Top Democrat senator attacks Obama Pacific trade pact

US Senator Elizabeth Warren speaks during Day 1 of the Democratic National ConventionElizabeth Warren, a Democratic senator and standard-bearer on the US left, opened a new broadside on Wednesday against the White House’s signature Pacific trade pact, calling it a dangerous corporate power grab. Warren’s salvo came as President Barrack Obama trumpeted the 12-member Trans-Pacific Partnership during a trip to Asia, where he has reiterated plans to push US lawmakers to ratify the agreement in the dying days of his administration. The prospects for a US ratification before January, which could leave Obama a parting legacy by establishing the world’s largest free-trade region, appeared to grow dimmer on Wednesday as Warren unveiled a letter to US lawmakers from 220 economists and law professors calling on Congress to reject it.
