Chairman Schiff Statement on President Biden’s Decision to Withhold Military Aid from Egypt

“For far too long, we have failed to hold regimes who commit grievous human rights abuses accountable. Withholding a significant portion of military aid from Egypt due to the country’s continued mistreatment of its own citizens is an appropriate step, and we must follow through when it comes to protecting fundamental freedoms and democracy. The United States has a moral obligation to demand justice for detained U.S. citizens, journalists and activists, and other political prisoners. The Biden administration and Congress must be prepared to take further action to curtail military aid to Egypt if we do not see concrete steps to address our concerns.”
