Final thought tonight: every single Republican senator voted to block every single amendment for relevant evidence and firsthand witnesses. Let that sink in. The American people deserve better than this. We need a fair trial. Not a cover-up.

Heading into day 2 of Trump’s impeachment trial, here’s a quick update.

It's simple: -Zelensky told Trump he needed military aid -Then Trump said, “I would like you to do us a favor, though.” -That same day, Michael Duffey sent an email directing military aid to be withheld Now the White House is withholding Duffey's emails. This is a cover-up.

On break right now and let me just say this: I fully support Senator Schumer’s amendment to ensure we see all relevant documents withheld by the White House. Documents don’t lie. If Republicans block this, then it’s not a fair trial. Period.

During Watergate, it was witness testimony that revealed the existence of Oval Office tapes that exposed Nixon’s criminal activity. Now, Trump and his allies are outright blocking witnesses from testifying, which raises the question: what do they have to hide?

This month marks 10 years since the Supreme Court wrongfully decided Citizens United, allowing corporate money to flood our politics & damage our democracy. It has to stop. That’s why we introduced a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United & limit money in politics.

We need hand-marked paper ballots in all federal elections—now. The 2020 election is right around the corner and this cannot wait any longer.

The Senate should not advance any judicial nominees while the person who nominates them is on trial. Period.

This isn’t just an impeachment trial—the very integrity of the United States Senate is on trial.
