Surfacing for the first time since President Trump fired him, Chris Krebs, the president’s former head of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), appeared on CBS’ 60 Minutes on Monday night. He continues to declare that the election results are “secure” and “reliable” and that any claims to the contrary are “nonsense and a hoax.”
He told host Scott Pelley:
I have confidence in the security of this election because I know the work that we’ve done for four years in support of our state and local partners. I know the work that the intelligence community has done, the Department of Defense has done, that the FBI has done, that my team has done. I know that these systems are more secure. I know based on what we have seen that any attacks on the election were not successful….
There was no manipulation of the vote on the machine count side. And so 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.
One of those claiming that it’s not nonsense is Brett Tolman, a former U.S. attorney for the District of Utah. He’s looked at the available data and concluded:
I struggle with conspiracy theories, and I’m very doubtful of them to begin with. I’ve put to rest several theories before in my career but this is something that you’re looking at and you participated in, each of us did, and we saw such unusual results and something going on behind the scenes….
This has the earmarkings of someone [Krebs] going public in order to try to change the narrative from what all of us lived through and observed in that election.
Krebs’ claims didn’t resonate with Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul either. The day before Krebs repeated the canard on 60 Minutes, Paul noted four “data dumps” that turned the election to Biden during the early morning hours of November 4. Paul tweeted: “Interesting … Trump margin of ‘defeat’ in 4 states occurred in 4 data dumps between 1:23-6:31 AM [on Wednesday, November 4]. Statistical anomaly? Fraud? Look at the evidence and decide for yourself.”
Many have looked and learned about that “statistical anomaly” published by Vote Pattern Analysis on November 24. They summarized their findings:
Our analysis finds that a few key vote updates in competitive states were unusually large in size and had an unusually high Biden-to-Trump ratio….
These vote updates are outliers of the outliers:
An update in Michigan listed as of 6:31AM Eastern Time on November 4th, 2020, which shows 141,258 votes for Joe Biden and 5,968 votes for Donald Trump;
An update in Wisconsin listed as 3:42AM Central Time on November 4th, 2020, which shows 143,379 votes for Joe Biden and 25,163 votes for Donald Trump;
A vote update in Georgia listed at 1:34AM Eastern Time on November 4th, 2020, which shows 136,155 votes for Joe Biden and 29,115 votes for Donald Trump; and
An update in Michigan listed as of 3:50AM Eastern Time on November 4th, 2020, which shows 54,497 votes for Joe Biden and 4,718 votes for Donald Trump.
These “data dumps” turned the election in those four states which collectively represent 42 Electoral College votes. In other words, without them Trump would clearly be headed for a second term.
As more and more evidence surfaces from groups such as Vote Pattern Analysis, the more Krebs’ posturing in front of the establishment cameras is revealed for what it is: a deliberate intent to distract from the reality of massive vote fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
