Cybereason says it accepts 2020 election results after investor Mnuchin refuses to reject Trump vote lie
  • The CEO of Cybereason said he and his company accept the results of the 2020 presidential election after one of its investors, Steven Mnuchin, declined to acknowledge that ex-President Donald Trump was spreading a lie about the contest being rigged.
  • “I’m focused on our investments, our business going forward,” Mnuchin said.
  • Mnuchin and Cybereason CEO Lior Div announced that the former Treasury secretary’s new private equity firm is leading a $275 million investment in the company.
In an interview with CNBC’s “Squawk Box” on Wednesday morning, Mnuchin was asked several times to acknowledge that Trump was lying about the 2020 election. Each time, he dodged the question, attempting to change the subject to his firm’s investment in the Israeli cybersecurity company.

... After he was asked about Trump’s election lie a final time, he said he believed American democracy is working – and that he hopes Trump will think about running again.

... “Cybereason supports the 2020 election results and the Biden administration. Our connection to Liberty is not political, it is a strategic partnership designed to help us further penetrate key markets, including the government,” Div said. “Both Secretary Mnuchin and General Dunford (appointed by [President] Obama to his Joint Chiefs of Staff) are part of Liberty Strategic Capital. Secretary Mnuchin will join our Board of Directors and General Dunford is joining our Advisory Board.”

Div himself also supports the 2020 election results and the new Biden administration, a spokeswoman told CNBC.


The incident is the latest example of how companies consider whether they should be speaking out on political issues, particularly if it pertains to their investors and employees.
