ALERT: ‘Serious National Security Threat’

( – An alarming national security threat of a brand-new kind is endangering the United States, House Republicans have warned, urging the White House to reveal intelligence to the nation – while reports claim it stems from Putin’s Russia seeking to deploy nuclear weapons in space.

On Wednesday, US Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH), the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, revealed in a statement that his committee had disclosed information to all members of Congress regarding a severe national security threat.

This disclosure pointed to a “national security threat” stemming from a “destabilizing foreign military capability” of such gravity that President Joe Biden was urged to make “all information” concerning it public.

“I am requesting that President Biden declassify all information relating to this threat so that Congress, the Administration, and our allies can openly discuss the actions necessary to respond to this threat,” Turner declared.

Details were made accessible to all House members in a secure location, in line with chamber regulations, he informed.

Reacting to his statement, President Joe Biden’s National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan, tried to assuage public worries, ABC News reports.

According to two sources familiar with the discussions on Capitol Hill, the intelligence relates to Russia’s ambitions to position a nuclear weapon in space.

Moscow would aim to deploy it against US satellites rather than against Earth.

One of the sources expressed grave concern over this development, labeling it both “very concerning and very sensitive” and a “big deal.”

In response, various members of Congress swiftly acknowledged the severity of the situation.

“We are going to work together to address this matter, as we do all sensitive matters that are classified,” House Speaker Mike Johnson assured journalists at the Capitol on Wednesday afternoon.

Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT), the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, recognized the warning as “significant” yet not a reason for panic.

“As to whether more can be declassified about this issue, that is a worthwhile discussion, but it is not a discussion to be had in public,” Himes argued.

“It’s concerning,” remarked Rep. Bruce Westerman (R-AR)

National Security Advisor Sullivan said he had set up a meeting on Thursday with the Gang of Eight, the leaders of both parties in both chambers of Congress and the ranking intelligence members.

“I am confident that President Biden, in the decisions that he is taking, is going to ensure the security of the American people,” Sullivan said.
