Sent a letter w/ @SenFeinstein , @SenAlexPadilla  & fellow Bay Area Reps urging the Biden Admin to scrap the Trump EPA's disastrous effort to gut fed enviro protections for Redwood City Salt Ponds, a crucial natural space that must be protected under the Clean Water Act!

It is stunning to listen to the confirmation hearing of Merrick Garland for AG. Republicans asking if he will keep politics out of his decision making. How does that square with their silence on AG Barr’s political antics?

Sent a letter with 114 Members to @SecCardona  imploring him to reverse former Sec DeVos' disastrous Title IX rule so that we may return a sense of justice, dignity, safety & healing to sexual violence survivors. The days of "boys will be boys" excuses for predators must end.

A vote for the #ERANow  is a vote for equality, dignity, respect, and recognition. After a year that has devastated women & girls, it's past time that we enshrine women's equality & protections against sex discrimination in the U.S. Constitution. Let's get this done!

5 years ago I introduced a bill to address the malicious sharing of private, sexually explicit images, which can destroy a person's life with 1 click. Today, I'm proud to announce that bill, the bipartisan SHIELD Act, co-lead by @RepJohnKatko , passed as part of #VAWA21 !

SPEAK OUT! Violence against our Asian brothers and sisters must cease.

#EqualPayDay marks the extra 3 months women must work to earn what men made last yr. This is not about "choices." It's about discrimination & weak laws. When there's no paid leave, affordable childcare, or pregnancy accommodations, you're not making a choice, you're being pushed.

We should listen to our neighbors to the north.

It’s not too late to hold Attorney General Barr in contempt of Congress. His reckless and unethical behavior as AG should not go unaddressed.

Proud to reintro the bipartisan #IamVanessaGuillen  Act w/ @maziehirono  & 173 House cosponsors. Thx to @NancyPelosi ⁩ & HASC Chair ⁦⁩ @RepAdamSmithfor  your support. We must take sexual violence cases out of the chain of command to deliver justice to survivors!

Visited the grave of my friend’s father and witnessed a remarkable ceremony. The letters on the white crosses almost disappear in the brightness of the stone, so a soldier fills the indentations with sand from Omaha Beach to bring the name forward. It sent shivers down my spine.

New procedures in the House require us to go through a magnetometer before entering the floor. All because a new Republican member wants to carry heat onto the floor. Well, no surprise—5 Republican law and order members set off the magnetometer and then refused  to be wanded.

Devin Nunes calling the Intelligence Committee’s fact-finding mission a cult is dispicable. I know about cults. Cults are led by maniacal narcissists who expect complete adoration and relinquishment of independent thought. I suggest Mr. Nunes look elsewhere.

“Send her back. Lock her up. Nasty woman. Horse face. That dog. Face of a pig. Not my type. Fat. Disgusting. Low IQ. Slob. Pocahontas. Blood coming out of her wherever. Look at that face. Grab them by the pussy.” But nobody has more respect for women? #IStandWithIlhanOmar 

The 1st sounds we heard before we could see the children held at Ursula were haunting cries of babies & toddlers. I spoke to a dad of a sick 6-month-old girl. She was flushed, listless, her little fists clung tightly to his shirt. Flu, meningitis, typhus, lice & more. #Border

I just checked in with US Capitol Police & asked has anyone refused to be wanded and they said “plenty.” What’s it going to take for Members of Congress to follow the rules?!

America-we are in deep trouble. When the US Archivist is willing to tamper with documents to avoid the ire of President Trump, we have crossed a red line in protecting the Constitution. What happens to the First Amendment if @POTUS  doesn’t like what you are saying?

Sekulow just told bald-faced lies to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Republicans WERE allowed in the SCIF. I was there. Many Rs CHOSE not to show up.

I’m hard pressed not to think that this is political. Blue states like California got a pathetic number of loans issued. Nebraska got nearly 75% of loans requested. I smell a rat with orange hair.

We are the richest country in the world. We know now that the Coronavirus has been in Washington state for 6 weeks. Where are the test kits?! As of Thursday, South Korea had tested 66,652, the US had tested only 445. The hoax, as @POTUS  calls it, is a hoax on the American people.
