As the impeached, one-term president who lost the popular vote twice ranted on Twitter about election fraud and a stolen election, his Department of Homeland Security released a joint statement saying that the elections were fair and that there was no basis for claims of voter fraud. For that, Donald Trump fired Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Chris Krebs via Twitter on Tuesday night.
In that statement, signed by members of the Elections Infrastructure Government Coordinating Council and the Election Infrastructure Sector Coordinating Executive Committees, said that the 2020 presidential elections were “the most secure” in American history.
‘When states have close elections, many will recount ballots. All of the states with close results in the 2020 presidential race have paper records of each vote, allowing the ability to go back and count each ballot if necessary. 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.’
Since this runs counter to Trump’s claims that he didn’t really lose the 2020 presidential election despite the fact that his challenger won 306 electoral votes and nearly five million more votes nationwide, Trump did what he always does to those who disagree with him.
Apparently, Krebs isn’t bothered by the firing, saying “we did it right.” For telling the truth, he lost his job. But at least he can sleep well at night.
Twitter offered their support to Krebs. Read some of their comments below:
