Trump Makes U.S. Vulnerable With Decapitation Of Cybersecurity Agency

Description:

Rachel Maddow remarks on the number of areas where CISA helps ensure the security of vital U.S. interests and how Donald Trump's firing of all of the top people at that agency exposes the U.S. to greater risk for outside malign actors. Aired on 11/18/2020.


Ben Rhodes, former deputy national security advisor under President Obama, talks about Donald Trump's lame duck staffing changes at the Pentagon and the national security risks that come with Trump installing unqualified loyalists to pursue a personal agenda at the Pentagon. Aired on 11/11/2020.
US President Donald Trump gave a speech at the White House falsely claimed to have won the 2020 US presidential election over Democrat opponent Joe Biden with millions of votes left to be counted. Many states don't begin counting absentee and early-voting ballots until polls have closed, which could account for a 'red mirage' in the vote count. Trump threatened to take his case before the Supreme Court.
President Trump fired his administration's top election security official, Christopher Krebs, who led the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency. Krebs' ouster came after the agency called the 2020 election the "most secure" in U.S. history, which the president is aggressively contradicting with unfounded claims. CBS News White House correspondent Weijia Jiang reports, and CBS News chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett joined "CBSN AM" to discuss.
