All House Oversight Committee Members Unite To Issue Joint Statement on Terrorist Attacks
Today, all Members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform issued the following statement in response to multiple pipe bombs targeting government officials, press outlets, and others:
"In light of the terrorist acts of the last 48 hours, we are issuing this united statement to condemn in the strongest terms any actions that threaten to commit violence against the people of the United States, including current or former elected officials, members of the media, individual Americans, or anyone else--regardless of their political background or position. Just as importantly, we strongly condemn any rhetoric by current or former elected officials, members of the media, individual Americans, or anyone else that condones, excuses, or encourages such violence. As Americans, we believe that when our nation comes under attack, we are strongest when we stand together."
