In front -- Twitter handle asked.
Immunity by and see we're talking about the use of the executive order you heard gestured represented Johnson saying that -- concerns he doesn't like the way that this can get -- ran.
Right through congress and he also feels that a lot of the information that would otherwise come into play here and be useful to the nation in terms of -- defending against cyber attacks will fall by the wayside.

That it should have the input of congress in both houses.
