(Worthy News) – The Department of Justice (DOJ) announced a slew of charges against Chinese nationals in what the DOJ said is part of a concerted effort by the Chinese government to undermine U.S. institutions and values.
Attorney General Merrick Garland was joined at the DOJ by Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco, FBI Director Chris Wray, and other top officials to announce the unsealing of several indictments targeting 13 Chinese nationals, including many Chinese intelligence officers. Garland said that two of the 13 have been arrested.
Two of the indictments were unsealed in the Eastern District of New York. One of the charging documents alleged that seven Chinese nationals hounded the victim and victim’s son to try and force the victim to return to China to face some unknown consequence. Garland said that the pressure campaign, which included “frivolous” lawsuits and threats against the victim and victim’s family, was a part of a Chinese government campaign known as “Operations Fox Hunt.” [ Source: Daily Wire (Read More…) ]
