During @SecAFOfficial Barrett’s visit at @EielsonAFB_AK , , @SenDanSullivanSec . Barrett, & I spoke to various members of the 168thwing of the AK Air National Guard & @NORADCommandanker support personnel about serving in Alaska, & to thank them for their commitment to service.
Thank you to all the essential workers who continue to make a difference in their communities each day, and to the military service members for their service and supporting their fellow Americans during this difficult time.
Exposure to PFAS has been linked to a number of adverse side effects in humans. This informational session will help provide Alaskans w/ important info on their PFAS exposure levels & the steps being taken to document & understand PFAS exposure in the broader community
We were briefed on the F-35 operations & maintenance. I also checked in on the pilots & asked them how their families are settling in to their new community. As we care for our military and improve readiness, it’s imperative that we support the families who serve alongside them.
I continue to stress that there is no good reason for a shutdown. The reality is thousands of federal employees & contractors have no paycheck in sight, small businesses that rely on them are suffering & there’s no reason they should be held hostage to a political dispute.
Stop it! The Presidential platform should be used for more than bringing people down.
(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.
(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.
