President Donald Trump's campaign lawyer Joe diGenova said Monday that fired cybersecurity chief Chris Krebs should be 'taken out at dawn and shot'.
In an interview on the Howie Carr show, which airs on Newsmax, diGenova called Krebs a moron for saying the election was the 'most secure in United States history'.
'Anybody who thinks that this election went well, like that idiot Krebs who used to be the head of cybersecurity,' diGenova said, according to The Bulwark.
'That guy is a class A moron. He should be drawn and quartered. Taken out at dawn and shot,' diGenova added.
Krebs, a lifelong Republican, was fired by Trump by tweet on November 17, after he declared the election to be secure despite the president's claims of election fraud.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer

Krebs appeared on 60 Minutes Sunday night and furthered angered Trump.
'Our 2020 Election, from poorly rated Dominion to a Country FLOODED with unaccounted for Mail-In ballots, was probably our least secure EVER!'
Krebs, however, insisted that the election was indeed the most secure ever, and said that Trump and Rudy Giuliani's suggestions otherwise were 'dangerous'.
'I think that we should be celebrating the successes of making the 2020 election the most secure election in modern history,' Krebs said.
