This budget that you've proposed doesn't uphold your agency's mission. We ought to be doubling down on our investment to protect our environment for the sake of our children and grandchildren.

We served with the attorney general in the Senate and on the Judiciary Committee for many years. We know he would not tolerate dishonesty if he were in our shoes.

The American people have a right to know, for the sake of our national security and sovereignty, whether and to what extent Russia interfered in the 2016 Presidential election.

No one should accept President Trump's absurd justification that he is now concerned that FBI Director Comey treated Secretary Clinton unfairly.

Apr 03 2017

I respect this institution as much as anyone; I never expected to be here long enough to become the dean of the Senate, but I have. And for those 42 years, I've devoted myself to the good the Senate can accomplish. But I cannot vote solely to protect an institution. I fear that the Senate I would be defending no longer exists.feedback

Apr 03 2017 - SCOTUS

On areas of surveillance and torture, what I've seen so far, his views are a lot different than mine. When Judge Gorsuch was working for the administration, at least based on the initial things I've looked at, he appears to be a cheerleader for President Bush's views on executive powers.feedback

Mar 02 2017

Several of the President-Elect's nominees or senior advisers have Russian ties. Have you been in contact with anyone connected to any part of the Russian government about the 2016 election, either before or after election day?feedback
