before Trump leaves office (if defeated), he will “do everything he can to undermine the next president.”” Like, if Warren is elected, removing all of the “W”s from the White House computer keyboards?? Oh, sorry, been done!

If only she could conjure up an idea that hasn’t been tried and failed at. She’s as useless as tits on Sitting Bull.

Yet another good reason not to vote for this lying fraud.

She’s only promising to do what a lot of people demanded (and are still demanding) that Trump do (and is doing) – investigate and prosecute members of the previous administration. Of course, the difference is that the Obama Administration was full of corruptocrats who committed myriad felonies, and so far, it looks like anybody in the Trump Admin who jaywalked is already being prosecuted.

She’s a desperate POS, and will say and do anything.

Imagine this psycho with the power of the presidency? Think: obama, without even trying to hide the treason and corruption.

The first things the Socialist-Democrats think of doing is those things they would do to counteract their own malfeasance, misfeasance and criminal actions. Of those things she listed, removing all the political appointees is the norm for Socialist-Democrats taking the Oval Office. That is one of the things the Republicans never seem to learn the lesson of why it is a good thing to do, and so they get backstabbing holdover political appointees leaking to the MSM and worse. I guess they don’t think of doing it because most Republican appointees wouldn’t stab the incoming administration in the back?

IF this lying POS ever gets to the Oval Office (or Veeps office), God help us all.

A comment from Powerline:

In the federal government, the fiscal year (fy) runs from October 1 through September 30 of the following year. On October 1, 2016, the 2017 fy began. It was still fy 2017 on January 20, 2017, when Trump was inaugurated. Between the 2026 election and the 2017 inauguration, the Obama administration spent nearly the entire fy 2017 National Security Council budget, thereby preventing Trump from being able to bring his own people aboard, at least until November 2017.

I’ve always maintained that Hilary Clinton isn’t a very bright woman but she is a brilliant intellectual compared to Warren.

The producers promise that the nth sequel will fill in the missing links. Critics, however, observe that the ball of yarns is progressive, that the managers and actors are self-impeaching, and that the production is not viable. Time will tell if audiences choose a resolution through planned party.

THis is not about TRump. THis is the democrats (and not just Warren) saying that they will prosecute anyone who dares oppose them and that if they regain control of the government political opposition is on notice that their opposition will be a criminal act.

    Actually, after the 2020 election, the President should seat a tribunal to investigate the sedition and treason of the Democrat Party. Of course, to be successful would require Russia and China to declassify plenty of documents that are an “insurance policy” for those countries when dealing the Democrats. Good luck on that one… as least we know of Teddy Kennedy’s offer to collude with the Russians.

Please, please, do not investigate the previous two Democrat Presidents. Neither had a real job, ever, and are now both multi millionaires. Nothing to see there.

Another one?

I pray the good Lord blesses those who help others. I also pray the good Lord removes the blinders from the voters eyes and gives them the courage to vote out career Demoncrat and RINO politicians whose first goal is to help themselves.

I think she is crazy enough to try it.

Why would Trump undermine another Republican?

I have to say one thing about the left, they are totally unafraid to use their power. Compare that coward Paul Ryan’s actions to that of the Democrats, where would Conservatives be today if he had actually been conservative?

You stupid bitch. If you want so badly to investigate someone, it should be your buddy Oshitbag.

She’s pathetic, but totally not deserving of our sympathy.

Sit down and shut up, Liz.

Warren and Pelosi look like they are auditioning to play the witches in MACBETH.

All the more reason not to let the Democrats control Congress, the Senate, or the White House.

No one believes you thin lizzie.

I just hope her wrists go slack so she will more and more continue to resemble a ghoul-like, giant praying mantis.

Meanwhile, her campaign has been iced while she warms the chair of her Senate Seat.
This single statement should be enough for Chief Justice Roberts to rule that she is a Prejudiced Juror and should be barred from casting a vote on the matter of Impeachment of POTUS.
