May 04 2017

We've got a specific focus for this hearing that both the former deputy attorney general and the former director of national intelligence can speak to. She wasn't one of the witnesses that we noticed the hearing for.feedback

Scott Pruitt has a long record of dark money fundraising and cozy relationships with big, fossil-fuel political donors. The American people need to know whether he is using his position at EPA to promote the political actors who support him.feedback

Apr 07 2017 - Syria conflict

Last night's military action in Syria met my standards for responding to atrocity: a limited action; with a clear objective.feedback

Apr 02 2017 - Supreme Court

Dark money infiltrating the confirmation of his Supreme Court nominee is a further sad sign of billionaire and special interest influence gnawing at the heart of American democracy. I don't mind the money coming in. Let it be transparent. Let them talk, but let there be total transparency.feedback

The most voracious and malign special interest in American politics – the fossil fuel industry – has captured the Trump administration, installed its top henchmen at the EPA, and gone to work trying to unwind any environmental and public health safeguard that gets in the way of its profits.feedback

Mar 28 2017 - Climate change

Just a few years ago, Donald Trump and his children supported 'meaningful and effective measures' to fight climate change, calling it 'scientifically irrefutable' and its consequences 'catastrophic' and 'irreversible'. Today he began to unravel the clean power plan, one of the most important actions we have taken to fight climate change, just like the big polluters wanted.feedback

Mar 27 2017 - SCOTUS

They can, but by all rights, 60 votes ought to be the standard. When he doesn't get 60 votes, that's going to give Mitch McConnell a tough choice. He'll have to either change the candidate or change the rules. And it's not going to be easy for him to change the rules, because a lot of people in his caucus will push back. We have to have the vote, show this guy can't get 60, and see where it goes from there. In the crucible of the Senate, sometimes good things can emerge.feedback

Mar 27 2017 - SCOTUS

If four, or five, or two, or no Democrats want to support him, the result is the same: Not 60. This is a problem [Republicans] should have seen when they picked a nominee off of a list from special interest groups.feedback

Mar 27 2017

This is a mile out of bounds by any standard.feedback

Mar 26 2017

We already do it for the people we care the most about – our veterans and our seniors.feedback

Mar 26 2017

The very best market-based solution is to have a public option. The best way to show that a stick is crooked is to put a straight stick next to it. If you do that, the private sector can't manipulate the market by withdrawing.feedback

Mar 25 2017 - Mar-a-Lago

The American people need to know who has access to the White House if we're going to 'drain the swamp'. So far, all we've seen from the President is murk. His Administration has stonewalled congressional requests for information about his advisors and appointees' conflicts of interest.feedback

Mar 21 2017

Is it any cause of concern to you that your nomination is the focus of a $10 million political spending effort and we do not know who's behind it?feedback

Mar 21 2017

The Second Amendment uses the military term 'arms' and talks about 'militias,' but never mind that when the gun lobby wants something. Find me a founding father who planned a big role for corporations in American elections, or one who would have countenanced the steady strangulation of the civil jury (with the move toward mandatory arbitration) without so much as a mention of the Seventh Amendment.feedback

Mar 18 2017

Mar 08 2017 - Trump Tower

We would take any abuse of wiretapping authorities for political purposes very seriously.
