Russia will likely try to interfere in the 2020 US presidential election and has been undermining American values 24/7, FBI Director Chris Wray said Friday.
The FBI chief said that Russia continues to threaten American democracy and spreads its influence 365-days-a-year.
Infiltrating through social media Russian threat appears as “fake news, propaganda, false personas, et cetera.”
According to Chris Wray, Russians aim is “to spin us up, pit us against each other, sow divisiveness and discord, and undermine Americans’ faith in democracy.”
He also warned that alleged Russian meddling in the US elections was barely just an exercise for the future media interventions.
‘We’re very much viewing 2018 as just kind of a dress rehearsal for the big show in 2020,’ Wray said.
Responding to the question about President Trump’s repeated criticisms of the FBI, Chris Wray said that “rumors about damage to morale or our brand are grievously overstated.”
