Elizabeth Warren leads the Democratic ‘ideas primary’

Elizabeth Warren has a plan for that. And that. And that as well. On Wednesday, the Massachusetts senator unveiled the 12th major policy proposal of her presidential run, a $100bn plan to combat the opioid crisis.

Warren’s reputation as the ideas generator has gained widespread attention. But she is not the only candidate for the Democratic nomination who has white papers to flaunt.

THE MUELLER REPORT: ‘MY PRESIDENCY IS OVER’, ‘I’M F…ED’ PRESIDENT TRUMP REACTING TO THE APPOINTMENT OF SPECIAL COUNSEL


President Donald Trump responded to news of special counsel Robert Mueller’s 2017 appointment by telling then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions that he was “fucked,” according to a redacted version of Mueller’s report released Thursday.


“Oh my God,” the president told Sessions, according to the report. “This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m fucked.”

Trump went on to lambaste his attorney general for allowing Mueller’s appointment to happen, telling Sessions that the attorney general’s job had been to protect him and that Sessions had “let [him] down.” The president, according to Mueller’s report, asked Sessions: “How could you let this happen, Jeff?”
