House Homeland Security Committee 🔒 In a hearing before the House Homeland Security Committee, FBI Director Christopher Wray said, “We will not tolerate foreign interference in our elections.”
Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MI) asked, “Can you tell me if, as of this date, you have information that Russia is trying to influence in the election in 2020?”
Dr. Wray responded, “Yes, I think the intelligence community’s consensus is that Russia continues to try to influence our election, primarily through what we would call malign foreign influence.”
He added, “We certainly have seen very active, very active efforts by the Russians to influence our election in 2020 through… the malign foreign influence side of things: social media, use of proxies, state media, online journals, in an effort to both sow divisiveness and discord and… primarily, to denigrate Vice President Biden.”
