U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, the newly named Chair of the Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Personnel, pressed military officials for answers on sexual assault today during her first hearing as Subcommittee Chair and the first Senate hearing on the issue in nearly a decade.

“If you think you are achieving discipline and order with your current convening authority framework, I am sorry to say that you are wrong.  And every victim that has come in front of this committee and every story that we have heard over the weeks and months shows that we have not even begun to address this problem.”
