Maybe you have heard the statement from the DHS Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) that the 2020 presidential election was “the most secure in American history.” If you have, take it with a grain of salt.
According to the authors, CISA has no capacity to know any such thing. CISA’s only function is advisory. It has no authority, no jurisdiction , and no ability to monitor or investigate anything.
This might explain why President Trump fired CISA’s director, Chris Krebs, earlier this week. It is entirely reasonable to fire high-level officials who make unsupportable public statements.
