Oversight of the FBI: The January 6th Insurrection, Domestic Terrorism, Other Threats

 

Federal Bureau of Investigation - FBIWashington, D.C. – Good morning, Chairman Durbin, Ranking Member Grassley, and members of the committee. I am honored to be here, representing the men and women of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Our people—nearly 37,000 of them—are the heart of the Bureau. I am proud of their service and their commitment to our mission. Every day, they tackle their jobs with perseverance, professionalism, and integrity—sometimes at the greatest of costs.

Just last month, two of our agents made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Special Agents Dan Alfin and Laura Schwartzenberger left home to carry out the mission they signed up for—to keep the American people safe.

U.S. Representative Mark Green releases Statement on Congress’ Impeachment Vote

 

U.S. House of RepresentativesWashington, D.C. – Today, Tuesday, January 12th, 2020, U.S. Representative Mark Green released the following statement: 

“Our country just witnessed an unthinkable act of violence against our Capitol, and I’m grateful law enforcement continues to bring those who committed the crime to justice. Now is the time for this country to come together.

Unity can only be achieved by focusing on where we find common ground instead of drawing new battle lines. Sadly, the efforts to impeach a President with only a week remaining in his term will only tear us further apart.

Healthcare Plan for All Americans

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “If there’s one thing Americans need to know about the healthcare plan President Donald Trump unveiled last week, it’s this: The president is delivering more choice, lower costs, and better care for every American, whatever their healthcare needs or however their healthcare is paid for,” Health & Human Services Secretary Alex Azar writes in Townhall.
 
“The previous administration’s attempt to fix our healthcare system, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), focused primarily on a tiny slice of American healthcare: the individual insurance market. President Trump’s plan goes much further.”
