Christopher Krebs, the former U.S. official whom President Trump this week fired after disputing his claims of voter fraud, spoke out after the latter’s attorneys pushed related conspiracy theories Thursday.
Several lawyers representing Mr. Trump and his reelection campaign participated in the press conference earlier in the afternoon to discuss legal efforts being pursued over his projected defeated.
Trump attorneys Rudolph W. Giuliani and Sidney Powell each made claims during the press conference that involved baseless or previously discredited or debunked conspiracy theories about the election.
Mr. Giuliani, the former New York mayor, alleged a wide-scale Democratic plot and claimed Mr. Trump was the victim of a “plan from a centralized place to execute these various acts of voter fraud.”
Mr. Trump denied that determination and said it was the reason he fired Mr. Krebs this week.
Preliminary results from the recent presidential election found Mr. Trump lost his race for reelection to Democratic challenger Joseph R. Biden, who is accordingly set to take office Jan. 20, 2021.
Mr. Trump has neither fully acknowledged his projected defeat nor conceded, however, and his lawyers have pushed various unproven claims of voter fraud in an attempt to overturn his apparent loss.
