TOMORROW: Rubio Chairs Hearing on Attacks on U.S. Diplomats in Cuba
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations’ Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere, Transnational Crime, Civilian Security, Democracy, Human Rights, and Global Women’s Issues, will convene a hearing entitled “Attacks on U.S. Diplomats in Cuba: Response and Oversight” tomorrow at approximately 10:00 a.m. EST. The goal of the hearing will be to establish the facts surrounding the attacks on U.S. diplomats in Cuba, and conduct oversight over the State Department’s handling of the attacks.
Following pressure from Rubio, the State Department expelled a number of Cuban operatives from the U.S. after American diplomats were forced to leave Cuba as a result of the Havana attacks. Rubio has also pushed back on the idea that the Cuban government, which tightly controls and monitors the island, denies knowing anything about the attacks that injured at least 24 American diplomatic personnel.
