FDP Bundestag Member, Konstantin Kuhle, says Hans-Georg Maassen should be sacked - now. Hear his reasoning on #TheDay
Ending an impasse in Angela Merkel's coalition, Hans-Georg Maassen is changing jobs. The move is a compromise between Social Democrats, who demanded his removal, and conservative Interior Minister Horst Seehofer.
The coalition in Berlin has solved its crisis by promoting the disgraced domestic intelligence chief. With politics like this, Merkel and her coalition partners are promoting something else entirely, says Felix Steiner.
The interior minister will meet police and cyberdefense chiefs to seek clarity on the data breach. The Social Democrats, partners in Chancellor Angela Merkel's coalition, are demanding answers following the attack.
German media have criticized Angela Merkel's government for promoting Hans-Georg Maassen to a deputy minister role. A number of editorials pointed out that the biggest winner will likely be Germany's far-right AfD.
