Biden says Trump needs to publicly name who is responsible for the Solar Winds cyberattack
In a statement made Tuesday in Wilmington, Delaware, President-elect Joe Biden said President Trump must publicly identify who is responsible for the Solar Winds cyberattack. Biden said it happened on "Trump's watch when he wasn't watching." Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Attorney General William Barr have publicly stated that Russia appears to be behind the attack.
Joe Biden: Enough is enough. At a time when so much of our lives are online, cyber attacks need to be treated as a serious threat by our leaders at the highest levels. We cannot leave this unanswered. That means making it clear and public who is responsible for the attack and taking meaningful steps to hold them accountable.
Initial indications, including from Foreign Minister Pompeo, Foreign Minister and Attorney General William Barr, indicate that Russia - Russia is responsible for this violation. It certainly fits Russia's long history of ruthless, disruptive cyber activity. But the Trump administration has to make an official attribution.
This attack occurred on Donald Trump's watch when he was not watching. It remains his responsibility as President to defend American interests for the next four weeks. But rest assured, even if he doesn't take it seriously, I'll do it. Although I am disappointed with President Trump's reaction, I was pleased to see the leaders of both parties in Congress speaking loud and clear about the attack.
