AG Barr’s press conference was outrageous. What we just saw was partisan spin. And I'm deeply disturbed that Barr briefed the WH on the Mueller report's findings ahead of its public release. The AG should represent the American people, not the president or the White House.

As Trump's cruel, discriminatory transgender ban goes into effect today, I want to make this clear: We cannot end the fight. I'll keep pushing to pass my bipartisan legislation to protect current and future transgender troops. I hope you'll keep speaking out.

GE spent decades dumping PCBs into the Hudson River and fought relentlessly to avoid the responsibility of cleaning it up. Let's be clear: The cleanup isn't finished. The Hudson River is still polluted with this dangerous chemical. The EPA should reverse this decision.

Because of serious bureaucratic flaws, 99% of our nation's public servants have been denied the loan forgiveness they've earned through service to our communities. It’s unfair. I'm proud to partner with to overhaul the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program.

This is a moment when we have to decide: what kind of country do we want to be? Will we fight for this democracy? Will we take back this democracy? To do that and to win we need to start marching and protesting. It is up to us! -

If our country slashes funding for critical domestic programs for nutrition, education, and healthcare while bolstering defense spending—as Trump has proposed in his budget—wouldn’t that mean fewer Americans ready to serve in our military?

There's no justification for the inhumane treatment that pregnant women have endured while in CBP custody. The stories we've heard are both shocking and heartbreaking. We're demanding answers and calling for action.
