This is the July 12, 2018 "Hearing on Nicaraguan Crisis: Next Steps to Advancing Democracy and Markup on H. Res. 981, Condemning the Violence, Persecution, Intimidation, and Murders Committed by the Government of Nicaragua Against Its Citizens" held before the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the opening statement of Paul Cook: "For too long, Daniel Ortega has ruled Nicaragua through fear and intimidation, undermined democracy, and enriched himself through systemic corruption. [...] The crisis in Nicaragua is also threatening regional trade, business operations, and the safety of Americans living in Nicaragua. [...] Nicaragua remains the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere after Haiti, and Transparency International ranks Nicaragua as one of the region's most corrupt countries, along with Venezuela and Haiti. [...] In view of these actions and today's crisis in Nicaragua, we were holding this subcommittee hearing and markup of House Resolution 981 to examine recent developments and conduct oversight of the administration's policy to Nicaragua." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Carlos Trujillo, Michael Kozak, and Barbara Feinstein.
