I'll do it, but disclaimer: I'm not afraid to read queens to filth 💁💁 because reading is what? Fundamental! ( If you're interested, drop me a note.)

🙋🏻‍♀️Lawyer here. The President of the United States has a duty to not misstate federal law to the American public. You don’t need to have committed a crime—or even intended to do so—to obstruct a lawful investigation. The crime is in hiding the truth from law enforcement.

This is a dangerous decision that will harm our trans and gender non-conforming friends and neighbors. The Trump Administration should , not rip away protections from vulnerable members of our communities.

ICYMI: I have never met someone - Democrat, Republican, or Independent - who likes being cheated. So when some of my colleagues tried to propose an amendment that would gut the Act, a bill to protect our nation's top consumer watchdog, I stood up and spoke out.

I understand the rules and I'm going to follow them. I also get why rules have to be strict because they could be abused. But for outsiders like me, sometimes this place just doesn't make sense. Lots of rules, not a lot of justice. (8/8)

I'm not allowed to promote bone marrow drives. Meanwhile, it's fine for politicians to spend hours and hours a week soliciting corporate PAC money. And it's fine for a politician to leave office and become a lobbyist for the industry they once oversaw. (7/8)

I'm telling you this because I want the American people to know how backwards our Congressional rules can be. (6/8)

It violates House Ethics rules for House members to promote private events, even for non-profits, and even to save the lives of our constituents. So I won't be promoting this event using my official House accounts or resources (because I can't). (5/8)

I called the House Ethics Committee to see if my office would be able to promote the bone marrow drives being organized across the country for this purpose. Their answer: nope. (4/8)

Her community is organizing bone marrow registration drives to help find a match for her, and for other people of South Asian descent, who are under-represented in bone marrow registries. (3/8)

One of my constituents came to me recently - she has cancer, and needs a bone marrow donor - quick! (2/8)

I'm a new Member of Congress, and sometimes the rules of this place are truly confounding to me. I want to tell you a quick story. (1/8)

I spent over 10 years working with families who were facing foreclosure, listening to their stories. For to go on TV today and say that I'm the one who doesn't know what's going on is, frankly, very rich. My full response to Mr. Carson on >>

Impromptu running between meetings! and I are wearing white to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the House passing the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.

I asked about REOs - a basic term related to foreclosure - at a hearing today. He thought I was referring to a chocolate sandwich cookie. No, really.

When I received a life-saving surgery last year, I was hit with a surprise medical bill weeks after. I was fortunate to have the time and resources to navigate through my insurer's appeal department & an employer able and willing to help. Most Americans aren't that lucky.

This is not a partisan issue. No one - Democrat, Republican, or independent - wants to be on the hook for a massive surprise medical bill. I know what it's like to have to navigate the complexities of surprise billing, and I'm proud to work with Ds & Rs on a solution. THREAD ⬇️
