Elizabeth Warren launches exploratory committee in step toward 2020 presidential run

Alex Pappas By Alex Pappas | Fox News


Did Sen. Warren's DNA disaster destroy identity politics?

Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren faces backlash for releasing result of her DNA test on her Native-American heritage; political science professor Dr. Jeanne Zaino and Republican strategist Holly Turner join the debate.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Monday she is filing paperwork to launch an exploratory committee for president, taking her first major step toward a 2020 run for the White House.


“Today, I’m launching an exploratory committee for president,” Warren, 69, a Democrat, said in a video released to supporters.

In her announcement, the liberal firebrand argued government "has been bought and paid for by a bunch of billionaires and giant corporations that think they get to dictate the rules that affect everyone," calling it "corruption, pure and simple."


"That’s not how government is supposed to work," Warren said. "You know it. I know it. And we know it is time to fight back."


As for details about her campaign, Warren said she'll "announce a plan" early in the new year.

Warren burst onto the national scene a decade ago during the financial crisis with calls for greater consumer protections. She quickly became one of the party's more prominent liberals even as she sometimes fought with Obama administration officials over their response to the market turmoil.

Now, as a likely presidential contender, she is making an appeal to the party's base. Her video notes the economic challenges facing people of color along with images of a women's march and Warren's participation at an LGBT event.

Warren is the most prominent Democrat yet to make a move toward a presidential bid and has long been a favorite target of President Trump.

In October, Warren took the rare step of releasing DNA test results examining her possible Native American ancestry, in apparent response to persistent criticism from Trump and other Republicans.


Warren for years has been accused of exaggerating her Native American heritage to help get a job as a Harvard law professor. The president, highlighting the controversy that has dogged her since her first campaign for the Senate, routinely uses the nickname “Pocahontas” for her.

The results released by Warren revealed “strong evidence” that Warren had a Native American ancestor dating back six to 10 generations. But the test may have caused new issues with the Native American community.

The Cherokee Nation responded to the results at the time by arguing that “a DNA test is useless to determine tribal citizenship.”

"Current DNA tests do not even distinguish whether a person’s ancestors were indigenous to North or South America," Cherokee Nation Secretary of State Chuck Hoskin Jr. said in a press release.

The DNA test was widely seen as an effort to put the controversy behind her, ahead of an expected run for the White House.

In mid-December, former Obama housing chief Julian Castro also announced a presidential exploratory committee, which legally allows potential candidates to begin raising money. Outgoing Maryland Rep. John Delaney is the only Democrat so far to have formally announced a presidential campaign.

But that's likely to change quickly in the new year as other leading Democrats take steps toward White House runs.

Warren enters a Democratic field that's shaping up as the most crowded in decades, with many of her Senate colleagues openly weighing their own campaigns, as well as governors, mayors and other prominent citizens. One of her most significant competitors could be Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent who is eyeing another presidential run harnessing the same populist rhetoric.

Elizabeth Warren launches 2020 exploratory committee: 5 things to know about the Massachusetts senator


Jennifer Earl By Jennifer Earl | Fox News


Elizabeth Warren wants the government to manufacture its own generic drugs, but what would happen during a shutdown?



Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has long been rumored as a potential Democratic contender in the 2020 presidential election, has taken a major step in her political career by forming an exploratory committee for president.



Warren made a splash Monday when she released a campaign-style video that slams the "corrupt" government, making an appeal to her party's base.


"[The government] has been bought and paid for by a bunch of billionaires and giant corporations that think they get to dictate the rules that affect everyone," Warren tells supporters, adding, "that’s not how the government is supposed to work. You know it. I know it. And we know it is time to fight back."


In the New Year, Warren vowed to announce a more detailed plan. Before she does, here's a look at five things you should know about the lawmaker.

She taught at Harvard

Warren began teaching at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts back in the early 1990s. She started as a visiting professor and eventually landed a role as the Leo Gottlieb Professor of Law, specializing in bankruptcy law. When Warren was hired at the Ivy League school, there were only 60 tenured female professors, according to The Daily Beast.

According to Harvard, Warren has written more than 100 educational articles and ten books. She’s also been awarded several teaching awards — at least two from Harvard.

