President Trump has once again found himself at odds with someone within his own administration.
On Wednesday, the Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency. Chris Krebs sent out a tweet about election security.
Trump stated that this claim was inaccurate and he has since terminated Krebs.
Krebs was responding to a tweet by Matt Blaze regarding election fraud.
He made a first statement regarding the overall security of the election and discounted the idea that any fraud or irregularities existed…
ICYMI: On allegations that election systems were manipulated, 59 election security experts all agree, "in every case of which we are aware, these claims either have been unsubstantiated or are technically incoherent." #Protect2020 https://t.co/Oj6NciYruD

Krebs had a slew of other tweets, all defending the integrity of the election.
The last tweet, however, seemed to be the one that put Trump over the edge.
With Trump fighting so hard to prove election fraud, and there is proof of some issues, Krebs’ statement undermines his efforts, so now Krebs is gone…
…votes from Trump to Biden, late voting, and many more. Therefore, effective immediately, Chris Krebs has been terminated as Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.

Enemies in the White House
What makes Krebs’ statement so puzzling is that there is enough evidence out there right now of missed ballots and irregularities that these things clearly need to be investigated.
Computers mistakenly changed ballots, observers were not permitted into ballot counting rooms, thousands of ballots were dumped, as well as thousands of ballots now mysteriously showing up in recounts.
These may not technically be considered fraud, but they are enough to put the integrity of the election in question.
Krebs seems to be yet another anti-Trumper working within the Trump administration, something that has been the undoing of this administration from day one.
Several officials inside the administration commented anonymously about Krebs, stating, “Krebs is deeply aligned with the band of former DHS officials who have been outed as Never Trumpers, including Gen. Kelly, Kirstjen Nielsen, Elizabeth Neumann, Miles Taylor, Brian Ware, and other attention-seekers who waged a silent coup during the better half of the president’s first term.
“The time it’s taken to rid the department of such individuals shows the extent to which the president was poorly served by those who entrusted these people with such influential positions.”
That second line sums it up best… People who Trump trusted within the Republican party have betrayed him on this front horribly.
Be they Obama holdovers or recommendations from people Trump thought he could trust, this has clearly been a problem over the last four years.
It also goes to show that D.C. insiders are, first and foremost, D.C. insiders, and they cannot be trusted.
Above all else, they will protect corruption from being exposed because they all know if one house of cards comes crashing down, they all come crashing down.
