(House Financial Services Committee, Vice Chairman of the Subcommittee on Terrorism and Illicit Finance, Monetary Policy and Trade Subcommittee, Chairman of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare)
Robert Pittenger is serving his third term in the United States House of Representatives. He represents North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District, which includes parts of Charlotte. He was defeated in the 2018 Republican primary and is now a lame duck. As Chairman of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare, Congressman Pittenger has met with hundreds of world leaders and security experts to advocate increased global cooperation in the fight against ISIS and radical Islamic jihad. To help advance these goals, Congressman Pittenger developed and has now hosted seven major forums bringing together over 600 Members of Parliament, Senators, Ambassadors, and other top officials from nearly 60 nations to discuss terrorism, terrorism financing, cyberwar, Intelligence, and security concerns with Congressional leaders and top international experts. Congressman Pittenger serves on the House Committee on Financial Services, with a special focus on supporting small businesses, community banks, and credit unions. Additional assignments include the Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit Subcommittee and the Monetary Policy and Trade Subcommittee. House Speaker Paul Ryan also appointed Congressman Pittenger to his third term on the Congressional-Executive Commission on China, which monitors human rights in China. His last major project before leaving office is a bill that would reform the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States.