“National Law Journal named her one of the Most Influential Lawyers of the Decade, TIME magazine has named her one of the 100 most influential people in the world three times, and she has been honored by the Massachusetts Women's Bar Association with the Lelia J. Robinson Award,” Harvard touts in a biography of Warren on its website.

She was previously registered Republican

Running as a Democrat, Warren was open about her party switch during her 2012 Senate run in Massachusetts.

In October 2011, she told The Daily Beast that she was registered Republican well into her 40s.

“I was a Republican because I thought that those were the people who best supported markets. I think that is not true anymore,” Warren, now 69, told the publication. “I was a Republican at a time when I felt like there was a problem that the markets were under a lot more strain. It worried me whether or not the government played too activist a role.”


Warren wouldn’t reveal who exactly she voted for during that time period, though she did hint that she mixed it up over the years.

“There should be some Republicans and some Democrats,” she added.

She's a prominent critic of Wall Street

Warren has been a vocal critic of Wall Street — originally conceiving what became the government's Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Former President Barack Obama appointed Warren to serve as assistant to the president and special advisor to the secretary of the treasury on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in September 2010.

"The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau will crack down on the abusive practices of unscrupulous mortgage lenders, reinforce the new credit card law we passed banning unfair rate hikes, and ensure that folks aren't unwittingly caught by overdraft fees when they sign up for a checking account. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau will be a watchdog for the American consumer, charged with enforcing the toughest financial protections in history. I am very grateful that Elizabeth has agreed to serve in this important role of getting the Consumer Financial Bureau up and running and making it as effective as possible," Obama said in an online statement at the time.

Warren burst onto the national scene during the financial crisis with calls for greater consumer protections. She quickly became one of the party's more prominent liberals even as she sometimes fought with Obama administration officials over their response to the market turmoil.

She was once named "Bostonion of the Year"

In 2009, Warren was named "Bostonion of the Year" by the Boston Globe for her accomplishments as chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel on the Troubled Asset Relief Program.

"The great cause of her life has been defending middle-class Americans against what she calls the 'tricks and traps' the nation’s financial institutions devise to separate those citizens from their money," the Globe wrote in a December 2009 article.

The local newspaper praised Warren's efforts in Washington.

"She is equally scornful of how the credit card companies bury their real brigandage under a blizzard of sub-paragraphs and dependent clauses. And ever since last November, when Senate majority leader Harry Reid persuaded her to take charge of the Congressional Oversight Panel, and even though she is aware that the panel does not have any real enforcement powers, Warren has become a burr under the saddle of official Washington -- plain-spoken, invariably polite, intolerant of business-school persiflage ('That’s a word we don’t use enough!' she exclaims), and utterly contemptuous of conventional wisdom," the publication continued.

She’s the first female senator from Massachusetts

In 2012, Warren defeated incumbent Sen. Scott Brown, a Republican, to become the first female senator in Massachusetts' history.

“I will always carry your stories with me in my heart,” Warren said in a victory speech at the time, according to the Boston Globe. “I won’t just be your senator. I will be your champion.”

The Democrat field of 2020 is similar to that of GOP field of 2016;
In that, there is no clear cut favorite this time around and I suspect you will a lot of interest by way of exploratory committees in the front-end.

Elizabeth Warren is not exactly the type of candidate that grows your base , if all of America was full of die hard liberals who hated trump she'd be perfect


but its not , she'd win all the blue states but how is she going to grow the base in red states when your that far to the left politically


and what happens if she does win ? she'd be hated by republicans who already can't stand her with a passion . the mid terms in 2022 would be a disaster , democrats would have long since lost there motivation to vote with trump gone and the republican base would be fired up as there'd be a far left liberal trying to implement her wacky agenda . they'd likely lose everything in the house they just gained

they'd be back to square one but have Warren as president and I don't know if that's anything to be excited about

whats interesting is a lot of the democratic presidential candidates are coming out against big money in politics , billionaires who buy elections


except they were oddly quiet when democrat billionaires bought the house mid term elections for the democrats , apparently that was ok ? when they gave millions of dollars to the democrats


the field will certainly get bigger and other big names will enter , the first primary in Iowa will be very entertaining to say the least . although the race will likely drag on for some time after that vote , doubt as obvious favorite will emerge that soon

Elizabeth Warren leads Democrats' 2020 contenders -- in bad timing


Colin Reed OPINION By Colin Reed | Fox News



Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren launches exploratory committee ahead of possible 2020 presidential run

Warren takes a big step toward joining what's expected to be a crowded Democratic presidential primary field.

