Congress also is expected to investigate how social media and technology companies were used to organize the rampage.

“He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding.” “These facts require immediate actions by President Trump,” he continued. A few Republicans defended him, but most others simply argued that a rush to impeach Mr. Trump without a hearing or an investigation raised constitutional questions. With Democrats controlling the House, Mr. Trump is expected to become the first American president to be impeached twice. Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington sent a letter to Mr. Trump on Sunday asking for an emergency declaration to obtain additional funding for inauguration security. On Tuesday, a federal inspector general questioned an order to deliver the estimates before Mr. Trump leaves office, after whistle-blowers warned that the rush would imperil their accuracy.

GOP Sen. Susan Collins of Maine in a new op-ed said she initially thought the Capitol siege was the work of the Iranians. "My first thought was that the Iranians had followed through on their threat to strike the Capitol," Collins, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, wrote. The mob that stormed that Capitol was mostly white and visibly pro-Trump. Supporters of US President Donald Trump enter the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, in Washington, DC. "Everyone who was a law enforcement officer or a reporter knew exactly what these hate groups were planning," Washington, DC, Attorney General Karl A. Racine told MSNBC on Friday.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The unprecedented cyber attack on U.S. government agencies reported this month may have started earlier than last spring as previously believed, a U.S. senator involved in cybersecurity said on Wednesday. Slideshow ( 2 images )U.S. investigators originally thought that the attack on government agencies and private industry targets began in March or April, including breaches of Treasury, State, Commerce and Energy Departments. “The initial burrowing in may have started earlier,” Democratic Senator Mark Warner of Virginia, who serves as Vice-Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee told Reuters in an interview. “We still don’t have for the private sector, or for that matter the public sector, any mandatory reporting” on major hacking incidents, Warner said. Although Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. government sources have said Russia is the principal suspect in the attack, Trump himself has questioned their responsibility and suggested China might be behind the attack.

WASHINGTON — Joe Biden has selected Avril Haines, who held top national security jobs under President Obama, to become director of national intelligence in the Biden administration. Having served Obama as a national security lawyer and deputy CIA director, Haines, 51, has been playing a key national security role in the Biden transition. But the DNI does not run covert operations ordered by the president — the CIA director retains that power. The Biden transition announced six different Biden cabinet picks on Monday, including Haines, "all people who keep to his promise of making sure his administration looks like America." She served as deputy CIA director from 2013 to 2017, and was the first woman to hold that office.

FILE PHOTO: U.S. Department of Homeland Security emblem is pictured at the National Cybersecurity & Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) located just outside Washington in Arlington, Virginia September 24, 2010. REUTERS/Hyungwon KangWASHINGTON (Reuters) - Lawyers for a former Department of Homeland Security intelligence chief who says he was ordered to skew intelligence to support Trump Administration political messaging have been granted high-level security clearances, one of the lawyers told Reuters on Friday. DHS approval of Top Secret clearances for two lawyers for whistleblower Brian Murphy means that the lawyers should be able to access classified materials Murphy worked on when he served earlier this year as acting DHS undersecretary for intelligence and analysis, said Mark Zaid, one of Murphy’s lawyers. Zaid said DHS is still working on a Top Secret clearance for a third Murphy lawyer. The House Intelligence Committee, led by Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff, planned to conduct a closed-door deposition of Murphy in September but postponed the session while Murphy’s lawyers awaited security clearances and Murphy sought access to documents he worked on in his previous position at DHS.

Career officials are increasingly frustrated that the delay could hurt everything from national security to economic recovery and the response to the pandemic. The problem now is the Trump administration won't let the agency officials give their books to the Biden team. A decision from her would unlock millions of dollars in federal transition funding and allow agency officials to send over their briefing books to Biden's team. That includes interviews with congressional committees, the Wall Street Journal reported, and conversations with current and former Trump officials, according to CNN. Current and former government officials say they also suspect that backchannel conversations are occurring between Biden's team and federal agency insiders.

Christopher Krebs, who led the federal government's election cybersecurity efforts, has been fired by President Donald Trump via Twitter. "I'm proud of the work we did at CISA," Krebs told NBC News on Tuesday night after the firing. He also won over state election officials from both parties, hosting national joint election security walkthroughs and persuading every state to install cyberthreat information-sharing sensors. A senior agency official called Krebs' firing "a sad day" for the agency and said he had resisted calls to echo misleading claims. Another CISA official said Krebs' being fired for refuting false claims about the election was "an absolute badge of honor."

Chris Krebs, the head of the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency, was fired by President Donald Trump on Tuesday via Twitter. Chris Krebs, the head of the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency, responded with a tweet after President Donald Trump announced via Twitter on Tuesday that he had fired Krebs. "By firing him for doing his job, President Trump is harming all Americans — who rely on CISA's defenses, even if they don't know it," King said. Sen. Richard Burr, the former Republican chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, released a statement on Krebs' firing but did not outright criticize it. Sen. Ben Sasse, a Republican member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, appeared to be one of the first GOP members to condemn Krebs' firing.

Participants in the briefing included many familiar figures from the Obama-Biden national security firmament. Among them were former deputy national security advisor Tony Blinken, former CIA deputy director Avril Haines, former U.S. Also present was retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, who in 2009 resigned his post as commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan after he was quoted in a Rolling Stone article insulting then-Vice President Biden. He is also seen as someone who will prioritize alliance-building and maintaining a U.S. troop presence around the world over the isolationism and troop withdrawals that undergird Trump's national security vision. With just weeks to go before Trump leaves office, the Pentagon announced Tuesday that he had ordered a further removal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan, a decision that drew immediate criticism from top Republicans and a broad coalition of national security experts.

Spy agency ducks questions about 'back doors' in tech products

The agency declined to say how it had updated its policies on obtaining special access to commercial products. The starkest example of the risks inherent in the NSA's approach involved an encryption-system component known as Dual Elliptic Curve, or Dual EC. Researchers later determined that hackers had turned the firewalls into their own spy tool by altering Juniper's version of Dual EC. At the same time, we also noticed that the report mentioned that it was the U.S. intelligence agency - the National Security Agency - that created this backdoor technology." "Juniper does not and will not insert back doors into its products and we oppose any legislation mandating back doors."
