Kaine Statement On Navy Secretary Spencer

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tim Kaine, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement on the resignation of Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer: 

“Throughout my work with Secretary Spencer, I’ve known him to be a good man, a patriotic American, and an effective leader. He joins Generals Mattis and McMaster as national security leaders who served our country well despite having to work under an unethical Commander in Chief who lacks an understanding of what makes America great. We have many unanswered questions about Secretary Spencer’s departure. The Senate Armed Services Committee must fully investigate what happened to ensure accountability.”
