FBI director pegs China as the most 'severe' counterintelligence threat

Wednesday, July 24, 2019 | Tag Cloud Tags: , , , , , , ,

(Worthy News) - FBI Director Christopher Wray said that China is the greatest counterintelligence threat facing the U.S. but warned that Russia is a close runner-up as Moscow remains focused on disrupting the upcoming presidential election.

Chairman Lindsey Graham of South Carolina asked Wray about China during his Tuesday testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Wray replied that “there is no country that poses a more severe counterintelligence threat to this country right now.” Wray added that the second greatest counterintelligence challenge was “probably Russia.”

Explaining the difference between his rankings, Wray said the distinction was that “China is fighting a generational fight here” and said that the Chinese government and the Chinese Communist Party were using their government officials, private sector entities, and “nontraditional collectors” in a coordinated effort to “steal their way up the economic ladder at our expense.” [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
