“As a Member of Congress for the last six years, I am deeply grateful for the privilege of serving the 9th Congressional District. Regardless of the determination of the evidentiary hearing, I will not be a candidate in a possible primary election.
“During my tenure in Congress, I focused on national security issues to protect our homeland. During this time, I have organized and hosted 12 Parliamentary Intelligence-Security Forums in Washington, Buenos Aires, Berlin, Vienna and Riga, involving over 800 Members of Parliament and government officials from 80 countries. 100 plus leading security experts from the government and private sector, including Treasury and Intelligence officials, and experts from Bank of America and SAS, have addressed these Forums.
“On December 6th, we hosted 300 Members of Parliament from 80 countries in Washington, who were briefed by these experts on counter terror finance, cyber security, Intelligence sharing, block chain currencies and predatory foreign investments. In 2019, as Chairman of the Parliamentary Intelligence-Security Forum, we have briefings already planned in Paraguay, Israel, Togo, Europe and Asia, as we build stronger collaboration in our alliance to defeat global Islamic jihad.”
