It doesn’t matter what we call it – what the House Judiciary Committee is doing will reveal @realDonaldTrump ’s corruption, obstruction of justice, and abuse of power. The American people need to know what’s happening in this administration. It’s about time.

Last month, I joined @PPVNH  to hear first-person stories of care received at Planned Parenthood. Without Title X, patients like those I met will have to delay or even go without the health care they need. Congress has the power to stop this and #ProtectX . #IStandWithPP 

Brett Kavanaugh should never have been confirmed to the Supreme Court. It was plain to me and many others at the time that the FBI ‘investigation’ into the serious, corroborated allegations of sexual assault by Justice Kavanaugh was a sham.

New reporting from @nytimes  further proves it. In normal times, I would call on the Department of Justice’s Inspector General to fully investigate the FBI’s failures in this matter. But these are not normal times.

Like so many of @realDonaldTrump 's attacks on immigrant families, the cruelty and fear are the point. Today I'm introducing the Protect American Values Act to say #NoToPublicCharge . We must #ProtectFamilies  and support the diversity that helps our country thrive.

Young people in Hawaii and across the country are stepping up to fill in the leadership vacuum created by this administration on climate action. Thank you to @GretaThunberg  and youth climate activists around the world for being the spark plug in demanding #ClimateActionNow .

Trip to Mar-a-Lago for 1 president = $3.4 million = Toothbrush, Toothpaste, and Soap for 2.7 million kids. With @realDonaldTrump , the cruelty is the point.

I have cancelled my meeting with Judge Kavanaugh. , who is an unindicted co-conspirator in a criminal matter, does not deserve the courtesy of a meeting with his nominee—purposely selected to protect, as we say in Hawaii, his own okole.

AG Barr is no different than the other people who have sacrificed their once-decent reputation for . AG Barr has chosen to be the President’s lawyer and side with him over the interests of the American people. America deserves better than AG Barr. He must resign.

Robert Mueller has been unanimously confirmed by the Senate 4 times for 3 DOJ positions. He doesn’t require Senate confirmation now, but ’s ignorant comments make passing bipartisan legislation to protect the Special Counsel’s investigation even more important.

Here's the thing-- Mitch McConnell is gaslighting us. Republicans rammed through a bill to give huge tax breaks to corporations and the mega-rich, and now they're using its consequences as an excuse to propose cuts to Medicare and Medicaid. It's all part of the GOP fever dream.
