Castor calls for investigation of 9/11 Sarasota connection


Tampa Congresswoman Kathy Castor Monday called on the House Intelligence Committee to investigate why the FBI did not disclose to Congress information it learned about a Saudi couple living in southwest Florida with ties to the 9/11 hijackers. The Saudis came to the FBI’s attention after neighbors reported they’d suddenly fled their home near Sarasota two weeks before the 2001 terrorist attacks. “One of the great criticisms of the pre-9/11 intelligence operations,” Castor wrote in her letter to the committee’s two senior members, “was the lack of ...

Concurrently, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was saying even before the storm hit that Congress would need to make commensurate budget cuts to pay for FEMA funding for hurricane cleanup. That statement has been met ...

U.S. Rep. Castor's statement on Russian cyberattacks
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) issued the following statement on Russian cyberattacks against the United States: “The United States must hold Russia accountable for cyberattacks against our country, our electoral system and the private intellectual property of American businesses. These Russian cyberattacks were not a move against any one party, they were a move against our nation and all Americans. The United States also should consider broader sanctions against the Russian government following a robust, bipartisan investigation to confirm the extent and identities of responsible individuals, including Vladimir Putin himself.   “America must strike back at any foreign country or non-state actor that interferes in America’s most sacred exercise of democracy. Cyberwarfare against the United States demands retaliatory measures and defensive steps to protect computer systems from malevolent hacking. “Finally, President-Elect Trump should reassess his knowledge and rhetoric

Castor: Short-term budget measure a fitting symbol of U.S. House Republicans’ failure to govern
U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL14) released the following statement on the short-term funding bill: “House Republicans end the session with a fitting symbol of their failure to govern -- a funding bill that fails to meet the needs of our hardworking neighbors and families and covers only a few months in the new year. Speaker Ryan and House Republicans adjourned the House in mid-July and spent only a few days since then doing the job to which they were elected. The Congressional Republican funding measure creates uncertainty for communities like mine and all across the country and hamstrings agencies -- especially those established to keep our country safe. Short-term measures do not allow an opportunity to plan for the future or to make educated, timely, tough decisions about where to cut or augment. “Congressional Republicans appear ready to inflict greater economic damage to hardworking families in the new year as Republicans are poised to return to the days of trickle-dow
