(TruthAndLiberty.com) – The special counsel’s office has asked for more information regarding a White House briefing that occurred on Feb. 14, 2020, during which federal officials had told then-President Donald Trump that all of the U.S. election systems were completely secure.
Three different sources interviewed by special counsel Jack Smith’s office spoke about the meeting with Trump, while two of the sources were actually present during the White House meeting.
The briefing included officials from many different agencies, including the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the FBI, and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). During the meeting, the three agencies have spoken about how difficult and unlikely it was for the results of the U.S. election to be meddled with or changed.
At the time, Trump had appeared to be open to the message and had even stated that they should hold a news conference to inform the public about this. However, that news conference was never held according to two sources. The two sources also revealed that since May they had been interviewed by the special counsel as part of the investigation into Trump’s attempts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
Chris Krebs, the director of CISA, who was also interviewed by the special counsel’s office, placed his focus on the U.S. election infrastructure and the mechanisms that were in place to stop interference with the election process as well as to block others from attempting to hack into the voting system. The agency had also put out a “rumor control” website which was used to debunk many of the unfounded election claims made by former President Donald Trump after the 20202 presidential election.
