Multiple sources to a political President Donald Trump's national security team is weighing the elimination of the top White House cybersecurity job.
The move would come as the nation faces growing digital threats from adversaries such as Russia and Iran.
According to one current and two former U.S. officials with direct knowledge of the discussions,
John Bolton is Trump's hawkish new national security adviser.
He's leading the push to abolish the role of special assistant to the president and cybersecurity coordinator.
The role is currently held by the departing Rob Joyce.
The sources spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of deliberations about internal White House operations.
