The Secure Line is packed full of goodies this week — we even broke it into segments for the first time in ages. We’ll chase the news on UK charges against Russian GRU operatives for the Novichok attack and Woodward’s book. Then we highlight a story that should have been top news: DHS says the biggest threat to the US is cybersecurity, especially regarding elections, not terrorism. Then we Deep Dive cleaning up after the Trumpster Fire in 2020. The show wraps with a headsup on news and events that are coming down the pike soon.
