“I recall very clearly that I was not pleased that we were not in there helping [the DNC] patch this vulnerability,” Johnson told the House Intelligence Committee.
Former Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Jeh Johnson told the House Intelligence Committee that he was not pleased that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) didn’t accept help from DHS after Russia hacked them in 2016.
Rep. Peter King (R-NY) said that he found it hard to comprehend that the DNC did not accept help from either DHS or the FBI after they had discovered a foreign adversary hacked them.
“I recall very clearly that I was not pleased that we were not in there helping them patch this vulnerability,” Johnson told King. “When you are dealing with private actors, and even political organizations, DHS does not have the power to issue a search warrant, or get a search warrant, and go in and patch their vulnerabilities over their objections.”
