WASHINGTON, DC - Yesterday, Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-TX), Ranking Member of the House Armed Services Committee, sat down with Maria Bartiromo to discuss Syria, terrorism, and border security. On Syria, Thornberry said, "If you let up the pressure on terrorist groups, whether they're in Syria, Afghanistan, or Yemen, they can spring back to life very quickly and threaten us here at home."
“Russia has violated the INF treaty for at least ten years. In that time, Presidents of both parties have urged them to return to compliance, Congress has admonished them, the United States has imposed sanctions against them, and the President has threatened to withdraw from the treaty. None of these actions has convinced Russia to return to compliance.
