A top Republican Senator rejected an election security testimony offer from Kent Walker, Senior Vice President of Global Affairs at Google. North Carolina representative Richard Burr, the chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, was offered Mr. Walker’s testimony on Thursday but dismissed the option, his office confirmed in a statement provided to CNET. The reason for the unexpected move remains unclear, especially as the Google executive’s offer came following months of vocal displeasure from some stateside lawmakers over the manner in which the Silicon Valley is handling election interference attempts, with select legislators calling for the tech industry to do more to ensure the integrity of the upcoming mid-terms.