For the second time in less than three months, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., made major news at a bizarre time. In mid-October, when the country was focused on the midterm elections, Warren released a video on her Native American ancestry that failed in spectacular fashion. Monday, as America prepares to ring in 2019, Warren launched a 2020 presidential exploratory committee, also via video release. The verdict on her latest endeavor is still out, but there are red flags waving, and they all come back to the issue of timing.

By launching first, Warren gets ahead of the rest of the salivating pack of Democratic presidential hopefuls. In an ideal world, being first in would lead to a bounce from a cycle of flattering news coverage. But it’s New Year’s Eve, and most people are focused on anything but presidential politics. Plus, the early reviews from the press are far from flattering, littered with references to her unproven claims of Native American ancestry. In their write-up of Warren’s video, the Associated Press described her clean-up efforts as “widely panned,” while NPR noted that Cherokee Nation called her DNA testing “useless.”


Even in these fast-paced news cycles, the Native American issue has burned on organically for more than six years. None of her Democratic opponents have weaponized the scandal against her. If and when they decide to do so, they will cut at an issue near and dear to the hearts of progressives: did Warren abuse an affirmative action program she wasn’t entitled to by falsely claiming minority status?


So why go today? As former Obama communications director Anita Dunn told the Boston Globe, Warren “had what I think many people believe was a very rocky fall.” Standing still meant the risk of getting lumped in with all the other looming presidential announcements, and potentially never making it out of the starting gate.

Warren begins her journey in a position of weakness. Unlike 2016 when activists were begging her to run with DRAFT WARREN movements, the Massachusetts Senator feels like yesterday’s news. Polls indicate that Democrats are in the mood for a fresh face, with a survey from USA Today/Suffolk University last week showing voters "excited" about a potential candidate that is "someone new."

In 2016, Warren’s path to the nomination faced only the underwhelming Hillary Clinton and the socialist Bernie Sanders. Now, she’s staring up at a talented field of as many as 40 contenders. It includes the party’s brightest stars in Congress, and outsider candidates with unlimited financial resources like former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg or San Francisco hedge fund manager Tom Steyer or even a wild card celebrity like Starbucks’ Howard Schultz or Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.

To say Warren’s Democratic competition has improved over the last four years is an understatement. Plus, if she survives the primary, she will likely face President Trump at the other end. While his political standing has weakened, he is still a sitting president with the power of incumbency, and the proven ability to obliterate his opponents.

As for the content of Warren’s video, it too felt dated. Clocking in at four and a half minutes, it’s too long in this era of 280 characters and shortening attention spans.

It is rife with her usual angry riffs against billionaires, corporations and big banks – the same messages she propelled onto the national scene a decade ago as the self-described creator of the Occupy Wall street movement. But Bernie Sanders now owns the market on bashing “millionaires and billionaires.” Big tech companies have replaced big banks as liberals’ villains du jour. Two months ago, Democrats rode health care to win back the House of Representatives. Warren mentions it only once in her video, buried nearly halfway through. Health care is not an issue that comes as easily and naturally to Warren as bank bashing.

When Warren launched her 2012 Senate bid, she was written off by some. Just as it was wrong to write her off then, it would be wrong to dismiss her in 2020. She gave rise to the angry populist movement that fuels today’s liberal left. But times change. The movement grew up. It has new owners now. The moment for Warren’s presidential dreams came and went in 2016, and she missed her mark – a lesson she is about to learn the hard way.

Elizabeth Warren is a case study on how women make careers in our time. At least the women ih politics.

Don't believe her 'log cabin' background. She told the story of how her parents had to elope because of her father's family's bigotry about their son marrying a 'half-breed'. It's all fiction. She grew up in a middle-class home, although her father fell ill and became an invalid. There were financial difficulties staying in the middle class, not living on oatmeal.
She and married early. Her husband of 10 years was divorced when Warren saw an opportunity to "trade up".

She married one of her law professors ... which gave her legal career a shot in the arm.

Poor? Her net worth is estimated as between $4 million and $10 million.

Warren apologizes for Native American claim, signals there may be other documents out there




Edmund DeMarche By Edmund DeMarche, Jason Donner | Fox News



Elizabeth Warren



Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., on Wednesday was once again forced to apologize for claiming Native American ancestry on a 1986 registration card for the Texas state bar, and left the door open that there may be more documents out there with a similar claim.

