After repeatedly likening election integrity advocates to domestic terrorists over the past two years, the Biden administration is now reportedly “tracking multiple threats” to America’s “election security infrastructure” ahead of the November midterms, and is set to issue an internal intelligence bulletin this week.
According to unnamed sources, Politico reports that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will “lay out details of cyber threats posed by China and Russia, as well as other non-state actors, and potential physical threats to election officials in jurisdictions across the country.”
The sources further stated that a phone call was recently held between federal officials and local law enforcement personnel about the “potential for violence in response to the spread of false narratives regarding the election process.”
“Officials said election workers, including those working at polling stations, are likely to face threats and harassment from extremists both online and offline,” Politico reported.
“We are now hearing reports of people surrounding ballot drop boxes, some even wearing tactical gear, and questioning people,” said John Cohen, the former counterterrorism chief at DHS.
“Are the police prepared for that? They need to be.” The former official warned, “All of this is being driven by the false narrative that the 2020 election was stolen.”
The news comes as a surprise to some critics of the Biden administration, as they’ve repeatedly informed Americans that no fraud has ever, or could ever, take place in our country with our super secure election system.

Despite evidence of voter fraud and irregularities, the Biden administration and federal election officials insist that the 2020 presidential election was not stolen.
45th President Donald Trump maintains that massive voter fraud and election crimes contributed to the ascension of his successor in 2020, and has not backed down on his claims.
Critics may suggest that Biden is using election security as a pretense to further crack down on supporters of Trump, his chief political opponent, ahead of both the midterms and the 2024 race for the White House.
