I’ve worked on 3 impeachments in my life:
-Nixon resigned in disgrace
-Clinton apologized to the nation & repented
-Trump says his behavior was “perfect,” keeps trying to cheat our elections, & says he has a right to abuse his power
That’s why we must #DefendOurDemocracy

Executive privilege cannot be used to prevent a witness who is willing to testify from appearing, and certainly not one who no longer works in government. It’s not a gag order. And witnesses testify on national security all the time.
Bolton has a right to testify if he wants to. twitter.com/kylegriffin1/s…..

Democracy in #HongKong is under threat by the Chinese government.
Today, the House of Representatives stands w/ #HongKongers by reaffirming U.S. commitment to their rights & suspending crowd control equipment sales to the police who are brutally targeting peaceful protesters. https://t.co/vNw7SlJsWn

Last month, @HouseDemocrats voted in support of democracy in #HongKong. Today, the legislation passed both chambers of Congress.
The rights of #HongKongers are being violently repressed. This cannot be ignored. Anyone who cares about human rights should #StandWithHongKong twitter.com/RepZoeLofgren/…..

The House passed @RepKenBuck’s and my bipartisan bill to make our visa system fairer for skilled immigrants legally working in the US. #HR1044 has 200+ Dem and 100+ GOP cosponsors. If @POTUS is serious about merit-based legal immigration, he should help usher this bill into law. https://t.co/exFT9W9BhZ

Simply acknowledging #HumanRightsDay today isn’t enough.
China is undermining freedoms for #HongKongers + others. Saudi Arabia killed a US journalist w/impunity. Our Border Patrol has let children die in custody.
Rights are under threat around the globe. We cannot be silent. https://t.co/NBNGMpxri3

Though I haven't posted since Wednesday's horrific riot, I have been organizing an investigation to hold the perpetrators accountable & I have signed on to a privileged resolution for impeachment. Trump incited this & he's a threat to the security of our country.

Per-country visa caps hurt the American economy—preventing U.S. employers from staying competitive—& hurt families.
I've introduced the bipartisan EAGLE Act w/@RepJohnCurtis to move toward a better system.

This week, as we honor the U.S. Capitol Police officers who made tremendous sacrifices on January 6, 2021, let’s remember that they did not *just* protect Members of Congress & the Vice President, but they also protected our democracy.

America’s elections are at the very core of our democracy. We must do all we can to ensure they truly represent the will of the people. Proud to know we’ve taken important steps in protecting our national security with passing the #SAFEAct last week. https://t.co/IhZO9NKFn0

Yesterday the Senate passed an amended version of the Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act.
While I recognize the sincerity of all Members struggling to find solutions, unfortunately the provisions sent to the House by the Senate most likely make matters worse, not better.

I urge my colleagues to vote to refer Mark Meadows to the DOJ for contempt of Congress.
No one is above the law.

Trump’s campaign shared internal polling data with a Russian operative & the Russians then used Facebook’s geographic targeting features to hit Americans in specific locations with political ads.
⤴️ This info sharing should be illegal.
It would be with my #SHIELDACT. https://t.co/za1oOSpxh4

There is no basis in law for the President’s claim that his aides don’t have to testify before Congress. @HouseJudiciary will hear Mr. McGahn’s testimony, even if we need a court order to enforce our subpoena. https://t.co/iUatzbdJgy

On the anniversary of Jan. 6, I'm thinking about the oath I swore to “defend the Constitution of the U.S. against all enemies, foreign & domestic.”
Every Member of Congress should affirm that oath today by committing to uphold the truth & prevent future coup attempts. https://t.co/vW4zxuxOCz

Tonight I voted to refer Steve Bannon to the DOJ for prosecution for contempt of Congress for defying the @January6thCmte’s lawful subpoena.
The American people deserve the truth, not obstruction. https://t.co/9R4NSmDkTT
