    U.S. Representative Mike Coffman (CO-06) released the following statement today in regards to Attorney General Jeff Sessions: "Attorney General Jeff Sessions made a grave omission by not disclosing his meetings with the Russian Ambassador last year, including to the Senate during his confirmation hearing.

    Between Christmas and New Year’s, I led a congressional delegation to Kabul, Afghanistan, where I met with some of our soldiers, and with senior U.S. military and diplomatic leaders to discuss what progress we are or are not making in that war. What I found is alarming: First, we need to abandon the Obama administration’s false narrative that it has been able to reduce U.S. troop levels in Afghanistan, now down to 8,400, because our strategy is “working.” Quite the opposite is true; our strategy...

    Aurora Congressman Mike Coffman said if Buckley Air Force Base is not awarded new F-35 fighter jets, the base would likely lose its Air National Guard unit someday. “If we don’t get them, we will lose the runway. It’s only the fighter aircraft of the 140th Wing Colorado Air National Guard that require us to have an active runway at Buckley,” he said. “It affects the longterm health of (the) base when we’re looking at base closures.” That’s why Coffman said he spearheaded the Colorado congression...

Martin Dempsey defended his "lily pad" concept of forward bases in Anbar province but also appeared at one point to question the administration's commitment. In r... Read more
