White House, Team Boehner Trade Barbs on Cybersecurity (Video)
The White House says Congress hasn’t “done a single thing” to stop cyberattacks; House GOP leadership begs to differ.
On Friday, in the wake of revelations that a major cybersecurity breach of records at the Office of Personnel Management compromised personal information of millions of current and former federal employees, White House press secretary Josh Earnest put the onus on Capitol Hill to pass legislation to prevent future episodes. “The fact is, we need the United States Congress to come out of the dark ages and actually join us here in the 21st century to make sure we have the kind of defenses that are necessary to protect a modern computer system,” Earnest told reporters. “We have not seen that kind of action in the United States Congress.”
