DNI Ends Election Security Briefings For Congress

CNN reports:

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence has informed the House and Senate Select Committees on Intelligence that it’ll no longer be briefing on election security issues, a senior administration official told CNN. It’ll provide written updates, the official said.

The official added that other agencies supporting election security, including the Department of Justice, Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security, intend to continue briefing Congress.

An ODNI official defended the move Saturday, telling CNN that Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe “is committed to meeting our statutory responsibilities and keeping Congress fully and currently informed.”
