FBI Director tells senate the FBI has not found voter fraud by mail or otherwise

FBI Director Wray said Thursday that the bureau has not seen widespread voting fraud, an assertion that undercuts President Trump’s recent warnings about the integrity of the election. ’We have not seen, historically, any kind of coordinated national voter fraud effort in a major election, whether it’s by mail or otherwise,’ Wray told the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Comm.

FBI must be cleaned out. I'm an ordinary citizen with an internet connection can find you dozens of cases in minutes.

Google search "usps test mail in voting lost" and you will be flooded with case studies of delays, this is empirical evidence of failure to perform. In July of this year roughly 20,000 fake driver licenses were found in Chicago, most came from China, this is empirical evidence of both malintention and capability to reproduce official US documents. If you combine the low quality of service from the USPS with the MMO of a foreign country, you will get election interference. You can't watch A, B, C, and D occur just to close you eyes and shout "E will never happen!"

Fire this tool. He held up the Senate and house investigations into spygate he doesn't know antifa is a domestic terrorist organization and now with wide spread fraud just this year and the nullification of a election in NJ he still falsely claims it's not a thing.... he shouldn't even be a dog catcher

Potential voter fraud is only a contributing factor to the main concern of mail in ballots, which is reliability. I am inclined to agree with the statement that there is no "widespread voting fraud" but just because we don't see a national conspiracy, does not mean it is not a factor at all since it could be localized. The talking point of voter fraud draws focus away from the reliability of our absentee voting system. You don't have to buy in to a grand conspiracy to have doubts in the system. Here is a memo from MIT on the reliability of mail-based voting options: (https://web.mit.edu/supportthevoter/www/files/2013/11/Vote-by-Mail-Reform-Memo.pdf) Things I found notable: -In 2008, 7.6mil requested ballots (21%) didn't make it through due to request not being filled (3.9mil), ballots not being returned (2.9mil), and ballots being rejected (800k) most likely due to clerical errors by voter. (Citation 13: Caltech/MIT. “Voting: What Has Changed, What Hasn’t, and What Needs Improvement”. 2012) -"Election administrators are forced to reject 2% of absentee ballots, compared to only 1% of ballots rejected for in-person voting." (Citation 16: https://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/07/us/politics/as-more-vote-by-mail-faulty-ballots-could-impact-elections.html) I recommend you make your own conclusions on the effectiveness of voting by mail. Personally, I think I need to look into it a bit more, but it is clear to me that it is at least slightly more unreliable than voting in person. I am also curios the effect this will have in the election, many of Trump's base is likely to vote by mail (older) but Democrats have been pushing their supporters to use the mail in system.
