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.I'll let three commenters on the video speak for me. First, Margit Hammer wrote "This guy gets an A+ for professionalism. He never once spoke badly of Trump, even though he had every reason and opportunity to." I second that emotion. Next, Sarah Cahoot wrote "This man did his job and did it very well. And Trump doesn’t like anyone who does their job." Well, at least anyone who does their job as written, not as Donald Trump believes it should be, which is to support his goals, including making him look good. Speaking of which, I conclude quoting comments with this one by Bryan: "Protect the Constitution not the corrupt president. Good job sir." Good job, indeed!
