Langevin Urges New Administration to Take Action on Wassenaar
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI), who co-founded and co-chairs the Congressional Cybersecurity Caucus, today sent a letter to General Michael Flynn, National Security Adviser to President Donald Trump, urging him to seek modifications to the Wassenaar Arrangement as it relates to intrusion software. Building on his efforts over the past two years to make changes to the export controls agreement, Langevin is calling on the new Administration to continue efforts to renegotiate the controls at upcoming Wassenaar meetings so as to avoid undermining legitimate, defensive cybersecurity activity. Langevin was joined on the letter by leaders of the Committee on Homeland Security and the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform; last year, the committees held a joint hearing focused on the controls. “The threat landscape in cyberspace is complex and ever-changing. It is also international. We cannot require security researchers and other defenders to apply for a license in order to respond
Langevin Statement on Nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch for Supreme Court Justice
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) released the following statement in response to the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch as Justice to the Supreme Court of the United States:  “Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, political pundits, elected officials, and constituents would often remark that one of the most substantial consequences of the election would be the ability to fill at least one seat on the Supreme Court. I agree, and while I take comfort in the fact that Judge Gorsuch was appointed unanimously to the Court of Appeals, I do have concerns with what he will bring to the high court. This is a momentous time for the justices, charged as they are with deciding some of the most significant constitutional questions facing our nation, including, perhaps, the legality of immigration policy that targets Muslim refugees fleeing persecution. “In announcing the pick, President Trump said he chose a jurist in the mold of the late Antonin Scalia. But while I respected Justice Scalia
Langevin Resolution Supports Peaceful Installation of Gambian President Adama Barrow
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) introduced a resolution today to support the peaceful transition of power in The Gambia, as Adama Barrow prepares to be installed as President. The resolution, cosponsored by Congressman Dan Donovan (R-NY), denounces the 22-year oppressive rule of former President Yahya Jammeh, who lost to Barrow in the December 2016 election and whose subsequent challenge to the election results caused additional unrest in the country. “President Barrow’s victory represents a turning point for The Gambia and its people, and I am hopeful that his leadership will bring to an end decades of civil and political unrest,” said Langevin. “The installation of President Barrow is an affirmation of democracy, of free and fair elections, and of the dignity and respect that should be afforded to all people. I congratulate him on his victory, and I wish him the best as he leads his nation to a better, more peaceful future.” Former President Jammeh took power following a co
Langevin Bets on Patriots to Win
Congressman Jim Langevin (D-RI) and his New England colleague, Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA), have challenged Congressman John Lewis (D-GA) to a friendly wager over whether the New England Patriots or the Atlanta Falcons will take home Sunday’s coveted Super Bowl LI championship title. “With four Super Bowl titles under our belt and an impressive 14-2 season this year, I have no doubts: the Patriots are going to bring another Vince Lombardi Trophy back to New England. I look forward to another year of bragging rights over Congressman Lewis and all of my colleagues who aren’t fortunate enough to be a part of Pats Nation,” said Langevin. “Go Pats!” “Two of my colleagues reached out to me to take a chance on the Super Bowl,” said Rep. Lewis. “I warned them it wasn’t wise to bet against Atlanta, but they insisted. They think experience will win over the rising star. I reminded them that a rising star can be blinding. They told me to check their team’s record, consul
