Senator Collins’ Statement on DNI’s Decision to Stop Briefing Intelligence Committees on Election Security

Washington, D.C.—U.S. Senator Susan Collins, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, released this statement following the Office of the Director of National Intelligence’s decision that it will no longer brief the Senate and House Intelligence Committees on election security issues:

 

“It is unacceptable for the DNI to refuse to brief the Intelligence Committees on election security, and it runs counter to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence’s public commitment on August 7th to provide classified election threat updates.  The DNI must remain a committed partner to safeguard our elections.”
