Representing the 4th District of Minnesota

Press Releases

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.
May 17, 2017 Press Release
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.
May 16, 2017 Press Release
In addition to empowering a special prosecutor and independent commission to investigate Trump, his associates, and their close ties to Russia, Congress should now issue subpoenas and conduct hearings into President Trump and his White House’s interference with the FBI's ongoing investigation.
May 15, 2017 Press Release
President Donald Trump’s reckless disclosure of state secrets to senior Russian officials is profoundly disturbing. Leaking sensitive information provided by an American ally to the Russian Foreign Minister is either grossly incompetent or extremely sinister, or both.
May 10, 2017 Press Release
My Democratic colleagues and I are ready to put both a special prosecutor and an independent commission in place. The only thing standing in the way of transparency and accountability are House and Senate Republicans who continue to put party over country and are complicit in hiding the truth from the American people.
May 9, 2017 Press Release
President Donald Trump’s unprecedented decision to fire FBI Director James Comey in the middle of an investigation of President Trump and his associates is a transparent attempt to obstruct justice. No one appointed by President Trump can now be trusted to either impartially investigate him and his associates or, if necessary, hold them accountable.
May 9, 2017 Press Release
Congresswoman McCollum today announced the winners of the 2017 Congressional Art Competition. Lindsey Noyed of Concordia Academy in Roseville took first place for her artwork entitled "Evermore and Evermore."
May 9, 2017 Press Release
Congresswoman McCollum is joining House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi on a bipartisan Congressional delegation this week to India, Nepal, Germany and Belgium, including a meeting with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.

May 4, 2017 Press Release
The passage of Trumpcare is a reflection of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans’ values: they will abandon the sick and the vulnerable to give tax breaks to billionaires and big corporations.

Every family, senior, and person with a disability in Minnesota will have their guaranteed benefits, coverage, and protections stripped away by this dangerous and cruel House Republican bill.
