Eshoo: Steve Bannon’s Appointment to the NSC is ‘Outrageous’
February 1st, 2017
Today, Congresswoman Anna Eshoo (D-CA), a veteran of the House Intelligence Committee, released a statement following Steve Bannon’s appointment to the National Security Council.
“The appointment of Steve Bannon to the National Security Council is outrageous. As an eight year veteran of the House Intelligence Committee, I know full well that to leave out our nation’s top military official, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) who oversees the entire intelligence community, substantially weakens our national security. I’m aghast that the new President would place a person without any experience on this critical panel and leave out two of the most critical.”
