Fired cyber security official calls Trump’s claims of voter fraud 'nonsense'

Christopher Krebs, the former director of the Cyber Security and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) appeared on 60 Minutes Sunday where he refuted President Trump’s repeated claims of widespread voter fraud. Trump fired Krebs, a lifelong Republican, after CISA released a statement saying that this was the most secure election in U.S. history, contradicting the president. Krebs stands by the statement released by CISA, and called any claims of voter fraud, rigged voting machines, and any other allegation made by Trump or his legal team, nonsense and a hoax. He went a step further when speaking about the recent press conference held by Trump’s lawyers, at which they made numerous allegations of fraud.

“It was upsetting because what I saw was an apparent attempt to undermine confidence in the election. To confuse people. To scare people.” Krebs said of the press conference. He later added, “What it was actively doing was undermining democracy. And that’s dangerous.”
