Today, February 1, 2023, U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) was named to serve on the prestigious House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence by Leader Hakeem Jeffries. Gottheimer released the following statement:
“I’m honored to be appointed by Leader Hakeem Jeffries to serve on the bipartisan House Intelligence Committee and to have the opportunity to work with our intelligence community to protect our great nation. Today, the safety and security of the United States is at a critical juncture. We’re facing rapidly evolving threats from foreign terrorists, and bad actors including China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, and other oppressive regimes. We must also stand by our key allies under threat, including Israel. We must remain vigilant to protect our country and our democracy. I’m looking forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle on the Select Committee to find common ground, support our intelligence community, fight terror, and advance national security solutions to protect us all.”

On Financial Services, Gottheimer serves on the Subcommittee on Capital Markets, the Subcommittee on National Security, Illicit Finance, and International Financial Institutions; and the Subcommittee on Digital Assets, Financial Technology and Inclusion.
