FBI Director Christopher Wray emphasized the heightened concern over foreign interference in the 2024 elections, citing past attempts by Russia and other adversaries.

The potential threats include external influence on public opinion and election machinery.

“It is not seriously disputed that our foreign adversaries have tried and are continuing to try to interfere in our elections,” Wray said. (Trending: Joe Biden Impeachment Formalized As Republicans Unite)

“We’re keenly focused on the risk that foreign adversaries, whether it’s Russia, whether it’s China, whether it’s Iran or others, would seek to interfere in our elections.”

“I think it’s fair to say that they are elevated from where they were before,” Wray added.

“And to elaborate just slightly on that point, obviously we saw, and it’s not disputed, that the Russians tried to interfere in the 2016 election and then continued. But what we’ve seen since then is other adversaries attempting to take a page out of the Russians’ playbook.”

Concerns have also been raised about alleged efforts to access voting system software.

Former President Trump’s claims of election fraud have been widely dismissed, and the Republican Party is now focusing on early voting for future elections.

“I will secure our elections, and our goal will be one-day voting with paper ballots and voter ID,” Trump said.

“But until then, Republicans have to compete, and we have to win.”

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said, “Our approach to election integrity is: We fight in the courtroom, but we play by the rules we’re given in the field.”
