Date Title
Sept. 20, 2018 Tweet - "1 year since Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico & US Virgin Islands, we remember those we lost--to the storm & the inadequate, disorganized federal response. The recovery is far from over. We must ensure the billions Congress passed are used well & quickly to rebuild stronger."
Sept. 19, 2018 Tweet - "I strongly support Dr. Ford's call for an FBI investigation before a hearing is held. An immediate FBI investigation is not only consistent with precedent, it is also quite clearly the right thing to do."
Sept. 19, 2018 Gillibrand, Schumer Announce that Legislation to Begin Process of Creating National Park Service Site at Fort Ontario Passes Senate and Now Heads to President's Desk for Final Signature
Sept. 19, 2018 Tweet - "Dr Ford reasonably requested FBI bkgd check before she testifies so all the facts come out instead of just 2 conflicting stories w/o a resolution.

Sept. 18, 2018 Tweet - "Chairman Grassley's announced hearing on Judge Kavanaugh is a small step: It has to be done right. It can't be rushed. There must be witnesses.

Sept. 17, 2018 Tweet - "Instead of having the FBI investigate these serious allegations as part of the standard background investigation process, the White House has intentionally chosen to bury its head in the sand and make weak excuses."
Sept. 17, 2018 Tweet - "I believe Professor Ford. If the FBI conducts a thorough investigation and the American people hear from her and Judge Kavanaugh, I think a majority of senators will find her credible. Thanks to @theview for having me on today to have this very important discussion."
Sept. 16, 2018 Tweet - "Senate Republicans ran a transparently partisan confirmation process and then immediately insinuated Prof Ford is being untruthful.

Sept. 16, 2018 Tweet - "Re: WaPo report on Judge Kavanaugh, Sen Grassley must postpone vote until, at a very minimum, these serious & credible allegations are thoroughly investigated.

Sept. 5, 2018 Tweet - "One year ago today, the Trump admin unilaterally rescinded the #DACA program -- leaving hundreds of thousands of Dreamers uncertain about their futures. That's 365 days too many. It's time these immigrant youth get the permanent solution they so rightly deserve. #HereToStay"
Sept. 5, 2018 Request for Authority for Committee to Meet
Sept. 5, 2018 Tweet - "It's no wonder that @realDonaldTrump picked Brett Kavanaugh to sit on a potential "jury" in the Mueller probe. Kavanaugh believes sitting presidents should not be investigated or held accountable like other citizens. Judge Kavanaugh thinks presidents are above the law."
Sept. 5, 2018 Tweet - "Republicans are trying to jam through, with as little scrutiny as possible, a lifetime appointment to the nation's highest court, with the power to affect the lives of Americans for a generation. We will not consent to business as usual today on the Senate floor."

Sept. 3, 2018 Tweet - "Earlier this year, I introduced a new bill, the "Workers' Freedom to Negotiate Act" to reform our broken labor laws & help the very workers we celebrate on #LaborDay to earn better wages. This is especially important given the Trump Admin & GOP assault on worker rights & safety."
Sept. 3, 2018 Tweet - "President Trump's rolling back much-needed reforms that keep workers safe, freezing pay for federal workers, or limiting the power of public sector unions will do nothing to help the working people in this country and instead only benefit the special interests and wealthiest."
Sept. 1, 2018 Tweet - "We're witnessing a Friday night document massacre. President Trump's decision to step in at the last moment and hide 100k pages of Judge Kavanaugh's records from the American public is not only unprecedented in the history of SCOTUS noms, it has all the makings of a cover up."
Aug. 31, 2018 Tweet - ""Knowledge is objectively better than ignorance. And in modern America, knowing who actually benefits from economic growth is really, truly important." Read @paulkrugman on my bill w @MartinHeinrich to inform us on how to better address income inequality"

Aug. 28, 2018 Tweet - "When we hear that GDP is rising and the economy is booming, there's an assumption that all Americans are reaping the benefits equally. The reality is that real wages for middle-class workers remain flat and income inequality continues to worsen."
