Almost two hours after news broke Friday that President Donald Trump decided to part ways with White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy — at least at that moment — had another topic on his mind.
He retweeted a message that the chief executive sent out Friday morning, before Bannon’s ouster was reported, about elevating the country’s Cyber Command. McCarthy called it “the right move.”
This is the right move. Our cybersecurity operations need a comprehensive and unified approach at the highest levels. https://t.co/3KebJY5p5x— Kevin McCarthy (@GOPLeader) August 18, 2017
