200,000 lives lost. This is a tragedy unlike anything our nation has ever seen, and this extraordinary loss is on the Trump administration. The COVID-19 Pandemic is not over.

Your agency is rooted in your power to hold elected officials — even the ones you voted for — accountable. We need your generation to step up and out on this three act civics journey. This #NationalVoterRegistrationDay  , claim your power, and step up. (4/4)

If you agree #BreonnaTaylor  should be alive today, then by extension, you agree her killers should face justice.

Respectfully, Senator, you are not helpless. You have leverage. Your #SCOTUS  vote. Don’t want us to lose our democracy? Don’t give up your #SCOTUS  vote so easily. Speak the only language @realDonaldTrump  understands: strength. No peaceful translation pledge, no vote.

Imagine if @realDonaldTrump ’s Operation Warp Speed was to defeat the #CoronaVirus  rather than to ram through a #SCOTUS  justice who will defeat the Affordable Care Act. #ProtectOurCare 

He’s broke. And facing criminal charges. That’s why @realDonaldTrump  is sabotaging the mail, welcoming foreign interference, and inciting violence to win an election. This is going to be a rocky ride — but civic participation and unity are our antidotes.

I’m glad the House voted overwhelmingly (397-5) to pass my resolution committing to a peaceful transfer of power. We must say with one voice that the people’s will must stand.

At airport and see flight attendant thanking a restaurant worker “for being so kind to me over the years.” “I won’t see you again,” he asked. “They’re letting a lot of us go. I hope we get to come back.” Yesterday, @GOPLeader  stopped a @HouseDemocrats  airline employee relief bill

Just a reminder that wRONg Johnson spent a recent Fourth of July in Moscow and has — despite public intelligence warnings — laundered Russia’s disinformation through Congress. Want to beat #RussiaRon ? #Vote  Democracy will win.


I don’t say this lightly: when we escape this Trump hell, America needs a Presidential Crimes Commission. It should be made up of independent prosecutors who look at those who enabled a corrupt president. Example 1: Sabotaging the mail to win an election. #SaveThePostOffice 

Come hell or high water, Election Day is November 3. Pass it on.

I don’t know anyone in “Antifa.” But I’m against facism. And @realDonaldTrump  is a fascist.

I’m done listening to lectures about being un-American from the party whose Kentucky senator just blocked a bill to save 9/11 victims.

Let’s never forget that the most damning things we have learned about @realDonaldTrump ’s corruption have not come from his political enemies but from the people he has hired.

Scary. A constituent just confronted me and told me I support open borders. I told her that’s not true and I’ve never said that. She said “ said you do.” Guys, this is what we are up against. We aren’t battling ideology. We’re battling misinformation.

Imagine defending racist monuments with more vigor than defending your own wife.
