Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Cruz, Graham Back Trump’s Move to Fire Cybersecurity Official Christopher Krebs” – below is their description.
Senate Republicans are hoping their colleague Sen. Chuck Grassley, the longest-serving Republican senator and third in the line of presidential succession, recovers from coronavirus. The 87-year-old had been in quarantine awaiting test results after exposure to the virus. On Tuesday evening, he tweeted he’d tested positive. He hasn’t said how he was exposed but was in the Senate and voting Monday. By missing votes Tuesday, Grassley broke a 27-year streak of not missing a single Senate vote. GOP Senators speaking to reporters on Wednesday also said the President has the right to fire administration officials when asked about President Donald Trump’s dismissal of the nation’s top election security official, Christopher Krebs. While abrupt, the dismissal Tuesday of Krebs, the director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, was not a surprise. Since his loss, Trump has been ridding his administration of officials seen as insufficiently loyal and has been denouncing the conduct of an election that led to an embarrassing defeat to Democrat Joe Biden.
