Fun Fact

That's a 78% increase in the number of heads of state and national governments on Twitter from 2011. Which means Twitter is taking over the world. And we're ok with that.

Quoted @Yamiche

President Biden at G7: “The United States, I’ve said before, we’re back … The U.S. is back.” When a reporter asked President Biden if allies think “America is back,”Biden said to ask French President Macron. Macron responded, “Definitely. Definitely.”

Thank you @POTUS for your leadership. America is stronger when we work with our allies instead of against them. https://t.co/8nsTxdJAGb

Good morning. It’s a great day to subpoena Bill Barr, Rod Rosenstein and Jeff Sessions.

Today would also be a great day for the Garland DOJ to recognize the validity of congressional subpoenas, which DOJ continues to dispute when applied to senior executive branch officials. https://t.co/RyNqWyte7G

Dear @RepBoebert: Thanks for asking! I voted and pushed for the #AmericanRescuePlan, which provided stimulus checks to American families and aid to farmers. Next week my bill to help veterans, which recently passed the Senate, will be on the House floor. What about you? https://t.co/pL3L3UtRJX

The continuing false claims of a stolen election have led to violent/death threats, intimidation, and claims of prison time coming for elections workers. They keep coming. Real leaders need to take steps to stop it. So far they haven't. https://t.co/L5gL5nrj4u

Dear @GOPLeader: I’m requesting you to please just say one simple, truthful sentence: the election was not stolen. Lives are at stake. https://t.co/sJFSxT6PCi

The number of cyberattacks investigated by @FBI has grown exponentially in the last year & it's going to get worse. Joined a @HouseJudiciary hearing w/ FBI Director Wray to encourage federal investment in cyber education, clarify motivations behind the Jan. 6 attack, & more. https://t.co/je2DU6nbJs

And now Microsoft too: New: Microsoft received a subpoena in 2017 related to a congressional staffer's personal email account, the company said Friday evening. As with Apple, Microsoft was subject to a gag order that was in effect for more than two years.

Scientific studies show synthetic chemicals called phthalates damaging children's brain development & disproportionately affecting the health of minority women. The presence of these toxic chemicals in food & cosmetics should be banned by @US_FDA. Our letter w/ @RepKatiePorter ⬇️ https://t.co/4CpHkguttx

It's official. DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz:   The DOJ Office of the Inspector General is initiating a review of DOJ's use of subpoenas and other legal authorities to obtain communication records of Members of Congress and affiliated persons.

This is a welcome step. I also note that the DOJ Inspector General has no jurisdiction over prior employees like Barr and Sessions. This is why we need the @HouseJudiciary Committee to do our own investigation and hold hearings on this gross abuse of presidential power by DOJ. https://t.co/RFjFdeb7of

Quoted @JoeNeguse

An OIG investigation is an important step. But it cannot be a substitute for congressional oversight. The House Judiciary Committee should subpoena Jeff Sessions & Bill Barr. Today. https://t.co/lALDu0PLzw

I agree with Rep @JoeNeguse. The @HouseJudiciary Committee should invite Barr, Sessions and others involved in this scandal to testify. If they refuse, we need to subpoena them. This needs to be a public process with public hearings to show we have a Separation of Powers. https://t.co/zawg6hwphc

Quoted @mkraju

Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco has asked the Justice Department’s inspector general to investigate the department’s handling of a leak investigation that included a subpoena to collect metadata of lawmakers, staff and some family members, @evanperez reports

The DOJ was aware of this scandal for years, including this year. Why is @TheJusticeDept asking for an Inspector General investigation now? Because of the free press. But this shouldn’t be how the Garland DOJ works. Your job is not to maximize presidential power. Do better. https://t.co/Kf778Gu1wt

NEW: @RepAdamSchiff's office has repeatedly asked DOJ for info on the subpoenaing of Dems' metadata, including what the legal basis is and what prompted the move. Incredibly, DOJ has refused to answer, a committee official tells me. New reporting here: https://t.co/7dzwsjzbNe

Attorneys General Sessions, Barr & Garland didn’t take an oath to the President or the Office of the President. They took an oath to the Constitution. Their mission is to respect the Constitution, not maximize presidential power. They must testify before Congress on this scandal. https://t.co/AnUn9WnbAU

The @StateDept's assignment restrictions policy is discriminatory, affects recruiting and retention, and doesn't make sense in the 21st century. Joined a @HouseForeign hearing to urge @SecBlinken to consider eliminating the practice entirely. ⬇️ https://t.co/wFqxRUecBT

Quoted @harrylitman

If no legal predicate for investigation, then it's Nixon*Hoover on steroids. So assume there is a lawful predicate. Now questions become 1) Was WH in the loop, or, worse, in the driver's seat; & 2) Who, and with what ostensible justification, decided to target eg family members?

Metadata can reveal who you contacted and who contacted you. Hypothetically let’s say DOJ found a family member was calling Alcoholics Anonymous, or a suicide prevention hotline or a porn site. The Trump DOJ could then use that info as leverage against the Member of Congress. https://t.co/GVGzqIJqvg

Chairman Schiff: “The Attorney General has an obligation to clean house. … Make sure that there’s accountability for those that were engaged in political and partisan investigations.” Also tonight, Rep.

If DOJ can secretly wield its power against Members of Congress investigating the Administration, that subverts the Separation of Powers. It causes a chilling effect on Members to speak against or investigate the executive branch. DOJ personnel involved in this need to resign. https://t.co/AUJn0H53Ns

Bill Barr “moved a trusted prosecutor from New Jersey with little relevant experience to the main Justice Department to work on the Schiff-related case.” “Mr. Benvenuto [is] still at the Justice Department.” https://t.co/xklPWpCH6N

Bill Barr and Osmar Benvenuto should be invited to testify before Congress about the DOJ’s secret seizure of metadata and attempts to get private data on Democratic Members of Congress. If they refuse, they should be subpoenaed. https://t.co/CBNPU5VJWz

NEW: In hunting for people who leaked Russia investigation intel to reporters, DOJ subpoenaed Apple for data belonging to Adam Schiff, another House Intel Committee Democrat, aides and family members. One was a minor. w. @npfandos @nytmike @adamgoldmanNYT https://t.co/6jWHq34kUB

The former Administration sought to destroy the Separation of Powers by ignoring Congressional subpoenas and violating congressional laws. Secretly getting metadata on Members of Congress is another outrageous act. Anyone involved in this who is still at DOJ needs to resign. https://t.co/LuAZOvVV11
