|THIS WEEK, SENATOR BRAUN weighed in on House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry into President Trump and responded to thousands of aborted fetal remains being found in the home of an Indiana abortionist by calling on the Attorney General to provide federal resources for an investigation into how it was allowed to happen and introduced a bill to ensure it never will again.
Senator Braun joined Dan Proft and Amy Jacobson on Chicago’s Morning Answer to discuss House Democrats’ attempt to impeach President Trump.
“From day one, they could not get over the fact that an outsider entrepreneur got through to become President, kind of like what I did when I ran the gauntlet to become senator, and they’ll never get over it.”
“We know they hate the idea of an outsider for President, but from day one they’ve been trying to get him and what’s amazing to me is that they do the official impeachment inquiry even before the information comes out, all based on a hearsay whistleblower report that was a big nothing-burger.”
Senator Braun spoke to Breitbart News to discuss House Democrats launching impeachment proceedings based on hearsay about a whistleblower complaint that was based on secondhand information, as well as his worry that the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry will grind all other legislative priorities for Americans – particularly lowering the costs of healthcare – to a screeching halt.
The Washington Examiner reported on Senator Braun’s bill with several GOP senators to follow Indiana’s lead in making a national law to ensure fetal remains from abortions are treated with the respect and dignity of a proper burial.
Senator Braun on the proposed law: “The discovery of thousands of fetal remains in an Indiana abortionist’s home horrified every American who respects the sanctity of life, and highlighted a disturbing trend that Indiana has taken the lead in rectifying. All human remains, regardless of the stage of life, deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, and I’m proud to introduce the Dignity for Aborted Children Act to ensure that grotesque collections like Dr. Klopfer’s can’t be allowed to happen ever again.”
Senator Braun spoke with the Washington Examiner on the state of agriculture in Indiana, the effect of tariffs with China, the long-term forecast for farms across the country, and if the agricultural community is abandoning President Trump over trade negotiations, to which Braun says no.
“Sen. Mike Braun, a freshman Indiana Republican, sees it differently. Yes, the farming industry is in a rough patch and is taking a lot of the heat in the trade war. But, in Braun’s estimation, the people who think that farmers are breaking away from Trump because of that are flat wrong.
“‘Farming has much deeper problems. Trade and tariffs are just the salts in the wound,’ Braun said in an interview with the Washington Examiner.”
This week, Senator Braun and Senator Todd Young wrote to Attorney General William Barr to request federal support in the investigation into how abortionist Dr. Ulrich Klopfer was able to keep the remains over 2,000 aborted fetuses in his garage.
“Sens. Todd Young and Mike Braun, both Republicans, wrote in a letter to U.S. Attorney General William Barr that Dr. Ulrich Klopfer’s ‘blatant disregard of human life’ raises questions about the 2,246 fetal remains found in his home earlier in September.
“‘In light of this horrific discovery, we urge you to do everything in your power to support the Indiana and Illinois attorneys general in their investigations, and to keep us informed of any developments,’ Young and Braun wrote to Barr.
Inspired by Indiana mom Laura McLinn’s fight for drug and treatment access, Senator Braun penned an op-ed for Modern Healthcare magazine calling on Congress to hasten their quicksand pace in finding a middle-ground solution on drug access, and proposing a solution that would provide wider access to more drugs for less without sacrificing safety for American patients.
In the business world, those who are slow to act and adapt find themselves out of business in a hurry. In Washington, it can take 10 years to get even a good idea across the finish line.
But when it comes to the soaring drug prices, lack of access to meaningful treatments and drug shortages, D.C.’s quicksand pace isn’t just frustrating—it can be deadly.
The ADAPT Act would amend the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to create an accelerated approval pathway to act as a “passing lane” for prescription drugs that have already been approved for sale in other developed countries like the U.K. and Canada with a history of good clinical trials and available data. This pathway would allow U.S. patients more rapid access to meaningful treatments already sold in other developed countries that are proven to work.

“I was surprised by how authentic he is and how his message has been very consistent [when talking to various groups],” Drake said. “He’s not the stereotypical politician, which is refreshing to me … [Our country] was never meant for career politicians. It was meant for people that come from the same roots that we do and they move up the ranks and they are able to lead from a perspective that they’ve been there and done that.”
