FBI Head Accuses Russians, Says Antifa Aren’t Terrorists

Is he looking to retire? Contradicting President Trump’s campaign talking points, FBI Director Chris Wray told a House committee Thursday that Russia is “very active” in trying to disrupt the U.S. election. Wray said it was the intelligence community’s consensus that the Kremlin is stoking divisions while denigrating Joe Biden — meddling that Trump has repeatedly dismissed. Wray also called this year’s civil rights protests largely peaceful, but said his agency is investigating extremists on both sides, including Trump’s favorite foil, antifa. Unlike his boss, Wray described antifa as a movement or ideology rather than a terror group.
