It is critical that the United States sends a powerful message of strength to the global community, especially in the face of global challenges posed by the Chinese Communist Party. I’m looking forward to joining the team at the Global Tech Security Commission to advise efforts to amplify this vital national security message. My work on the House Select Committee on the Strategic Competition Between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party supports our nation’s critical mission to deter violations of American sovereignty and transnational aggression by the CCP on our soil.
