Former Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Director Chris Krebs on Sunday emphatically defended the security of the 2020 election in the wake of his firing by President Trump, as the president slammed the report on Twitter and claimed that U.S. election security is an "international joke."
Krebs appeared on CBS News' "60 Minutes" just under two weeks after his unceremonious removal from his job. At the time of the firing, Trump said in a tweet that a claim Krebs made defending America's election security was "highly inaccurate." In that tweet, Trump claimed "that there were massive improprieties and fraud – including dead people voting, Poll Watchers not allowed into polling locations" and more.
The firing drew immediate backlash from many in Congress, including Republicans, and from Krebs himself, who has repeatedly reiterated in online comments that there is "still no evidence that election systems and votes were manipulated." He doubled down on those claims on Sunday.
"There is no foreign power that is flipping votes. There's no domestic actor flipping votes. I did it right. We did it right. This was a secure election," Krebs said.
