GOP lawmaker: Trump implementing a 'loyalty purge' amid firing of top cybersecurity official

Source: The Hill

GOP Congressman Adam Kinzinger (Ill.) said on Wednesday that President Trump is implementing a “loyalty purge” in the White House after the firing of top U.S. cybersecurity official Christopher Krebs.

In an interview on CNN’s New Day, Kinzinger said Krebs was doing his job and defending the security of the elections.

“Chris Krebs said the election is secure … and of course, that is counter to what the president is trying to say,” Kinzinger said. “There’s like a loyalty purge going on in the last month of the White House.”

The president, who has refused to accept his loss to former Vice President Joe Biden, said on Twitter that Krebs was terminated “effective immediately.” He alleged that a recent statement about the security of the election was “highly inaccurate” and baselessly claimed that “there were massive improprieties and fraud — including dead people voting.”

1. I don't care what the rules and regulations are, Joe Biden needs to announce

he is firing all of the Trump moles. These are irrefutably dishonest, bad-faith hires and efforts to sabotage the new administration. No way can they stay embedded in our institutions.

Nope.

6. Good point

It's not like these political appointees were going to have a job after Jan 20th anyway.

3. Frightening news this morning about

Sec Def Miller requiring Special Forces now to report directly to HIM, instead of civilian leaders????

Miller replaced the fired Esper.

4. Trump doesn't want anyone working for him who won't kiss his humongous ass.

5. In his last days

he'll be sitting in the Oval office with Kaleigh, Steven Miller, Rush (if he's still alive) and a few other trump sycophants. All the others (including most of his kids) will be long gone hoping to save what's left of their careers.

Joe Biden shouldn't keep a single person that was hired under the trump administration including the ones that were eventually fired. Exceptions for those who spoke up during the impeachment hearings.
