Using the hashtag #EndCorruptionNow, senator attempts herculean task of putting president's cronies and supporters in context of broad and troubling framework

President Donald Trump, says Senator Elizabeth Warren, is "running the most corrupt administration of our lifetimes."

Ahead of introducing new legislation on Tuesday morning she says is designed to address the sinister problem eating away at the nation's democratic promise, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has spent the last day documenting the various members of President Donald Trump's cabinet, as well as the powerful forces embraced by the president and his cronies, in order to detail why she views it as "the most corrupt administration of our lifetimes."
