"He is making progress and in good spirits," one of the tweets states.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy stated that he spoke with Steube and his wife Thursday.
"I informed him he will serve on the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, and he is eager to get back to work," McCarthy tweeted.
Steube, a Republican, has been in Congress since 2019.
