Trump Attorney Calls For Former Cybersecurity Chief To Be Executed For Saying Election Was Fair

Donald Trump’s campaign lawyer and former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova was interviewed by the far-right news channel Newsmax this week where he called on fired Trump cybersecurity chief Chris Krebs to be executed for saying that the 2020 election was “the most secure in United States history.

According to The Bulwark, diGenova took potshots at Krebs during a wheels-off segment full of false claims about how the election had been “rigged.”

“Anybody who thinks the election went well, like that idiot Krebs who used to be the head of cybersecurity [for Trump]. That guy is a class A moron. He should be drawn and quartered. Taken out at dawn and shot,” diGenova said.

The Bulwark reported, “DiGenova’s execution wishcasting comes on the heels of a Krebs interview with 60 Minutes in which he debunked the Trump team’s outlandish and conspiratorial claims about the election. Krebs is a lifelong Republican who Trump put in charge of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, which had oversight of election security. (Trump fired Krebs via tweet.)”

Trump expressed his support of DiGenova on Twitter on Nov. 14.

“I look forward to Mayor Giuliani spearheading the legal effort to defend OUR RIGHT to FREE and FAIR ELECTIONS!” Trump tweeted. “Rudy Giuliani, Joseph diGenova, Victoria Toensing, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis, a truly great team, added to our other wonderful lawyers and representatives!”
