FBI Director: Russia Continues to Sow Discord In The U.S.

FBI Director Christopher Wray said Wednesday that Russia continues to use fake news, propaganda and covert operations to “spin up” Americans on both sides of hot-button issues to sow discord in the United States. Wray stood behind the intelligence agencies’ assessment that Moscow meddled in the 2016 presidential election, dismissing Russian President Vladimir Putin’s claim that his country was not involved. “He’s got his view. I can tell you what my view is,” Wray said at the opening event of the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado. “The intelligence community’s view has not changed. My view has not changed.” Wray spoke after a day of controversy in Washington over whether President Donald Trump accepts the intelligence agencies’ assessment and whether he believes Moscow is continuing to try to influence American elections or threaten the nation’s infrastructure.

Maybe, it's time to stop with using the word “meddle”.  Meddle is something a child does with his mother’s jewelry box.  How about tampering? Sabotage? Hacking? Cyber attack...etc.

Maybe I'm wrong, but it's hard to remember period when the State and intelligence services have been "popular" as today