The controversy appears to be difficult for the senator to put behind her. She had been planning to formally launch her presidential campaign on Saturday. A reporter on Wednesday asked if she would drop out of the race and she responded, "Thank you."


Fox News' Shepard Smith called Warren's actions "cultural appropriation." A Boston Globe columnist wrote flatly: With latest revelation, Elizabeth Warren can't beat Donald Trump.

Questions about Warren’s heritage date to at least 2012, when her Republican opponent seized on the issue during her first Senate campaign to wrongly argue she identified as a Native American to advance her career. President Donald Trump frequently deploys a racial slur to criticize Warren.


Warren, who apologized last Friday to the Cherokee Nation for revealing the results of a DNA test last autumn that showed just a trace amount of Native American lineage, was asked if there are any other documents where she claimed the ancestry.

"So all I know is during this time period, this is consistent with what I did because it was based on my understanding from my family's stories," she said. "But family stories are not the same as tribal citizenship."

The registration card was first reported by The Washington Post. Fox News has verified the document, which marks the first known instance of Warren claiming Native American ancestry on an official document.

Hillary Chabot, a reporter at The Boston Herald, wrote that the senator is looking to distance herself from the scandal, but brought up the wealth issue as another potential headache for Warren.


"Warren has worked hard to craft a narrative as a scrappy Dust Bowl native ready to take down vast corporations and billionaires like Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz. But she usually fails to mention her own vast wealth," she wrote, pointing out that Warren and her husband are worth as much as $11 million.

Paulette Jordan, a former Democratic state representative in Idaho and a member of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe, told The Associated Press, “It’s not exactly how you’d want to enter the arena” as a presidential candidate.

WARREN WORTH MILLIONS

She apologized in private last week to the principal chief of the Cherokee Nation for “causing confusion on tribal sovereignty and tribal citizenship and the harm that resulted,” said tribal spokeswoman Julie Hubbard.

“I am not a tribal citizen. Tribes, and only tribes, determine citizenship,” Warren said, adding, “I have apologized for not being more sensitive to that distinction. It’s an important distinction.”

( Warren seems to be the dream candidate for Trump , a millionaire herself calling for more taxes on the rich well also claiming to be native . unfortuently I don't think the democrats are crazy enough to choose her )


Class warrior Elizabeth Warren still worth millions, latest financial filings show


Adam Shaw By Adam Shaw | Fox News



Elizabeth Warren calls out billionaire 'freeloaders', apologizes to Cherokee nation

Sen. Warren introduces 'ultra-millionaire' tax and apologizes for her DNA test ; David Spunt reports.

Democratic presidential hopeful and class warrior Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is still worth millions, new financial records show -- as she pushes a new wealth tax aimed at millionaires and billionaires.


According to Warren’s presidential candidate personal financial disclosure, obtained by The Center for Public Integrity, Warren is worth somewhere between roughly $4 million and $10 million. The exact number is not clear as the report includes ranges for various investments and income streams, rather than exact amounts.



The center reports that she’s earning some money from book royalties from various publications. But the bulk of her wealth is held in bond and mutual funds, as it has been for years. The forms also show Warren retaining her title as “emeritus professor” at Harvard.



Warren’s wealth has been no secret, but could become a political target in 2020 for anyone looking to chip away at her image as a left-wing economic populist who has rallied for everyday workers against big banks and the ultra-rich.



Warren has taken a consistently hard-left approach to taxation, tax avoidance and income inequality. Last month, she called for a “wealth tax” on Americans with more than $50 million in assets. Warren's filing indicates she would fall below that threshold.


"We need structural change. That’s why I’m proposing something brand new – an annual tax on the wealth of the richest Americans. I’m calling it the 'Ultra-Millionaire Tax' & it applies to that tippy top 0.1% – those with a net worth of over $50M," Warren tweeted.

She went on to claim that it would generate almost $3 trillion over 10 years.


Her pitch is likely to be greeted positively by the party’s base, which has shown signs of lurching to the left in recent years -- with 2020 candidates following and embracing once-fringe policies such as a Green New Deal and "Medicare-for-all."

Warren has announced an exploratory committee for a presidential run, and is expected to formally announce her candidacy on Saturday.

