Last quote by Mark W. Warner

We need to keep the eye on the ball, which is Russian involvement in 2016 – how did it happen, and why did it happen? I'm not sure the president understands the notion of an independent judiciary.feedback

Mark W. Warner quotes

Oct 29 2017

What I fear is 2018. If you look at Russian intervention in the American elections, in terms of sowing chaos, they had pretty good R.O.I.feedback

Oct 29 2017

They've grown so quickly. I'm not sure they've fully realized the implications of all their power. There is too much at stake.feedback

Oct 29 2017

Look, I'm pro-tech. I'm pro-innovation.feedback

Oct 28 2017

It still feels a little quiet for a gubernatorial race.feedback

Oct 24 2017 - Brexit

Russian active measures didn't begin, or end, with the American presidential election. America's allies all need to be on guard against Russian propaganda and misinformation.feedback

Oct 22 2017 - Russia

At the end of the day, what we owe the American people is the truth. And if there's something there, then they should know that. And if there's not something there, I'll be the first to acknowledge that.feedback

Oct 20 2017 - Facebook

I said, This doesn't pass the smell test. You gotta go back and dig in. If this were a new market opportunity, I know the resources you could put into it.feedback

Oct 18 2017 - Amazon

Facebook's partnership with Virginia and this significant investment in Henrico County are great news for the region.feedback

Oct 04 2017 - Russia

You can't walk away from this and believe that Russia is not actively trying to create chaos in our election process.feedback

Sep 28 2017 - Twitter

This raises at an even greater level the necessity that the American public has the ability to know when they are seeing a political ad, who's behind it – particularly if it is being sponsored by foreign agents.feedback

Sep 28 2017 - Russia

Their response was frankly inadequate on almost every level.feedback

Sep 28 2017 - Russia

But we'll be in conversations about who's going to have the most relevant information.feedback

Sep 26 2017

I question if Equifax even has the right to continue providing these services.feedback

Sep 25 2017 - Obamacare

This is the most radical change to our health care system – more radical even than Obamacare was – and to put this slapdash hearing together without appropriate review ... is the height of irresponsibility.feedback

Sep 25 2017 - Republican Party

The audacity of a group of Republican senators saying they know more than everyone in the health care community is outrageous. If this was a good idea, it would be a good idea three or four months from now, after it had been thoroughly reviewed. I think this is an awful idea, an awful approach that would devastate our health care system, and that's why they're trying to rush it through, because it's all about a political victory. It's not about fixing health care.feedback

Sep 21 2017

Government and businesses need to step up their efforts to protect our most sensitive personal and commercial information.feedback

Sep 21 2017 - Facebook

Just as the case with Facebook ... I think the Russians actively used Twitter accounts. They don't screen out as much anonymous or fake accounts, but I feel like it's important to let them come in and make that presentation first.feedback

Sep 21 2017 - Russia

I just wonder, a company that prides itself on data, knowledge of all of us. I find it hard to believe it's taken this long. Maybe they've not put their resources behind this.feedback

Sep 21 2017 - Russia

I would point out that, you know, back around the election time, if you were to Google election hacking, most of the stories that came up were Russian-based. That raises a question to me – why wasn't Fox or MSNBC higher on that list?feedback

Sep 20 2017 - Facebook

This is uncharted territory. The growth in political advertising is in the digital world, and if this is the most targeted and potentially most effective way into politics, the paid advertising rules that broadcasters rely upon should also apply in the social media world.feedback

Sep 15 2017 - Facebook

This is a wild, wild west.feedback

Sep 12 2017 - Facebook

We're seeing more evidence of additional ads and how they are used to manipulate individuals.feedback

Sep 11 2017 - Obamacare

If there's one thing we've seen, when either political party tries to do big things only with one side of the aisle, you generally screw up. We saw that perhaps with Democrats when we passed Obamacare [and] Dodd-Frank. We clearly saw it this year when Republicans tried to do health care. I spent ... more years in business than I have been in politics. I think I've got something to add to that debate. But so far, there's been no outreach at all. Nobody calls.feedback

Sep 07 2017 - Facebook

An American can still figure out what the content is being used in TV advertising. You can go look at the ad. But in social media there is no such requirement. So, you know, we may need a legislative solution.feedback

Sep 07 2017 - Facebook

Americans, when it comes to elections, ought to be able to know there is foreign-sponsored content coming into their electoral process.feedback

Sep 07 2017 - Twitter

It was my belief that the Russians were using those sites to interfere in our elections, and the first reaction from Facebook was, No. You're crazy. I think what we saw yesterday in terms of their brief was the tip of the iceberg.feedback

Sep 07 2017 - Facebook

As you see for example in the case of Facebook, they denied that they were being used in any way. They didn't do anything.feedback

Sep 01 2017

In other words: we are not making our elections any safer by withholding information about the scope and scale of the threat.feedback

