"He has his opinion, he has expressed his opinion," Ray said in response to a question about Putin's denials of any interference during the Helsinki summit on Monday with Trump.
"The conclusions of the intelligence services have not changed.
My opinion has not changed, that Russia sought to intervene in the recent elections and that it continues to carry out malicious operations to influence until today. "
"These actions are aimed at spreading divisions and divisions in this country," he said.
The two, before Trump appeared to have been denied by Putin at a news conference after their summit in Helsinki, sparked outrage in Washington and called for a rare rejection by the head of the US intelligence services, National Intelligence Director Dan Coates.
On Tuesday, Trump retracted his remarks, saying he accepted the conclusions of the US intelligence services, which confirmed Russian intervention in the presidential election.
"I agree with the conclusions of our intelligence agencies that Russia intervened in the 2016 election," Trump said in a statement to the White House.
But Trump continued to raise suspicion. "There may be other people, too. There are many people," he said.
Ray, speaking at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado, also contradicted Trump's remarks that Russia had not continued to intervene this year as the United States prepared for congressional elections in November.
Ray said the FBI did not see any specific actions aimed at the US election - compared to the 2016 election - when Russian hackers targeted computer registration and polling management across the country, according to US intelligence.
Ray noted that he did not agree with Trump's repeated condemnations of the investigation by special investigator Robert Mueller about alleged Russian interference in the election.
"It is not a political campaign," he said, using the same words as Trump.
Asked whether he had threatened to resign in the past few months, amid Trump's sharp criticism of the FBI, Ray declined to respond directly.
In May 2017, Trump's predecessor, Ray Kyme, sacked James Coomy after Kumi refused to back down from investigating the Russian intervention.
Ray also pointed out that he would not retreat in the face of unreasonable pressures.
"I'm someone I do not like appearing.
But that should not affect the impression of my personality. "
