WATCH: Fired Director of US cyber agency says 2020 election was “most secure in American history”

Appearing on 60 minutes, Chris Krebs, the former director of the agency handling election security defended the integrity of the 2020 Presidential election.

Krebs argued, “paper ballots give you the ability to audit, to go back and check the tape and make sure that you got the count right.”

He added “that’s really one of the keys to success for a secure 2020 election. 95% of the ballots cast in the 2020 election have paper ballots.”

He continued “that gives you the ability to prove that there was no malicious algorithm or hacked software that adjusted the tally of the vote.”

“That pretty thoroughly, in my opinion, debunks some of these sensational claims out there that I’ve called nonsense and a hoax, that there is some hacking of these election vendors and their software and their systems across the country. It’s…it’s nonsense,” he added.

In response to Krebs’s appearance, President Trump tweeted Sunday “@60Minutes never asked us for a comment about their ridiculous, one-sided story on election security, which is an international joke. Our 2020 Election, from poorly rated Dominion to a Country FLOODED with unaccounted for Mail-In ballots, was probably our least secure EVER!”
