US Cyber-Chief Fired For Contradicting Trump

Washington: Top United States cybersecurity official Christopher Krebs, who helped oversee what outside experts have been calling one of the most secure US elections ever, was fired on late Tuesday by President Donald Trump.

The firing came exactly two weeks after the elections and five days after a large group of federal and state officials as well as watchdog groups and makers of election equipment issued a statement declaring that “the November 3rd election was the most secure in American history.”

Trump said in his tweet that the recent statement by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency that the election was held securely was “highly inaccurate.”

Citing no evidence, Trump claimed that there were improprieties and fraud, and that Republican poll watchers were not allowed in counting places — all assertions that have been rejected in multiple states by judges hearing challenges to the election.

On Monday, a group of 59 computer scientists and election security experts said in a statement that Trump’s claims about voter fraud and technical glitches in voting machines were “unsubstantiated or are technically incoherent.”
