Here's Where 2020 Presidential Candidate Elizabeth Warren Stands on Cannabis

"How did we get here?" she asked rhetorically. No, she names and shames her villains, from big banks who push for their own deregulation, to self-interested and moneyed politicians who cut their own taxes at the expense of the rest of us, to hate-mongers on Fox News and in the White House who peddle racism and misogyny to stir up an angry, bigoted Republican base.

The Boston Globe reports that Warren announced she is "exploring" a run for the presidency in 2020.

Warren would also be up against many more possible candidates, such as Sens.

Exploratory money can be raised without requiring full disclosure of donors, as is required for a declared candidate.

She's running, and she's started with a strong opening shot. And even some Democrats accused Warren of misunderstanding the complexity of race and identity. Warren framed the trajectory of her career as being focused on answering "why America's promise works for some families but others who work just as hard slip through the cracks into disaster". And what I've found is terrifying: these aren't cracks families are falling into, they're traps.

Mueller's office denies Federal Bureau of Investigation tricked Flynn
Flynn wrote a foreword to Scopelliti's self-published book, "America First: The MAGA Manifesto", earlier this year. The agents also, according to Flynn's lawyers , did not advise Flynn that lying to the FBI is a federal offense.

"If we organize together, if we fight together, if we persist together, we can win", Warren ends the video, making a subtle reference to a moment on the Senate floor in 2017 that went viral. "We can and we will". Warren said she was forming an exploratory committee, which will allow her to raise money for a campaign and hire people for staff positions. "She has the know how to actualize the policies that will be debated during the Democratic primary", said Barney Frank, the former MA congressman who co-wrote the 2010 financial regulatory law. She easily won reelection in November.

The stealth 2020 Democratic presidential primary has been underway for months, but things finally kicked into high gear Monday when Sen.

A recent poll of likely caucusgoers in Iowa had her in fourth place at 8 percent, trailing Biden, Sanders and Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Tex.).

The exploratory committee will allow Warren, a liberal from the northeast state of MA, to begin fundraising for an eventual candidacy.

"Corruption is poisoning our democracy", Warren says in the video as images of Republican leaders flash across the screen.

In plea deal, Russian woman admits to being a secret agent
Butina also faces the possibility she will be deported after she serves any prison sentence the judge choses to impose. The court has not yet set a sentencing date, but set a status hearing for February 12, the Washington Post reported.

She has also taught law at a handful of universities across the country.

Speculation that Warren might run for president began nearly as soon as she won her Senateseat in 2012. But in MA, when matched up against her opponents in a potential Democratic primary, she's actually polling third or fourth, behind Biden and Sanders, which suggests something quite wrong, right?

If competently run, the Warren exploratory committee can fairly quickly answer some of those questions.

Warren burst onto the national scene a decade ago during the financial crisis with calls for greater consumer protections, and quickly became one of the party's more prominent liberals. She may face several African American opponents in a party where black voters have been decisive in picking the presidential nominee in the last two open contests - Hillary Clinton on 2016, and Barack Obama in 2008.
