WASHINGTON, D.C.– Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI), a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and House Armed Services Committee, today released the following statement after former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was assassinated.
“The assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is a devastating loss for the Free World. He was not only the most consequential Japanese leader in decades, but also a dedicated anti-communist who saw the current nature of geopolitical competition clearly. America mourns for his family and for our friends in Japan, and prays that the coward who shot him will be swiftly brought to justice.”
