If these reports are true, they open a new chapter of intolerable corruption by President Trump. The DNI must give Congress the whistleblower’s complaint & all the relevant facts, including testimony from anyone in the administration with any knowledge of these incidents.

Glad to see Instagram & Facebook taking action to combat the modern-day snake oil salesmen who use glitzy celebrities & flashy social media campaigns to target teens with unhealthy—sometimes life-threatening—diet products.

Shocking new data reveals just how hooked kids are on nicotine & e-cigarettes. FDA must step up to the plate & do more to regulate these dangerous products—including banning flavors.

Delighted to host “Discover Connecticut,” a showcase of local CT businesses here in DC. These featured manufactures, restaurants, breweries, & tourist attractions boost CT’s economy, enrich our lives, & make me proud to call CT home. #DiscoverCT 

Using the Office of the Presidency to pressure a foreign leader to investigate a political opponent is an abject, unacceptable abuse of power & part of a pattern.

Inspiring to see young people in Hartford & around the country/world taking to the streets for the #ClimateStrike . These amazing young leaders are stepping up to call for change & #ClimateAction . I hope my colleagues are listening—I know I am.

Shocking & shameful—the number of veteran suicides continuing to rise shows the VA’s ongoing abject failure in outreach & health care. A 1st step toward VA accountability is a hearing.


I stand with millions of American consumers, innovators, and entrepreneurs against ’s plot to gut . RT if yo #NetNeutrality ’re ready to resist this appalling attack on our free and open internet.

Just got off the phone w/ HHS. I am furious&horrified after immigration conference call – virtually no separated children have been reunified; no system, no plan, no path to assure reunification; no answers to key questions. Strategy seems to be: blame everyone else.

I asked Judge Kavanaugh to recuse himself from any #SCOTUS  case involving the criminal or civil liability of President Trump. He refused.

This day is the saddest & angriest of my time in the Senate. The Republicans have succeeded in confirming a dangerous & deeply flawed nominee only by breaking all the rules & norms. The damage done today will be enduring—to the United States Supreme Court & to our country.

Mr. President: Your bullying hasn't worked before and it won't work now. No one is above the law.

There’s abundant evidence to convict Donald Trump of many of the crimes that Michael Cohen is now serving years in prison for committing.

Retweet if you agree should delay Thursday’s vote pend #NetNeutralityng  a full investigation of possible bot interference in the public comment process. The future of our internet is simply too important.
