Additional Information on Richard Blumenthal

  • As a senator, Blumenthal has voted in favor of banning the sale of “high-capacity” magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition. He also has accused the National Rifle Association of “inciting violence” with its pro-Second Amendment “rhetoric.”
  • After President Donald Trump fired James Comey as FBI director in May 2017, Blumenthal said: “The need for a special prosecutor is now crystal clear. President Trump has catastrophically compromised the FBI’s ongoing investigation of his own White House’s ties to Russia…. Not since Watergate have our legal systems been so threatened, and our faith in the independence and integrity of those systems so shaken.”
