Oct 22 2017 - Russia

There's no proof yet that it's happened, and I think that proof will likely come with Mr. Mueller's investigation. He's got the ability to use a grand jury. He's got the ability to use the power of subpoena without question. And he's got the ability to do a criminal investigation.feedback

Sep 11 2017

Dogma and law are two different things. And I think whatever a religion is, it has its own dogma. The law is totally different. And I think in your case, professor, when you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that's of concern.feedback

Aug 30 2017 - Uber

Women have to develop a body of expertise. Figure out what you want to do for the next 50 years, get as much education as you can.feedback

Aug 12 2017 - Trump Presidency

I just wished he'd stop it, with the tweeting one day and the next day, it's something else. Why isn't the secretary of state the one making the statements? Why didn't he at least make it at the White House and not some golf course, or wherever he was? He speaks for the whole country, not just for his feelings at the moment. It's just dangerous.feedback

Aug 01 2017 - Marijuana

I'm not there. I think there's a lot about marijuana we don't know. I think marijuana has potential dangers to it. I think they need to be looked at – calibrated. I think we need to be concerned about young people, without judgement, particularly in cars. Particularly on Saturday night, smoking marijuana, candidly.feedback

Jul 29 2017

That has had a big impact. If you leave out a whole political party, and then you chasten them for not helping, well, that unites that party.feedback

The director of the FBI must be a leader who has the integrity and strength that will enable him to withstand any attempts at political interference.

Will be tell the president 'no' if improperly directed to pursue or end certain investigations?feedback

Jul 06 2017

Jun 16 2017

If the president thinks he can fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and replace him with someone who will shut down the investigation, he's in for a rude awakening. Even his staunchest supporters will balk at such a blatant effort to subvert the law.feedback

Jun 16 2017

The message the president is sending through his tweets is that he believes the rule of law doesn't apply to him and that anyone who thinks otherwise will be fired. That's undemocratic on its face and a blatant violation of the president's oath of office.feedback

Jun 11 2017 - Trump Presidency

There's an unpredictability. He projects an instability. Doing policy by tweets is really a shakeup for us, because there's no justification presented.feedback

May 22 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

We'll see what the future brings. This may portend that (Flynn) faces something serious.feedback

May 22 2017

I really think that rather than have all these memorandums and issues circulating around, that we need to put the facts before the American people. Did the president fire Comey because of his investigation and was he worried about what the investigation might conclude? If so, that borders on a very serious charge. And it's got to come from Director Comey himself.feedback

May 17 2017

Clearly, this is not the case.feedback

May 14 2017 - Trump Presidency

President Trump and the White House have presented an ever-changing narrative on the rationale for the firing of FBI Director Comey. This triggers a need for the Judiciary Committee to hold hearings and get to the bottom of this. This is a very serious matter, with significant implications for the rule of law and the strength of our democracy.feedback

May 11 2017

That surprised me, that a guy as highly prized as Rosenstein, on the basis of legal talent, professionalism in the department, would pull things out of a newspaper and quote them, in terms of somebody else's opinion of Comey.

May 11 2017 - Trump Presidency

I had been hopeful that we could have a line of activity that's going to bring a very divided country together. The problem out there is that people are so divided.feedback

May 10 2017 - Russia

If Director Comey was fired to stifle the F.B.I.'s Russia investigation – and the timing of this action makes that a real possibility – that simply can't be allowed to happen.feedback

May 10 2017

The email review process was repeatedly distorted by Republicans for political gain with little care for the facts. Today's letter makes Director Comey's actions nine days ago even more troubling.feedback

May 08 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

I don't want to, in any way, say that I know what she's going to say because I don't. But there are so many questions here as to who knew what when, what was done with this.feedback

May 07 2017 - American politics

Women's health is a big part of this and women are a majority of the population, and their health interests deserve to be contemplated in any reform.feedback

May 07 2017

What my position is and I believe this is the Democratic position: Don't repeal Obamcare. Take those sections, like the individual market, which has some problems in it, and deal with it and fix those sections, and it can be done. I'm really very worried that in the rush to judgement we create a major health care problem for people.feedback

May 05 2017 - IPhone

I was so struck when San Bernardino happened and you made overtures to allow that device to be opened, and then the FBI had to spend $900,000 to hack it open. And as I subsequently learned of some of the reason for it, there were good reasons to get into that device.feedback

May 03 2017

This move by leadership and appropriators cedes portions of this authority to the executive branch without a public debate.

That's a good line to recess on.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Supreme Court

For the life of me, I really don't know when you're there what you're going to do with it. As you say, this isn't text, this is real life. Young women take everything for granted today. All of that could be struck out with one decision.feedback

Mar 22 2017

What worries me is you have been very much able to avoid any specificity like no one I have ever seen before. And maybe that's a virtue, I don't know. But for us on this side, knowing where you stand on major questions of the day is really important to a vote 'aye,' and so that's why we pressed and pressed. This is real life, and young women take everything for granted today and all of that could be struck out with one decision.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - SCOTUS

How do we have confidence in you that you won't just be for the big corporations, that you will be for the little men?feedback

Mar 20 2017

We're going to try to put those pieces together so that the puzzle is complete and we have an understanding of what kind of a fifth vote will be going on the court. Voting rights. Right to choose. Guns. Corporate dollars in elections. Worker safety. Ability of federal agencies to regulate. All of the environmental issues – water, air.feedback

Mar 15 2017 - Terrorism

Please provide to the committee any materials related to any involvement you had in the issue of torture (including so-called 'enhanced interrogation techniques'), including this proposal.feedback

Clearly this is not the case.feedback

Mar 09 2017

We need steel spines, not weak knees when it comes to political independence in the Department of Justice.feedback

Feb 07 2017 - SCOTUS

Gorsuch "is a very caring person and he's obviously legally very smart.feedback

Feb 06 2017 - Supreme Court

I have no doubt that it will go to the Supreme Court, and probably some judgments will be made whether this president has exceed his authority or not. The president is not a dictator.feedback

Jan 10 2017 - Fiat Chrysler

Today's letter makes Director Comey's actions nine days ago even more troubling.feedback

Oct 28 2016

Director Comey admits 'the FBI cannot yet assess whether or not this material may be significant.' He cannot predict how long the investigation will take.
