Hensarling Condemns String of Suspicious Packages


Washington, October 24, 2018 -

House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) issued the following statement strongly condemning the string of suspicious packages sent to public officials and CNN today.

“These explosive devices were not just aimed at government officials and news organizations but they were aimed, profoundly and disturbingly, at our American democracy. All of us, from across America’s vast political spectrum, must condemn these attempts at political terror and intimidation in the strongest terms. This is America. We solve our political differences at the ballot box. Those who oppose our views are just that, opponents, not enemies, and they share in common the title of American citizen.”
