Robert Mueller is an excellent choice to serve as special counsel. I am confident that he will lead a full and thorough investigation of all aspects surrounding Russia’s interference in our election.
However, I still believe that Congress must move forward with its own investigation into Russia’s attempts to undermine our democratic process. According to testimony before the Senate Armed... View details ⇨

Today, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee passed my Boots on the Border Act. This legislation removes onerous and duplicative hiring regulations that prevent us from filling much-needed jobs to secure our southern border.

At today's Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on cyber strategy and readiness, General James Clapper made it clear that the cyber capabilities of both state and nonstate actors wishing to do us harm are only growing.
This truth underscores the need for a comprehensive policy and strategy to defend, deter, and defeat cyber attacks.
While the President has the legal authority to remove the Director of the FBI, I am disappointed in the President's decision to remove James Comey from office. James Comey is a man of honor and integrity, and he has led the FBI well in extraordinary circumstances.
I have long called for a special congressional committee to investigate Russia's interference in the 2016 election. The... View details ⇨
Today, Admiral Mike Rogers, Commander of U.S. Cyber Command, confirmed that he has seen no slowing of Russian cyberattacks, yet we still lack a strategy to defeat and deter these actions.
