The U.S. House of Representatives warned of a serious threat to national security. This information was also confirmed by U.S. President's National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, writes Jeff Seldin, a Voice of America correspondent.

Sullivan said a briefing with key lawmakers is scheduled for tomorrow

"I'm not in position to say anything else," he said.

He also said the current White House administration has gone further and taken more creative and strategic approaches to declassifying intelligence in the national interest of the United States than any other administration in history.

"I'm confident that President Biden, in the decisions that he is taking, is going to ensure the security of the American people going forward," Sullivan said.

He also added that he believes in the possibility of protecting the national security of the United States.

Aid to Ukraine

On February 13, the U.S. Senate approved a draft law on aid to Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan for $95 billion. In particular, more than 60 billion dollars have been earmarked for Ukraine.

In order for the bill to enter into force, it still needs to be approved by the U.S. House of Representatives and signed by President Joe Biden.

Speaker of the House of Representatives Mike Johnson spoke against such an initiative. He may not bring the bill to the lower house of Congress. In turn, President Joe Biden called on the House of Representatives to urgently approve the bill.
