    The United States Intelligence Community (IC) is a group of separate United States government intelligence agencies and subordinate organizations, that work separately and together to conduct intelligence activities to support the foreign policy and national security of the United States. Member organizations of the IC include intelligence agencies, military intelligence, and civilian intelligence and analysis offices within federal executive departments. The IC is overseen by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), which itself is headed by the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), who reports to the President of the United States.

    Among their varied responsibilities, the members of the Community collect and produce foreign and domestic intelligence, contribute to military planning, and perform espionage. The IC was established by Executive Order 12333, signed on December 4, 1981, by U.S. President Ronald Reagan.

    Today, the ODNI announced that the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC) will lead all intelligence-based threat briefings to candidates, campaigns, and political organizations under the U.S. Government’s notification framework. Bill Evanina, the Director of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center, will serve as the IC’s leader to this critical effort.

    US elections are the foundation of our nation’s democracy. We are committed to supporting this Administration’s whole-of-government effort to secure the 2020 election,” said Evanina.

    This change represents an important improvement and simplification to the threat notification process. The IC will continue to work in partnership with FBI and DHS to identify and integrate threat information, and Evanina and the elections team will act swiftly to deliver the timely and thorough assessments to those affected by potential malicious influence.

    After college Evanina went to work for the General Services Administration, where he was a project manager in the new construction division. In 1996 he joined the Federal Bureau of Investigation where as a special agent he served in the violent crimes unit, the organized crime unit, and the Bank Robberies and Counterterrorism divisions. He also later served in the FBI's National Security Branch and Counterintelligence Division. He became a certified SWAT team member as well as a certified sniper. During this time he was involved with the investigation into the hijacking of United Airlines Flight 93 on 11 September 2001, the mail-distributed anthrax attacks also in 2001, and the Daniel Pearl kidnapping.

    In June 2004, he was appointed as a Supervisory Special Agent in the new Joint Terrorism Task Force. While there, following a tipoff from Customs, he led the investigation into the activities of an FBI intelligence analyst at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey, who was leaking classified information to parties in the Philippines. Evanina's work led to the conviction of Leandro Aragoncillo for espionage, in appreciation of which Evanina received the FBI Director's Award for Excellence. In January 2006 he was appointed as Senior Supervisory Resident Agent (SSRA) heading the FBI's New Jersey office in Trenton. In March 2009, he was assigned to the Washington office, and worked in the FBI's National Security Branch, where he led both counterintelligence and counterterrorism operations.

    In September 2013, Evanina was put in charge of the joint FBI and CIA Counterintelligence Division/ Counterespionage Group, where he coordinated personnel from multiple intelligence agencies in countering foreign espionage. In June 2014, he was appointed by James R. Clapper to head the office of the National Counterintelligence Executive, replacing Frank Montoya.

    After the firing of James Comey in May 2017, Evanina was under final consideration as interim director of the FBI; instead Andrew G. McCabe remained as acting director until the appointment of Christopher A. Wray in August 2017. In February 2018, President Trump formally nominated Evanina to the directorship of the National Counterintelligence and Security Center, as Congress had made the position subject to Senate confirmation as of 2015. On May 6, 2020, the United States Senate confirmed his nomination by a 84–7 vote.

    Does that mean Jacob Hornberger will get to debate Trump and Biden on national tv?
    “The right to life is the source of all rights—and the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.”

    Well, @Swordsmyth ?

    Oh well, I waited. I guess @Swordsmyth has nothing else to add to this major development that he posted.

    I still am wondering, though, if Jacob Hornberger (or another potential candidate or party), will get to debate Trump and Biden on national tv.

    Doubt the FBI will ever get out of that business for good. We could, however, make it a reality if we were to get rid of the organization entirely.
