Average rating



Scott Gordon Perry (born May 27, 1962) is an American politician and retired U.S. Army National Guard Brigadier General. He is the U.S. representative for Pennsylvania's 10th congressional district. His district numbered the 4th district from 2013 to 2019, including Harrisburg, York, and most of the inner suburbs. Perry serves on the House Transportation, Infrastructure, and Foreign Affairs Committees.

A member of the Republican Party, Perry represented the 92nd district in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives from 2006 to 2012 and served on the Committees on Appropriations, Consumer Affairs, Labor Relations, Veterans Affairs, Emergency Preparedness, and Rules. He is a retired Pennsylvania Army National Guard Brigadier General. In November 2021, Perry was elected chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, the most conservative House Republican group. He is also a member of the Congressional Veterans Caucus and the Second Amendment Caucus.

On December 20, 2021, the House committee investigating the January 6 Capitol attack called for an interview with Perry, the first time it publicly sought to question a sitting member of Congress. Perry declined the request the next day. The panel's chairperson said it had evidence from several witnesses that Perry had "an important role" in efforts to install Assistant Attorney General Jeffrey Clark as acting attorney general as part of attempts to overturn the 2020 United States presidential election. According to the committee, Perry introduced President Donald Trump to environmental lawyer Jeffrey Clark. 

The committee subpoenaed Perry on May 12, 2022, and Perry declined to participate, citing legal authority. After the November 2022 elections, the committee referred Perry to the House Ethics Panel for refusing their subpoena; it is unclear whether the panel will support any action.
