My thoughts are with the people of Florida as Hurricane Ian makes landfall. Praying for the safety of all those who lie in the storm’s path, and for a swift recovery in the days and weeks ahead.

There's no doubt the last year was difficult. But the Jewish community is resilient. And I hope that next year will be our best yet. So as Rosh Hashanah comes to an end, I hope you enjoy one last apple in honey with the people you love most. Have a happy, healthy new year.

Tonight, we mark the Jewish New Year with the celebration of Rosh Hashanah.   This is a special time for our community.   A time to relish the sweet things in life: our friends and family, our good health, and the promise of a better year to come.   Shanah Tovah!

No one can declassify national security information just by thinking about it. People put their lives at risk to get that information. Information that protects American lives. For Donald Trump to treat it so cavalierly shows what a continuing danger he is to our country.

The GOP agenda: A nationwide abortion ban. Higher prescription drug prices. Gutting Social Security and Medicare. Less secure elections and a weakened democracy. With an agenda as deeply unpopular as that, no wonder they want to make it hard to vote.

Brave women in Iran are risking everything to confront one of the world's most violent, repressive regimes. With Iran at UNGA, we must demand investigations into its human rights violations and treatment of prisoners and protestors. We must fight for freedom at home and abroad.

Hi 👋. House Intelligence Committee Chair here. Trump just claimed he could declassify things by saying “‘it’s declassified,’ even by thinking about it.” I know he says he’s a big “thinker” and all, but that’s not how any of this works. Not by any stretch of the imagination.

This Armenian Independence Day, we mourn the Armenian soldiers murdered last week by Azeri forces, and seek justice for the displaced and terrorized. These atrocities will continue until the international community condemns Aliyev, unequivocally. The U.S. must lead the way.

Donald Trump has never been more than a grifter. Swindling his customers, his contractors, and the country. But justice may be finally catching up with him. To vindicate the interests of all those he defrauded. And to protect a country he divided and endangered.

The Presidential Election Reform Act will help strengthen the foundation of our democracy. Ensuring that state officials do not change the rules after an election to overturn the will of the people as expressed by their votes. No matter who wins or loses.

Proud @SpeakerPelosi went to Yerevan to express America’s solidarity with Armenia. Because only when America and the international community stand up to the brutal dictator in Baku will the bloodshed end. America and Congress must go further, and cut off all aid to Azerbaijan.

Yet another depraved political stunt to exploit yet another vulnerable population for political gain. Hoping to out-Trump Trump, DeSantis sinks lower and lower.

Elijah Cummings was our North Star. The one we all turned to for counsel, wisdom, and a wry wit. I miss my friend. He gave so much to our country and the Congress. His beautiful portrait is fitting tribute. May his memory continue to guide and inspire us.

Azerbaijan must stop attacking and terrorizing innocent Armenian civilians. And the U.S. and its allies must unequivocally condemn Azeri actions.   Today, we introduced a resolution with a resounding message: No more U.S. support for Azerbaijan. It must pay for its belligerence.

A nationwide abortion ban was always their end game. Republicans waged an assault on reproductive rights. Enacting draconian laws and packing the court. Today, they’ve introduced an abortion ban. It must be stopped. Now is the time to abolish the filibuster and codify Roe.

Proud to join my colleagues and @POTUS today celebrating a bill that will do so much good for our people. The Inflation Reduction Act will lower costs for working families, aggressively fight climate change, and bring down drug costs. And it’s just the start.

Azerbaijan has reportedly shelled the homes of innocent civilians in Artsakh and is now attacking Armenia’s border. An egregious violation of the ceasefire and direct attack on Armenia’s sovereignty. The U.S. must halt all assistance to Azerbaijan - immediately and permanently.

Republicans in Congress are trying to block: - Lower Rx drug prices - A safer planet for our children - Making the largest corporations pay their fair share in taxes They failed. So naturally, they’re now going after Social Security. No way. Not gonna happen.

It's hard to believe it's been more than two decades since the tragedy of September 11, 2001. The pain of that day is indelible. And the loss of our fellow Americans still brings grief. May their memories be a blessing – for their families and for this nation.

From outnumbered, to forcing the enemy into retreat. Ukraine’s victories represent remarkable progress in their fight for sovereignty. And proof that Putin’s belligerence is no match for the Ukrainian people’s strong hearts and minds.
