Enough is enough. I urge my Republican colleagues here in the Senate, speak up. Put country before party and certainly before Putin.

Instead of condemning President Trump and supporting the Special Counsel’s efforts to get to the bottom of Russian election meddling, many Congressional Republicans are actively working to undermine the investigation.

We should all agree that our country comes before party. So then why do most of my Republican colleagues remain silent on the President's performance yesterday?

We have an American President who seems utterly incapable of saying the obvious to Vladimir Putin. He’s still in denial this morning.

Question to Republican leaders: Will you stand with John McCain’s clear condemnation of President Trump’s Helsinki performance?

The President’s non-stop preening over his 2016 election victory shows clearly that his ego is more important to him than standing up for America.

President Trump’s performance in Helsinki was appalling. By ignoring the evidence of Russian interference in our 2016 election, President Trump joined Vladimir Putin in blaming America for the charges and throwing our intelligence and justice officials under the bus.

The proposed Sinclair-Tribune merger is bad news for the country, Illinois, and Chicago. Sinclair's proposal relies on sham legal loopholes to skirt media ownership limits. I urged the FCC to give this proposed merger careful consideration, and I’m glad they heeded my warning.

This Mueller investigation, which the President calls a "rigged witch hunt," just produced the indictment of 12 Russian military intelligence members for an act of cyber war attacking our democracy. How is Putin supposed to take it seriously when Trump mocks the whole enterprise?

Again, unless POTUS holds Putin accountable for: - 2016 election interference - Undermining European democracies - The UK chemical attack - Invading Crimea - Arming Ukrainian separatists - Supporting Assad’s war crimes This is just another photo-op with a dictator.

President Trump must cancel his meeting with Putin if he doesn't plan to make 2016 election interference the top issue of discussion. If he insists on meeting with Putin, doing so without other Americans in the room would be a terrible mistake & raises serious questions.

With more than 65 million people around the world forcibly displaced from their homes, the Trump Administration is doing everything in its power to prevent innocent victims of war and brutal gang violence from seeking safe haven in our country. This does not reflect our values.

Sat down with lawyers and advocates who have been working directly with children who’ve been separated from their parents at the border. Hearing their stories sheds light on the many challenges caused by the Trump Administration’s cruel immigration policies.

Proud to join on this bill. It will provide ATF the authority it needs to go after bad gun dealers and improve enforcement of the gun laws already on the books.
