“Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other top House Democrats admonished the country’s top counterintelligence official during a closed-door election security briefing Friday, accusing him of keeping Americans in the dark about the details of Russia’s continued interference in the 2020 campaign,” Politico reports.
“Pelosi hinted at the conflict upon emerging from the briefing Friday morning, saying she thought the administration was ‘withholding’ evidence of foreign election meddling. Multiple sources who attended the briefing told Politico that both Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) chastised William Evanina, the director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center, for issuing a statement last week warning the public of election interference by China, Russia, and Iran. Democrats have described the statement as so vague as to be ‘almost meaningless.’”Save to Favorites
