President Trump has fired a Top cybersecurity official who reposted material dismissing allegations of voter fraud in the recent presidential election. Mr. Trump accused Christopher Krebs, the director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency of making a highly inaccurate statement. Here's Peter Bowes.
