ODNI to scale back election security briefings to House committees

1 year ago 31

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence is scaling back its election security briefings to the congressional intelligence committees, according to two sources familiar with the matter.

ODNI told congressional officials that it will still provide written briefings, but that they should not expect verbal, in-person briefings on the topic, according to a congressional official.

The move is likely to enrage congressional Democrats, who have long charged the Trump administration with downplaying threats to U.S. elections from foreign actors, especially Russia.

ODNI did not immediately respond to a request for comment. CNN first reported the development.
