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.

(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.
