April 17, 2019 Tweet - "The American people deserve the truth. They don't need any more pre-damage control or spin from @realDonaldTrump's hand-picked attorney general, William Barr. Mr. Barr is acting more like a Trump campaign spokesman than an independent agent of the law."
April 17, 2019 Tweet - "The process is poisoned before the report is even released. Barr shouldn't be spinning the report at all, but it's doubly outrageous he's doing it before America is given a chance to read it. Barr doesn't want Americans to make up their own mind. What is he so afraid of?"

April 14, 2019 Tweet - "How can you say you're Puerto Rico's voice in the Senate while supporting a disaster bill that strips needed help from the island and is opposed by PR's Governor?
