The Biden administration has promised a robust response to a cyber attack that shut down a vital US pipeline, vowing to deliver an “all-hands-on-deck” effort to restore operations and avoid disruptions in the energy supply.

It comes as the temporary halting of operations on the pipeline that carries gasoline and other fuel from Texas to the northeast coast stretched into a third day.

Meanwhile, as House Republicans are push ahead with their expected ousting of Representative Liz Cheney from her leadership spot for voting to impeach Donald Trump after the Capitol insurrection, her colleague Adam Kinzinger – who also voted to impeach – compared the party to the Titanic, and warned of a “circular firing squad” over Ms Cheney’s various remarks.

In the strongest sign yet that Ms Cheney faces defeat in a party vote expected on Wednesday, the top Republican in the House of Representatives said he would back congresswoman Elise Stefanik to replace the Wyoming Republican as chair of the 212-member House Republican Conference.
