Statement for the Record
Good morning Chairman Graham, Ranking Member Feinstein, and members of the committee.
Thank you for inviting me to appear before you today. I’m honored to be here, representing the men and women of the FBI. Our people—nearly 37,000 of them—are the heart of the Bureau. I’m proud of their service and their commitment to our mission. Every day, they tackle their jobs with perseverance, professionalism, and integrity.
In the past two years, I have had the chance to visit all 56 field offices. I’ve visited the home states of every member of this committee, talking with state and local law enforcement partners and people in your communities about the issues that matter most to them. I’m grateful for their support and insights as we work together to keep 325 million American people safe, and to help make our communities stronger.
Today’s FBI is a national security and law enforcement organization
