Representing California's 28th Congressional District and Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee.
Over 500 legal scholars agree President Trump committed impeachable conduct: President Trump betrayed his oath of office by seeking foreign interference in our elections for his personal, political benefit at the expense of national security interests.
Trump is seeking to kick millions of families and children off food assistance. Meanwhile, he's preparing to send another $14 billion to big agribusinesses to offset the damage from his trade war. His values are clear: Welfare for corporations. Hunger for American families.
The White House said they wanted open hearings, not closed, and then they didn’t want those either. Then they said they wanted to participate in the proceedings, and now they say they don’t. All they really want is to hide the President’s serious misconduct. It’s not working.
I say this to the President, and his defenders in Congress: You may think it’s okay how Trump and his associates interacted with Russians during the campaign. I don’t. I think it’s immoral. I think it’s unethical. I think it’s unpatriotic. And yes, I think it’s corrupt.
The U.S. government is finally open again. RT if you think Congress should pass legislation to prevent future shutdowns.
We heard that Donald Trump only cares about the big stuff that helps him personally. The question now is — what do we care about? The Constitution? Our oath of office? Or merely our party. In the words of Elijah Cummings: We are better than that.
