WASHINGTON — The chairman of the House Armed Services Committee Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Ala.) said Aug. 3 he is launching an investigation into the Biden administration’s decision to keep U.S. Space Command’s headquarters in Colorado.
President Biden earlier this week overturned the Trump administration’s recommendation to move U.S. Space Command from Colorado Springs to Huntsville, Alabama.
Rogers said he would fight back. His first move was to send a letter to Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall and to the head of U.S. Space Command Gen. James Dickinson, demanding transcripts of interviews and other documents related to Space Command’s basing decision, and threatening to subpoena these documents if they are not provided to the HASC.
In a letter Aug. 3, Rogers claims Kendall and Dickinson have failed to respond to his committee’s repeated requests for these documents.
