I’m heartbroken for the Chesapeake community. Not even a week after the last shooting, more innocent people killed in another tragically preventable crisis. We don’t have to live like this — don’t ever let Republicans in Congress convince you otherwise.

Glad @POTUS  is embracing a tax on Big Oil's exorbitant profits. I've introduced the bill to make that happen - and to immediately lower prices at the gas pump. Working families need relief far more than Big Oil's shareholders need payouts. Congress should take this up ASAP.

On Veterans Day, we honor the brave men and women who answer the call to serve. They represent the best of what America has to offer. We owe them the greatest debt of gratitude. Thank you for your service - and a special thank you to my favorite veteran, my father Ed, now 94.

Students shouldn’t have to worry if their school is next after a shooting. Parents shouldn’t have to text their kids to see if they’re alive. We don’t have to live this way. Congress can act. And if Republican politicians showed even an ounce of courage, they would.

Trump abused his power to carry out political vendettas - like using DOJ to go after his enemies. Now his former Chief of Staff confirmed another abuse: Ordering the IRS to audit those "writing bad things" about him. Not just dangerous. Or wrong. Also potentially criminal.

After her beautiful speech, I told Nancy Pelosi that she reminded me of boxing legend Muhammad Ali because she is the greatest that ever was. She's also a dear friend and mentor. Her constituents and our state are blessed to be represented by such a remarkable leader.

Sickened and horrified by the shooting at Club Q in Colorado Springs. The LGBTQ+ community is once again the target of the most terrible violence. And devastating attacks like these will only become more common if we don’t fight back. It must stop.

My brother and I are spending today with our dad, Ed, almost 95. He’s on the mend after a few weeks in the hospital — nothing like turkey sandwiches and matzo ball soup to aid in his recovery! We’re so thankful for our time together. Hope you’re enjoying your day.

History will not be kind to Donald Trump. Because truth matters. Right matters. And decency matters. It may be midnight in Washington, but the sun will rise again. I put my faith in the optimism of our Founders. You should too.

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.

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.

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.