Aug 01 2017

We're trying to take the lightest touch possible.feedback

Jul 21 2017 - Russia

Pardoning any individuals who may have been involved would be crossing a fundamental line.feedback

Jul 19 2017 - Trump Presidency

What we see here is again senior levels of the Trump administration and now the Trump family not coming clean with information. I wonder how many more people are going to... show up in that room at one point or another?feedback

Jul 17 2017

Whether we will be able to get the Russian nationals to come over and testify is an open question, (but) those people that our committee has jurisdiction over, the Americans, I sure as heck want to talk to all of them.feedback

Jul 15 2017

We now have three examples of meetings that he omitted or forgot.feedback

Jul 12 2017 - Russia

This is black and white. Trump officials at the highest levels knew Russia was working to aid Donald Trump and welcomed Russia's interference.feedback

Jul 11 2017

This is the first time that the public has seen clear evidence of senior level members of the Trump campaign meeting with Russians.feedback

Jul 11 2017

Lying is not a rookie mistake.feedback

Jul 10 2017

I found it very interesting that in the memo that you wrote after this 14 February pull-aside, you made clear that you wrote that memo in a way that was unclassified. If you affirmatively made the decision to write a memo that was unclassified, was that because you felt at some point the facts of that meeting would have to come clean and come clear, and actually be able to be cleared in a way that could be shared with the American people?feedback

Jul 06 2017

There was a lot of pressure early on to bring in some of the bigger names early. She was very much saying, No, let's do this in an orderly, methodical fashion.feedback

Jun 30 2017

Government doesn't do a very good job of upscaling people.feedback

Jun 30 2017

Every politician says they want more carpenters and welders and plumbers, but we don't really put the policy implications behind it.feedback

Jun 29 2017 - Russia

We have a commitment to get appropriate access to the Comey memos. I'm pleased. I think it's critical information that we have to have as part of our review process.feedback

Jun 29 2017 - Russia

I would have thought we would have been further along, but I would never have expected the administration to fire Jim Comey. You can't make this stuff up.feedback

Jun 29 2017 - American politics

I do not see how Americans are made safer when they do not know which state elections systems Russia tried to hack.feedback

Jun 29 2017 - Republican Party

I've taken my share of hits from both sides for being bipartisan. I'm going to keep doing that.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Diabetes

One-off carve outs…are we only going to deal with opioids? Are we also going to deal with alcohol? Are we also going to deal with other drug addictions? What about cancer? What about diabetes?feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Trumpcare

You don't take close to 800 billion dollars out of Medicaid that serves not only poor individuals but two-thirds of the folks in nursing homes. Many, many children with disabilities, people with addiction and pit one challenge group against the other. I think that would be short-sighted if there was only the opioid relief and there wasn't the other kind of more comprehensive drug and other alcohol rehabilitation.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - Trump Presidency

It's remarkable the president was so flippant to make his original tweet and then frankly stonewall the media and the country for weeks. I don't know how this serves the country's interests.feedback

Jun 21 2017 - US, Russia relations

I do not believe our country is made safer by holding this information back from the American public. To have the number of states that were hacked into or attempted to be hacked into still kept secret is just crazy in my mind.feedback

Jun 15 2017 - Iran

You add up, without firing a shot or shooting a missile, the amount of disruption the Russians have caused in Western societies at large – all that for less than 5 percent of the cost of a new aircraft carrier. Pretty good rate of return.feedback

Jun 14 2017 - Yemen

I am aware of the concerns with Saudi Arabia's engagement in Yemen, including in operations that have led to civilian casualties.feedback

Jun 08 2017

It's outrageous. He needs to tell his side of the story.feedback

Jun 08 2017 - Trump Presidency

I do want to emphasize what is happening here – the president of the United States is asking the FBI director to drop an ongoing investigation into the president's former National security advisor.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Trump Presidency

The American public deserves to know what the president of the United States did and what he asked of the leaders of our intelligence community.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Russia

You may not have felt pressured, but if he is even asking, to me that is a very relevant piece of information. At some point these facts have to come out.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Trump Presidency

I think it's more than a little curious that it appears obviously the president is trying to change the topic because we've got two days of hearings here that could be explosive.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Russia

I know that there are going to be members who want to hear from Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein about his involvement in the (Comey) firing. My hope will be that Admiral Rogers and Director Coats won't try to hide behind executive privilege ... about the press reports about the president asking them to downplay the Russia investigation.feedback

Jun 07 2017

The president's comments slurring Jim Comey in front of the Russians is just inexcusable.feedback

Jun 07 2017

It's my hope in the coming days that we can get more information out about that.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

We can't make any judgment on whether he's fully complied because we've got to review the documents.feedback

