Is this a great team or what?

Last week, a new Congress was sworn in.

I'm very excited about what happens next.

A working government? Integrity? Decency? I'm going to work hard so they become the standard once again in Washington D.C. – not the exception.

I recorded a short video on the steps of Congress with my thoughts minutes before I was sworn in to this new term. Click here to check it out on my Twitter account:

Once we got to the House floor, I got together with my fellow representatives from Connecticut, including new Rep. Jahana Hayes. Is this a great team or what?

After too many years of extreme leadership in the House, I’m ready to get to work with Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats to reopen the government and get back to the business of the people.

That includes getting back to work providing oversight to the intelligence community. From my seat as the #2 Democrat on House Intelligence, you can bet I'll be keeping busy.

I spoke to CNN about this important work the other day. Take a look:

Thank you for your tremendous grassroots support in 2018. Your energy and enthusiasm got us here.

Let's take the next steps together and get to work rebuilding a government by and for the American people.
