Trump’s campaign lawyer Joe DiGenova implicitly called for the execution on Monday of former Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency director Chris Krebs for having the temerity to say that the 2020 election were “the safest in the history of the United States.”
DiGenova, a former US lawyer who is now a member of President Trump’s “elite strike force” seeking to overturn President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory, appeared on pro-Trump host Howie’s Newsmax program Carr Monday afternoon to reinforce the president’s baseless claims about widespread electoral fraud.
Towards the end of a generally lopsided segment in which diGenova baselessly alleged the election was rigged while insisting that Trump’s futile legal challenges would stop Biden’s inauguration, the conversation shifted to Krebs and his recent 60 minutes appearance.
The former cybersecurity chief, who was sacked earlier this month for failing to support Trump’s ‘stolen’ election narrative, reiterated in an interview on Sunday night that the 2020 election was safe and that ‘no votes were reversed, prompting the president to tweet in anger. former administration official.
“Anyone who thinks the election went well, like that idiot Krebs, who was once the head of cybersecurity,” diGenova growled before Carr brought up the issue. 60 minutes interview.
“This guy is a Class A jerk,” DiGenova growled in response, without a hint of irony or sarcasm. “It should be drawn and quartered. Went out at dawn and shot. “
Carr’s only response to her guest’s violent call for action was an awkward laugh. He then quickly moved on to another question before concluding the interview a moment later.
Aside from a story of peddling baseless plots in the service of the president, DiGenova is also known for her exaggerated and inflammatory rhetoric. The occasional Fox News guest saw his appearances on the conservative-leaning network dry up after he tampered with anti-Semitic tropes while attacking liberal philanthropist George Soros.
DiGenova’s deranged and dangerous remarks follow several lawmakers and election officials, many of whom are Republicans, who have received death threats for not playing with Team Trump’s attempts to steal the election. Georgian Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who voted for Trump, has been attacked by the President and other Republicans for defending his state’s voting process and has been threatened on several occasions.
