Biden Team Will Warn Nation About Electoral Security Issues

Linkedin Share

Over the course of the last two years, a large number of Americans have been abjectly concerned about the way in which our electoral processes have played out, spurred on by the tumult of 2020’s presidential contest.

Some of this worry has been lambasted by the mainstream media as well, with left-leaning pundits often portraying electoral concerns as “conspiracy theories” or as attempts to somehow usurp the election itself.

Now, in 2022, President Joe Biden is getting ready to warn the nation that there truly is potential election trouble on the horizon.

Top Biden national security officials are tracking multiple threats to the nation’s election security infrastructure ahead of the midterms and are set to issue warnings, including in an internal intelligence bulletin this week, according to two people familiar with the matter.

The bulletin will lay out details of cyber threats posed by China and Russia, as well as other non-state actors, and potential physical threats to election officials in jurisdictions across the country, the people said. The warnings come as the midterm elections near and amid increasing reports of intimidation at ballot drop boxes. The people requested anonymity to talk freely about sensitive national security and election matters.

The threats could be varied.

The internal administration concerns about election threats come days after a call was held between federal officials and local law enforcement personnel about the midterms, according to one of the people familiar with the matter. Those on the call discussed the potential for violence in response to the spread of false narratives regarding the election process. Officials said election workers, including those working at polling stations, are likely to face threats and harassment from extrements both online and offline, the person familiar with the matter said.

The midterm elections are set to take place on Tuesday, November 8th, and are generating more buzz than any “off year” election in American history.
