U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, issued the following statement regarding the Chinese Communist Party’s warnings against Speaker Pelosi’s possible trip to Taiwan and President Biden’s self-deterring comments. 

“Speaker Pelosi should go to Taiwan and President Biden should make it abundantly clear to Chairman Xi that there’s not a damn thing the Chinese Communist Party can do about it. No more feebleness and self-deterrence. This is very simple: Taiwan is an ally and the Speaker of the House of Representatives should meet with the Taiwanese men and women who stare down the threat of Communist China.”