Warren picks a faded mill city for presidential announcement


The Associated Press
Published: February 8, 2019 - 6:12 AM

Updated: February 8, 2019 - 7:30 AM



LAWRENCE, Mass. — When U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren officially jumps into the race for president, it won’t be from her Cambridge hometown where Harvard and MIT reside, or nearby Boston, where presidential hopefuls have launched campaigns over the generations.

Instead, the 69-year-old Democrat is widely expected to kick off her campaign Saturday some 30 miles (50 kilometres) north in Lawrence, a faded mill city that’s one of New England’s poorest and most heavily Latino.

The struggling city, once a centre of the American textile industry and where one of the nation’s most significant labour strikes occurred, provides a fitting backdrop for Warren’s economic message of fighting for workers in the face of powerful corporate interests and a growing wealth divide.

With a long tradition of welcoming immigrants, the nearly 80 per cent Latino city is also a place where the fight over immigration deeply resonates.

“Lawrence is a microcosm of the story Democrats want to tell about where America has been and where it wants to be,” said John Cluverius, a political science professor at the University of Massachusetts in nearby Lowell. “It’s an industrial city where American workers fought for fair wages and labour conditions. It’s also an immigrant city that’s grown from many of the policies that President Trump and Republicans now oppose, like family or chain migration.”

But what makes the city, where more than 80 per cent of voters picked Hillary Clinton in 2016, ideal for Democrats also makes it an easy foil for Republicans.

President Donald Trump and governors in neighbouring Maine and New Hampshire have called out Lawrence for being a hub for the lethal heroin and fentanyl trade. They’ve taken aim at the city for its sanctuary city policies limiting co-operation with federal immigration enforcement agencies.

“Ending sanctuary cities is crucial to stopping the drug addiction crisis,” Trump argued last March, citing a Dartmouth College study that found Lawrence was one of the primary sources of fentanyl in six New Hampshire counties.

Democratic Mayor Dan Rivera acknowledged his city’s reputation for crime and corruption has been difficult to shake, but he pointed to signs of progress.

Trendy cafes and restaurants are starting to take their place among the vacant storefronts, barber shops, convenience stores and other modest businesses downtown.

A smattering of biotech and other firms have moved in among revitalized mill buildings, and sneaker company New Balance’s towering factory along the Merrimack River is among the most visible links to the city’s manufacturing past.

“There was a time when politicians wouldn’t want to be seen in Lawrence,” Rivera said. “But Lawrence isn’t just the bad things in the past. There’s so much going here.”

In downtown Lawrence this week, news of Warren’s visit was greeted with surprise and curiosity.

Many welcomed the positive attention as the city recovers from a series of natural gas explosions and fires. The September disaster killed one resident, injured dozens more, damaged scores of homes and businesses, and left thousands without gas service for heating and cooking for weeks as winter set in.

Susan Sirois, who heads Bread and Roses, a soup kitchen named after the city’s famous 1912 strike, is among many hoping that Warren offers tangible solutions to the challenges facing Lawrence and many other old cities in her speech Saturday.

“She has to if she’s coming here. She has to,” Sirois said. “We might be the poorest city in Massachusetts, but this is not an aberration. This is the United States. This is the way it is.”

A resident of nearby Salem, New Hampshire, Sirois is a registered Democrat who voted for Clinton in 2016 but hasn’t decided whom she’ll back in 2020.

Across the street from the Everett Mills, where Warren is set to speak Saturday, Carmen Reyes was excited at the prospect of hearing from the senator she’s back in both her senate campaigns. The 60-year-old registered Democrat, who voted for Clinton in 2016, said Warren would be her pick if the presidential election was today.

“I really want a woman president,” Reyes said. “She can probably do a lot better than what the current one is doing.”

But a few blocks over, at El Taller cafe, David Cabrera was less willing to commit to a candidate this early.

The 47-year-old telecommunications salesman, who is unaffiliated, said he’s intrigued by U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, of Ohio, and former U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, of Texas — neither of whom has confirmed a presidential candidacy — but would vote for Warren if she was the Democratic Party’s nominee.

“I find her to be a little more to the left than I would prefer,” he said. “Free college tuition, for example, sounds wonderful, but what are our taxes going to look like after that happens? How is it going to affect what I take home?”
