On #DDay74, I’m thinking about Bedford, Va which sent 34 young Virginians into battle on #DDay. That day, 19 of them died, and four more gave their lives by the end of the Normandy campaign.
No American town sacrificed more that day, and today Bedford is home to the National D-Day Memorial, commemorating the Bedford Boys and the 10,000+ allied soldiers who gave their lives 74 years ago today.
Today is a somber reminder of the incredible bravery of those who landed on the beaches of Normandy and behind enemy lines on #DDay. Our country is forever indebted to the US and allied troops who led the way in liberating Europe from the Nazis. #DDay74

Craft brewers like the ones I met in Charlottesville this weekend are worried about what tariffs will mean for their businesses, but it’s not just craft beer that’s looking at price increases.
Working people and small businesses are the ones who will take the hit when prices go up for consumer products like clothes, air conditioners, and auto parts.
This isn’t just speculation — companies like Walmart, Procter & Gamble, Coca-Cola and Nestle have all either increased prices or warned that price hikes are coming soon.

We remain woefully underprepared to secure the upcoming elections, and an executive order is simply no substitute for congressional action, such as the strong measures included in the bipartisan DETER Act.
If we are going to actually deter Russia and others from interfering in our elections in the future, we need to spell out strong, clear consequences, without ambiguity.
In order to deter foreign interference in future elections, we must make it clear to Russia and other adversaries that interference is unacceptable, and will have painful consequences.

I would have liked to meet with Judge Kavanaugh personally before deciding how I'd vote. Even attempted to set up a meeting with him, though unfortunately the White House never responded. So I’m just going to say it.

I’ll be voting no on Judge Kavanaugh. Here’s why:
This is the most consequential Supreme Court vacancy in a generation, yet it has been the least transparent confirmation process in recent history.
Thanks to unprecedented efforts by the Trump Administration to conceal large portions of Judge Kavanaugh's record and his unwillingness to answer basic questions before the Judiciary Committee, much of his record and judicial philosophy remain a mystery to the American people.

Despite constant attacks by the President and his allies, Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team have once again demonstrated that they are conducting a serious, professional investigation into the Trump campaign’s contacts with Russians during the 2016 election.
As an influential foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, Mr. Papadopoulos was informed that Russia had ‘dirt’ on Hillary Clinton in the form of ‘thousands of emails’ at a critical time during the campaign.
He also had access to, and communications with, the campaign’s top leaders. That’s not conjecture – that is according to Mr. Papadopoulos himself.

A year ago today millions of Americans learned their private data was stolen in the Equifax breach. The lack of action by the Administration and Congressional leadership to hold Equifax accountable and prevent future breaches is a pretty glaring failure. Consumers deserve better.
I do take a slight issue with this headline, though. Earlier this year I helped pass legislation that provided for unlimited free credit freezes and unfreezes, which helps consumers impacted by data breaches like the Equifax hack. It’s a start, but is it enough? No way.
Congress could take action with legislation like my bill with @SenWarren that would penalize companies like Equifax who fail to protect sensitive consumer data.…

While we have an empty chair for @Google at today’s hearing, I’m encouraged that @Facebook and @Twitter have chosen to constructively engage today and to publicly answer some difficult questions from the Intelligence Committee.
It would be a serious understatement to say that much has changed in the aftermath of the 2016 U.S. campaign. With the benefit of hindsight, it is obvious that serious mistakes were made by each of the social media companies – as they were by the entire U.S. government.
Both Facebook and Twitter failed to anticipate how their platforms could be manipulated and misused. Like the federal government, they were caught flat-footed by the brazen attacks on our election by Russian-backed operatives.
