House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy released the following statement after the Committee held a classified briefing on election security and foreign influence operations ahead of the midterm elections.

"In 2016, hostile foreign actors attempted to undermine the fundamentals of our democracy and challenge the reliability of the 2016 election. As we near midterm elections, we must take every step possible to safeguard our electoral process and ensure our fellow citizens have confidence in the security of our elections. I appreciate DHS, ODNI, FBI and DOJ appearing before the Committee this morning."
