Hours after sending out a fundraising e-mail to supporters, Warren refused to comment on raising money off of her violation.
Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) dodged questions on fundraising off of her official reprimand on the Senate floor in an interview with CNN’s Manu Raju Wednesday, hours after sending out fundraising e-mails asking supporters to donate money to “Elizabeth for MA.”
As Raju asked her how much money she raised and whether fundraising was appropriate, Warren simply shook her head and said, “I have no idea.”
Warren then pivoted to talking about her opposition to Attorney General nominee Jeff Sessions.
Around 11:00 PM Tuesday night, Warren sent an e-mail to supporters, detailing Warren’s account of events that transpired on the Senate floor. Read the text of the e-mail here:
