I am asking President Trump to provide his legal rationale for striking Syria. Without congressional approval, it seems clear that these strikes were illegal. Congress has the constitutional power to authorize war, not the executive. Trump owes us an explanation.

39 senators. That’s the most ever—in all of American history—to formally call for the resignation of a Cabinet-level official. That’s how bad Scott Pruitt is — for the EPA, for taxpayers, for our country. It’s time to , President Trump.

We reduced the veterans' unemployment rate because there was a patriotic desire to confront it. We need the same patriotic mentality about military spouses, who too often struggle to find work. Watch the full segment here:

Why do we require Congress rather than the Executive to start war? “[M]onarchs will often make war when their nations are to get nothing by it, but for the purposes and objects merely personal, such as ... revenge for personal affronts.” —Federalist No. 4

For too long, Congress has given Presidents a blank check to wage war. It’s time for that to stop. We’ve introduced a new plan—Democrats and Republicans—to reassert Congress’ authority to authorize where, when, and with who we are at war. Read it here:

Liviu Librescu survived the Holocaust as a young boy. Decades later, he lost his life to senseless gun violence as a professor at Virginia Tech. Sen. Tim Kaine is telling his story through tears because it must be told.

11 years ago today was the worst day of my life, when we lost 32 innocent lives at Virginia Tech in what was then the worst mass shooting in U.S. history. So many “worst mass shootings” have happened since, but the same forces keep blocking meaningful action. Enough is enough.

Now more than ever, we need a Secretary of State who will stand strong for vigorous diplomacy, not exacerbate President Trump’s proclivity towards conflict. Unfortunately, Mike Pompeo has often demonstrated a similar disposition against diplomacy, so I will oppose his nomination.

Of course citizen Trump said President Obama couldn’t strike Syria without congressional approval—but now President Trump doesn’t think he needs Congress. “I just can’t wait to be king!”

Trump’s decision to launch airstrikes against Syria without Congress’s approval is illegal. We need to stop giving presidents a blank check to wage war. Today it’s Syria, but what’s going to stop him from bombing Iran or North Korea next?

President Trump resurrects long forgotten case—set to pardon former WH aide convicted of obstructing justice. Seems like he’s sending a message to current WH staff worried about investigation of Trump obstruction: “Scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours.”
