I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who served on the @January6thCmte . It was tough and painstaking work. It was service to we the people! They acted as investigators, and they were in pursuit of the truth at every step of the way.

My heart goes out to Senator@JohnFetterman and his family. Millions of people suffer from depression. It takes courage and strength to seek treatment, especially if you are in a public position. May he be met with compassion ❤️
On this day in 1968, before many of you might even have been born, my uncle, Robert F. Kennedy was gunned down while running for president. Gunned down on his victory night. He left a devastated pregnant wife and ten children and a shattered extended family.
@GregAbbott_TX , @tedcruz , @JohnCornyn . Every one of you must answer for this. Do something right now, tonight, or get out.
