#Navalny himself is unjustly imprisoned in Russia for saying out loud the truth about corruption In Putin’s Russia.
Riding through the @CityofAnnapolis in style.
#PiDay celebrates the magic of numbers, challenges us to ponder infinity and marks #AlbertEinstein 's birthday - a scientific genius and outspoken voice against racism, nationalism, McCarthyism and Nazism: “In the last analysis, everyone is a human being."
Part of pi’s wonder is that it appears in every circle and stays consistent. Unfortunately, not all numbers and equations can say the same. On average, women are STILL making 77 cents to every dollar earned by men. #piDay2023
Passing the #PaycheckFairnessAct would help close this stubborn gap by allowing women to hold their employers accountable. #EqualPayDay
For the first time in over 20 years, the town of Indian Head in Charles County will have a grocery store that offers fresh foods and vegetables, going from a food desert to an oasis.
The Iranian People exemplify bravery as they protest the Government of Iran, which unsurprisingly ranks as one of the worst human rights violators in the world. A 15-minute defense for an illegitimate death-sentence is outlandish and cruel.
Today I'm releasing a #RussiaReport documenting Vladimir Putin's 20-year attack on democratic institutions in his own country and Europe. To protect against what the Kremlin did to the U.S. in 2016, we need to first understand Putin's pattern.
Unfortunately, the one person in the U.S. government stopping a truly comprehensive U.S. government response is @POTUS . Never before in our history has so clear a threat to U.S. national security been so clearly ignored by the sitting president. #RussiaReport
Today, SFRC approved S.3199, a much needed bill on #Ethiopia . This bill is the first step in holding all parties responsible for the conflict in Ethiopia accountable for the gross human rights violations they have committed & the catastrophic humanitarian crisis they’ve enabled.
In his first week, @POTUS has silenced @EPA and National Parks from talking about #ClimateFacts . Key word: FACTS. #DefendScience
The ongoing conflict in #Ethiopia is heartbreaking and increasingly troubling. I will continue to work in Congress to do everything to bring the parties to the civil conflict together in a genuine National Dialogue.
This is not an esoteric argument about rules. This is about a historically bipartisan, Constitutional requirement. #BlindTrust
The President of the United States must abide by the Constitution. It is not voluntary #emolumentsclause
President-Elect Trump promised not to cut #Medicare for our seniors, but Republicans' current plan does exactly that. #MakeAmericaSickAgain
I call on the government to release those detained since the imposition of the state of emergency, facilitate the delivery of humanitarian assistance & engage in a meaningful dialogue to bring an end to the conflict in #Tigray .
