U.S. President Donald Trump has fired a top cybersecurity official who reposted material dismissing allegations of voter fraud in the presidential election.
In a tweet Tuesday, Trump accused Christopher Krebs of making a highly inaccurate statement in relation to the poll, which the president still refuses to concede.
The BBC's North America correspondent Peter Bowes has more.
Chris Krebs was in charge of the agency responsible for the integrity of the election.
On polling day, he said some overseas attempts to interfere in the process had been addressed.
But he warned the country wasn't out of the woods yet.
Last week, with Mr. Trump still refusing to concede the election, the security agency said there was no evidence that any voting system deleted or lost votes, changed votes or was in any way compromised.
Not so, says the president.
There were massive improprieties and fraud he writes on Twitter, making unsubstantiated claims.
