It’s no coincidence that the tax scam helps real estate moguls like Trump. In fact, it gives real estate developers special favors worth $66.7B—while homeowners pay the price. That’s absurd. We should be easing the burden on the middle class, not making it harder to own a home.

Dear : if you are determined to proceed with the Putin meeting, at least demand that the Russians indicted today be extradited to the U.S. to stand trial for interfering with our elections. Don't be a Putin patsy. Stand up for America and our democracy!

With four months until the midterms, that has to change. We must pass the bipartisan DETER Act to send a powerful message to any foreign actor seeking to disrupt our elections: if you attack American candidates, campaigns, or voting infrastructure, you will face consequences.

Russian attacks on our democracy are not an abstract idea—they are a threat to Maryland and our entire country.

While there is no evidence that this has impacted Maryland elections to date, this news is deeply disturbing, and underscores the need for urgent action to prevent election interference—which Trump continues to ignore.

New from the : I just found out that the software vendor who maintains portions of the Maryland State Board of Elections voter registration platform was acquired in 2015 by a venture capitalist owned by a Russian oligarch.

The indictment of 12 Russians from GRU for interfering in our elections underscores the urgency of passing the bipartisan DETER Act that and I have introduced. Ensures very harsh, automatic penalties for future interference. Trump needs to embrace the bill—not Putin.

Trump’s willingness to put our national security at risk in order to protect jobs in China must be stopped. I am working with and to make sure our amendment to hold ZTE accountable—which already passed the Senate—moves forward. We will not be deterred.

With Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court, health care protections will again be on the chopping block—and if you’re a mom with cancer or a kid with diabetes, your coverage is at risk. You spoke out and helped us stop the GOP's last effort to repeal the ACA. We need you again now.

It's wrong for to pocket a $3.4B windfall from the tax bill and then lay off hundreds of workers in Maryland and across the country while moving jobs overseas. I told their CEO that they should halt these layoffs and instead bring jobs back to the United States.

In light of Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, reflection upon past and future cases has become even more important. I’ll be talking with about the Janus vs. AFSME case, and what happens when unions are under attack. Tune in live:

The image I saw of children huddled on the floor—separated by chain-link fences in what locals refer to as "the dog kennel" will haunt me forever. These kids have suffered enough. It’s unacceptable for the Trump Administration to miss the court deadline to reunite these families.

The rescue of the 12 Thai boys and their soccer coach is a wonderful ending to a story that highlights the true strength of the human spirit. The entire community banded together to accomplish what seemed impossible—and now the Wild Boars can finally head home.

Thanks for speaking out! Marylanders deserve a Supreme Court justice who will stand up for a woman’s right to choose and look out for every American, not do the bidding of the far-right groups who picked Kavanaugh. Tell your friends to ask their Republican senators to vote NO.

Americans deserve a Supreme Court justice who will stand up for liberty and justice for all—not someone picked from a list compiled by right-wing organizations to do their bidding. Kavanaugh does not meet that basic standard of fairness and impartiality, and I cannot support him.

I gave this speech back in April about Andrew Wheeler when I voted against his nomination to be Deputy Administrator of the EPA, and the sentiment is still the same. He represents a continuation of the Trump Administration's assault on the environment.

It's no secret that the Trump Administration puts corporate special interests before the public health, but still stunning to see the lengths they will go to block access to basic health information. Let others know how low they will go.
