Third Way Applauds Appointments on New Select Committee on China
WASHINGTON — Third Way released the following statement from Valerie Shen, Vice President for National Security:
"Today, Leader Hakeem Jeffries announced an impressive and diverse slate of Democrats to serve on the Select Committee on the Strategic Competition Between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party. As the top Democrat on the Select Committee, Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi’s proven bipartisan leadership and national security experience as a senior member of the House Intelligence Committee will be invaluable to working on robust solutions with Chairman Mike Gallagher. As a member of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, Rep. Krishnamoorthi is also well-placed to guard against dangerous rhetoric that could incite anti-Asian hate.
"Our program’s bipartisan US-China Digital World Order Initiative is dedicated to developing a whole-of-society strategy to win the national security competition with China by setting the digital rules of the road with democratic values – free speech, privacy rights, truth, human rights, and accountability – instead of the Chinese state’s techno-authoritarianism of surveillance and censorship.
"We applaud the selection of Rep. Krishnamoorthi as ranking Democrat and look forward to partnering with Chairman Gallagher and the entire Select Committee’s team in support of their vital work."
