Trump should think twice before dangling more pardons & witnesses should think twice before lying to the Special Counsel in the hopes of getting a pardon. The prospect of state prosecutors bringing charges should be a warning: best to cooperate.

If Manafort lied to the Special Counsel to secure a pardon from Trump, that decision was ill-conceived. State charges for the same crimes are pardon-proof. Trump can't save him from those.

Facebook should have never spied on users to crush its competition. , , & I called for a stop to this egregious disregard for data privacy. Ending Onavo is long overdue.

Potentially reckless & corrupt—this suspect deal transferring nuclear technology to this repressive Saudi regime should be blocked by Congress. Close scrutiny is a first step, along with additional Congressional investigation.

Google’s end to forced arbitration with its workers strengthens their rights—a victory for employees who organized. It is only a first step nationally in the quest to end forced arbitration for all Americans, including the workers employed by Google’s contractors.

I’m outraged that the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund is running out of $$$ & will cut payments. Today, I joined firefighters & first responders at West Haven fire department to call on Congress to make the fund permanent & keep our promise to first responders, victims, & families.

Families hard hit by Republican tax scam—doing their returns now—deserve relief from a high tax burden resulting in part from the Trump SALT deduction cap. Our bill would reinstate the SALT deduction & provide some relief to families during tax season.

More than apologies, we need accountability for the military housing scandal. I called Sec. McMahon out in last week’s hearing, he agreed: “there’s additional accountability on both sides, our private partner side as well as the military side.” Beyond words, there must be action.

Trump’s disturbing pattern of pressuring law enforcement officers to make these investigations go away to cover-up his own possible criminal wrongdoing is an attack on our country’s law enforcement & makes a strong case for obstruction of justice.

Stunning report from . Ordering McGahn to fire Mueller, floating pardons, & now asking Whitaker to replace the head of SDNY criminal probe: Individual-1 seems deeply afraid of investigations encircling his company, foundation, campaign, inauguration, transition, & admin.

The barbaric individuals who commit the crime of animal crushing should be held accountable for their heinous acts. Today at the West Hartford Animal Control, I talked about my bill w/ that makes clear there is no place in the US for the maiming & torturing of animals.

This image is stomach turning. The real Roger Stone—criminally threatening a federal judge. Another Trump associate demonstrates contempt for the rule of law & the desperate need for accountability.

After William Barr’s confirmation, only our bipartisan Special Counsel Transparency Act can guarantee public disclosure of findings & evidence as well as the report. The American people deserve to know.

Anxiety & Anger—that’s what 9/11 survivors & victims’ families are justifiably feeling. I pledge: I’ll be fighting for bipartisan legislation to assure full funding & stop outrageous cuts to 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund benefits.

Cutting 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund payouts by half or more is outrageous—hideously unfair & unacceptable. America must keep faith with 9/11 First Responders, victims, & families. Congress must act to stop these unconscionable cuts!
