This week in the Committee, our focus was all on Russia. Here’s the core of the issue: there is evidence from U.S. intelligence that Russia’s aggression is escalating dramatically…and that the White House has known for months, but has not responded

Our service members deserve to know this Administration has their backs. Russia's intentions toward the US in Afghanistan have been clear and I can't see any strategic reason why this Admin. is not holding Russia accountable for their actions. Watch our hearing.

We need to know what intel the President may have known & when about potential Russian efforts to harm American troops. But this is bigger than just 1 daily briefing. Yet again, the President appears to put his own interests ahead of keeping our troops safe. WATCH:

This should keep you up at night Q: What is the cost to US of not even saying a word to Putin if reporting is true? Former Acting CIA Director: “significantly increases the chances of him doing something else...possibly even larger than what we’ve seen in this case”

Today the House Foreign Affairs Committee holds a hearing on the Trump Administration’s lack of response to reports Russia placed bounties on U.S. and allied forces. Trump’s failure to act may have led to the deaths of American troops in Afghanistan.

Chairman : I share the ’s concern about the problematic and ambiguous draft media law in Kyrgyzstan that could censor online content and further restrict press freedoms. Now is more important than ever to ensure access to information.

Today’s hearing was also a reminder that America’s longest war, now approaching nearly two decades of continued conflict, still rages on in Afghanistan. We need to bring this endless war to a close.

Replying to @HouseForeign
"At a time when the White House cares more about narrow partisan politics than national security, Congress must step in to protect our democracy." The bill would incentivize people to turn over information about foreign election interference.

Chairman introduces bipartisan legislation designed to combat foreign election interference. The bill would expand an existing State Department initiative to reward people who alert American authorities about interference in American elections from overseas.

Glad the administration has finally gotten around to sanctioning human rights violations in , but this is too little, too late. We won’t forget Trump cares more about his trade deal than the —and reportedly told Xi Jinping he approves of the detention camps.

At the hearing I’m chairing, I asked , who used to deliver the President's daily briefing, whether the President would be made aware of intelligence that Russians were paying to have American service members killed. His answer: “Without a doubt.”

Putin is not a partner. He’s a dictator, who: -extended his tenure to 2036 -robbed his people of rights -trampled on the sovereignty of his neighbors All that is contemptible enough. But putting a price on American heads is a deeply provocative escalation.

. hearing today on reports that Russia put bounties on the heads of American & allied troops. Whole situation—from Russia’s behavior to the admin’s handling of it—is unacceptable. Why has Russia faced no consequences—not even a public rebuke—from the Trump admin?

We must protect our troops as they fight to protect us. The Trump Administration has disregarded credible intelligence that Russia was targeting US troops.
