Proud to support the passage of the Debbie Smith Act of 2019, which will provide much-needed resources to state and local law enforcement agencies to help speed up the testing of rape kits and ensure that the perpetrators of sexual assault are brought to justice faster.

A core feature of this anti-Semitic trend is the BDS movement, a political and economic attack on Israel’s right to exist. In February, the Senate passed bipartisan legislation that included a counter-BDS provision. Now the House must do the same.

There is a rising tide of anti-Semitism in the world, a scourge that is spreading in the Middle East, in Europe and even here in the United States. Political leaders on both sides of the aisle have a responsibility to confront this ugliness head-on.

Let me be clear: I will be the ‘grim reaper’ in the Senate when it comes to socialist schemes that would destroy jobs, private health insurance, and the free enterprise system.

For Democrats to call a qualified and experienced public servant like the Attorney General a liar is completely over the top. They’re suffering from “Trump Derangement Syndrome”.

Special Counsel Mueller spent two years on his investigation. He reached a conclusion: there was certainly no collusion on the President’s part. It’s time to move on.
