Trump fires top US cybersecurity official Chris Krebs for debunking false election claims Zack Whittaker @zackwhittaker 8 hours

Shortly after Trump announced his canning of Krebs via (what else) a tweet, Krebs used his personal, verified Twitter account to let both the world and Trump know that the agency he previously led did, in fact, oversee a secure election.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday fired Christopher Krebs, the head of the Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, for refuting the president's claims that the general election was rigged in favor of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. The lengthy spectacle included a mind-boggling quantity of baseless claims, as well as an elaborate theory that a series of nefarious actors - from George Soros to Hugo Chavez and Hillary Clinton - conspired to steal the election from Trump.

U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday that Chris Krebs has been terminated as director of the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) over the official's recent statement on the security of the 2020 presidential election.
