Our work here is by no means done. And as long as outstanding hospitals such as this one continue working, Congress must too. To do anything less is simply not an option. That is why the Senate must act on the Heroes Act—providing an additional $100B in hospital funding.

TODAY at 4:30PM, I’m hosting a tele-town hall to answer CT constituents’ questions on #COVID19  & other important topics. Looking forward to hearing from you & providing an update on Congress’ work. Tune in:

Too many red flags to ignore: The IG should investigate any potential favoritism or conflicts of interest. Congress must also pass the CORE Act—protecting IG independence & strengthening oversight.

@ACLU ’s latest complaint once again highlights CBP’s perpetual tactics of abuse. Customs & Border Protection’s culture of cruelty must end.

Heroes work at @SaintMarysCT . They comfort patients & their families here, they treat the sick here, & they save lives here. We are forever indebted to the work of every single person in this building each day to change & save lives. Thank you all.

Unsurprising, but still shocking. Trump grotesquely mocks the rule of law, favoring friends who lie for him with (literally) a get out of jail free card.

Transit workers are showing up day in & day out during this pandemic to ensure people can get where they need to go, from essential jobs to doctors appointments. I’ll keep fighting for funding to provide much needed PPE & heroes pay.

We’re actually a Tale of Two Countries on coronavirus. Conquering this insidious, raging pandemic is impossible without a nation united by following sensible rules. Trump persists in dividing us, enabling foolhardy, feckless defiance of science.

Beyond time. Racism & bigotry have no place in professional sports. Thank you to the activists whose tireless work forced this change & will continue to help eradicate the disrespect & hate engrained in our culture.

This morning’s classified coronavirus briefing should have been made fully open to the American people—they would be as appalled & astonished as I am by the inadequacy of preparedness & prevention.

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

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.

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.

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.
