.@RepJayapal & I have the most ambitious anti-corruption legislation since Watergate to #EndCorruptionNow. This week, we got terrific news: with @RepJayapal's hard work & persistence, the House included — & passed — some key parts of it in the historic #ForThePeople Act:
Incoming administrations should work for the people, not lobbyists & industry insiders. The House passed our plan to force people who work on presidential transition teams to follow ethics rules like every other official. #EndCorruptionNow #ForThePeople
No more selling out to foreign governments that abuse human rights & undermine our national security. @RepJayapal made sure the House bill included our ban on Washington lobbyists from getting paid big bucks to lobby for foreign governments. #EndCorruptionNow #ForThePeople

1 year ago today, @realDonaldTrump & Republicans pulled a heist on the American people when they passed the #GOPTaxScam.

They said it would would help working families. Then they stole money from the middle class to help their billionaire donors instead. nytimes.com/interactive/20…
I don’t think a single working family in this country should pay more taxes so that big corporations & billionaires can pay less. But that’s what the #GOPTaxScam did – raising taxes on some middle class families & handing out $1.5 TRILLION in tax giveaways to the ultra wealthy.
In November, voters took the first step to hold Congress accountable for turning their backs on the American people. Now Congress can do more to help level the playing field, like passing the Accountable Capitalism Act & our plan to #EndCorruptionNow.

Saudi Arabia used American lobbyists to rent hundreds of Trump hotel rooms and dupe veterans into secretly pushing the Saudis' agenda. Bribing @realDonaldTrump is unconstitutional – but tricking veterans into lobbying for Saudi Arabia is totally legal. It shouldn't be.
Last week, I asked MSL Group and other US lobbying firms to explain their work representing the interests of Saudi Arabia in the wake of Jamal Khashoggi’s murder. MSL responded that they’re continuing business as usual and still working for the Saudis. politico.com/story/2018/11/…
US firms shouldn’t do the dirty work of repressive regimes and ruthless dictators. My plan to #EndCorruptionNow would ban Americans from lobbying on behalf of foreign governments. If other countries want to make their case, they can use their diplomats. vox.com/2018/8/21/1776…

No candidate should be able to negotiate a business deal with a foreign adversary while running for office. But that’s exactly what @realDonaldTrump did, according to his ex-crony Michael Cohen. This is a textbook case of corruption. nytimes.com/2018/11/29/nyr…
This is exactly why we should require candidates to release their tax returns when running for federal office, and prevent Presidents from owning business empires on the side. My bill to #EndCorruptionNow would do both. medium.com/@SenWarren/my-…
If you’re elected to public office, your job is to serve the public. Full stop. That’s why I’m working with @HouseDemocrats and @House_DRTF to advance legislation that ensures public officials work for the public interest.

all this talk about #Hussein is leading into his connections to the MB on a public stage.#Qteam and @POTUS are setting the stage/shifting the narrative to lead into the connections of the CF to #U1 and #IRAN through child trafficking & crimes against children in the IG report

Exhibit #237 of why anyone running for federal office should have to disclose their tax returns. Congress needs to pass my legislation to #EndCorruptionNow, which would force candidates (and @realDonaldTrump) to make their tax returns public. nyti.ms/2P6S6mK?smid=n…
.@realDonaldTrump was the 1st presidential candidate in 40 years not to make his tax returns public. Maybe because he got over $400M from his dad to start out & probably committed tax fraud. @nytimes’ reporting is likely just the tip of the iceberg – what else is he hiding?
If @realDonaldTrump was willing to go to such incredible lengths to hide how he really “made” his fortune – what’s stopping him now from bilking the presidency and American taxpayers for everything they’re worth?

My new bill would end business-as-usual in Washington and rip corruption out by the roots. Here's what I want you to know about the Anti-Corruption Act.
In Washington, the government-to-lobbying revolving door spins so fast that it could make you dizzy. The Anti-Corruption Act puts a padlock on that door, and reins in the lobbyists.
Let’s ban federal elected & top appointed officials from becoming lobbyists after they leave office. Not for one year. Not for two years. For the rest of their lives. It’s all part of our new bill to #EndCorruptionNow. Sign the petition: elizabethwarren.com/endcorruptionn…

.@SenWarren is LIVE calling out the culture of corruption in Washington and introducing bold new legislation to end it. Tune in: #EndCorruptionNow
.@SenWarren: "Across the board, our government is failing to fix the problems that face our working families. It's making the problems worse by giving more power, more money and more advantages to those who already have all three." #EndCorruptionNow
.@SenWarren: The recent explosion of political spending has delivered a gut punch to American democracy... Big money has created a pervasive culture of soft corruption in Washington that colors nearly every decision Congress makes.

RT if you agree: We need to #EndCorruptionNow.

Corruption in Washington isn’t a small problem – and we can’t fight it with small solutions. I’m about to unveil my legislation to #EndCorruptionNow and put a stop to it once and for all. Watch live here:
Our government systematically favors the rich over the poor, the donor class over the working class, the well-connected over the disconnected. This is deliberate, and we need to call it for what it is – corruption, plain and simple. #EndCorruptionNow
Today, I’m introducing the most ambitious anti-corruption legislation proposed in Congress since Watergate. This is an aggressive set of reforms that would fundamentally change the way Washington does business. #EndCorruptionNow
