Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) took to Twitter on Wednesday night to promise that she — and other Democrats — will fight back, hard, now that Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) has been confirmed as attorney general.

Shortly after Sessions was confirmed Wednesday night by the Senate, Warren vowed that “this is just the beginning” of opposition from Democrats.

She used extremely strong language to warn that if Sessions brings “his racism, sexism & bigotry” to the Justice Department, he will hear from “all of us.” The senator then tweeted that those senators who voted to put Sessions’s “radical hatred” at Justice would also hear from the opposition.

Warren, a possible 2020 presidential candidate, was presumably referring not only to lawmakers, but also to those who make up the activist base of the Democratic Party that is vigorously protesting President Trump and his policies around the country.

Warren’s national profile was abruptly elevated Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning when she was blocked by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) from speaking during the remainder of the Sessions debate because she allegedly had impugned Sessions’s character by trying to read a letter written by Coretta Scott King that was critical of Sessions.

Now, it’s Warren who is putting Republicans — and everyone else — on notice, tweeting Wednesday night:
