The reason why President Trump is thwarting every Senator’s ability to do our job is simple: Whitaker would never pass the advice & consent test.

Americans prize checks & balances. Trump's dictatorial appointment of Whitaker denies Senators from completing our constitutional obligation to scrutinize the nomination of our top law enforcement official. We are left with no choice but to seek recourse through the courts.

The CIA drops the dime on Crown Prince MBS—definitively, indisputably. Time for justice in Khashoggi’s mob-like murder. No accepting Saudi evil.

On MBS’s orders, 15 thugs nightmarishly tricked, tortured, suffocated, & assassinated an American-employed journalist. Americans must hold MBS accountable. This chilling intel verdict must stop the Trump supported cover-up.

Trump must accept (for once) his intelligence experts’ incontrovertible conclusion: Crown Prince MBS is culpable for Khashoggi’s monstrous murder. This brazen killing must have consequences—sanctions, prosecution, removal of MBS & others, not continued cover-up, enabled by Trump.

Gutting Title IX’s enforcement guidance seems designed to protect universities from responsibility, rather than students from sexual assault. We should be holding schools accountable for their policies to ensure a safe campus for everyone—not letting them off the hook.

This ruling is a victory for press freedom & the rule of law. Let this be a message to President Trump: intimidating, berating, & threatening the press will not be tolerated in our country.

Death sentences for henchmen are no substitute for holding accountable top Saudi officials. Silencing witnesses & imposing token sanctions simply enables a Crown Prince cover-up. An international investigation & full disclosure are still critical.

Through slick marketing tactics & the use of flavors, e-cig manufacturers have targeted our kids—copying the predatory playbook of Big Tobacco. I commend the FDA for finally moving forward with common sense solutions—but more can & must be done to end this public health epidemic.

The Coast Guard calls CT home—employing thousands. The bipartisan Coast Guard reauthorization bill is a major win for our state & nation—it will ensure the Coast Guard remains strong & authorizes federal funds for the construction & design of the Coast Guard Museum in New London.

FDA’s approval of an opioid 10x more powerful than fentanyl & 1,000x stronger than morphine will only add fuel to the opioid epidemic. Dsuvia can cause death with one use & would have catastrophic consequences if it reached the streets.

E-cigarette use is an epidemic & belated half-measures like those by Juul are too little, too late to save kids from addiction. FDA mustn't fall for these loophole-riddled announcements & immediately ban all flavors regardless of where/how they are sold.

Disturbing rise of hate crimes in the U.S. continues for a third consecutive year. America must not be the home to hate or harbor this racist, anti-Semitic, anti-LGBTQ+ rage. Congress must pass the NO HATE Act & stand together in opposition of these abhorrent crimes.

SecDef Mattis shows both moral compass & military acumen to stop US refueling assistance in Saudi slaughter of innocent civilians in Yemen. Next steps will demand similar courage.
