Trump Fired His Cyber Security Chief For Disputing Election Fraud Claims

Cyber Security | December 14, 2020

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any stranger… Donald Trump has fired his cybersecurity chief, Christopher Krebs, after he debunked Trump’s election fraud claims.

Trump has been tweeting for angrily for a couple of weeks, about what he perceives to be voter fraud and even claiming he won. He’s also sharing tweets with the information he hopes will reverse the calls for Biden.

The Radical Left Democrats, working with their partner, the Fake News Media, are trying to STEAL this Election. We won’t let them!

Wow! Michigan just refused to certify the election results! Having courage is a beautiful thing. The USA stands proud!

Trump then tweeted that he had fired his chief of cybersecurity. In it, he claims that Krebs made a “highly inaccurate” statement, insisting again that there were instances of fraud and improprieties.

…votes from Trump to Biden, late voting, and many more. Therefore, effective immediately, Chris Krebs has been terminated as Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.

Like many of Trump’s tweets of late, Twitter has added a notification stating that his claims are disputed.

The tag has turned into a meme over the last few days, of people posting to make their own tweets look disputed.

Krebs spoke to NBC News on Tuesday night after the firing: “I’m proud of the work we did at CISA… I’m proud of the teammates I had at CISA. We did it right.”

The statement that upset Trump came from CISA, the Election Assistance Commission and other officials, a section of which said: “There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.”

Are you surprised at the firing?
