Senator Hawley Selected to Chair Judiciary Crime and Terrorism Subcommittee, Named to Two Additional Subcommittees

“Congress has a duty to ensure our families and communities are safe. From the child walking home from school alone, to human trafficking victims looking for a new life, to the millions of Americans who trust internet giants with their personal data; every American deserves to have the peace of mind that their government will protect them from harm. I am honored to lead the Crime and Terrorism Subcommittee in its efforts to keep people safe and fight for their rights.”

Senator Hawley Statement on Bill Barr’s Confirmation as Attorney General

“I’m delighted Bill Barr has been confirmed as the next Attorney General of the United States. I look forward to working with him to curb illegal immigration and hold big tech companies accountable. I’m disappointed to see so many Senate Democrats oppose this nomination today, despite Attorney General Barr’s unanimous confirmation for this job 27 years ago. I believe he is exceptionally qualified and will lead the Department of Justice with integrity and purpose.”
