Wray told lawmakers about the ongoing threats from Russia and China during his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Wray was testifying at an oversight hearing a day before Robert Mueller, the former special counsel, was due to testify publicly before Congress about his two-year investigation of Russian interference to sway the 2016 presidential race toward President Donald Trump.
“Everything we’ve done against Russia has not deterred them enough?” asked Senator Lindsey Graham, the Republican committee chairman. “All the sanctions, all the talk, they’re still at it?”
“Yes. My view is until they stop they haven’t been deterred enough,” Wray responded.
On China, Wray told lawmakers that no other country posed a “more severe counterintelligence threat to this country right now than China.”
