May 23, 2017 Press Release
President Trump’s 2018 budget is a cruel and reckless plan that benefits billionaires, punishes the vulnerable, and abandons working families and small businesses. I strongly oppose this budget and will do everything I can to prevent its callous policies from becoming law.
May 17, 2017 Press Release
I commend the appointment of a special counsel to lead the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and Russian ties to President Donald Trump and his associates. This appointment proves that the investigation is extremely serious.
The discharge petition Congresswoman McCollum signed today would force a House vote on the Protecting Our Democracy Act (H.R. 356), bipartisan legislation that establishes an outside, independent commission to investigate the Trump-Russia scandal. Thus far, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) has refused to schedule a vote on the bipartisan bill and House Republicans have voted seven times to block its consideration in the House.
