FBI Director Christopher Wray said Russian interference in U.S. elections continue but the methods are different from 2016. He added the intel community has seen active efforts by Russia through use of social media and online journals as well as other methods to bolster divide and discord among the public. Director Wray’s comments came during a hearing before the House Homeland Security Committee examining global threats to the nation. He also outlined how the agency has changed its methods to combat election interference including working with social media companies like Facebook to remove bots and fake accounts trying to spread misinformation. Other topics discussed included homegrown terrorism and online radicalization and COVID-19 fraud. Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf was scheduled to testify but according to the committee chair, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS), Mr. Wolf declined because he’s President Trump’s nominee to be the agency’s next secretary. Christopher Miller, director of the National Counterterrorism Center also testified. close
