President Donald Trump has fired Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Director Chris Krebs.

The president called the statement made by Krebs on the security of the 2020 election “highly inaccurate.”

Last week, CISA had called the presidential election the “most secure in American history.”

President Trump announced the termination in a statement on Twitter. The president noted “there were massive improprieties and fraud—including dead people voting.” He went on to list a number of other allegations, like poll watchers not being allowed into polling locations and “glitches” in voting machines.

Krebs responded in a statement: “Honored to serve. We did it right.”

The original statement released by CISA stated there is “no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.”

But many allegations claim the opposite.

Trump’s campaign has filed a number of lawsuits across multiple states. And in one state alone, the team collected more than 100 witness statements.

A hand recount in Georgia recently uncovered thousands of votes uncounted in the state’s total due to error. Other recounts are expected.

Krebs in recent days has continuously shot down allegations of voter fraud, despite these ongoing investigations.
