Christopher Krebs was responsible for the federal Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency in the course of the 2020 election, which he characterized as the most secure in the country’s history. President Trump fired him yesterday, prompting a fresh torrent of claims from his media and other admirers that there’s “no evidence” of fraud and decrying Kreb’s termination.
In fact, voting irregularities and misconduct, to say nothing of simple human errors, did happen this year. As always. What remains to be determined – and proven – is whether such defrauding affects the outcome of the presidential race.
Christopher Krebs should have been removed long before now, however, for not acting on warnings his office received before the election that electronic voting systems used by 28 states were materially compromised. That failure may well have enabled massive fraud that has compromised the 2020 election, as well.
This is Frank Gaffney.
