Sen. Ossoff to continue bipartisan investigations and oversight alongside Ranking Member Marsha Blackburn (R-TN)
Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff will continue vigorous investigative oversight this Congress as Chairman of the Senate Human Rights Subcommittee.
Sen. Ossoff has led months-long bipartisan investigations into the mistreatment of military families in privatized housing and corruption, abuse, and misconduct in U.S. detention facilities and prisons.
As Chairman of the Human Rights Subcommittee, Sen. Ossoff, in collaboration with Ranking Member Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), will continue his vigorous investigative oversight to protect the human rights of all Americans.
“I look forward to working alongside Senator Blackburn to investigate abuse, misconduct, and malpractice that hurts my constituents in Georgia and Americans nationwide,” Chairman Ossoff said. “I take my obligation to conduct effective Congressional oversight seriously and will continue pursuing the truth on behalf of Georgians and all Americans.”
“There is work to be done domestically and internationally to put an end to human and sex trafficking and to support freedom fighters abroad. Human rights has long been a priority for me – from passing bipartisan legislation to protect the Hong Kong freedom fighters to ensuring citizens under totalitarian regimes have access to the internet and ending child exploitation. I look forward to partnering with Senator Ossoff on this important issue,” said Senator Blackburn.
Chairman Ossoff and Ranking Member Blackburn will be joined on the Senate Judiciary Human Rights Subcommittee by Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Peter Welch (D-VT), John Kennedy (R-LA), and Josh Hawley (R-MO).
