Congressman Turner released the following statement urging Secretary of State John Kerry to denounce his recent nomination of Ms. Rose Gottemoeller for the position of NATO Deputy Secretary General after Senator Tom Cotton, Senator Jim Risch and Senator Marco Rubio echoed Congressman Turner’s concern.
Previously, Congressman Turner wrote a letter with all Subcommittee Chairman from both the House Armed Services Committee and the House Committee on Foreign Affairs calling on Secretary Kerry to rescind his recent nomination of Ms. Rose Gottemoeller for the position of NATO Deputy Secretary General.
“As I have stated before, Ms. Gottemoeller’s behavior suggests she may have repeatedly misled Members of Congress and our NATO allies. I am now joined by Members of the Senate asking you to rescind your nomination of Ms. Gottemoeller and put forth a new American nominee for this important position.”
As a result of Ms. Gottemoeller’s unprofessionalism, 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.
