Investigating January 6 is a sober endeavor. One demanding good faith participation from both parties. Time after time, McCarthy has shown he is not up to that task. But we cannot allow him to derail our important work or appoint others who will. We will uncover the truth.

Speaking truth to power takes courage. Especially when it subjects you to vile, racist hate. Officer Dunn is a patriot who risked his life to protect the Capitol and our democracy, and continues to fight for the truth. That’s far more than anyone can say about @TuckerCarlson .

The Republican Party is a shell of its former self. What we see today is a cult of personality beholden to the whims of a disgraced, former president. Republicans of good conscience — both in power and out — must take their party back. America needs two functional parties.

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

As we withdraw from Afghanistan, we must do right by our Afghan partners who served alongside us. Today, we took action, led by @RepJasonCrow , to expand the visa program and ensure our Afghan partners can be evacuated to safety. Their lives depend on us keeping our promises.

There’s still more to learn about what happened on January 6.

Donald Trump must be convicted and removed from office. Because he will always choose his own personal interest over our national interest. Because in America, right matters. Truth matters. If not, no Constitution can protect us. If not, we are lost.

After listening to the President’s lawyers opening arguments, I have three observations: They don’t contest the facts of Trump’s scheme. They’re trying to deflect, distract from, and distort the truth. And they are continuing to cover it up by blocking documents and witnesses.

Flynn pled guilty to lying to the FBI about his illicit Russian contacts. His lies do not now become truths. This dismissal does not exonerate him. But it does incriminate Bill Barr. In the worst politicization of the Justice Department in its history.

Trump’s personal lawyer: Guilty. Trump’s campaign manager: Guilty. Trump’s deputy campaign manager: Guilty. Trump’s National Security Advisor: Guilty. Trump’s political advisor: Guilty. And now, Trump’s chief strategist: Indicted. A pattern of lies, graft and corruption.

This week, Republicans objected to giving workers $1,200 checks to pay rent and feed their families. Why?  “The deficit.” They didn’t care about the deficit when they passed $2 trillion in tax cuts for big corporations and millionaires. The biggest deficit is in their values.
