Joe DiGenova, an attorney for President Donald Trump’s reelection efforts, said on Monday that Chris Krebs, the former head of U.S. cybersecurity, should be “shot” for going against the president’s conspiracy theories and declaring the 2020 elections as secure, reports Politico. “Anybody who thinks the election went well, like that idiot Krebs who used to be the head of cybersecurity,” DiGenova said on “The Howie Carr Show, “that guy is a class A moron. He should be drawn and quartered. Taken out at dawn and shot.”
DiGenova also listed a number of allegations of mass election irregularities — a phenomenon that state elections officials have agreed was not an issue — in his team’s improbable effort to extend the Trump presidency. Trump fired Krebs after the former director of the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency attested that the 2020 elections were among the safest in history. The president also lashed out against Krebs after he participated in a “60 Minutes” interview warning against the dangers of the president’s election conspiracy theories. DiGenova is part of the team of lawyers, led by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, that is fighting against the 2020 election results. DiGenova is a former U.S. Attorney in Washington, D.C.
