Too many red flags to ignore: The IG should investigate any potential favoritism or conflicts of interest. Congress must also pass the CORE Act—protecting IG independence & strengthening oversight. https://t.co/E5Z8kLUDrz

Huge congrats to @JoyAnnReid. I always enjoy our conversations—even when she asks the tough questions—& am looking forward to seeing her sharp analysis in her new show “The ReidOut” on @MSNBC. https://t.co/mBIhX6to6g

These decisions affirm the fundamental principle that no person—& no president—is above the law. President Trump’s arguments seeking blanket immunity from oversight were rightly recognized for what they are: absurd & unlawful. https://t.co/J8yq8nytdL

Sen. Richard Blumenthal calls on college conferences to follow Ivy League in not having sports this fall https://t.co/7ScXa6Csa6 via @usatoday

This is the right call. Other conferences must follow suit. College athletes should be the priority, not school profits. https://t.co/t0DZKrflwU

COVID-19 testing is crucial to combatting this pandemic. The mobile testing in Bloomfield by @The_Charter_Oak & @THOfNewEngland is helping to ensure all our communities—especially communities of color—have access to key COVID-19 information.

Hundreds of nursing home staff have contracted COVID-19 & almost 70% of COVID-19 related deaths in CT were nursing home residents. I'll continue to fight for the Nursing Home COVID-19 Protection & Prevention Act to fund testing & PPE—helping keep staff, patients, & families safe. https://t.co/BA0jgXQHpZ

Alexander Vindman is a patriot who bravely spoke truth to power. He’s a hero. Thank you for your historic service, Lt. Col. Vindman. https://t.co/kN0eTo4Aar

.@PepsiCo & @CocaCola claim to care about the environment, but don't champion science-based climate policy. Instead they are leaders in @USChamber, a perpetrator of anti-climate initiatives. These companies can't just talk the talk, they need to walk the walk & #ChangetheChamber.

Worse yet, this decision opens the floodgates to broader discrimination against vulnerable employees & students under the guise of ‘religious freedom.’ We must fight back against this administration’s appalling attacks against people’s reproductive health.

Quoted @AP

BREAKING: Supreme Court sides with Trump effort to let more employers out of health care law’s no-cost birth control requirement. https://t.co/Z5tfIFdaGP

This ruling is a betrayal of women’s healthcare & rights. This decision, sanctioning the Trump admin’s hateful agenda, is deeply disappointing & dangerous. Instead of upholding the ACA’s essential reproductive health protections, it hands employers/universities unbridled control. https://t.co/ygETnCQ9HV

Children ages 1-4 have the highest rates of drowning—with most accidents occurring in their own backyard. The single most important thing a parent can do is supervise. Also, ensure everyone in the family learns to swim & install barriers around home pools or hot tubs.

As summer heats up & people spend more time in the pool, I joined Stew & Chase Leonard, who faced unimaginable personal tragedy in the drowning death of their son/brother Stewie, to remind parents & guardians to take all precautions to keep kids safe while swimming. https://t.co/2rBZlX4T1w

The Trump administration has notified Congress that it is formally withdrawing the United States from the World Health Organization amid the coronavirus pandemic, multiple officials tell CNN https://t.co/oQMLEH3bhk

Turning our backs on international collaboration to combat this COVID-19 crisis is shortsighted & misguided. Could the WHO have done better to inform the world about the dangers of this virus?—Yes. Should America forgo a united approach to dealing with this disease?—No way. https://t.co/YYDDzoawJD

DOJ has failed to fully implement the Death in Custody Reporting Act so we don’t even know how many people are killed by law enforcement each year. Data won’t end police brutality, but it can—& will—inform real reforms. That’s why we're demanding AG Barr enforce this legislation. https://t.co/2dYArg4bAb
