Defending the Homeland
The national security threats facing America today are immense. As your representative in Congress, I will be on the front line of protecting America’s national security interests.
In January 2019, the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) issued a report to Congress warning that China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea are currently capable of launching cyberattacks against America’s critical infrastructure, such as energy or electrical systems.
Cyberattacks are not the only threat to America’s national security. With President Trump withdrawing from two of the most significant peace agreements in world history—the INF Nuclear Treaty and the Iran Nuclear Deal—America now faces the possibility of a 21st century nuclear arms race.
Equally dangerous is the prospect of biological warfare. The weaponization of a biological agent such as anthrax, smallpox, or a virus not yet known could cause catastrophic damage to humankind.
