FBI Director Says Midterm Elections Will Be Fair

Source: PoliticalWire



September 14, 2018 at 7:11 am EDT By Taegan Goddard

FBI Director Christopher Wray “assured Americans that they could have confidence in the U.S. election system during the November midterm elections despite efforts from the Russian government to undermine it,” Politico reports.

Said Wray: “‘I think Americans can have confidence in our election system. What the Russians do is sow both inaccurate information, disinformation, it’s a kind of information warfare, and then propaganda: exaggerated half-truths, distortions.”

2. Not that I have any confidence in his ability to make that statement with confidence

But it's certainly one more reason for the Republicans to hate the FBI

3. Not exactly FBI jurisdiction

FEC, states, counties, local municipalities .... I don't believe the FBI is monitoring polls despite what paranoids might think

5. Unless we go back to using paper ballots

I won't be totally convinced that our elections will be hacker-free. Sorry. Mr. Wray.

8. Sessions made him lie like this.

Wray isn't stupid, but obviously is willing to lie for his bosses. He has no knowledge that Russia won't hack the voters roles to remove Dems or won't hack the actual votes to remove x% of all Dem votes. This hasn't been investigated from 2016 because drumpf wants to keep it a secret so Russia can do it again and again.

19. That's a nice statement, Mr. Wray, however, excuse us for not believing it.

Back in January of this year, Sen.Marco Rubio (R-FL) introduced a bill with Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), called "Defending Elections from Threats by Establishing Redlines (DETER) Act.

Why hasn't Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) even taken up this bi-partisan bill?

Action, not words, is what is needed, Mr. Wray.
