I grew up a hunter and served as an Army Ranger.
I didn’t take my deer hunting rifle to Afghanistan, nor did I take my assault rifle deer hunting.
Don’t be fooled by the gun lobby. The type of gun matters.
Weapons of war have no place in our communities.
New rule: If you brought us to this point by peddling The Big Lie, you don’t get to preach about “healing” and “unity.”
Healing and unity always require truth and accountability.
Some of my Republican colleagues are afraid of the consequences of an impeachment vote.
This congress sends our young men & women to war.
Not asking my colleagues to storm the beaches of Normandy, only to show a fraction of the courage we ask of our troops.
It’s time to lead.
Let me be clear: there's no serious comparison between voting laws in Colorado and Georgia.
Colorado is a vote-by-mail state — we send every registered voter a ballot. We also have same day voter registration.
Oh, and you can hand out water in line.
My heart is breaking as I walk Capitol Hill.
I served in Iraq and Afghanistan so we could enjoy peace at home.
It’s hard to see the pantheon of our democracy fortified like the war zones I used to know.
I led over 100 combat missions in Iraq & Afghanistan. Combat exposure is a trauma; it affects everyone differently. If you were a Member, staff, or officer in the Capitol Wed, don't suppress post-traumatic feelings & fears. Seek help. I'm available to anyone who wants to talk.
Wait a minute.
A few weeks ago you were 1 of only 16 members of Congress who voted against my bill to expand and speed up the visa program to evacuate and save our Afghan partners. twitter.com/laurenboebert/…..
We have stopped the coup attempt and will be returning to the Capitol today to finish the business of the people. We will never back down, we will return.
Senators who want to “move on” from the January 6 attack without accountability should never again preach about:
-law and order
-supporting law enforcement
To be clear, it doesn’t matter what any senator says in a post-impeachment speech.
The only thing that mattered today was how they voted.
Just got back to Colorado and poured a glass of whiskey.
I may actually sleep tonight knowing there are competent and rationale people in the White House.
Leadership matters. And so does good whiskey.
Let us be clear about what happened today. @realDonaldTrump threatened to send the military to “dominate” protestors, his advisors referred to our streets as the “battlespace,” and he ordered the military to use force on peaceful demonstrators so he could stage a photo op.
My heart has broken. Like most vets, I left part of me in AFG. Later we’ll debate the failures of last 20 yrs, but today our mission is clear: hold the airport as long as possible and get ALL U.S. citizens and as many Afghan partners out as we can. We will debate the rest later

I just signed on as a cosponsor of the articles of impeachment introduced by @RepCicilline. Our country and the world needs to see that the attack on January 6 has consequences.
I’m done with moments of silence.
Not doing it anymore.
I’m here for serious policy convos on this national disgrace.
But I’m not gonna be silent.
I’m currently in lockdown in the House chamber as the President of the United States incites his supporters to violence and to storm the Capitol. This is the outcome of Trump’s presidency.
I didn’t take an assault weapon with me to deer hunt and I didn’t take a deer hunting rifle with me to Iraq and Afghanistan. It’s simple, weapons of war have no place in our communities. https://t.co/bmlA27nqeH
As a combat veteran, I can tell you: I would never want to be armed with only a pistol against an assailant with an AR-15.
We can’t just arm our teachers. We need to pass common sense policies like an assault weapons ban to stop these attacks.
The lack of discipline in Congress is truly astounding.
If an embattled wartime leader asks you to keep quiet about a meeting, you better keep quiet about the meeting.
I’m not saying a damn thing. Lives are at stake.

If we don't hold Trump accountable now, we're signaling to future presidents that they too can get away with inciting a violent insurrection, undermining our democracy, and abusing the power of the executive office.
For the sake of our democracy, Trump must be held accountable.
Reputation rehab tours are underway.
Be wary. Don’t forget.
Those who turned their backs on democracy under Trump will do it again if given the chance.
We have known for a long time that Donald Trump is violent and unstable. After what happened yesterday, 13 days is too long.
He needs to be removed from office -- whether it be invoking the 25th Amendment or impeachment. We must protect our democracy.

Let’s call this what it is - a political stunt.
I never stacked guns on a bookshelf when at war, let alone on a zoom in my living room.
Unless you’re on patrol in Afghanistan, this is the right way to store a gun. twitter.com/owillis/status….. https://t.co/D69VpETaB5
