House Intelligence Committee Chair Alerts Biden to Unspecified ‘Serious National Security Threat’

by | Feb 14, 2024

The House Intelligence Committee chair has issued a veiled caution regarding a “significant national security concern,” hinting at potential collaboration with “our allies” to address it. Representative Mike Turner referenced undisclosed “information” regarding the enigmatic threat, indicating that “all members of Congress” had received briefings on the matter. He now urges Biden to declassify the information for wider scrutiny.

A Democratic source, speaking anonymously to NBC News, emphasized the gravity of the situation, characterizing it as a potential foreign threat with the potential to induce destabilization and pose a national security risk. However, beyond labeling it as a “potential foreign threat,” the source refrained from offering additional specifics.
