Christopher Krebs: Trump Fires Cybersecurity Chief Who Debunked His Vote Fraud Theories

Christopher Krebs Ousted Election Security Chief Calls Giuliani Presser ‘Most Dangerous’ Television in US History Wiki Commons DHS

Trump, who hired Krebs himself, in true fashion turned to Twitter to make the termination known, in a move that seemed extremely Sith-like.

"Therefore, effectively immediately, Chris Krebs has been terminated as Director of Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency". However, as the president continued to repeat dangerously misleading information about the security of the election, the agency's focus turned to rebutting numerous rumors and baseless allegations of widespread voter fraud that Trump had promoted from the White House.

Fired Department of Homeland Security cyber security honcho Christopher Krebs on Thursday denounced as "dangerous" charges by President Donald Trump's legal team challenging the results of the 2020 election.

"There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised", said the statement, which is based on an assessment joined by a coalition of election security groups, including the National Association of State Election Directors.

"Translation: The recent statement by Chris Krebs was highly accurate, in that there were no improprieties or fraud, confirmed by all credible 2020 Election officials sworn under oath to be truthful. Don't buy it. And think 2x before sharing", Christopher Krebs, the former head of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), wrote on Twitter.

Joe Biden declared victory for the US presidential election on November 7 after he was projected to have passed the required 270-electoral-vote threshold.

"When states have close elections, many will recount ballots".

Soon thereafter, Krebs tweeted from his private Twitter account, "Honored to serve".

"We did it right", he added. "Defend Today, Secure Tomrorow [sic]".

Krebs shared one tweet by Hammill that claimed Krebs was sacked "for refusing to lie" to the president.

Election officials from both political parties as well as worldwide observers have confirmed that there have been no serious irregularities in the 2020 United States presidential election.

The Chief of CISA staff Emily Early informed that Krebs' last day with the agency would be Tuesday.

"Instead of rewarding this patriotic service, the president has fired Director Krebs for speaking truth to power and rejecting Trump's campaign of election falsehoods", she said in a statement this week.
