Moskowitz Appointed to House Oversight and Foreign Affairs Committees

Washington, DC

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Jared Moskowitz (D-Florida) announced his appointments to the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability as well as the House Committee on Foreign Affairs:

“I was elected to promote normalcy and good governance. I’m here to get things done. But Republican Leadership has rewarded the Freedom Caucus, all the folks who were holding up the Speakers vote, by placing them on the Oversight Committee. From media reports, it’s clear they will obstruct the Executive Branch’s work, push conspiracy theories, and turn the committee into Barnum Bailey circus show, made for TV.  I admit I am deeply concerned about the shift in power to the Executive branch based on Congress’ inability to effectively govern — leaving a void that’s been filled by Executive Action and weakened the legislative branch’s authority. I believe in government oversight. However, we need oversight that’s necessary and rooted in good government– not oversight rooted in pizza gate, Hunter Biden’s Bar Mitzvah video, and Jewish space lasers,” stated Moskowitz.

“As a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I will work to strengthen our deep relationship with Israel, combat antisemitism, support Ukraine in their war against Russia, and stand up to China’s military rise, competitiveness, and currency manipulation. As we grapple with these world issues, there are real, critical steps we must take to further empower the State Department, ramp up diplomatic efforts, protect democracy, and put America front and center as the world leader of foreign policy. I do not take these issues lightly and our failure to lead on a bipartisan basis will have global impacts,” Moskowitz concluded.

Subcommittee appointments will be determined at a later date.
