President Donald Trump ran out of patience with Chris Krebs, his director of CISA (Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency), and on Tuesday night fired him, as he noted in a tweet:
The recent statement by Chris Krebs on the security of the 2020 Election was highly inaccurate, in that 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.
Therefore, effective immediately, Chris Krebs has been terminated as Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.
Krebs knew it was coming. For weeks he had been denying that there was intentional fraud involved in the president election, even setting up a “Rumor Control” website that repeatedly challenged the president’s claims of fraud.
On November 12, his agency released a statement declaring that the election was “the most secure in American history”:
The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history. Right now, across the country, election officials are reviewing and double checking the entire election process prior to finalizing the result.
There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised….
While we know there are many unfounded claims and opportunities for misinformation about the process of our elections, we can assure you we have the utmost confidence in the security and integrity of our elections, and you should too.
When you have questions, turn to elections officials as trusted voices as they administer elections.
A closer look revealed that Krebs had a close relationship not only with Miles Taylor, who recently disclosed that he was the anti-Trump resistance author “Anonymous,” but also with top people at Dominion Voting Systems (DVS). It’s increasingly clear that DVS was the primary tool allegedly used to swing the election to Joe Biden.
Krebs hosted an Election Night “watch party” that was attended by two staffers of DVS. In addition, Krebs retweeted a message urging people not to circulate “wild and baseless claims about voting machines, even if they’re made by the president.”
The last straw was Krebs’ tweet on Tuesday afternoon:
ICYMI: On allegations that election systems were manipulated, 59 election security experts all agree, “in every case of which we are aware, these claims either have been unsubstantiated or are technically incoherent.”
Those “59 election security experts” apparently hadn’t learned that renowned attorney L. Lin Wood (who successfully represented “Atlanta bomber” Richard Jewell and Kentucky teenager Nicholas Sandmann) had spent a day with Trump’s top legal experts Rudy Guliani and Sydney Powell reviewing their proof of election fraud. Afterwards Wood told Newsmax TV host Howie Carr:
I’ve seen sworn affidavits, I’ve seen sworn video statements. I think that Rudy and Sidney have done a magnificent job in a short period of time of piecing together a solid legal case on what was intended to be a complicated scheme of fraud as it relates to the voting machines….
When you boil it down, it simply amounts to the fact that the United States of American was relying on voting machines that were subject to manipulation.
One of those affidavits came from a member of former Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chávez’s security detail. In it he said:
I was witness to the creation and operation of a sophisticated electronic voting system that permitted the leaders of the Venezuelan government to manipulate the tabulation of votes for national and local elections and select the winner of those elections in order to gain and maintain their power….
[The] software and fundamental design of the electronic electoral system and software of Dominion and other election tabulating companies relies upon software that is a descendant of the Smartmatic Electoral Management System.
The editorial staff at World Net Daily revealed that the CEO of Smartmatic, Antonio Mugica, admitted in an Associated Press interview in August 2017 that his company’s machines and software created at least one million votes for Hugo Chávez in Venezuela. While this alone is not proof of fraud here in America, it certainly raises suspicions and ought to be investigated further.
It was long past time for the president to rid himself of Krebs. If he ends up winning a second term, it is likely that the president will continue to clean his administration obstructionists in an effort to make certain that no presidential candidate in the future will have to face such evident and provable election fraud.
