Fired Director Of US Cyber Agency Chris Krebs Explains Why He Says Vote Was "Most Secure In American History"

|

60 MINUTES: Chris Krebs, a lifelong Republican, was put in charge of the agency handling election security by President Trump two years ago. When Krebs said the 2020 election was the country's most secure ever, Mr. Trump fired him. Now, Krebs speaks to Scott Pelley.

"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 said. "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."

"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 just– it’s nonsense."
