On Politics A.M.: Russian Hackers Grow Stealthier in 2020

Chaos is the point.

Good Friday morning. Here are some of the stories making news in Washington and politics today.

  • While United States election defenses have improved since 2016, many of the vulnerabilities exploited four years ago remain. Russian hackers and trolls are growing stealthier, taking precautions like ditching email accounts that were being tracked by Western intelligence agencies and moving to encrypted communication tools that are much harder to trace.
  • Mr. Trump asserted without evidence that a top Iranian commander killed in an American airstrike was plotting to blow up an American embassy. His unsubstantiated claim came as Democrats demanded details on the intelligence that prompted the decision to kill the commander, Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani.
  • When senior administration officials gathered in the Situation Room on Tuesday for a meeting to discuss the repercussions of the killing of Mr. Suleimani, the White House aide whose portfolio is the Middle East was notably absent: Jared Kushner.
  • The Sunrise Movement, a group of young climate activists, announced Thursday that it was endorsing Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, in another sign that left-wing advocacy groups have increasingly coalesced around his candidacy.

Today’s On Politics briefing was compiled by Isabella Grullón Paz in New York.
