Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks) introduced The Medical Travel Assistance to Protect Women's Right to Choose Act. This legislation will support women living in states that have enacted abortion bans by providing funding to travel to states where they can access full reproductive healthcare.
Congressman Brad Sherman joined Representatives Cori Bush, Sean Casten, Jason Crow, Pramila Jayapal and many other House Democrats to call on the Senate to end the filibuster. See their letter here.
"As we celebrate Earth Day, we must continue to fight climate change for future generations," said Congressman Brad Sherman on Earth Day. 'If we don't act on the climate crisis now in a meaningful way, our children will inherit an economy and a world beyond their capacity to repair."
Washington, D.C. – Today the House passed the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act, which protects workers’ right to organize a union and bargain for higher wages and better benefits. Congressman Sherman applauds Chairman of the Education & Labor Committee, Bobby Scott, for including a provision in the PRO Act that eliminates so-called ‘right-to-work’ laws nationwide.
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks), who is Chairman of the Subcommittee on Investor Protection, Entrepreneurship, and Capital Markets, joined Housing, Community Development, and Insurance Subcommittee Chairman Wm. Lacy Clay (D-MO) in sending a letter to Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, to raise concerns and important questions regarding practices by Facebook related to discriminatory ad targeting and digital redlining.

Washington, D.C. – Today Congressman Brad Sherman (D-Sherman Oaks) and Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) introduced the Safeguarding Elections by Countering Unchallenged Russian Efforts (SECURE) Act, a bill to end Russian interference in U.S. elections. While the Trump administration has acknowledged that the Russian government has interfered in past U.S. elections, and is working to interfere in the current 2020 election, it has taken no meaningful action to punish Russia for this activity.
Washington, DC - A sad day for our republic, as the Senate did not remove a President who abused his power to benefit himself personally. This impeachment trial, without hearing witnesses or subpoenaing documents, could not even be called a trial at all. Therefore, Trump has not been exonerated.
In July 2017, I introduced Articles of Impeachment, based on obstruction of justice and clear violations of Section 1512 (B3) of our criminal code, particularly obstruction of the investigation of the now convicted former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
When the then Republican majority refused to address those articles, I was not surprised.
Washington, DC – The House passed Congressman Brad Sherman’s amendment that punishes Russia for its meddling in U.S. elections. The amendment provides serious sanctions on the Russian state by prohibiting U.S. investors from buying Russian government debt. It also provides a mechanism for removing these sanctions in the future if the Administration and Congress both determine that Russia did not interfere in our next election.
Washington. D.C. – The Mueller report provides substantial evidence that President Trump violated felony criminal statutes regarding Obstruction of Justice – and the redactions seem to hide even more evidence of Obstruction.
Mueller believed that his report showed very substantial evidence of Obstruction of Justice. Mueller declined to opine on whether this evidence established Obstruction of Justice beyond a reasonable doubt. Instead he left it to others to determine whether the evidence of Obstruction of Justice justified further legal proceedings.
