When asked by another reporter if she agreed with Lewis’ statement on the legitimacy of Trump’s leadership, Warren responded, “What I agree with is that John Lewis is a man who has earned the right to have his view of Donald Trump’s presidency and legitimacy.” Pressed further, she added, “What I believe is that right now, the intelligence community has raised significant questions about Russian interference in our electoral process. And that these questions must be tracked down, and that we both must determine exactly what Russia did, and take appropriate steps.”
 
Unlike Lewis, however, Warren will not boycott Friday’s inauguration—which may be the very first time that Warren and Trump occupied the same space at the same time.
