There is just no equivalence between the personal preferences of a couple Ukrainians and Russia's coordinated attack on our democracy in 2016. These attempts to rewrite history only perpetuate Putin’s ongoing disinformation campaign against the United States.

So much to be thankful for today. From my family to yours, happy Thanksgiving!

This #MilitaryFamilyMonth , what I want is for Congress to pass my military housing reform legislation as part of the annual defense bill. The Pentagon and private companies cannot stand by as mold and other housing problems continue to harm military families across the country.

For the record, the President’s Chief of Staff and his attorney in an ongoing criminal investigation into the President’s campaign have no business showing up to a classified intelligence briefing.

I can’t believe I have to say this, but election security really should not be a partisan issue.

One year after our nation’s intelligence agencies unanimously concluded that Russia attacked our democracy, House Republicans are going after the FBI and Department of Justice instead.

I would have liked to meet with Judge Kavanaugh personally before deciding how I'd vote. Even attempted to set up a meeting with him, though unfortunately the White House never responded. So I’m just going to say it. I’ll be voting no on Judge Kavanaugh. Here’s why:
