Statement From Rep. Peter Welch On Being Reappointed to House Intelligence Committee
Rep. Peter Welch was reappointed by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to the exclusive and powerful House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence on Friday afternoon. Last Congress, the committee, with Rep. Welch’s active participation, conducted the investigation into President Trump’s improper actions that led to the House impeaching the former president for the first time. In addition, the committee serves as an important check on the President’s executive power by monitoring covert actions and intelligence programs within the United States intelligence community.
“I am honored to be reappointed to the Intelligence Committee. I look forward to continuing to work with Chairman Schiff and my colleagues to enhance our national security, analyze and respond to intelligence threats, and make sure that intelligence agencies are transparent and following the law as they work to keep Americans safe.”
