During an @IndianCommittee  roundtable, Old Harbor Native Corporation CEO Carl Marrs and I discussed the importance of fostering economic development for Native Alaskan communities.

Just finished a tour of the @USCG  cutter Healy that finished a transit through the Northwest Passage. It was great to hear from @AdmiralMichel  & the ship’s captain on the capabilities of the ship - 1 of only 2 icebreakers in the US - & the progress of the polar security cutters.

Ralph leaves behind a true legacy of leadership. He was the CEO of Bristol Bay Native Association, active in the @NativeFed  , previously serving as Co-chair & board member and also lived in Utqiagvik for two decades, working for the North Slope Borough & the @ASRC_AK  .

#TBT to meeting with Eben Hopson of Utqiagvik at #ArcticCircle2021  in Iceland. Through his work as the North Slope liaison of the Ukpeaġvik Iñupiat Corporation Science, his passion and desire to work to ensure his Arctic community has a viable & vibrant future is evident.

I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my friend and Alaska Native leader, Ralph Andersen. Ralph was a kind and thoughtful man with a great sense of humor and a warm smile to share. His wisdom and historical knowledge was always appreciated when discussing hard issues.

My statement regarding the upcoming meeting of Congress to formally count the votes of the Electoral College and certify the 2020 presidential election:

(1/5) I worked for a fair, honest, and transparent process, modeled after the Clinton trial, to provide ample time for both sides to present their cases, ask thoughtful questions, and determine whether we need more.

Today I voted to confirm that it is within the U.S. Senate’s authority under the U.S. Constitution to hold the impeachment trial of former President Donald J Trump. Read my full statement here:

My full statement after voting to convict President Donald J. Trump on charges of incitement of insurrection over the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol can be found here:

(5/5) I will not stand for nor support that effort. We have already degraded our institution for partisan political benefit, and I will not enable those who wish to pull down another. We are sadly at a low point of division in this country.

(2/5) The House chose to send articles of impeachment that are rushed and flawed. I carefully considered the need for additional witnesses and documents, to cure the shortcomings of its process, but ultimately decided that I will vote against considering motions to subpoena.

Continuing our tradition of having a bipartisan, women Senators’ dinner. Thanks to the Vice President for hosting tonight.

(3/5) Given the partisan nature of this impeachment from the very beginning and throughout, I have come to the conclusion that there will be no fair trial in the Senate. I don’t believe the continuation of this process will change anything.

In a Senate ENR hearing I highlighted the value of resource based jobs. I also emphasized that the recent EOs from the Biden admin regarding oil & gas on federal lands have caused extreme anxiety for Alaskans who fear for their jobs & the state’s ability to generate revenue.
