FBI Director Christopher Wray reaffirms Russia continues to try to meddle in U.S. elections

 

 

FBI Director Christopher Wray reaffirmed in public remarks what his peers in the intelligence community have been saying over the past three days about Russia's interference in the 2016 election and ongoing efforts.

 

"The intelligence community's assessment has not changed, my view has not changed -- which is that Russia attempted to interfere [in the past election] and continues to engage in malign influence operations to this day," he said, during a conversation with NBC's Lester Holt at the Aspen Security Forum Wednesday.

 

Wray also covered a variety of topics – candidly and with a number of laugh lines thrown in – whose highlights are as follows:

 

He dismissed the idea that the FBI would consider Russian President Vladimir Putin's offer to allow U.S. agents to travel to Russia to interrogate indicted individuals "Not high on our list of investigative techniques," he quipped.

 

On the topic of the special counsel's investigation into Russian meddling in the U.S. election and whether associates of Donald Trump's presidential campaign colluded with Russia, Wray said, "I do not believe special counsel Mueller is on a witch hunt."
