OpsLens Video

As yet another IT staffer associated with an elected American politician faces scrutiny and investigation surrounding his role of handling classified information, it is time that Congress sends a message to the American people and those sworn to protect them that an overhaul of the vetting process is one of its highest priorities.

As more revelations about these actors’ roles and intent from the start come to light, it is clear that too much trust is given to those who have nefarious intentions. With foreign adversaries already working hard to expose our country’s secrets, violation of oaths to protect America’s secrets only makes our enemies work that much easier. It is time for elected officials to send a message and find a way to prevent the trend from continuing.
