Twitter Web App : My colleagues & I took an oath to protect the Constitution.

Senators took an oath to protect the Constitution. They just took an oath of impartiality.

No one took an oath to protect President Trump.

I hope all Senators reflect on their oath & #DefendOurDemocracy

Twitter Web App : Since Impeachment passed the House:
➡️Bolton said he would testify.
➡️Russia caught hacking Burisma.
➡️Lev Parnas said the President & his administration knew.
➡️GAO concluded Trump broke the law withholding security assistance.

The Senate cannot turn a blind eye to the evidence…

Twitter Web App : This nonpartisan GAO report concluded President Trump broke the law.

The Senate must call witnesses and have a fair trial. We must #DefendOurDemocracy and hold this administration accountable.…

Twitter Web App : Trials. Have. Witnesses. And. Documents.

Cover-ups don’t.

In their own words.

Twitter Web App : The night before he was assassinated.
Assassinated. Many wish “Happy Birthday” to a man today that they would have hated then. The authentic, comprehensive King makes power uneasy & privilege unhinged. Never forget: He’s not here to hear “Happy Birthday” because he was murdered.

Twitter Web App : It was great to get to know Jax and his parents. Thank you for coming to Congress and educating me on the need for increased NIH funding for celiac disease. I look forward to joining you in this effort, because as Childrens Hospital says cures can’t wait!

iPhone : While the Trump Admin. may not prioritize affordable housing & #homelessness, Financial Svcs Cmte have made these issues a priority from day 1. Our 1st hearing in the 116th Congress was on homelessness and our first hearing this year focuses on affordable housing. |…

Twitter Web App : Right Now: Financial Svcs Cmte are hearing solutions to the homelessness crisis in this country. Every American must have access to affordable housing. Tune in to the hearing below -- it's important we discuss the need for low-income housing.…

Twitter Web App : In the Clinton impeachment process, 66 witnesses were allowed to testify including 3 in the Senate trial, and 90,000 pages of documents were turned over.

Trump was too afraid to let any of his top aides testify & covered up every single document. The Senate must #EndTheCoverUp…

Twitter Web App : A Senate trial should be like any other trial.

Senators should hear from witnesses. Senators should see the documents.

Only then can they make the best possible decision regarding the Presidents misconduct.

Once upon a time, Mitch McConnell felt the same.

Twitter Web App : Tonight, I voted to terminate the use of the US Military in hostilities against Iran without Congressional Authorization -- as our constitution mandates.

My statement on the War Powers Resolution⬇️

Twitter Web App : The Congress must not allow the President to irresponsibly put servicemembers, diplomats & others in danger. Today, the House will vote on a War Powers Resolution limiting President Trump’s military actions regarding Iran.

iPhone : In 2019, House Democrats passed 400 #ForThePeople bills to protect health care, lower the costs of prescription drugs, strengthen workers’ rights and so much more.

We took an oath to defend the Constitution. We made a promise to govern.

And that’s exactly what we did.…

Twitter Web App : One year ago, I cosponsored #HR8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act to say #EnoughIsEnough.

Its passage was the first Congressional action in a generation to help prevent gun violence.

It’s long past time for Leader McConnell to bring this bill up for a vote #ForThePeople.

iPhone : Moments this like this why we serve. An unjustly detained peace activist is free today — hugging his family and loved ones. Grateful to all who worked on his release and to have been able to advocate on his behalf.…
