FBI Director Wray Claims Russians Are “Absolutely Intent” on Trying to Interfere with 2020 Election (VIDEO)
FBI Director Christopher Wray appeared on Capitol Hill Tuesday and testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee which is examining oversight of the bureau.
Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Lindsey Graham (R-SC) asked Wray, “Are the Russians still trying to interfere in our election systems?”
Without offering any examples or evidence, Wray responded by saying, “The Russians are absolutely intent on trying to interfere with our elections through foreign influence.”

There is no evidence that the Russians interfered in the 2016 presidential election to help Donald Trump win the White House.
A handful of Russian Twitter trolls and Facebook posts by ‘Russians’ is not enough to tilt an election where each candidate is spending over $1 billion on their campaigns.
The real election interference was done by Hillary Clinton when she paid a foreign spy to compile a phony dossier which was then in turn used by Obama’s FBI, CIA and DOJ to spy on a political opponent.
Wray did however admit on Tuesday that China actually poses the biggest counterintelligence threat.
“I would say there is no country that poses a more severe counterintelligence threat to this country right now than China,” Wray told Graham.
