Two mass shootings in 24 hours, in Milwaukee and Buffalo — the latter killing ten people. I’m heartbroken. And I’m angry. Angry that the GOP continues to block even the most basic gun safety measures. We can stop this. We can save lives. Republicans just refuse to. Cowards.

I don’t care how the draft leaked. That’s a sideshow. What I care about is that a small number of conservative justices, who lied about their plans to the Senate, intend to deprive millions of women of reproductive care. Codifying Roe isn't enough. We must expand the court.

With @SpeakerPelosi , I met with @ZelenskyyUa  and those on the frontlines of the war in Ukraine. We had one purpose: to reinforce our commitment to our allies. When we return, Congress must take up @POTUS 's request for humanitarian and military aid. There's no time to waste.

There's much to learn about unidentified aerial phenomena. But one thing is sure – the American people deserve full transparency. Next week, @HouseIntel  will give the public a chance to hear from experts on one of the greatest mysteries of our time.

Since the weekend, oil prices have fallen by about 10 percent. Yet gas prices just hit a new high. This is exploitation by oil and gas companies – plain and simple. It needs to end. And Big Oil needs to be held accountable.

Deeply saddened to learn Shireen Abu Akleh - a Palestinian-American reporter - was killed. I'm praying for her family, her colleague, Ali Al-Samudi, and all members of the press who risk their lives doing their jobs. A thorough investigation is needed to ensure accountability.

It’s really simple: The Capitol was attacked. And Republican members have information relevant to our investigation. We requested their cooperation. They refused. Leaving us no choice but to subpoena them. If their oath of office means anything, they have a duty to comply.


Donald Trump again shows that no child is too young or vulnerable, no step is too low, and why he is the worst President in modern history.

Trump just tweeted: “I stand stronger than anyone in protecting your Healthcare with Pre- Existing Conditions.” How absurd. His Administration is in court—right now—trying to repeal the entire ACA, including protections for pre-existing conditions. No one is fooled.

The transcript of the call reads like a classic mob shakedown: – We do a lot for Ukraine – There’s not much reciprocity – I have a favor to ask – Investigate my opponent – My people will be in touch Nice country you got there. It would be a shame if something happened to her.

Listen, I’m all for space exploration and it must have been an amazing view. But maybe – and I’m just spitballing here – if Amazon and other companies paid their fair share in taxes, we could lift all kids — if not into space — at least out of poverty. Sincerely, Earthlings

I’ve been on the Intelligence Committee for over 10 years. On terrorism and other threats, I’ve received more briefings from FBI, CIA, and DHS than I could count. How many times have any of them said we need a wall across the southern border? Zero.
