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."
