Complete confidence in election? 'Implausible'

voting machine with ballotsNot everyone agrees with a former election security official's dismissal of claims of interference in the presidential race between Donald Trump and Joe Biden.

"We can go on and on with all the claims alleging interference in the 2020 election, but the proof is in the ballots," former United States Director of the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency Chris Krebs recently told the "60 Minutes" program.

"The recounts are consistent with the initial count, and to me, that's further evidence, that's confirmation that the systems used in the 2020 election performed as expected and the American people should have 100 percent confidence in their vote," he added.

Responding to this on Newsmax TV, former United States attorney Brett Tolman called it astounding.

"I struggle with conspiracy theories, and I'm very doubtful of them to begin with," he began. "I've put to rest several theories before in my career, but this is something that you're looking at and you participated in, each of us did, and we saw such unusual results and something going on behind the scenes," Tolman said.

He added that it is "almost implausible" to suggest that the election was 100% secure, as judges are expressing such concern that they are seizing machines and issuing orders to take a closer look.

"This has the earmarkings of someone going public in order to try to change the narrative from what all of us lived through and observed in that election," Tolman decides.

On Sunday night, U.S. District Judge Timothy Batten Sr. blocked plans to wipe or reset the voting machines used in three Georgia counties. Monday, President Trump's attorneys were in Phoenix to bring attention to concerns that election machines can be and might have been hacked to make it appear as though Joe Biden won the election.
