Washington, D.C. – Here’s the scoop on impeachment. For the past three years, Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who is currently the Speaker of the House of Representatives, has grasped aimlessly at every unsubstantiated claim, desperate to find an impeachable offense.
There is a reason the only bipartisan vote in the House was against impeachment. President Donald Trump has not abused his power. If the House sends its articles of impeachment to the Senate and the trial begins, Tennesseans can count on me to stand with President Trump.

Marsha Blackburn says a Balanced Approach to Privacy Legislation Will Protect American Consumers from Bad Actors
Washington, D.C. – Once upon a time, American consumers adopted new tech without stopping to consider the consequences.
The allure of connectivity outweighed misgivings about surrendering our full names, phone numbers, and strong opinions on national politics to an online void we barely understood.

In 2019, we know that they absolutely would, and that they do.
