Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) refused to answer a question about whether Democrats are just as guilty as Republicans when it comes to the influence of money in politics during an interview on the Deconstructed Podcast on Friday.

Host Mehdi Hassan asked Warren if she would agree that the Democratic Party is just as guilty if not more guilty than Republican Party when it comes to being influenced by the money they have received from big corporations.

Hassan pointed to Sen. Robert Menendez’s (D-NJ) corruption trial and questionable donations that the Clintons had taken over the years as examples.

“Oh, come on. This is not about comparisons,” Warren said.

“But it is because you have to win over all these people to get them on board your bill. And I’m saying it’s not like your party’s going to be behind you,” Hassan said.

“But here’s what I think. It’s if people are behind us, that’s how we make change. This place is corrupt,” Warren said.
