Ex-security chief sues Trump campaign attorney & Newsmax for threats, defamation

Chris Krebs - until recently the nation’s top cybersecurity expert, leading DHS’s CISA - was fired after describing the 2020 election as ’the most secure in American history’. Now, he’s suing the Trump campaign, lawyer Joseph diGenova, and Newsmax, in response to diGenova’s on-air suggestion that Krebs be ’drawn and quartered’ and ’shot.’ Krebs and his family have since faced serious threats.

If this person would make a claim that this election was safe and secure when the voting systems have shown to be insecure then tough luck. Should people be threatening his life, no. How is that Trump's fault? If this guy's lawsuit goes through then any person that was ever threatened die to be a Trump supporter can sue CNN & MSNBC.

For ANY lawyer to say what was said and act like a street thug should warrant disbarment. Period.

Far right extremists doing what far right extremist do—attempt to intimidate with threats and probably will eventually walk around with assault rifles at his home because their brain cant thinky enough to solve problems and they aren’t able to provide any evidence of fraud or competent arguments to change anything...so rifle it is! But, damn, if BLM spraypaints a sidewalk you wont hear the end of it from this group. Please stop righties, you are making yourselves look silly. The election is over. It has been over a month and there has been zero substantial evidence brought forward. Even Trump appointed judges and Supreme Court are not willing to turn their back on our democracy for him. Let it go. Drink some egg nog, watch some Xmas movies, write your name in the snow without using your hands, etc.

“The U.S. election and cybersecurity official who was fired last month by President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit Tuesday over threatening remarks by a lawyer for the president that prompted a wave of death threats against him.” “Christopher Krebs says in the suit that he has been "bombarded" with threats since attorney Joseph diGenova appeared on the pro-Trump TV network Newsmax and called for Krebs to be killed.” "The defendants' threats have upended plaintiff's life, as well as his family's security, and caused serious fear, distress, suffering, and even physical damage," he said in the suit, filed in diGenova's home state of Maryland.” “Krebs was director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency until he was fired in a November 17 tweet by Mr. Trump after he and other officials who oversaw the election determined it was free of major fraud or interference, contradicting the president's unsubstantiated assertions to the contrary.” “DiGenova said in a November 30 appearance on Newsmax that Krebs should be "drawn and quartered" and "taken out at dawn and shot" for his defense of the November election won by Joe Biden and his participation in what he portrayed as a "coup" against the president.” “He later said he had been joking in the interview but the lawsuit calls the remarks "shockingly irresponsible and dangerous," in the tense political climate.” A completely irresponsible degenerate makes irresponsible comments on air and completely irresponsible degenerates threaten someone’s life and family because he did his job. Please, think before you act. Consume your news from multiple sources, I’d wager a bet that the people who threatened the man don’t exactly have an eclectic taste for media sources.

Meh, you were a public figure, who intentionally placed yourself in the spotlight to an even greater degree unnecessarily. If such lawsuits worked then every politician/bureaucrat would be suing the news media continuously.
