I do have ability to unilaterally issue subpoena if need be hopefully if memo exists they will turn it over voluntarily & swiftly.feedback

May 17 2017 - Russia

I think the president ought to now back off and let the justice system proceed as it proceeds in all cases. I think tweeting about the process of the investigation is not helpful and again, I think if he has done nothing wrong there will be no problem.feedback

May 16 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

If the memo exists, I need to see it and I need to see it right away. We are drafting the necessary paperwork to get the memo so we will find out in a hurry if it's out there.feedback

May 16 2017 - Trump Presidency

This is an explosive allegation and it appears like a textbook case of criminal obstruction of justice. We need to hear testimony immediately from Director Comey - in public ... We also obviously need to get Director Comey's memos immediately, as well as all associated records, including any audio tapes, and notes, if they exist.feedback

Apr 25 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

That money needs to be recovered. There was nothing in the data to show that Gen. Flynn complied with the law.feedback

Apr 25 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

General Flynn had a duty and an obligation to seek and obtain permission to receive money from foreign governments. It does not appear to us that that was ever sought, nor did he ever get that permission. If that money was received by General Flynn, and we believe that it was, that money needs to be recovered.feedback

Apr 21 2017

I might depart early. It's not tomorrow, it's not next week. If it is, it's going to be in the months to come.feedback

Apr 19 2017 - American politics

I have long advocated public service should be for a limited time and not a lifetime or full career. After more than 1,500 nights away from my home, it is time.feedback

Apr 19 2017

For those that would speculate otherwise, let me be clear that I have no ulterior motives. I am healthy. I am confident I would continue to be re-elected by large margins.

Apr 19 2017

Apr 19 2017

It's a tough decision. I love serving in Congress, but I love my family more. I really meant it when I said I was going to get in, serve and get out. I'm trying to leave the door open for possibilities down the road.feedback

Apr 19 2017 - IPhone

The president has 100,000 people at the Department of Justice, and if he wants to have an investigation, have at it. Definitely, maybe. Americans have choices, and they've got to make a choice. And so maybe rather than getting that new iPhone that they just love and they want to go spend hundreds of dollars on that, maybe they should invest in their own health care.feedback

Apr 19 2017 - Republican Party

After long consultation with my family and prayerful consideration, I have decided I will not be a candidate for any office in 2018. I have long advocated public service should be for a limited time and not a lifetime or full career. Many of you have heard me advocate, Get in, serve, and get out.' After more than 1,500 nights away from my home, it is time. I may run again for public office, but not in 2018. I'm not going to be here forever. I would take a serious, serious look at running for governor. I want to go as hard and fast as I can in the House and then go home.feedback

Mar 31 2017

I knew I wasn't going to be here 20 years, and I really would like to be a chairman and be able to maximize my voice and my influence. And this is one of those non-'A' committees that would allow a younger person like myself to have a shot.feedback

Mar 31 2017

I think the people who voted for Donald Trump went into it with eyes wide open. Everybody knew he was rich, everybody knew he had lots of different entanglements … These other little intrigues about a wealthy family making money is a bit of a sideshow.feedback

Mar 31 2017 - Espionage

I'm out. I can no longer in good conscience endorse this person for president. Remember, the federal government is 2-plus million people. We can't investigate everything all the time. It's not breaking news that Russia has engaged in espionage against our government, our elections, or corporate America.feedback

Mar 08 2017

What would it look like if the Department of Agriculture was maybe based in Oklahoma? What if we had a Department of the Interior that was based in Utah or Colorado? What if the Department of Transportation was based in Los Angeles, for instance?feedback

Mar 06 2017

Mar 06 2017

That's about as damning as it gets. So wait a second. You don't have – you just made this up? It's not in writing? Give me a specific name. That's a big office, there's lots of attorneys, tell me the attorneys that are telling you not to provide this information to Congress, and tell me the names of the attorneys that are telling you not to provide this to the OSC. I want names.feedback

Mar 06 2017 - Wiretapping

Let's remember what they did with James Rosen. Let's remember that the IRS did target Americans based on their political beliefs.

Feb 14 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

That situation has taken care of itself – (the) Intel committee has looked at hacking issue previously.feedback

Feb 14 2017

Moving forward, I encourage President Trump to appoint a director from outside the agency. A fresh set of eyes and new perspective is needed to restore the prestige and status expected of such an elite agency.feedback

Feb 14 2017

"I think that situation has taken care of itself. I know that the Intel committee is looking into the hacking issue,". "I think he did the right thing stepping down.".feedback

It needs to be dealt with. There's no ifs, ands or buts about it.feedback

Feb 07 2017

I think on the surface it's tougher to do oversight when it's your own party, but you have a job to do. My job is not to be the president's cheerleader, but I do want to fix things. And there are a lot of broken things. And there's always somebody doing something stupid somewhere. I think it's a good message (for Trump) to say 'I'm not going to slow you down. I'm not going to put the brakes on.' . The Democrats can flail and complain and run around with their heads cut off, but the reality is he's exempt from this.feedback

Jan 30 2017 - Refugees

This is beyond explanation. The FBI was handing out immunity agreements like candy. I've lost confidence in this investigation and I question the genuine effort in which it was carried out. Immunity deals should not be a requirement for cooperating with the FBI.feedback

Sep 23 2016

No wonder they couldn't prosecute a case.feedback

Sep 21 2016
