Report: DHS Nielsen Told Not to Discuss Fresh Russian Election Interference Fears with Trump

Former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen apparently had concerns that Russia could interfere in the upcoming 2020 election…????...but according to a New York Times report, she was told by acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney that it “wasn’t a great subject” and shouldn’t be discussed with President Trump.\????While Robert Mueller’s redacted report said there was no evidence of the Trump campaign cooperating with Russian operatives…????...it did state that their interference into the 2016 election was “sweeping and systematic”.????A senior official told the Times about Nielsen’s attempts to protect the 2018 midterm elections…????...only to be resisted by the President’s national security aides who said the election was still two years away.????Sources told the Times that in a meeting Mulvaney told Nielsen that Trump…????“...still equated any public discussion of malign Russian election activity with questions about the legitimacy of his victory.”????According to CNN, Nielsen tried to organize two Cabinet meetings on election interference…????...but ultimately had to abandon those efforts due to the lack of urgency from other officials.????While appearing on CNN, California Democrat Ro Khanna called the Times’ report “concerning”...????...and said he “absolutely” wants former DHS Secretary Nielsen to testify before Congress.
