The American people want, and deserve, the truth.
I believe the House must pursue a formal impeachment inquiry. https://t.co/9mYTpYEKWl
Tell me, @realDonaldTrump, what's rodent #infested again? nydailynews.com/news/politics/…..
Today I launched an investigation into President Trump’s firing of State Department Inspector General Steve Linick. @SenatorMenendez and I requested that administration officials preserve all records related to the firing & turn info over to the committees by Friday, May 22. https://t.co/vUtHhgjERG
I've learned there may be another reason for IG Linick’s firing. His office was investigating—at my request—Trump’s phony emergency declaration so he could send Saudi Arabia weapons. We don’t have the full picture yet, but it’s troubling that Sec Pompeo wanted Linick pushed out. twitter.com/RepEliotEngel/…..
Absolutely horrible to see this blatant Islamophobic smear. Bigotry and dog-whistles of all kind are unacceptable. Whether its anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, or any kind of hatred, we must call it out when we see it. nbcnews.com/politics/polit…..
I have learned that the Office of the Inspector General had opened an investigation into Secretary Pompeo. Mr. Linick’s firing amid such a probe strongly suggests that this is an unlawful act of retaliation. twitter.com/HouseForeign/s…..
The people of #HongKong should be the ones choosing their elected officials, NOT the CCP. China’s erosion of the “1 country-2 systems” framework must not go unchallenged.
I call on @senatemajldr to vote on the bipartisan #HKHRDA the House passed last month. twitter.com/nytimes/status…..
.@realDonaldTrump walked away from America’s Kurdish allies in Syria. The Congress will not make the same mistake. https://t.co/pJ9MZPGcTT
At a time when the American public stands with the people of #HongKong, the @NBA, @ESPN, @Apple and others should strive to model the values of freedom of speech and association.
U.S. institutions should play an important role in speaking up for U.S. values. twitter.com/washingtonpost…..
The American people don't want war with Iran, and neither do I.
We need to send a clear message to the White House: don’t plunge this country into an ill-conceived war against Iran.
As chair of @HouseForeign, I'll do everything I can to prevent one. #NoWarWithIran https://t.co/uNo6kx0cn7
Chairman @RepAdamSchiff has acted with integrity and fairness during the #ImpeachmentInquiry.
That’s why my GOP colleagues want to attack him.
They’ll do anything to protect the President and distract from our efforts to expose the truth.
It won’t work. #TruthExposed
A gross, rambling speech that is dripping with xenophobia and falsehoods.
Declaring a national emergency at the border is a farce. It’s the act of a desperate man who can’t deliver on a ludicrous campaign promise.
We’ll see him in court. twitter.com/politicalwire/…..
This is not a “win” for @HouseDemocrats.
It’s a win for the American people and the rule of law.
We have a Constitutional RIGHT to conduct oversight and we are ENTITLED to these documents.
We will not be kept from performing our duty. twitter.com/CNN/status/118…..
Today as we intro the #DayOfSilence Res. we not only stand w/#LGBTQ students to call attention to the widespread harassment they face in school, we also stand with our brave #transgender servicemembers who proudly serve our country.
You are not alone in this fight. #FightTheBan
I’ve been investigating acts of retaliation at the @StateDept for nearly two years.
The law protects whistleblowers and, as we look into the IG’s firing, I will work tirelessly to ensure that no one who comes forward is bullied or silenced. twitter.com/RepEliotEngel/…..
The Inspector General Act requires @realdonaldtrump to give Congress written reasons for firing an IG 30 days before doing so. He can’t give secret “justifications” just to his allies. @SenatorMenendez and I will get the truth. twitter.com/mkraju/status/…..
The Framers of the Constitution were specific when they wrote the Emoluments Clause.
That means #G7Doral violates the Constitution. https://t.co/T7HKfWJWSc
I somehow doubt the president would say “your Taoiseach” to a roomful of Irish-Americans. twitter.com/atrupar/status…..
Who’s the boss when it comes to passing legislation that lowers the cost of prescription drugs, @realDonaldTrump?
I only ask because your Health & Human Services Sec. told me today at @EnergyCommerce he doesn’t think it’s you. #HR3 https://t.co/kfi2ZOmZDX
We do nothing but pass #HR1 election & ethics reform.
Do nothing but pass #HR9 on #climatechange.
Do nothing but fight for affordable healthcare.
Do nothing but pass gun background checks.
You want real “do-nothing”? Go see #MoscowMitch. twitter.com/thehill/status…..
President Trump’s unprecedented removal of Inspector General Linick is only his latest sacking of an inspector general, our government’s key independent watchdogs, from a federal agency.
A good summation of how Trump has abused the office of the President and the Constitution’s Emoluments Clause from @WashingtonPost.
It’s easy to see how foreign powers could attempt to curry favor with a President whose main concern is enriching himself. wapo.st/2Buxq30.. https://t.co/gFisYtd4a7
“A phony emergency — an emergency designed to make yet another end run around Congress, to undermine the separation of powers, to trample on this body’s constitutional duties,” said Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) "I'm sick and tired of it." politi.co/2JTTNm6..
