Washington (CNN)A senior federal election security official who was
appointed by President Donald Trump has blasted the President's false
post-election claims, calling them "baffling", "laughable" and
"insulting".
Asked in an interview what he would say to Trump about the election, Ben
Hovland said "these conspiracy theories that are flying around have
consequences."
Hovland runs the Election Assistance Commission which, in part, tests and
certifies voting machines. He was nominated by President Donald Trump last
year and unanimously confirmed by the Senate. He works closely with other
federal agencies that oversee elections, like the Cybersecurity and
Infrastructure Security Agency.

"At a minimum, it's insulting to the professionals that run our elections
and hopefully that's the worst that comes of it," Hovland told MIT
Technology Review. "Our people, they're doing their jobs but they don't
feel safe doing it. That is a tragedy. That is awful. These are public
servants. This isn't a job you do for glory or to get rich."

Hovland's comments are the strongest rejection so far from a Trump
administration official of what the President is saying. They come as his
colleague at CISA, Director Chris Krebs, is also ratcheting up his rebukes
of the President's claims.
Additionally on Thursday the Department of Homeland Security along with a
group of national, state and private election officials said in a joint
statement that there is no evidence of any voting system being compromised
in the 2020 election despite Trump's deluge of election fraud
conspiracies, and called the election "the most secure in American
history."
Hovland also called Trump's claim that millions of his votes were deleted
"pretty baffling."

"I just wish that if claims like that were going to be made, they would
actually be backed up with something credible. I think those types of
statements matter. They cause Americans to lose confidence in the
process," Hovland said.

The legal process taking place is very to different to what is being
described by the President and his aides, Hovland added.
"We see bold statements on Twitter or at the podium and we see hearsay and
we see laughable evidence presented to courts," Hovland said. "There's
just not a correlation between those."
