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.

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.

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.

December 11, 2017 Press Release
This morning’s cowardly terrorist attack was another failed attempt to strike at the heart of the freedoms and liberties that make our country the greatest in the world. Once again, we are reminded of the evil that exists in our world and the radicalized terrorists who seek to destroy lives, communities, and nations across the globe, but as we have seen time and time again, this attack will only make New Yorkers and Americans stronger. The finest and bravest law enforcement officers on earth are right here in New York and the greatest military ever stands ready at the tip of the spear. I have every faith that they will do absolutely everything they can to accurately identify and eradicate this threat and protect our way of life.
