(NewsReady.com) – On October 21, the FBI and Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe announced Russia and Iran are trying to influence the 2020 election. Officials outlined some of the ways foreign entities are spreading misinformation. But, one high-ranking Democrat isn’t listening.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) told MSNBC he received a classified briefing from Ratcliffe and didn’t get the impression Iran is trying to help Joe Biden win. This is in conflict with what the DNI and FBI are saying. They made it clear the Iranian interference is an attempt to undermine President Donald Trump.
During the press conference, Ratcliffe said Iran was responsible for messages blamed on the Proud Boys that sought to intimidate voters. The DNI explained the emails and other actions were designed to “damage President Trump.”
Schumer’s refusal to admit Iran is interfering to hurt Trump is foolish. Democrats have been talking about election interference for four years. The FBI and DNI are trying to warn Americans, as the Left claimed they wanted, and now a party leader is contradicting law enforcement officials. Does that make sense?
