Chris Krebs gets the boot, seems to have done his job, Trump didn’t like that too much

Krebs on Security reports that Christopher Krebs, the head of CISA, who reported over the past weekend that there seemed to be no major interference from outside influencers has been fired from his job.

I’m not going to say there was absolutely no interference, however, in my opinion from what I’m reading, there wasn’t anything from your suspects that might do this type of thing. The interference was more concentrated and in certain states if there was at all.

While the states grapple with determining if everything is OK, we’ll just have to wait and see what eventually happens.

Krebs, 43, is a former Microsoft executive appointed by Trump to head the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), a division of the U.S.
Department of Homeland Security. As part of that role, Krebs organized federal and state efforts to improve election security, and to dispel disinformation
about the integrity of the voting process.

Krebs’ dismissal was hardly unexpected. Last week, in the face of repeated statements by Trump that the president was robbed of re-election by buggy voting
machines and millions of fraudulently cast ballots, Krebs’ agency rejected the claims as “unfounded,” asserting that “the November 3rd election was the
most secure in American history.”

This was covered in an article I talked about as part of Sunday’s independent show, and we posted on the blog. Find that blog post right here.

I’m sure that every year, the election gets some sort of interference and it isn’t talked about. While this isn’t necessarily surprising in the trump era, let’s hoe that if Joe gets in, that he sees the type of work that Mr. Krebs has done. Being transparent and trying to be open about what they’re finding may have cost his job, and that is sad.
