MEDIA ADVISORY: Pfluger Announces Subcommittee Hearing on Combating CCP Aggression With DHS, FBI Witnesses
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Subcommittee on Counterterrorism, Law Enforcement, and Intelligence Chairman August Pfluger (R-TX) announced a hearing next week to assess the U.S. homeland’s vulnerabilities to Chinese Communist Party (CCP) aggression, featuring testimony from government officials. This hearing will follow a March hearing on mitigating CCP threats to the homeland, which included testimony from national security experts.
“As the CCP works to undermine our freedoms, infiltrate our institutions, and threaten our critical infrastructure, it is paramount that America meets CCP aggression with strength and its propaganda with truth. I look forward to the continued bipartisan cooperation in this Subcommittee as we work to combat the pervasive threats posed by the CCP to U.S. homeland security,” Subcommittee Chairman Pfluger said. “From contributing to our nation’s deadly fentanyl epidemic and establishing clandestine police stations to monitor dissent in U.S. cities, the CCP must be held accountable for its malign influence—and the House Homeland Security Committee is committed to ensuring the Biden administration does just that.”
