Trump fires cybersecurity official who worked to secure the US election
US President Donald Trump has fired Chris Krebs, the head of the Cybersecurity and the Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the federal agency tasked with securing elections. Krebs and CISA had been commended for fending off threats by foreign and other actors during the 2020 cycle. And, Acting Defense Secretary Chris Miller has announced a major troop withdrawal in Afghanistan and Iraq to 2,500 in both countries. Plus, there's a new effort in Spain to recognize women painters who were peers of people like Pablo Picasso but don't get nearly the same attention.
