Our nation should never repeat the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII. 78 years later, @realDonaldTrump  has ignored our history and is abusing his power to target people based on ethnicity. On this #DayOfRemembrance , we must stand together and fight for all people.

Since I called for AG Barr to resign in 2019, he's shown no sign of independence as he continues to act as the attorney for @realDonaldTrump , not the people. With this administration it seems the rule of law, our independent judiciary, and checks and balances are out the window.

Started the morning today with a cup of coffee at @MorningGlassC  to learn about their experience working with the Hawaii Small Business Development Center. It was great to hear from two women entrepreneurs about how they got their start in business.

@realDonaldTrump ’s reckless, impulsive actions are bringing us perilously close to war with Iran. It's time for Congress to reassert its Constitutional authority by demanding the President seek explicit authorization prior to any military action against Iran.

Decades after the Vietnam War ended, our veterans are still suffering from exposure to Agent Orange. @realDonaldTrump  claims he cares, but is delaying these critical benefits - it’s time to stop stonewalling.

Everyday asylum seekers are sent to tent courts where no judge is physically present and they may not even have an attorney. These “tent courts” aren’t allowing anyone a #FairDayInCourt , instead we’re sending asylum seekers back to danger. We must #RestoreAsylumNow .


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.

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.

$400 million in tax fraud is the equivalent of the average American not paying taxes for 38,000 years.

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.

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.
