Chris Krebs, former director of the Cyber Security and Infrastructure Security Agency, said there was no evidence that the voting machines had been manipulated by foreign players. Krebs’ public statement called the 2020 presidential election “the safest in American history.”.
In his first interview since his dismissal, Krebset’s 60-minute correspondent, Scott Pelley, asked if he would respond to some of the allegations of voting fraud made by the president and his team.
“Votes recorded in foreign countries,” Pelley said in an excerpt from an interview with “CBS Evening News.”
“So all the votes – in the United States all the votes in the United States count,” Krebs said. “No … I don’t understand that statement. In the United States, all votes count in the United States. Period.”
“Venezuela’s mysterious actors are spoiled by voting machines,” Pelley said.
“So again, there is no evidence that any of the machines I know have been manipulated by foreign power. Period,” Krebs said.
“Communist money from China and Cuba influenced the election,” Pelley said.
“Look, I think these are – we can continue the wolf claims about interfering in the 2020 elections, but the evidence is on the ballots,” Krebs said. “The recount is in line with the original count, and for me it is further evidence that confirms that the systems used in the 2020 elections worked as expected and that the American people must have 100% confidence in their vote.”
In the other part of the interview, Krebs said it wasn’twhen President Trump fired him.
