“I don’t know if I was necessarily surprised. It’s not how I wanted to go out,” Krebs told CBS’ Scott Pelley in an excerpt of an interview released Friday and set to air in full on Sunday.
“The thing that upsets me the most about that is I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to my team. And I’d worked with them for three and a half years, in the trenches. Building an agency, putting CISA on the national stage. And I love that team. And I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye, so that’s what I’m most upset about.”
The statement from Krebs’ agency, along with state and private election officials, read: “The November 3rd election was the most secure in American history. …There is no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes, or was in any way compromised.”
In his interview with “60 Minutes,” Krebs told the outlet “I stand by that” statement.
CNN and other outlets projected President-elect Joe Biden as the election winner, but Trump has not conceded the race, refusing to accept the results and instead pushing baseless conspiracies that his second term is being stolen.
