Credible evidence led FBI to believe that Russians were coordinating w/ Page & others in Trump campaign— no “witch hunt,” then or now.

Carter Page FISA documents show convincingly that serious & significant factual evidence supported the warrant—and renewals. The national security need for surveillance was real & credible, as the FISA Court correctly concluded—repudiating false accusations by Trump cronies.

Russian jobs—apparently a priority for Secretary Mnuchin over national security. Which country’s Treasury Secretary is he?

No red carpet for Putin—or entry to USA—till he turns over his Russian spies indicted by the Special Counsel & stops attacking our democracy.

"For the President of the United States to so disrespect and humiliate his Director of Intelligence is not only a violation of his oath of office, it is a profound disservice to our nation ... Trump likes to operate without intelligence."

Deeply troubling proposed rate increases are directly the fault of Trump’s systematic sabotage of the ACA—relentlessly destabilizing & destroying health insurance markets. Trump has declared war on Americans’ health care & the price is paid by families in CT & across the country.

So proud of all in CT who have banded together to aid Puerto Rican families. Disaster relief is a federal obligation & the Admin must step up now to provide recovery assistance—a Marshall Plan to address access to housing, electricity, healthcare, education & more.

Court blocks FEMA from ending Transitional Shelter Assistance for Puerto Rico—but this fleeting relief is no replacement for long-term planning. Why is Trump Admin refusing to activate assistance for Puerto Rico, like FEMA did for New Orleans, TX, & FL?

If anything, Putin should be indicted, not invited. The last Special Counsel Indictment shows his criminal culpability for 12 Russian military spies’ cyber attacks. Add Putin as a co-conspirator?

I will continue to call for Senate hearings to learn what the President may have committed to Putin behind closed doors & work with my colleagues to hold the President accountable.

There is no moral or legal equivalence between the legal indictments against 12 Russian spies & Putin’s personal vendetta against a former US diplomat, who served his country by challenging Russia’s horrific human rights record.

The fact that President Trump even considered this outrageous request—even described it as an “incredible offer"—is horrific & reflects President Trump’s own delusions regarding his executive power.

President Trump cannot use American diplomats as negotiating chips with Vladimir Putin.

Restricting access to his documents is a grave mistake for lifetime judicial appointments.

It should stand as a rebuke to my Republican colleagues who are seeking to severely constrict review of Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination to .

Ryan Bounds was rejected today because of his troubling views on race & equal protection—which I raised in opposing him. He should never have been nominated.

Fraudulent veteran charities must be stopped from taking advantage of patriotic Americans & robbing funding from reputable veteran services.

Athletes should be free to compete & represent our nation without fear of abuse. Senator & I are working to make this prospect the reality for current & future athletes.
