Yet again, Trump is using a global pandemic as cover for his anti-immigrant crusade. Don't be fooled. This isn’t about supporting schools. It’s about shutting America’s doors. We can't let int'l students become the latest victims of POTUS's cruelty.

SPC Guillen told her family her superior harassed her, but didn't report it. I've been fighting 10+ yrs to remove sexual assault cases from the chain of the command. If Vanessa had known she could report to an independent prosecutor, maybe she would have felt safe to come forward

When will we seriously scrutinize pork in the military? For 5 years I’ve been saying the LCS ships don’t float & were fraught w/problems but the Navy & Congress kept the fat rolling. Now Navy says it will decommission 4 of the 19 at nearly $400 million apiece down the ocean drain

So the stable genius didn’t just cheat on any test, he PAID someone to take the SAT to get into Wharton. U of Penn needs to investigate. If this is true, Trump’s diploma should be revoked!

#SCOTUS has condoned discrimination against women under the guise of religious freedom. To let employers or schools deny women contraception b/c of personal moral beliefs sets a dangerous precedent to deny other health care & strips women of control of their bodies & destinies.

I’m certain that Lt Col Vindman will go on to a brilliant career, it’s America that will suffer the loss of yet another dedicated servicemember who devoted his career to the defense of our country, democracy & the rule of law. Honesty & integrity has no value in this Admin.

After reading POTUS’ rants this morning is there any question that he is totally unhinged? Bring on the #25thAmendment . Our adversaries read these tweets and see opportunities galore.

It took 4 weeks for the U.S. to jump from 2M COVID-19 infections to 3M. Most experts say it’ll take less than a month to surpass 4M, yet @POTUS  bragged about 130K dead & said we could have “way over a million.” His prediction could still come true. #25thAmendmentBeforeWeAllDie 

SPC Guillen's death cannot be in vain. Last week, @SenGillibrand  & I demanded an IG investigation into her case-which my subcommittee will scrutinize. I will also offer a bill to attack the root of the problem DoD-wide. We will fight for Vanessa & for all our women in uniform!


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.

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’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.

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.

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.

How is it okay for @POTUS  to engage in name calling and tweeting fake images against the third highest ranking person in our government? I know, he does it to world leaders and 16-year-old Nobel winners. It is NOT okay and NOT normal. We have to demand he puts a stop to it!

Truly what kind of a country are we when a US Senator takes cheap shots at a Purple Heart recipient who has dedicated his life to protect us. Shame on you Sen. Blackburn. You’re better than that.
