Something in this doesn’t add up…..
I’m no expert…
I’m just a political dog….
But the idea that Iran would looking to pump up the Trump vote just does NOT hold water….
That the Russians would do this?
But it seems that the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe gave the story that BOTH Russia and Iran did the hacking that we thought was done by ‘Proud Boys’ people…
FBI Director Wray , who was told to show up at the presser did NOT name the Iranian’s, who one would sure believe WANT Joe Biden to win….But the NOT the Russian’s who want to repeat their success from 2016….
Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe warned Wednesday that Russia and Iran are behind efforts to sway public opinions related to the 2020 presidential election.
“We have identified that two foreign actors, Iran and Russia, have taken specific actions to influence public opinion relating to our elections,” Ratcliffe said an abruptly scheduled press conference on election security threats.
In particular, Ratcliffe said Iran is behind sending spoofed emails that aim to intimidate voters, incite social unrest and damage President Trump. He also said it is behind circulating other content such as a video that appears to encourage individuals to fraudulently cast ballots, even from overseas….
FBI Director Christopher Wray, who spoke after Ratcliffe, said it is a primary responsibility at the agency to investigate malicious cyber activity such as attacks on election infrastructure, malign foreign influence operations and other election-related crimes.
He said the bureau is working with the private sector, including technology and social media companies, to help prevent foreign adversaries from again using the platforms to spread disinformation.
Wray also encouraged individuals to view claims that their vote won’t count with “a healthy dose of skepticism.”….
