Marsha Blackburn Report: This Week From Washington – September 29th, 2019

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – This week House Democrats gathered to announce their intention to begin formal impeachment inquiries against President Donald Trump. The announcement was the culmination of a three-year witch hunt that started with a grudge they’ve held against the president since their chosen candidate failed to win the 2016 election.

Big Tech Needs An Objective Cop On The Beat

Every day we live our transactional lives online; we bank via apps, sign up for credit cards using codes we received in an email, and manage our finances with cloud-based software.

On Tuesday, I held a TeleTown Hall that reached 100,000 of my fellow Tennesseans. The discussion centered on a wide range of topics: nuclear power, gun rights, health care for our veterans, and the invasive Asian Carp species that is affecting the fish industry and tourism.

What better way to celebrate the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote than encouraging them to run for office! At The Atlantic’s ‘Women of Washington’ Event, I discussed why women need to take the risk and put their name on the ballot. 

On Monday, I joined CNBC’s Squawk Box to discuss why it is important to have one basic privacy standard so that we keep the virtual space competitive and encourage innovation. 

Tennessee Tuesday

At Tennessee Tuesday, Senator Alexander and I were joined by over 100 Tennesseans full of that Volunteer spirit!
