Records may include photos, original documents, family history, relatives, specific dates, locations and full names. "[79] Joshua D. Rothman, a history professor at the University of Alabama, responded that slavery was neither "necessary" nor on the way to "extinction" when America was founded, because it "was a choice defended or accepted by most white Americans for generations, and it expanded dramatically between the Revolution and the Civil War".

[58] Cotton specifically blocked the nominations of Butts and ambassador nominees to Sweden and Norway after the Secret Service had leaked private information about a fellow member of Congress, although that issue was unrelated to those nominees. They were released after paying a $50 fine. [26], The Club for Growth endorsed Cotton. Cotton eventually released his holds on the nominees to Sweden and Norway, but kept his hold on Butts's nomination. That's simply not the case."

Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe blasts Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff for leveraging a political narrative. Thomas B. [157], President Barack Obama mocked the letter, referring to it as an "unusual coalition" with the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as well as an interference with the then-ongoing negotiations of a comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear program. He said such "tough calls" to allow its return were an option the then president-elect Donald Trump was ready to follow: "If experienced intelligence officials come to the President of the United States and say we think this terrorist has critical information and we need to obtain it and this is the only way we can obtain it -- it's a tough call.

On 31 January, spurred in part by Cotton's warnings, the Trump administration banned most travel from China. First, Senator Ted Cruz placed a blanket hold on all U.S. State Department nominees. [129], In 2018, Cotton was a cosponsor of the Countering the Chinese Government and Communist Party's Political Influence Operations Act, a bill introduced by Marco Rubio and Catherine Cortez Masto that would grant the U.S. Secretary of State and the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) the authority to create an interagency task force with the purpose of examining attempts by China to influence the U.S. and key allies. [114][115], During a February 5, 2015 Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, Cotton called for housing more prisoners at Guantanamo Bay instead of closing it. By the time he left the military, Tom was at that point a commonly recognized name back home in the circle of things relating to the U.S military and wanted to shape things directly in America. When his clerkship was over, Cotton went into private practice, working briefly as an associate at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, purportedly to help pay off his student loans.
