FBI director says Russia is interfering in US election to ‘denigrate’ Joe Biden

Published on September 18, 2020 by

FBI Director Christopher Wray says Russia has been engaging in “very active” interference in the 2020 US election – primarily to “denigrate” Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

Mr Wray testified before the House Homeland Security Committee where he said Russia was using social media, proxies, state media and online journals to “sow divisiveness and discord” in the country.

President Trump and several other top officials have been downplaying the reports Russia is trying to help him win – after similar claims surrounded the 2016 contest against Hillary Clinton.

Instead, President Trump’s camp claims China is meddling to elect Mr Biden.
