Washington, DC – Today, Partnership for a Secure America (PSA) welcomes Secretary Jeh Johnson as a member of the organization’s renowned bipartisan Advisory Board. Johnson served as the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security from December 2013 to January 2017. He is widely recognized for his pragmatic leadership and is credited with building a more effective, cohesive DHS.
Prior to leading the Department of Homeland Security, Secretary Johnson served as General Counsel to the U.S. Department of Defense from 2009-2012 where he was a primary legal architect of the Obama administration’s military counterterrorism mission. From 1998 to 2001, Johnson was General Counsel of the U.S. Air Force under the Clinton Administration.
By joining the PSA Advisory Board, Johnson becomes the 23rd member of this distinguished bipartisan group.
“I am honored to join PSA’s Advisory Board,” said Johnson. “Bipartisanship is crucial to overcoming the challenges we currently face to our national security. These challenges are not partisan and solving them demands significant collaboration across the aisle. I very much believe in PSA’s mission and look forward to supporting PSA’s efforts to promote bipartisan solutions.”
“We are pleased to welcome Secretary Johnson to the PSA Advisory Board,” said Nathan Sermonis, PSA Executive Director. “Secretary Johnson’s extensive experience, notable leadership, and commitment to bipartisanship will bring new insight to our mission, and we look forward to working together.”
PSA is a nonprofit founded by former U.S. Representative Lee Hamilton (D-IN) and the late U.S. Senator Warren Rudman (R-NH) to promote bipartisanship on foreign policy and national security issues facing the country today. Utilizing the leadership of its Advisory Board, PSA has unique credibility and experience to generate space for thoughtful discussion and craft effective policy that advances America’s national interests.
