Heard during my online #2021townhalls  last week from Oregonians statewide about the urgent need for actions on COVID just like these to save lives and get back to normal. @PresElectBiden  is already fulfilling his promises to keep families healthy

Today’s unanimous FERC decision on Jordan Cove is a win for protecting the South Coast because it reinforces Oregon’s environmental laws and reflects local community input for strict adherence to the Clean Water Act:

Today our country starts a new chapter to build back better, for everyone. The road ahead won’t be easy, but democracy is worth the effort. Let’s get to work.

My good friend @Enes_Kanter and I caught up recently about our fight for human rights in Turkey. All of us i #RipCity  know Enes is a hard-working player. And everybody should know Enes is just as hard-working when it comes to human rights in his homeland.

The contrast between Wednesday, Jan. 6 and Wednesday, Jan. 20 couldn’t be clearer. This “tale of two Wednesdays” moved in two weeks from domestic terrorism incited by Donald Trump to working together as voiced at yesterday’s unifying inauguration by @PresElectBiden 

Met today with members of the @OregonGuard  deployed to DC after the violent assault on our nation’s Capitol. Eternally grateful for all the brave servicemembers who kept us safe overseeing the peaceful transition of power this week.

Chair @JanetYellen ’s nomination to be Treasury Secretary just passed the @SenateFinance Committee by unanimous vote. Her nomination should be brought to the Senate floor for a final vote today so she can get our economy back on track for working families as soon as possible.

$2000 checks are a good place to start but they aren't enough. Jobless Americans need their supercharged unemployment benefits extended for the duration of this crisis so their wages are replaced and they can pay rent and buy groceries.


Retweet if you care about @realDonaldTrump 's tax returns

I can’t believe I have to keep saying this but Donald Trump has been president for four years and if he actually wanted to lower your drug prices he would have done it already.

I just voted no on the partisan #COVID19  bill. Here's why: while nurses are being forced to make their own masks and gowns, McConnell and Trump are busy creating a taxpayer-funded slush fund for their buddies. I will stay here as long it takes to get this done the right way.

Your daily reminder that Senate Republicans haven’t lifted a finger for three months to help families buy food during a pandemic but are preparing to confirm a Supreme Court nominee in less than two weeks.

If you woke up today angry, confused or frustrated about the direction our country is heading, I have one word for you: vote.

NEW: I've been investigating Trump's interference in the investigation into Turkish-owned Halkbank, and my suspicions were just confirmed. Attorney General Barr — at Trump’s request — was trying to orchestrate a sweetheart deal to please President Erdogan.

CHIP expired 111 days ago – you didn’t seem to mind until these kids became a useful political hostage.

Comey should be immediately called to testify in an open hearing about the status of Russia/Trump investigation at the time he was fired.
