Langevin Statement on White House Response to Russian Election Interference
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI), co-founder and co-chair of the Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus and a senior member of the House Committees on Armed Services and Homeland Security, released the following statement on President Obama’s response to Russian attempts to interfere in the 2016 election: “Interference in our electoral processes cannot be tolerated, and I am encouraged that President Obama is taking steps to respond to Russian attempts to undermine faith in and influence the 2016 federal elections. In particular, I commend the President for using a full range of response options, including economic, diplomatic, and cybersecurity actions. As nations increasingly use hacking and other cyber operations to advance their objectives, it is imperative that the United States respond firmly to attacks targeting our interests. “The President’s actions are also notable because they have a deterrent effect beyond the punishment of Russians directly involved with or supporting t
Langevin Statement on Appointment of Thomas Bossert
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI), co-founder and co-chair of the Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus and a senior member of the House Committees on Homeland Security and Armed Services, released a statement following President-elect Trump’s decision to appoint Thomas P. Bossert as Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism: “I congratulate Tom on his appointment as the President-elect’s chief homeland security advisor.

I believe that cybersecurity is the signature national security issue of our time, and it is imperative that the President-elect make it a top priority when he assumes office. “Tom brings important experience to this role, particularly his work with the National Security Council during President George W. Bush’s administration. He has been a strong advocate for public-private partnerships in cyb
Langevin Statement on Vote to Undermine Office of Congressional Ethics
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) released the following statement in opposition to Republican efforts to effectively eliminate the Office of Congressional Ethics, the independent panel that reviews ethics complaints against Members of Congress: “It’s a new year and a new low for House Republicans, opening the 115th Congress by stripping critical oversight and accountability procedures from the Office of Congressional Ethics. I cannot understand how anyone could justify voting for this measure. The Office of Congressional Ethics is currently an independent, non-partisan entity. The office has, historically, been able to investigate wrongdoing by Members of Congress, including anonymous reports by whistleblowers. By stripping this office of its power and instead transferring oversight to the House Ethics Committee – into the very hands of those who could be subject to such investigations – House Republicans have betrayed the trust of their constituents. “This is a disheartening
Langevin Statement on UN Resolution to End Israeli Settlements
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI), a senior member of the House Armed Services and Homeland Security Committees, released the following statement in response to the United Nations Security Council resolution demanding an end to Israeli settlements: “Decades of turmoil, lives lost, and families destroyed remind us that there is no easy solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but peace in the Middle East will only be achieved through direct, good-faith negotiations between the two parties. Unilateral action by the United States or the United Nations will resolve nothing; rather, this UN resolution will only heighten tensions and push us further away from a peaceful solution. “The United States and Israel share a unique bond, and despite these challenging times, that relationship cannot and will not be broken. Our efforts to foster peace must continue, and so must our commitment to Israel as our friends look to build a safe and democratic Jewish state.”
