President Donald Trump fired Christopher Krebs, the top cybersecurity official in the Department of Homeland Security, in a tweet Tuesday evening.
Krebs’ termination comes after his office released a statement Thursday which said that the 2020 elections were “the most secure in American history.” Trump called Krebs’ statement “highly inaccurate,” and said that his termination was effective immediately.
Trump said in his tweets that the election had “massive improprieties and fraud – including dead people voting, Poll Watchers not allowed into polling locations, ‘glitches’ in the voting machines which changed votes from Trump to Biden, late voting, and many more.”
“All of the states with close results in the 2020 presidential race have paper accords of each vote, allowing the ability to go back and count each ballot if necessary,” Krebs’ statement said.
“This is an added benefit for security and resilience. This process allows for the identification and correction of any mistakes or errors. There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised,” the statement said.
