He further said, on Congressional record, that all Bitcoin does is allow "a few dozen men in my district to sit in their pyjamas on their couch all day, and tell their wives they are going to be millionaires". He further suggested that Bitcoin doesn't provide any value to the real economy, asking "when you buy a Bitcoin, are you helping build a new factory?" On 18 July 2018, Sheman called for a ban on the dealing in or mining of cryptocurrencies by U.S. Persons; and states use of crypto currencies as a medium of exchange is useful only to individuals facilitating narcotics trafficking, terrorism, and tax evasion.

In January 2018, Sherman held a town hall meeting in Reseda, where a questioner who supported a Democratic primary challenger to Sherman accused the congressman of having an inadequate sexual harassment policy. Sherman replied, "We have five different ways to report sexual harassment in my office. One among those is to talk to me personally. And I talk to each staff member several times a year about the office policy." The exchange was cut from a video of the event that Sherman's office posted to YouTube; the office said that it excluded from the highlight reel "all questions asked by a questioner working with an opponent’s campaign if the questioner failed to disclose that fact in their question."


In 2017 and 2018, the Animal Welfare Institute gave Rep. Sherman a rating of 68% based on congressional voting records.

A focus of the criticism was Matt Dababneh, Sherman's district director and a close advisor, who began working for Sherman in 2005, and became district director to Sherman in 2009. Dababneh was elected to the California State Assembly in 2013, and resigning from that body after allegations of sexual assault and other misconduct were made against him. Former employees in Sherman's office told the Los Angeles Times that Dababneh frequently made inappropriate sexual remarks, including degrading and sexist comments, and bragged about his sexual exploits. No one suggested that Sherman knew of Dababneh's conduct, but several staffers said that the office environment did not encourage reporting and said that Sherman would not have been receptive to complaints about a trusted advisor.

During his appearance, Sherman went after the Qatar-based owners of Al Jazeera, criticizing the owners for funding Hamas. Sherman said, "Every one of those rockets [fired by Hamas into Israeli cities] is a war crime, almost every one. Of course it's a war crime committed by Hamas. And of course the owners of this TV network help fund Hamas." Sherman emphasized that Hamas often aims attacks at civilian targets. The owners of Al Jazeera that Sherman mentioned is the government of Qatar.
