The executive order on cybersecurity would have commissioned a review of the federal government's defenses to cybersecurity adversaries within 60 days, according to a draft obtained by the Washington Post.
The draft of the executive order didn't mention Russia or the U.S. intelligence community's consensus that Russian officials attempted to thwart the results of the 2016 election to delegitimize Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton.
