This is the November 5, 2019 hearing on "Threats to the Homeland" held before the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. From the Opening Statement of Ron Johnson: "This is my ninth annual threat hearing that I have either chaired or participated in. I oftentimes say I am not the most uplifting character. I wish I could say that in those 9 years I have seen tremendous progress being made and we have reduced these threats and all is well. Unfortunately, we face the same threats. If anything, the threats are growing. I do not think 9 years ago we were talking about the modern use of drones. We were not talking about encrypted and the use of social media to the extent it is being used right now. So, we face the same threats. They are evolving. Terrorist groups are metastasizing; they are spreading around the world. And if anything, what has happened is just trying to deal with and counter those threats has grown more complex and far more difficult." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: David J. Glawe, Christopher A. Wray, and Russell Travers.
