Nice to see that Trump appointed FBI Director Christopher Wray isn't drinking the Kool-Aid yet.  

I'm truly amazed at the willingness of Ted Cruz to lie for Trump

WASHINGTON FBI Director Christopher Wray said there was no indication that Ukraine meddled in the 2016 U.S. election, contradicting claims made by President Donald Trump and several Republican lawmakers in recent weeks.

"We have no information that indicates that Ukraine interfered with the 2016 presidential election," he said in an ABC News interview aired on Monday.

When asked if he's concerned about the impact of politicians pushing the discredited claim that Ukraine interfered, Wray demurred, saying, "There's all kinds of people saying all kinds of things out there."

"I think it's important for the American people to be thoughtful consumers of information and to think about the sources of it and to think about the support and predication for what they hear," he added.

His comments come a day after a testy exchange between NBC News' "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who said he believed there was "considerable evidence" that "Ukraine blatantly interfered in our election" alongside Russia.
