As you honor my father today, please honor my mother, as well. She was the architect of the King Legacy and founder of @TheKingCenter, which she founded less than three months after Daddy died. Without #CorettaScottKing, there would be no #MLKDay. #MLK #BelovedCommunity
NEW: President-elect Joe Biden expected to nominate Gary Gensler to serve as SEC commissioner and Rohit Chopra to lead the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, source says
For too long, our banking regulators have behaved like they work for the financial institutions they regulate – not the American people. But big change is coming. President-elect Biden couldn't have made two better picks to lead the SEC and CFPB: Gary Gensler and Rohit Chopra.
Gary Gensler and I worked together after the 2008 crisis to hold Wall Street accountable. He is a tenacious regulator who stood up to the industry titans to rein in their risky behavior. He will be an excellent SEC Chair during this economic crisis.
I worked closely with Rohit @ChopraFTC to set up the CFPB and fight for America's students. It’s terrific that President-elect Biden picked Rohit to run the @CFPB. He's been a fearless champion for consumers at the FTC and will be a fearless champion leading the consumer agency.
Science will always be at the forefront of my administration — and these world-renowned scientists will ensure everything we do is grounded in science, facts, and the truth.
Thousands are dying from COVID-19 each day. Yet, the Administration has failed to fully embrace using the Defense Production Act to bolster our vaccine supply. Today, @SenWarren and I wrote to the heads of Operation Warp Speed detailing how to do so. We can’t waste any more time.
It’s infuriating that the Trump admin failed to use the DPA to its fullest extent for COVID vaccines, and @RepKatiePorter and I told them so. I also updated the Biden-Harris team on all my COVID oversight work with recs on how they can use the DPA to stabilize our supply chain.
I’ll work with President-elect Biden to strengthen and pass this package immediately. But let’s be clear: if the Republicans want to drag their feet while working families struggle, the Democratic majority should use every legislative tool available to pass it.
I carefully read President-elect Biden’s America Rescue Plan. It’s full of many things I’ve been fighting for: Hazard pay. Rent and utility assistance. An eviction moratorium. Extended and expanded unemployment. Paid leave. A $15 minimum wage. An OSHA ETS. And lots, lots more.

Trump was impeached once for asking a foreign government to interfere in our elections and a cover-up. He was impeached again for inciting a mob to overthrow our democracy.
The Senate must send a message: no President will ever again be allowed to act like a two-bit dictator.
Members of Congress take an oath to support and defend the Constitution. The House fulfilled that duty today by impeaching President Trump for inciting an insurrection. The Senate must fulfill its oath immediately by convicting and barring him from ever holding office again.
America was attacked and America must respond.
My remarks on why we must impeach and remove Donald Trump for his role in threatening the integrity of the democratic process, interfering with the peaceful transfer of power, and imperiling a coequal branch of government.
Biden-Harris ran on the most progressive economic and racial justice platform of any general election nominee ever. Now isn't the time to hand over the keys to corporate lobbyists. Read my op-ed on why Dems need to take bold steps for the American people.
