@LindseyGrahamSC: Giving Akayed Ullah a lawyer and putting him directly into the criminal justice system means we lose the ability to gather intelligence from a person who fits the profile of an enemy combatant.

@RepAdamSchiff: By shutting down the congressional investigations when they continue to discover new and important evidence, the White House can exert tremendous pressure to end or curtail Mueller's investigation or cast doubt on it. We cannot let that happen.
@RepAdamSchiff: Beyond our investigation, here's what has me really concerned: The attacks on Mueller, DOJ and FBI this week make it clear they plan to go after Mueller's investigation. Aggressively and soon.
@RepAdamSchiff: The responsibility to conduct a thorough investigation, or to prevent one, ultimately falls on @SpeakerRyan. I'm concerned he's heeding the calls of Bannon and @POTUS to "DO SOMETHING" by closing down the Russia investigation and opening up another investigation of Hilary Clinton.
@RepAdamSchiff: Despite our repeated urging, Majority has declined to issue subpoenas in numerous avenues of the investigation, where there's simply no other way to get the information. Some refusals we've made public, like witnesses hiding behind nonexistent privileges, many others we haven't.
@RepAdamSchiff: Next week, they scheduled critical witness interviews out of state, when we are voting on the tax bill and vital government funding bills and no Members will be able to ask questions, in an effort to squeeze them in before end of year. These witnesses are willing to come to DC.
President Trump asked his Chief of Staff, retired four-star Marine General John Kelly to address Marine One personnel: "Best job I ever had - you've heard me say it before - being a sergeant in the Marines. Second best job, this one."
@RepAdamSchiff: It appears Republicans want to conduct just enough interviews to give the impression of a serious investigation.
@RepAdamSchiff: Yet, Republicans have scheduled no witnesses after next Friday and none in 2017. We have dozens of outstanding witnesses on key aspects of our investigation that they refuse to contact and many document requests they continue to sit on.
@RepAdamSchiff: Since March, our investigation has made important progress. We've interviewed numerous key witnesses behind closed doors, held public hearings, reviewed thousands of documents, identified new leads — all to understand and expose Russia's meddling and protect our democracy.
@RepAdamSchiff: I'm increasingly worried Republicans will shut down the House Intelligence Committee investigation at the end of the month.

Bernie Sanders: He promised to provide health care to "everybody," but he supported legislation that would have thrown up to 32 million Americans off the health care they currently have.
Bernie Sanders: He promised to pass tax reform that would benefit the middle class, but is now supporting legislation that gives 62% of the benefits to the top 1% and would, after 10 years, raise taxes on 83 million middle-class families.
Bernie Sanders: He promised to stand up to the power of corporate interests, but supported the FCC decision to end net neutrality, something Comcast, ATandT and other media conglomerates were begging for.
Bernie Sanders: He promised to lower the cost of prescription drugs but then nominated Alex Azar, a former pharmaceutical industry executive, as head of the Health and Human Services agency.
Bernie Sanders: Our job: Fight back against the reactionary Trump agenda and for a progressive agenda that works for the middle class, not the 1%.
