Trump Fires DHS Director Chris Krebs
PRESIDENT TRUMP FIRES TOP DHS ELECTION MONITOR CHRIS KREBS BY TWEET
(CNN) – President Donald Trump has fired a Department of Homeland Security official who rejected his claim of widespread voter fraud.
He announced the firing of Chris Krebs on Twitter.
Sources say Krebs, who served as the director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency learned that he’d been fired from the president’s tweet.
Leading up to the election; Krebs had been quietly disputing the president’s false claims about mail-in ballots.
And then hours before his termination, Krebs tweeted any allegations that election systems were manipulated are incoherent and unsubstantiated.
Still, the president has been pushing baseless claims that his second term is being stolen from him.
Since CNN and other news outlets have called the race for president-elect Joe Biden, president Trump has refused to accept the results.
