Quotes from the news wire:
I do think that you would have a meaningful piece of legislation if you focus specifically on things that Cory Booker have in common and gave Cory Booker a little breathing room for the things that Cory Booker don't, but Cory Booker're not there yet. Cory Booker're going to keep working on what Cory Booker're working on and hopefully Cory Booker get that.
Intolerance so often comes from the left with words like 'Uncle Tim' and the 'n-word' being used against me, and last night what was trending in social media was 'Uncle Tim,' and they doubled down on this concept of liberal oppression. It is stunning in 2021 that those who speak about ending discrimination want to end it by more discrimination.
We know there is more work to be done to ensure the bad apples do not define all officers — the vast majority of whom put on the uniform each day with integrity and servant hearts, we must all come together to help repair the tenuous relationship between law enforcement and Black and minority Americans.
We don't have any information around no-knock warrants, so for us to start a conversation with banning no-knocks doesn't sound like a solid position based on any data because we don't have that data.

I'm not sure if we can on those two issues but I don't want that to stand in the way of what we can get accomplished.
I think the President of Ukraine, when the President started talking about the server, which has to do with the 2016 election, the President of Ukraine started talking about continuing the investigation and that's what started that part of the conversation, so, I see it a little differently than you guys.
John McCain has served John McCain country in many facets and a building named after John McCain makes a lot of sense to me, i think the fact of the matter is a prisoner of war for five years who decides to stay there, someone who served in Congress, served in United States Russell Senate, someone who believed in American exceptionalism. Sounds like a good idea.
One of the things that perhaps we can learn through the political process about bringing people together is to remember South Carolina, remember the families of the nine victims, how they brought a community together during the worst atrocity in our state's history, i am thankful that I live in a country where forgiveness can be seen in the worst of conditions.
For some, that flag represents that history. And for so many others, it represents a pain and oppression. I'm looking forward to our state leaders getting together, and having a robust conversation after the funerals about what's the next step, i am going to make sure that I'm a part of that conversation. My voice will be clear. My position will be stated.