Jun 04 2017 - Democratic Party

Listen, there's a lot of smoke. We have no smoking gun at this point.feedback

Jun 04 2017 - Watergate

Clearly, it would be very, very troubling if the president of the United States is interfering in investigations that affect potentially the president and his closest associates. I want to ask those individuals directly, Did they have that kind of pressure?feedback

Jun 04 2017 - Travel ban

If there's new procedures put in place, put those procedures in place. Don't continue to call for this travel ban, which is frankly all of the leaders in the intelligence community have said would be in effect, a slap in the face to Muslim Americans and others, and in many ways, might actually incite more incidents.feedback

Jun 04 2017 - Trump Presidency

I think he would be on shaky legal ground, to say the least. Director Comey was fired by the president And you have the president himself making derogatory comments, in effect, at least reported to the press, calling Comey a nut job. ...Totally inappropriate.feedback

May 25 2017 - Trump Presidency

I've seen lots of tricky budgets before, but this may take the cake. You assume abolishment of the so-called death tax, estate tax, but ... you still count the revenues from the estate and gift tax, which is kind of a tricky thing. I would call that double-counting.feedback

May 19 2017

Moreover, the American people deserve an opportunity to hear it.feedback

May 19 2017

Director Comey served his country with honor for many years, and he deserves an opportunity to tell his story. Moreover, the American people deserve an opportunity to hear it.feedback

May 18 2017 - Trump Presidency

We've got questions about the president's comments about tapes – secret tapes – we have question about transcripts from the meetings with the Russians, and we have questions about obtaining former director Comey's memo and that's just Wednesday.feedback

May 17 2017 - Democratic Party

I think there are an awful lot of members on both sides of the aisle that want to know what he knew. I don't think I know any member that I've talked to, publicly or privately, Democrat or Republican, that doesn't think Jim Comey doesn't deserve a chance to tell his side of the story.feedback

May 15 2017 - Russia

If true, this is a slap in the face to the intel community. Risking sources & methods is inexcusable, particularly with the Russians.feedback

May 15 2017 - Russia

If true, this is a slap in the face to the intel community. Risking sources and methods is inexcusable, particularly with the Russians.feedback

May 14 2017

We have got to make sure that these tapes, if they exist, don't mysteriously disappear.feedback

May 12 2017

Yes well, one of the things we did do is we invited Comey to come and testify on Tuesday. He is not going to be testifying on Tuesday, but it is our hope in the not too distant future, that we can find time for him to come in and talk to our committee.feedback

May 11 2017 - Trump Presidency

I voted to confirm this individual as deputy attorney general. I was disappointed. I still find the timing of the dismissal very troubling. I expressed that to Mr Rosenstein. He took it under advisement, he listened.feedback

May 11 2017 - Democratic Party

This is a continuing pattern of disrespecting the men and women who serve in our intelligence community.feedback

May 11 2017

We've made a request, to FinCEN in the Treasury Department, to make sure, not just for example vis-a-vis the president, but just overall our effort to try to follow the intel no matter where it leads. You get materials that show if there have been, what level of financial ties between, I mean some of the stuff, some of the Trump-related officials, Trump campaign-related officials and other officials and where those dollars flow – not necessarily from Russia.feedback

May 11 2017 - Trump Presidency

The timing of Director Comey's dismissal to me and many committee members on both sides of the aisle is especially troubling. He was leading an active counterintelligence investigation into any links between the Trump campaign and the Russian government or its representatives, and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia's efforts to interfere in our election.feedback

May 11 2017

I think that we ought to frankly hold off on the FBI director until we get the special prosecutor.feedback

May 11 2017 - Russia

While we don't know how long you will be acting as F.B.I. director, my first questions for you, even in this public setting, will be for you to assure the committee that if you come under any political influence from the White House or others to squash this investigation, or impede it in any way, that you will let this committee know. It's hard to avoid the conclusion that the president's decision to remove Director Comey was related to this investigation, and that is truly unacceptable. Our committee will get to the bottom of what happened in the 2016 presidential election.feedback

May 10 2017

My hope is that he'll take advantage of this opportunity.feedback

May 10 2017 - Trump Presidency

I think that individual should not be one of the political appointees. I do not have faith in the political appointees.feedback

Apr 25 2017

I have noticed more and more people mentioning that in the United States and people don't tend to mention things randomly.feedback

Apr 21 2017 - French election 2017

French presidential candidates right now have been the subject of Russia propaganda and disinformation.feedback

Apr 20 2017 - Iran

China, Russia and Iran have real, long-term strategies. Why don't we have one, too?feedback

Apr 07 2017 - Syria conflict

I am hopeful these strikes will convince the Assad regime that such actions should never be repeated. President Trump has said repeatedly that his objective in Syria is to defeat (Islamic State militants). Last night's strike was aimed at a different objective. President Trump needs to articulate a coherent strategy for dealing with this complex conflict, because the consequences of a misstep are grave.feedback

