INVESTIGATE: Trump fires election security director for contradicting him

INVESTIGATE: Trump fires election security director for contradicting him

Christopher Krebs, the leader of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, was determined to debunk baseless claims about the 2020 election and restore faith in our democracy. So President Trump fired him.

Trump clearly wants to spread dangerous disinformation unchecked and silence anyone who opposes him. Congress must not let him -- our representatives need to investigate the president’s firing of Krebs.

Why is this important?

Despite Trump’s futile attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election, Christopher Krebs -- director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) -- remained committed to giving the American people the truth.

He reassured voters that the 2020 election was “the most secure in American history” -- and that there isn’t a shred of evidence that voting systems were compromised. [1]

Krebs didn’t do this as Republican or Democrat. He did it as a national security official -- and as someone who understands that our foreign adversaries’ primary goals are to sow chaos and chip away at faith in our institutions. Krebs was reaffirming the facts.

But that didn’t fit with the ludicrous narrative that Trump is spinning -- so the president fired him.

That’s outrageous. Krebs was simply doing his job -- defending the integrity of this free and fair election and maintaining voters’ faith in our democracy.

Plus, Trump's selective firing of national security officials who contradict him puts all of us at risk. Especially because Krebs’ former agency also oversees critical infrastructure from other sectors, like nuclear power plants and chemical storage facilities.

Congress must investigate this sudden and abhorrent decision -- which jeopardizes our national security and the integrity of our democracy. If you agree, add your name now.
