Donald Trump fires official who refuted poll fraud claim

Donald Trump fires official who refuted poll fraud claim”

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

Krebs, the director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), has been on the receiving end of criticism from Trump since the November 3 election over his agency's Rumor Control blog, which invalidates a list of false conspiracy theories about a "rigged" election, many of which Trump's campaign has touted after losing the election to Democratic candidate Joe Biden.

"On allegations that election systems were manipulated, 59 election security experts all agree, in every case of which we are aware, these claims either have been unsubstantiated or are technically incoherent", Krebs wrote in a tweet from his government account.

Christopher Krebs, the head of a cybersecurity task force in charge of helping secure the 2020 presidential election, was sacked on Tuesday after publicly debunking a series of election fraud conspiracy theories pushed by President Donald Trump and other Republicans.

"I'm not going to say which party does it but thousands of votes are gathered, and they come in, and then they're dumped in a location, and then all of a sudden you lose elections that you think you're going to win", the anonymous person claimed.

Trump called the group's statement "highly inaccurate" as he announced on Tuesday that he was firing Krebs.

Trump linked Krebs's dismissal to his refusal to support Trump's voting fraud theories and terminated him with immediate effect.

While some Republicans have accepted that Joe Biden will be the next president, Trump has continued to declare he won the vote - a standoff that has delayed transition efforts by Biden.

"Honored to serve. We did it right. Defend Today, Secure Tomrorow [sic]".

Knowledge about his dismissal came to him from The President's tweet.
