The Constitution is clear: the President cannot accept gifts or payments from foreign governments. No one is above the law. #EmolumentsClause

BREAKING: President @realDonaldTrump has awarded the massive G-7 Summit of world leaders to himself. A bedrock promise of Trump's presidency -- that he would not use his public power to benefit his private company -- explodes.

President Trump's decision to hold the 2020 G7 Summit at Trump Doral is among the most brazen examples yet of his corruption. This is exactly what the Constitution’s Emoluments Clauses were intended to prevent. Read my full statement:

Such sad news this morning. @RepCummings was my friend and a giant of public service and the U.S. Congress. His presence, passion and moral clarity will be missed and my heart goes out to his family and constituents.

Pregnancy discrimination happens to millions of women. Pregnant workers are often forced on leave when a simple accommodation will keep them on the job. Next week @EdLaborCmte will hold a hearing to discuss my bill, the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act. #PWFA

So goes another DHS head who bore responsibility for Trump’s immoral immigration policies, including family separation and MPP. With no Senate-confirmed leadership left at DHS, the Administration is demonstrating once again its disdain for the rule of law.

It is time we stop building fossil fuel infrastructure, and instead invest in green energy. Read my letter with members of the NYC Congressional Delegation opposing the #WilliamsPipeline:

Last month, I joined @NydiaVelazquez and others to call on National Grid to end the gas moratorium and provide a plan detailing how it will restore service to thousands of customers in Brooklyn, Queens, and Long Island.

Quoted@NydiaVelazquez

Today, I led Members of the New York delegation in writing to National Grid. @RepGregoryMeeks @RepMaxRose @RepYvetteClarke @RepGraceMeng @RepJerryNadler @RepJoseSerrano & I demand NG provides a plan as to how it will restore service for 2,600 customers who are being denied gas.

Good news! @nationalgridus was abusing its customers to force action on the environmentally harmful #WilliamsPipeline. Hopefully this decision sends a message that New Yorkers won't be extorted into building more fossil fuel infrastructure.

Quoted@Bobby4Brooklyn

.@NYGovCuomo stands up to @nationalgridus mendacity by ordering a stop to NG’s self imposed & disingenuous gas moratorium. Now the @NYSDPS & @TishJames must investigate if NG violated their charter w/ NY & lied to their customers. #StopTheWilliamsPipeline #PublicPower

This is excellent news! The Trump Admin’s attempt to circumvent Congress and unlawfully redefine our ‘public charge’ laws in order to deny green cards to lawful, hardworking immigrants has been halted by the court in a win for human rights, basic decency and the rule of law.

Quoted@NewYorkStateAG

BREAKING: We've secured a nationwide preliminary injunction to BLOCK Trump's Public Charge Rule from taking effect. This rule would have had devastating impacts on New Yorkers and our nation, and today’s decision is a critical step in our efforts to uphold the rule of law.

NYCHA residents know their community best and need to have a real voice in determining its future. Public housing is a crisis in this city, and we cannot let our neighbors continue to live in these conditions.

This morning the Supreme Court is hearing three cases to determine whether #LGBTQ workers are protected from discrimination under our nation’s sex non-discrimination laws, a decision that will have major consequences for our nation. #SCOTUS

Quoted@ACLU

For the LGBTQ civil rights movement, this is a big moment. The Supreme Court will hear arguments in three cases in which the Trump administration is urging the court to rule that it’s legal to fire workers for being LGBTQ. Here’s more from @JamesEsseks:

This is the rhetoric you hear from authoritarian dictatorships, not a democracy. Totally consistent with Trump’s other authoritarian tendencies: attacking the courts, undermining the rule of law, refusing transparency, calling the press “enemy of the people”.

Quoted@realDonaldTrump

As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!). They must, with Europe and others, watch over...

Public housing in NYC and across the US in a crisis and it is time for the federal govt to step up. Housing is a human right. Today I joined @NydiaVelazquez in introducing legislation to invest $70 billion in federal funds to save NYCHA and public housing across the country.

Don’t let the President change the subject. He got caught soliciting a foreign leader for help with his campaign at the expense of U.S. national security. Again.

Quoted@realDonaldTrump

Can you imagine if these Do Nothing Democrat Savages, people like Nadler, Schiff, AOC Plus 3, and many more, had a Republican Party who would have done to Obama what the Do Nothings are doing to me. Oh well, maybe next time!

Threatening a whistleblower who raised urgent concerns about our national security is deeply unpatriotic and clearly obstruction of justice.

Quoted@voxdotcom

Trump on US officials who gave information to the Ukraine whistleblower: “You know what we used to do in the old days when we were smart? Right? The spies and treason, we used to handle it a little differently than we do now.”

In 1970, I was in Albany fighting to overturn NY's abortion ban, 4 years before Roe. The group I worked with then was the National Assoc to Repeal Abortion Laws, now known as @NARAL. I am so proud to have fought beside you for 50 years, and ready for the next 50. #NARAL50

Let’s be clear: no quid pro quo is required to betray our country. @realDonaldTrump asked a foreign government to interfere in our elections — that is betrayal enough.
