Washington— Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today released the following statement after the announcement that Congressman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) will be ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee:
“I’m pleased that Adam Schiff was named lead Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. He and Congressman Devin Nunes will represent California and the country well as leaders of that important committee.
“In appointing Congressman Schiff as ranking member, Leader Pelosi chose someone who cares deeply about national security, is steadfast in the need to protect the homeland and is committed to meaningful intelligence oversight.
“I had a close working relationship with Mike Rogers and Dutch Ruppersberger, who led the committee last year. I look forward to continuing that bipartisan cooperation with Chairman Nunes and Ranking Member Schiff on intelligence matters, foreign policy and more.”
