Congressional leaders are the president’s accomplices, and most members of Congress are happy to have it that way, but the Constitution remains the law.

Offensive military action requires congressional approval, and we can’t assess the situation without more information. Once strikes begin, the administration cannot guarantee things will not spiral out of control. We must do everything possible to prevent another reckless war.

Glad the president pulled back from striking Iran but still waiting on the administration to make its case to Congress. “Congressional leaders” are not Congress. Each of us in Congress has a duty to represent our constituents in a potential war that will affect their families.

There are never any prizes, in politics, for criticising your own side. Your supporters hate it, and your opponents take no notice. But there are times when you have to do it or the system breaks down.

A phenomenal conversation with Congressman . Listen as we discuss Trump, impeachment, obstruction of justice, the GOP, nationalism and populism, and the prospects of a potential Amash 2020 run for POTUS. You don't want to miss this episode.

This legislation is a sweetheart deal for Big Government. It empowers the one entity that should have no say over our speech to regulate and influence what we say online.

Once again, attempted to restrain secret surveillance of Americans under FISA. Once again, Congress rejected his efforts.

It doesn’t matter whether your favorite founding father was Hamilton, Madison, Jefferson or Washington; they all recognized the wisdom of leaving the power to declare war in the legislative branch & the danger of letting the executive have that power.

This afternoon, I spoke on the House floor in support of my amendment to rein in FISA and protect Americans’ privacy, and I noted the hypocrisy of Republican and Democratic leaders on this issue. Here’s a short clip:
