  1. "Facts are the enemy of truth!" says:

    The US government’s chief information security officer (CISO) is taking time off from his official duties to help President Trump’s so-far-fruitless search for election fraud.
    Camilo Sandoval worked on Trump’s 2016 campaign and has been the federal CISO, a position in the White House’s Office of Management and Budget, since October of this year. But Sandoval is now spending his days working for the newly formed Voter Integrity Fund, which is reportedly “run by government employees and former Trump campaign staffers who are analyzing voter data in six key states.” https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2020/11/us-govs-ciso-takes-leave-to-help-trump-search-for-election-fraud/
    Ethics rules require federal employees to keep political activity and government work separate. Sandoval said he isn’t breaking any rules, The Washington Post reported yesterday: https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-voter-integrity-fund/2020/11/15/89986f1c-25fe-11eb-952e-0c475972cfc0_story.html

  2. Putsch says:

    Trump campaign attorney Joe diGenova implicitly called for former director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Chris Krebs to be executed on Monday for having the temerity to say the 2020 election was the “most secure in United States history.”
    DiGenova, a former U.S. attorney who is now a member of President Trump’s “elite strike force” looking to overthrow President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory, appeared on pro-Trump host Howie Carr’s Newsmax show on Monday afternoon to boost the president’s unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud. https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-campaign-lawyer-joe-digenova-says-ex-cybersecurity-chief-krebs-should-be-taken-out-at-dawn-and-shot
    According to Trump’s mouthpiece, “Anybody who thinks the election went well, like that idiot Krebs who used to be the head of cybersecurity. That guy is a class A moron. He should be drawn and quartered. Taken out at dawn and shot.”
    “DiGenova’s deranged and dangerous remarks come on the heels of several lawmakers and election officials, many of them Republicans, receiving death threats for not playing along with Team Trump’s attempts to steal the election. Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, who voted for Trump, was assailed by the president and other Republicans for defending his state’s voting process and has been repeatedly threatened.”
