So shocking that I can’t bring myself to believe it. Chad Wolf, the acting head of DHS, is Trump’s boy. At a moment when other loyalists like Bill Barr are doing what they can to prop up the big “I was cheated!” performance, Wolf is the last guy anyone would have picked to push back.
Until I saw this New York Post story, I’d have been more likely to believe that “Hammer” and “Scorecard” changed 80 million Trump votes to Biden or whatever than that Wolf would tell Trump to go do his own dirty work. But here we are.
I wrote about Chris Krebs, the director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, in this post last night. CISA is an arm of DHS charged with protecting critical infrastructure from cyberattacks. They’ve been posting debunkings of misinformation related to cybersecurity since Election Day, very much including the Dominion “Hammer” and “Scorecard” conspiracy. The White House didn’t like that and reportedly told CISA to remove that debunking because it was messing with Trump’s narrative. Krebs wouldn’t do it and told friends that he expected to be fired and didn’t care.
