Established in 2018, Cabinet-level command structure monitors US elections for fraud and foreign interference

UPDATE: This is an interesting tweet from Trump attorney Lin Wood:
Anticipating the theft of the 2020 election, President Trump signed an executive order in 2018 that created a Cabinet-level command structure for monitoring and exposing election fraud and foreign interference.
The executive order, entitled Executive Order on Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Interference in a United States Election, went largely unnoticed when Trump signed it in Sept. 2018 because the mainstream media was focused on accusing him of benefitting from “Russian election interference” to notice the steps he was taking to combat foreign election interference in general.
“I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, find that the ability of persons located, in whole or in substantial part, outside the United States to interfere in or undermine public confidence in United States elections, including through the unauthorized accessing of election and campaign infrastructure or the covert distribution of propaganda and disinformation, constitutes an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States,” the president declared.
The executive order created a procedure for how the US Cabinet, spearheaded by the Director of National Intelligence, would monitor US elections for foreign interference and, if found, how to stop the resulting fraud and the foreign actors responsible once they’re identified.
“Not later than 45 days after the conclusion of a United States election, the Director of National Intelligence, in consultation with the heads of any other appropriate executive departments and agencies (agencies), shall conduct an assessment of any information indicating that a foreign government, or any person acting as an agent of or on behalf of a foreign government, has acted with the intent or purpose of interfering in that election,” the executive order continues. “The assessment shall identify, to the maximum extent ascertainable, the nature of any foreign interference and any methods employed to execute it, the persons involved, and the foreign government or governments that authorized, directed, sponsored, or supported it.”
The executive order explains why President Trump has been so quiet lately, why there’s been high-profile firings of disloyal officials in the Pentagon and why Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have been publicly confident about the outcome of the election.
It may also explain the recent, unusual meeting between Attorney General Bob Barr and McConnell, the significance of Hunter Biden’s laptop and the following tweets by President Trump:
If it’s not happening already, expect renewed interest in finding foreign ties to voting machines.
There’s numerous foreign adversaries who would benefit from removing Trump from office, such as China which has been stalling its commitment to the phase one trade agreement it made with the president.
Ironically, by creating an atmosphere of fear of ‘foreign election interference’ during the Mueller probe, the mainstream media gave President Trump an opening to combat foreign election interference in the 2020 election.
