    "...Chris Krebs' deputy, Matt Travis, has also RESIGNED tonight after White House made clear to him he would not be taking the helm of the agency. Brandon Wales, a career official and the third-highest ranking official at CISA, is expected to now serve as acting director."

    "KREBS specifically created the #3 post and placed Wales there in case the White House tried to fire CISA leadership and install politial, unqualified leaders, sources tell me. Wales is well respected at CISA and cares about election security, according to multiple colleagues."
