Former TX Congressman: "Power Failure Result Of Lack Of "Leadership"

Former Texas Congressman Will Hurd says the electric system failure and its serious consequences were all preventable. On NBC's Meet The Press, Hurd says the state has discussed planning for an event like what happened last week for years but nothing has been done. Hurd, a former CIA officer, says what happened in Texas brings more urgency to cybersecurity issues as well. He says the statewide system failure gives our adversaries a look at what would happen if they tried to shut down our systems with cyber attacks.
