GOP Senators Break From Trump After He Fires DHS Official Who Debunked Election Fraud Claims


Republicans instantly jumped to defend DHS official Chris Krebs, who was fired by Donald Trump through Twitter on Tuesday evening.

GOP Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska stated Krebs “did a very good job” and “clearly shouldn’t be fired.”

Sen. Richard Burr, Republican of North Carolina, launched a press release saying Krebs did “a exceptional job” and praised his work to “strengthen our election infrastructure.”

Ohio Republican Sen. Rob Portman, all the time reluctant to fall out of step with Trump, praised Krebs.

The fast response from GOP officers to reward Krebs will probably be considered by Trump as an oblique assault on him.

Krebs spoke out shortly after being fired

Chris Krebs himself spoke out on Tuesday evening after Donald Trump fired him, saying in a tweet, “We did it proper.”

Krebs’ firing comes after the CISA – an company underneath the DHS that Krebs led – launched a press release final week that basically debunked Trump’s election fraud lies, saying the company discovered “no proof that any voting system deleted or misplaced votes, modified votes, or was in any manner compromised.”

“The November third election was essentially the most safe in American historical past,” the CISA declared.

That discovering didn’t align with Trump’s effort to forged doubt over the election outcomes, so Krebs was fired.

Firing folks may make Donald Trump really feel higher and perhaps much more highly effective coming off a humiliating election defeat, however it’s not going to vary the end result of the race.

Joe Biden would be the subsequent president of the US, regardless of how onerous Trump and his GOP loyalists try to overturn the outcomes – and regardless of how many individuals the outgoing president fires.
