Given months and months of a false narrative pushed out there by Trump hating media and politicians that Russia “hacked” the 2016 Election, the recent declaration by FBI Director Christopher Wray that Russia has actually NEVER hacked a U.S. election should be very big news. Instead, most in the media are ignoring it and if you’re CNN, well, you just flat out lie about what Director Wray actually said.
Here is what Director Wray said on the subject of Russia election hacking according to a local Fox 31 Denver report:
He said that while U.S. officials have not yet seen an effort by Russia to target specific election systems, it is aggressively engaged in influence operations to sow discord and divisiveness in America. “To me, it’s a threat that we need to take very serious and respond to with fierce determination,” Wray said.
He said the Russians identify divisive issues, and through covert and overt operations, fake news and propaganda, they “spin people up on both sides of an issue and then kind of watch us go after each other.”
Russia isn’t the only country threatening the U.S., Wray said.
He said he thinks China, from a counterintelligence perspective, represents the broadest and most significant threat America faces. China wants to replace the United States as the most powerful economic engine in the world and is infiltrating American businesses to get an edge.
So there are a few very important points to note about what FBI Director Wray communicated:
-Russia has NEVER hacked a U.S. election.
-Russia’s election “meddling” amounts to winding Americans up so they will argue with one another/become more divided/disillusioned/etc.
-China is a far greater threat to America than Russia.
Now here is how CNN reported on the above from Director Wray:
In his interview, Wray said that the intelligence community has not observed an effort by Russia to target specific election infrastructure as it did in 2016, but “we could just be a moment away from it going to the next level.”
Note the bolded part. CNN included that itself – it didn’t come from Director Wray. CNN purposely attempted to play down the most important point regarding Russia meddling – it has never actually hacked a U.S. election. CNN also neglected to include Director Wray’s opinion that China poses a much greater threat to the United States than Russia.
This leaves one to have to ask – what does China have on CNN to make it lie so much in China’s favor? Is CNN guilty of treason? Is it compromised? Should it be required to hand over transcripts of its news editor meetings?
It appears CNN isn’t just fake news – it’s Chinese & Russian propaganda.
UPDATE: The video of Director Wray’s comments have been included. Note again how he never says “as it did in 2016.” Those words were inserted by CNN – irrefutable proof of a highly partisan propaganda group posing as real news. Also, note at 22:35 of the video is where Wray discusses how China, not Russia, is the most significant counterintelligence threat to the United States – a comment CNN’s propoganda version neglected to include.
