It’s scary to think how close we came to losing it all, but I promise you, our democracy is worth saving. Tune in to the #LSSC  tonight as @StephenAtHome  & I discuss the impact of our #Jan6thHearings  now and for future generations.

What we’ve uncovered @January6thCmte  should concern every American. The truth is not political & the facts are damning. I’d urge my fellow Republicans still in denial to ask themselves how they’d react if a Democrat in the WH did this. It cannot go unchecked.

The US should never face shortages of critical items--from PPE & pharmaceuticals during a pandemic to baby formula in "normal" times. Congress can & should change our reactive strategy to a proactive one by sending a bipartisan supply chain bill to POTUS.

Today as we celebrate America’s independence, we remember those who fought to protect our freedoms and all who continue to defend our democracy. To strengthen our self-governance, we must accept truth & put the interests of our country—not any one political party—first. US 🎆

The pure evil on display in Highland Park has rocked our state, and the nation. As we grieve for the victims and those injured, we remain especially grateful to the LEOs who apprehended the shooter & to the first responders for swiftly reacting & saving countless lives.

Threats of violence over politics has increased heavily in the last few years. But the darkness has reached new lows. My new interns made this compilation of recent calls they’ve received while serving in my DC office. WARNING: this video contains foul & graphic language.

Shinzo Abe was a great friend to the U.S. and a leader who understood the need to strengthen relationships with our Allies in the face of global challenges. Sofia and I send our condolences to his wife Akie, their family, and the people of Japan.

What was Donald Trump doing while the Capitol was under siege? Take a look.

We the people must demand more of our politicians and ourselves. Oaths matter. Character matters. Truth matters. If we do not renew our faith and commitment to these principles, this great experiment of ours, our shining beacon on a hill, will not endure.

It’s with a heavy heart I am calling for the sake of our Democracy that the 25th Amendment be invoked. My statement:

The prosecution is compelling. Donald Trump incited and directed the insurrection. He knew what he was doing. I cannot imagine how any Senator could vote against removal.

Today, I was asked to serve on the bipartisan January 6th Select Committee and I humbly accepted. When duty calls, I will always answer.

I haven’t yet said this publically, but I want to now. On Wednesday I felt literally and real evil as the insurrection went down. It is not something that happens much, but I’ve never felt it stronger than that day. Mass deception.

Wow. We bombed our own base on purpose, because of the impulsive decision by @realDonaldTrump  didn’t leave time to evacuate the right way. Is this the America you grew up believing in?

We have to hold Members accountable who incite or glorify violence, who spread and perpetuate dangerous conspiracies. The failure to do so will take us one step closer to this fantasized violence becoming real. To be clear, I’ll be voting yes on the Gosar censure resolution.
