Chris Krebs is a Trump appointee. There was no reason for Krebs to lie when he concluded the elections were secure and fair. @realDonaldTrump fired Krebs for telling the truth. @POTUS can keep firing people, but he can’t change the fact that he lost the presidential election. https://t.co/GA3x8d3UB4

Meanwhile, Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska and a member of the Intelligence Committee issued a statement saying that the president shouldn’t have fired Krebs.
He said, “Chris Krebs did a really good job — as state election officials all across the nation will tell you — and he obviously should not be fired.”
President Trump has refused to concede to President-elect Joe Biden. The Trump campaign has mounted a legal defense to challenge the election results. Despite some setbacks in courts, the campaign’s legal defense team led by Rudy Giuliani believes there is massive fraud in the battleground states to change the outcome of the election.
“The Trump campaign has amassed a significant amount of evidence of voter fraud from the November 3rd election and we continue to collect information. We continue to do everything possible to uncover and combat this fraud, so every lawful vote is counted and every unlawful vote is not counted,” said Giuliani in a statement.
