President Biden vetoed a Republican attempt to restrict the #SEC from policing #cryptocurrency. But now, #Republicans are trying to override it. Today, I spoke on the House Floor where I urged my colleagues to sustain President Biden's veto. Watch ⬇️ https://t.co/oHngEWFOPA

For years, billionaire #Crypto bros yelled not to touch crypto because it's so innovative. Now, #Crypto and the #GOP bring a bill to block innovation. Why? Because the @FederalReserve may create a competing payment system with crypto. See my House Floor speech ⬇️ https://t.co/aRFQsL81sG

At today’s @FSCDems Digital Assets Subcommittee hearing on #Crypto crime, I asked leaders of crypto companies to commit to preventing the use of crypto mixers, which aid criminals by obscuring the flow of crypto. Unsurprisingly, not a single one agreed to. Watch ⬇️ https://t.co/PjB4YBgGJH

#Cryptocurrency means “hidden money” - its goal is right there in the name. Pleased to see @USTreasury propose rules today that require #crypto platforms to report its customers transactions to the #IRS - a measure @RepLynch & I urged for earlier this summer.

(2/2) #CryptoBillionaireBros have a huge financial stake in promoting #Crypto, so they claim it's a transparent payment method, and drug criminals just don't know what they are doing. Actions speak loudly. Self serving statements, not so much.
