‘That press conference was the most dangerous 1hr 45 minutes of television in American history. And possibly the craziest,’ Krebs tweeted. ‘If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you’re lucky.’
Giuliani, along with lawyers Sidney Powell and Jenna Ellis, wove together a number of conspiracy theories tying boogeymen like Antifa, communists, George Soros, the Clinton Foundation and Hugo Chavez to the results of the election – claiming, of course, that Trump had actually won.
Chris Krebs, the fired director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, called Rudy Giuliani’s bizarre Thursday press conference ‘dangerous’
Chris Krebs tweeted Thursday, ‘That press conference was the most dangerous 1hr 45 minutes of television in American history. And possibly the craziest’
Rudy Giuliani oozed conspiracy theories at a Thursday press conference at the Republican National Committee, that former election security chief Chris Krebs remarked about, ‘If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you’re lucky’
Krebs, before he was fired by Trump via tweet on Tuesday, was among the government officials who came out publicly and called the election, ‘the most secure in American history.’
He was the director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency – and was a Trump appointee.
‘All of the states with close results in the 2020 presidential race have paper records of each vote, allowing the ability to go back and count each ballot if necessary,’ read the statement, signed onto by two Department of Homeland Security committees, which includes CISA.
‘There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised,’ the statement also said.
This is not what the president has been alleging as he’s launched a desperate attempt to overturn the election result.
In his tweets firing Krebs, Trump called the recent statement ‘highly inaccurate.’
President Donald Trump fired Chris Krebs Tuesday via tweet, as Krebs wouldn’t go along with Trump’s narrative that there was widespread voter fraud
Trump falsely claimed there were ‘massive improprieties and fraud – including dead people voting, Poll Watchers not allowed into polling locations, “glitches” in the voting machines which changed votes from Trump to Biden, late voting, and many more.’
Krebs, he said ‘has been terminated.’
Even some Republican Capitol Hill allies of Trump grumbled over the decision.
But Republicans, generally, have given Trump cover to file lawsuits and make wild claims about widespread fraud, despite offering congratulations to President-elect Joe Biden privately.
Polling has started to show that some of Trump’s claims are sticking.
A Monmouth University survey that came out Wednesday showed that 77 per cent of Trump supporters believed Biden’s win came fraudulently.
