I am calling on the FDA to speed up and make public their final report on the prevalence of the weed-killing chemical, glyphosate, in many foods families regularly eat–cereals, granola bars, oats, snack bars, & more. We need answers and we need them now.

Brett Kavanaugh praised the dissents that would have overturned Roe v. Wade and barred marriage equality. His views on these fundamental freedoms are no mystery.

This week we honor our community health centers. They guarantee that high-quality health care is available to millions of New Yorkers, no matter who they are or where they live. I will never stop fighting to ensure they have the resources they need.

This seems like a really important story for Judge Kavanaugh to read.

Since Republicans have chosen secrecy over transparency, Democrats issued a FOIA request to the National Archives, seeking the full gamut of Kavanaugh’s records, including from his time as Staff Secretary. We stand ready to sue the Archives for his full records, if necessary.

. & I have introduced a resolution that does just this. It affirms that the press is not the enemy of the people. And it reaffirms the vital role the free press serves to inform the electorate, uncover truth, act as a check & advance democratic norms & freedoms.

The GOP obstruction of Kavanaugh’s records is flat-out wrong. The American people deserve a methodical & thorough examination of a nom who will wield immense influence over their lives for generations. Republicans seem intent on denying the American people that basic right.

Before we elevate someone who may have to rule on the issue of Presidential subpoenas to a lifetime appointment on the highest Court in the land,don’t the Senate & American ppl deserve to know what the nom thinks & may have already said on this critical issue? ?

Yesterday, President Trump’s lawyer declared that President Trump may decide not to comply with a subpoena, issued by the Special Counsel and said that they are prepared to take that fight all the way to the SCOTUS.

Even worse, at the moment, 1/3 of those documents are being deemed as “committee confidential” by GOP & have not been released for review by the full Senate or the public, stacking an additional layer of secrecy on top of multiple layers of existing secrecy. ?

Meanwhile, the small % of docs the Judiciary Committee will get to see are being pre-screened by a GOP political operative who worked for Kavanaugh in the Bush admin and currently represents Steve Bannon, Reince Priebus and Don McGahn. If this seems shady, it’s because it is.

The GOP is deliberately withholding the entire record of Judge Kavanaugh’s 3 years as Staff Secretary– the most senior position he held in the Bush Admin & a job Kavanaugh himself said was “formative” & “instructive” as preparation for being a judge

Republicans announced hearings will begin on Sept 4th. Let’s recap how the Senate GOP’s blatant and historic obstruction of Judge Kavanaugh's record is denying both the Senate & the American people access to critical information about a potential Supreme Court justice.

Republicans used to demand transparency for SCOTUS noms. Now they’re blocking nearly all of Judge Kavanaugh’s records from public release and trying to rush through his nomination. What are Republicans hiding?
