Christopher Krebs, the top federal cybersecurity official who was fired by the president Donald Trump last week after saying that the last presidential election was “the safest in American history,” he said that the allegations of interference by foreign countries in this year’s election are “ridiculous.”
Krebs, former director of the Agency for Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security, made the comment in response to allegations by the president’s legal team. Donald Trump which argues baselessly that the votes were counted in foreign countries.
“It’s that all votes – all votes in the United States of America are counted in the United States of America,” Krebs said during the program “60 Minutes”, of CBS. “I don’t understand, I don’t understand this argument. All votes in the United States of America are counted in the United States of America. Point”.
The statement is part of a preview of the program that will air on Sunday, as reported The Hill.
Sidney Powell, a lawyer linked to the Trump campaign, has propagated conspiracy theories that link the late Venezuelan warlord Hugo Chávez to voting machine problems. Powell said last week without presenting evidence that the votes of the elections were manipulated abroad for the benefit of the president-elect. Joe Biden.
Krebs indicated that “there is no evidence that any machine – to my knowledge – has been manipulated by a foreign power. Point”.
