HOT F*ING SHIT! Jon Ossoff is going to be Chairman of a Senate Subcommittee!!!!!!

Sen. Jon Ossoff to chair Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations

Ossoff is the youngest to chair the committee since its inception in 1941 by then Sen. Harry Truman.

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA — Homeland Security Chairman Sen. Gary Peters said Sen. Jon Ossoff's experience as an investigative journalist attributed to his announcement on Wednesday.

Ossoff (D-Ga.) was named Chairman of the U.S. Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations by Peters.

At just 34 years old, Ossoff is the youngest to chair the committee, which was first led by Sen. Harry Truman, who investigated war profiteering from 1941-1948.

After joining the Senate, Ossoff stepped down as CEO of Insight TWI, a 30-year old investigative media production company he led since 2013.

According to a news release from Ossoff's office, under his leadership, the company produced internationally broadcast journalistic investigations of organized crime, official corruption, ISIS atrocities, war crimes committed by peacekeeping troops, corporate abuses, and human trafficking.

“As a former investigative journalist, Senator Ossoff is uniquely qualified to chair this prestigious subcommittee, which is instrumental to holding our nation’s most powerful entities accountable for wrongdoing,” Sen. Peters (D-Mi.) said. “I look forward to working with him to shed a light on fraud, financial crimes, and other kinds of malpractice whether they take place in the public or private sector.”

Ossoff said he looks forward to leading this historic committee.

3. Well Done!!!!!!!!!!! Ossoff is a Keeper For Sure

Both GA Senators deserve to have roles that showcase their leadership skills. Warnock has to run again in 2022 so Schumer needs to be sure he gets some media attention.

11. I hope he and other members can shove Ron Johnson aside and get the work done.

“This Subcommittee will pursue the truth, inform the public, and hold power to account,” Ossoff said. “I look forward to working with Ranking Member Ron Johnson of Wisconsin and my Subcommittee colleagues to serve the American public.”

26. Harry Truman became President in 1945.

In his role as examiner of war profiteering he was asked to pay no attention the funds for the Manhattan Project (about which he knew nothing) and did what he was asked.

I think we might see some real accountability this time. I expect things to look much different in ways we can't imagine right now to come up kind of quick over the next 18 months or so.

It's not like nobody was watching while all this shit went down, the whole five years, Seems like a lot of the right people in the right places at the same time is looking good for our future in some ways.

Reenergizing and revitalizing our Democratic Party.

We need as many as possible! They're the Democrats' future. And one if not more of them is likely destined for the Presidency. Nice to be developing bench strength!

I did congratulate him on his appointment, and he said thanks, he appreciated it. He is NOT an arrogant Republican who says "thanks for supporting me, now get lost." He remembers who helped get him where he is.

Georgia lucked out with him as a Senator. Let‘s hope enough of them realize it. He could easily be the next president from Georgia after Jimmy Carter in 16 years.

43. Mr. Ossoff is building himself quite a CV.

An impressive work history, a Senate seat, and now the chair of a permanent sub-committee.

All this by the age of 34.

When I was 34, I thought my big achievement was paying off my mortgage.
