After the latest Senate hearing, President Trump slammed the deniers of election fraud.
On Wednesday, the President tweeted that fired cybersecurity official Chris Krebs was wrong when he claimed there was no fraud. President Trump said the Senate Homeland Security Committee found widespread election-machine glitches, out of state and illegal voting and the use of phony ballots took place.
Krebs falsely claimed the 2020 election was “the most secure ever.”
However, the latest audits show Dominion Voting Machines were pre-set to switch ballots and were remotely controlled from abroad. Sen. Rand Paul also called out Krebs by saying his statement only covered safety from foreign election meddling and not domestic irregularities.
“But the fraud happened, the election in many ways was stollen, and the only way it’ll be fixed is by in the future reinforcing the laws,” Paul stated. “It was the most secure election based on the security of the internet and technology, but he never has voiced an opinion…on whether or not dead people voted, I don’t think he examined that. Did he examine non-citizens voting?”
Paul added if Krebs said it was the safest election based on “no dead people voted or no people broke the absentee roles, I think that’s false.”
