The integrity of Guatemala’s Constitutional Court, the ultimate protector of the country’s democracy, is under attack. Guatemala’s President and Attorney General have a duty to defend it. My full statement:

Here's what I have to say to those who CLAIM they care about protecting the right to vote but REFUSE to provide funding to states unprepared for voting by mail amid this pandemic.

As positive COVID-19 cases explode, the American death toll climbs to 130K, & nearly 50 MILLION Americans file for unemployment, our fed. govt. can't just sit idly by as this pandemic consumes our nation. My statement here calling for Congress to act NOW:

USCIS sent furlough notices to 1,111 dedicated employees in #VT , and thousands more elsewhere. That’s 1,111 more reasons for the Senate GOP to stop blocking a further #COVID  emergency #Appropriations  bill. I’ll continue to press for action NOW.

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

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.

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 

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.

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.

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.