Apr 03 2017 - Russia

That may just be the FSB.feedback

Apr 03 2017 - SCOTUS

My understanding was he wouldn't even vouch for Brown v. Board of Education.feedback

Mar 31 2017 - NAFTA

It's not ripping up Nafta, but there are a bunch of sticks of dynamite contained in those pages.feedback

Mar 30 2017

This Russian 'propaganda on steroids' was designed to poison the national conversation in America.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Russia

Candidly, while it helped one candidate this time, they are not favoring one party over another, and consequently should be a concern for all of us.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Russia

We simply must – and we will – get this right. The chairman and I agree it is vitally important that we do this as a credible, bipartisan and transparent manner as possible. As was said yesterday at our press conference, chairman Burr and I trust each other.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - Russia

Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a deliberate campaign carefully constructed to undermine our election. There were upwards of 1,000 paid internet trolls working out of a facility in Russia, in effect, taking over series of computers, which is then called a botnet. We are in a whole new realm around cyber that provides opportunity for huge, huge threats to our basic democracy. You are seeing it right now.feedback

We are in a whole new realm around cyber that provides opportunity for huge, huge threats to our basic democracy. You are seeing it right now.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - Russia

As a former tech guy what really concerns me is at least some reports, and we've got to get to the bottom of this, that there were upwards of a thousand paid internet trolls working at a facility in Russia in effect taking over a series of computers which are then called a botnet. They can then generate news down to specific areas.feedback

Mar 29 2017 - American politics

An outside foreign adversary effectively sought to hijack our most critical democratic process – the election of the president – and in the process decided to favor one candidate over another. I can assure you, they didn't do it because it was in the vested interest of the American people. Russia's goal, Vladimir Putin's goal, is a weaker United States – weaker economically, weaker globally – and that should be a concern to all Americans, regardless of party affiliation. We cannot tell the American people our conclusions unless we have access to all the pertinent information.feedback

Mar 29 2017

I have confidence in [Sen.] Richard Burr that we together, with the members of our committee, are going to get to the bottom of this.feedback

Mar 23 2017 - Israel

The current administration has expressed multiple viewpoints on the future, inviting concern that there may be a departure from decades of bipartisan U.S. support for a two-state solution. The nomination of Mr. Friedman to serve as ambassador to Israel adds to this concern.feedback

Mar 16 2017 - Trump Tower

Based on the information available to us, we see no indications that Trump Tower was the subject of surveillance by any element of the United States government either before or after Election Day 2016.feedback

Mar 10 2017

There is nothing I have done in my life in public that is as important as trying to get this investigation done right and bipartisan and get the facts out to the American people.feedback

Mar 09 2017 - Democratic Party

The American people deserve to hear all of the facts.feedback

Mar 05 2017 - Wiretapping

This feels like an attempt where the president is trying to distract us by throwing out unsubstantiated information. To make that type of claim without any evidence is, I think, very reckless.feedback

Feb 14 2017 - NAFTA

I can't see how it's possible at all. It would be very complicated to do and I don't think Mexico would ... ever go along with it.feedback

Jan 30 2017

Throughout the confirmation process, Mr. Mnuchin has failed to adequately demonstrate that he will be a forceful advocate for innovative policies that will make the U.S. economy work better for the majority of Americans.feedback

Jan 10 2017

The Russians also hacked systems associated with the Republicans. They just chose not to release that material yet. There's nothing that prevents them from doing so at a time of their choosing in the future.feedback

Dec 25 2016

You should ask yourself seriously, do you want this device in your home right now, while the industry takes action to fix these problems.feedback

Dec 25 2016

We're going to go from 12 billion devices we currently have, to over 30 billion devices by 2020, all interconnected. That's going to add to the ease of our life but if all these devices are easily hacked into it could mean we could have a whole new host of security concerns.feedback

Dec 25 2016

I think all of us, from industry to individuals, to government are going to have to up our game in terms of making sure these devices are safe from the very real threat of cyber hackers.feedback

Dec 15 2016

If a breach occurs, consumers should not be first learning of it three years later. Prompt notification enables users to potentially limit the harm of a breach of this kind, particularly when it may have exposed authentication information such as security question answers they may have used on other sites.feedback

Nov 21 2016

I am encouraged that the OCC has now positioned itself to take appropriate action, and I would strongly urge them to do so.feedback

Sep 26 2016

Disclosure is the foundation of federal securities laws, and public companies are required to disclose material events that shareholders should know about.feedback

Aug 08 2016

He was sure it was gone. I really didn't expect to see it again. On my end, it's pretty amazing and it's pretty bizarre where it ended up.feedback

Aug 08 2016

I wasn't overly worried about it because I use my older model for fishing and hunting. It wasn't my everyday leg, to put it that way.feedback
