What happened at the U.S. Capitol yesterday was an insurrection against the United States, incited by President Trump.
This president must not hold office one day longer.
We now have two members of the Senate Judiciary Committee who have tested positive for COVID, and there may be more. I wish my colleagues well.
It is irresponsible and dangerous to move forward with a hearing, and there is absolutely no good reason to do so.
The time has come to decriminalize marijuana in this country.
The American people should have a voice in the selection of their next Supreme Court Justice. Therefore, this vacancy should not be filled until we have a new president.
THREAD: It’s official. Today, I am formally announcing my plan to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level. It’s time we allow states, once and for all, to have the power to decide what works best for them.
I am forcing a vote to adjourn the Senate until after the November election.
We are not going to have business as usual here in the Senate while the Republicans try to use an illegitimate process to jam through a Supreme Court nominee.
I just asked for the Senate to pass a resolution to make public the full Mueller report.
This same resolution passed the House 420-0.
But @SenateMajLdr McConnell just objected.
What are they trying to hide?
President Trump is inciting violence while screaming LAW & ORDER. Enough.
In my long career in politics, I have not seen a more regressive piece of legislation, so devoid of a rationale, so ill-suited for the condition of the country, so removed from the reality of what the American people need.
Enough with the memes. Just quit hurting innocent people and re-open the government. twitter.com/realDonaldTrum…..
Republicans are saying they are being barred from the “secret” hearings.
But here’s a list of every Republican who is allowed into the hearings: https://t.co/YsYp4owpKt
Happily talk re: my contact w Mr. Putin & his associates, took place in '03 in full view of press & public under oath. Would you &your team? twitter.com/realdonaldtrum…..
This will be called the #TrumpShutdown. There is no one who deserves the blame for the position we find ourselves in more than President Trump. https://t.co/WE3SH9TpRU
New York, New York. If you can make it there, you can make it anywhere... Trump can’t.
Release the emails.
Let your men testify under oath.
What are you afraid of?
GREAT meeting today with the best staff in the history of the world!!! https://t.co/ocE1xhEAac
You're going to want to make sure your friends see this:
Senators Booker, Coons, and Flake just asked for the Senate's unanimous consent to pass a bill protecting the Mueller investigation from President Trump.
But they didn’t get it.
Because @SenateMajLdr McConnell objected.
Dear Senate Republicans:
President Trump didn’t learn any “lessons” when you excused his abuse of power.
And now you are responsible for every new abuse he commits.
The quickest and most effective way—it can be done today—to remove this president from office would be for the Vice President to immediately invoke the 25th amendment.
If the Vice President and the Cabinet refuse to stand up, Congress must reconvene to impeach President Trump.
The House will pass a bill to give Americans $2,000 checks. Then I will move to pass it in the Senate.
No Democrats will object.
Will Senate Republicans?
