FBI Director Christopher Wray affirmed on Thursday there's no proof of a national attempt to defraud the 2020 election. On Wednesday, President Trump refused to say whether he would peacefully give up power if Democratic nominee Joe Biden is elected this fall, repeating baseless allegations that Democrats are running a "scam." But in sworn testimony before Congress, Wray said he's seen no evidence of this happening. While Wray takes "voter fraud and voter suppression ... seriously," he said "We have not seen, historically, any kind of coordinated national voter fraud effort in a major election, whether it's by mail or otherwise." He has seen instances of local voter fraud, but said "to change a federal election outcome by mounting that kind of fraud at scale would be a major challenge."
