Secretary Kerry Must Rescind NATO Nomination

Congressman Turner released the following statement after all Subcommittee Chairman from both the House Armed Services Committee and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry denouncing his recent nomination of Ms. Rose Gottemoeller for the position of NATO Deputy Secretary General. 

“We believe Ms. Gottemoeller has exhibited a pattern of behavior that suggests she may have repeatedly misled Members of Congress and our NATO allies. Given the important role NATO plays in bringing stability to both Europe and North America, it is imperative to have the right individuals selected to execute this role. Ms. Gottemoeller has shown she does not posses the qualities necessary that this esteemed position requires.”

As a result of Ms. Gottemoeller’s evasiveness, Congressman Turner previously wrote to Chairman Rogers calling for Ms. Rose Gottemoeller, Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security, to testify on the record concerning issues she appears to have misrepresented to Members of Congress.
