FBI Director "Russia is trying to harm Biden in election"
quote:

FBI Director Christopher Wray warned that the Russian government is “very active” in efforts to influence the 2020 presidential election by harming Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

Appearing before the House Homeland Security Committee on Thursday, less than two months to go until Election Day, Wray stressed that he has not seen election infrastructure targeted by Russian cyberactors like in 2016.

“I think the intelligence committee’s consensus is Russia continues to try to influence our elections, primarily through what we would call malign foreign influence, as opposed to what we saw in 2016, where there was also an effort to target election infrastructure — you know, cybertargeting. We have not seen that second part yet this year or this cycle,” Wray said. “But we certainly have seen very active efforts by the Russians to influence our election in 2020 through what I would call more the malign foreign influence side of things — social media, use of proxies, state media, online journals, etc. — in an effort to both sow divisiveness and discord, and I think the intelligence community has assessed this publicly, primarily to denigrate Vice President Biden and what the Russians see as kind of an anti-Russian establishment. That’s essentially what we’re seeing in 2020.”

Biden and his team are doing enough to harm Biden’s chances without additional help.

Oh, ok. He's got my vote now, thanks FBI for letting me know Russia is the reason I wasn't going to vote for him.

When did this become bad? Our media thrives on it, and we just had a foreign owned magazine that circulates here come out and endorse a candidate, and nobody here seems to mind much.

Every nation state government attempts to influence every election to fit its interests, and it stands to reason why Russia would prefer Trump over Biden.

Unless someone is talking about physically hacking voting systems, why is this major news.

Our own country (the left) is doing far worse in those areas.

This is the establishment outright lying and controlling the party politics in the US by crying foul on some foreign government. Still using the old muh Russians to control what is allowed to be published in print or online.

Makes zero sense. Biden is a walking clusterfrick. What on earth could the Russians possibly be doing to make him look any more fricking stupid Danny already is… Was it their idea to play Despacito?

So they have spent $25,000 on facebook ads instead of $100,000?

I've got the same question as in 2016. Why? In 2016 no lefty could explain why the Russians preferred Trump over Hillary. Nothing in this article answers the question ...why? 'Divisiveness and Discord.'
That's stupid. They could support Biden and do the same thing. There is no logical benefit the Russians get by a Trump win.

My anti-establishment is like your deep state. It is the same entity we demonstrated against in the sixties.
