Honoring The Great Man & The Week Ahead in Washington
Last Friday, we lost the “Conscience of the Congress” – Congressman John Robert Lewis. He was a towering figure in the history of our nation, but he was also a humble human being and my friend and colleague.
Words cannot describe the immense loss that our city, state, nation – and even the world – are feeling right now.

I also honored the family in a House floor speech HERE.
This upcoming week in Washington is going to be busy. On Monday, July 27, I’ll be in the Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial, and Administrative Law questioning executives from Google, Apple, Amazon and Facebook, among others, examining their market dominance and how we can better serve consumers. For more, click HERE.
On Tuesday, July 28, I’ll get the opportunity to question William Barr about how he is abusing his power as Attorney General in order to protect President Trump’s personal and political interests. From misleading the public about the Mueller Report, to using tear gas to disperse peaceful protesters at Lafayette Park, to firing a U.S. attorney investigating the president – everything will be on the table. For more, click HERE.
And on Thursday, July 30, I’ll be chairing my own subcommittee hearing on Courts, Intellectual Property and the Internet about the destructive impact of money and hyper-partisanship on our federal courts. For more, click HERE.
