In the space of a single sentence uttered Thursday, FBI Director Christopher Wray unwound months of wild conspiracy theories pushed by President Donald Trump and his allies about mail-in ballots in the 2020 election.
“Now, we have not seen, historically, any kind of coordinated national voter fraud effort in a major election, whether it’s by mail or otherwise,” Wray said in response to a question about the safety of voting by mail, which millions of Americans are expected to do amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Wray was testifying in front of the Senate Homeland Security Committee. Under oath. Meaning that if he didn’t tell the truth about his knowledge in regard to what he knew about the record of fraudulent voting by mail, he would be committing a crime.
Of course, that did not stop the White House from trying to discredit him.
“With all due respect to Director Wray, he has a hard time finding emails in his own FBI, let alone figuring out whether there’s any kind of voter fraud,” White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said Friday morning on CBS.
That last bit is all about the White House’s frustration that Wray has not helped them discredit the Russia investigation that led to Trump’s impeachment.
Instead, the FBI Director keeps stating the facts, and that does not favor Donald Trump and his attempts to undermine this election one little bit.
