Many Americans were shocked after learning that classified Pentagon documents were leaked on Discord, an online platform used primarily for video game users to connect. Furthermore, when the leaker was revealed to be 21-year-old Jack Teixeira, an Airman First Class in the Massachusetts Air National Guard, the American public had even more questions. How did a young, low-ranking soldier have access to classified government information, and why did he expose U.S. intelligence information to potential adversaries when he is actively defending the country? On the Rundown, House Oversight & Accountability Committee Chairman, Congressman James Comer (R-KY), explains why he believes this leak may have taken place and how the occurrence reflects a “huge cyber security crisis” happening within the Pentagon. Later, he discusses what he hopes to learn from the House Oversight Committee’s upcoming hearing on President Biden’s 2021 withdrawal from Afghanistan and what other investigations the committee plans to prioritize in the coming months.
