May 9, 2018 Press Release
I applaud the diplomatic leadership of newly-confirmed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. The release of these 3 American prisoners by North Korea is another important milestone achieved on the way to possible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and regional stability. Rooted in skepticism and continuing our maximum pressure strategy, the future looks brighter than ever before.
April 26, 2018 Press Release
I cannot think of anyone in our country who is better suited for this critical position at this important moment in our nation’s history. Secretary Pompeo was first in his class at West Point, a great colleague in the House of Representatives, and an exceptional CIA Director. He’s intelligent, competent, qualified, talented, and has the potential to be one of the best Secretaries of State in our nation’s history.
April 24, 2018 Press Release
Iran Deal: ‘Fix it or nix it?’. Wrong to think it needs to be Congress' call, our allies', or @POTUS'. Iran either fixes it or nixes it. 2 choices. Iran either lifts the sunset provision, strengthens verification regime & ends other nefarious, illegal activities...or not.
February 28, 2018 Press Release
On the international stage, this legislation finally calls Hezbollah for what it is - a transnational criminal organization, one that for decades has funded their radical terrorist group by profiteering on money laundering, drug trafficking and other nefarious activities. This legislation that I have introduced with Congressman Ted Budd puts Hezbollah and all those who do business with them on notice. The United States will no longer stand idly by as Hezbollah pumps drugs onto our streets. We will root out Hezbollah’s complicit accomplices and topple their financial support network around the world.
January 18, 2018 Press Release
After reading the classified document released to Members today by the House Intel Committee regarding FISA abuse, I’m calling for its immediate public release with all relevant source material. In the interest of transparency, the American people must have access to this information immediately. Releasing this classified information will not compromise good sources and methods. It will, however, reveal the feds’ reliance on bad sources and methods.
December 30, 2017 Press Release
The Iranian people are fed up with Iran’s dictatorial regime’s brutal domestic tactics, dangerous foreign policy, and non-existent economic progress. Instead of caring for its own people, the Iranian regime has dedicated itself to maintaining its title as the world’s largest state sponsor of terror, seeking to appease domestic hardliners that keep them in power.

It was an honor to have just spent my third consecutive Christmas in the Middle East with our nation’s troops and diplomats stationed overseas. In 2015, I joined our service members in Iraq and Kuwait, and in 2016, I visited them in Afghanistan and Qatar. This past Christmas, I traveled to Afghanistan, Kuwait, and Jordan.
