I spoke this morning in the Judiciary Committee about the legacy of Elijah Cummings. His voice, his moral clarity, and his example will be dearly missed on Capitol Hill and by the entire nation.

VOTING NOW: The climate crisis is an urgent existential challenge, and today I’m voting to repeal Pres. Trump’s so-called Affordable Clean Energy rule, rolling back emissions standards for power plants and the climate solutions we need. #DirtyPowerScam

I KNOW I shouldn't have retweeted this. A moment of weakness...

Chairman Graham just broke FOUR committee rules in order to advance Pres. Trump’s bill to lock up immigrant children INDEFINITELY. Rules every Republican voted for 6 months ago. Rules I always respected as chairman. They might as well rip them up. So I did it for them.

I keep demanding Kavanaugh’s FULL record because it will reveal if he lied to me under oath in 2006—whether he is fit to serve on our highest court. We’ve seen just 6%; only 3% is public. The hiding of his record is a sham & a fraud against the American people. #WhatAreTheyHiding 

Let’s get one thing clear, the President is canceling, not delaying, hundreds of military construction projects. The American people cannot be asked to foot the bill a second time for projects that this administration has decided are less important than an ineffective wall.

Untruthful testimony, under oath and on the record.

Judge Kavanaugh’s stunning decision to pen an op-ed bluntly confirms he has neither the judgment nor the temperament to be on our highest court. He can’t erase blaming credible sexual assault allegations ‘on the Clintons,’ attacks on senators, and vows of revenge with an op-ed.

THREAD: Between 2001 and 2003, Republican Senate staffers hacked into and stole 4,670 files on controversial Bush judicial nominees from 6 Democrats, including me. This scandal amounted to a digital Watergate, not unlike Russia’s hacking of the DNC.

BREAKING: Kavanaugh testified he never received any docs that even “appeared to … have been drafted or prepared by Democratic staff.” Well, he got 8 pages of material taken VERBATIM from my files, obviously written by Dem staff, LABELED “not [for] distribution”.
