WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today announced that Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) will chair the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence in the 114th Congress:

“Today we face a sophisticated and determined terrorist enemy that is intent on killing more and more Americans, not to mention innocents around the globe.  We also face rogue states like Iran and North Korea that continue to thumb their noses at the United States.  The world is becoming increasingly dangerous and the Intelligence Committee is vital to our efforts to protect the American people.  Over the past four years, Devin has been instrumental in ensuring that our intelligence professionals have the resources they need to keep America safe.  He has asked tough questions and conducted serious oversight to hold the Obama administration accountable.  I look forward to working with him as the next chairman of the Intelligence Committee.”
