FBI Director: China’s Threat ‘More Brazen’ Than Ever Before

FBI Director Christopher Wray spoke at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library Monday night where he alerted “the threat to the West from the Chinese government is ‘more brazen’ and damaging than ever before” reports the Associated Press.

In an appearance on Fox News Monday, Sara Carter spoke about China’s distribution of the deadly drug fentanyl that is making its way into the United States through drug cartels at our southern border. Wray’s message was about China as one of our biggest threats to long-term economic security.

“When we tally up what we see in our investigations, over 2,000 of which are focused on the Chinese government trying to steal our information or technology, there’s just no country that presents a broader threat to our ideas, innovation, and economic security than China,” Wray said, according to a copy of the speech provided by the FBI to the AP.

Chinese government hackers are so prevalent and skilled, hey are obtaining more personal and corporate data than all other countries combined. The FBI has to open new cases to counter Chinese intelligence operations every 12 hours or so, Wray said.

“The harm from the Chinese government’s economic espionage isn’t just that its companies pull ahead based on illegally gotten technology. While they pull ahead, they push our companies and workers behind,” Wray said. “That harm — company failures, job losses — has been building for a decade to the crush we feel today. It’s harm felt across the country, by workers in a whole range of industries.”

The AP reports that Chinese government officials have repeatedly rejected accusations from the U.S. government, with the spokesman for the embassy in Washington saying Americans have “made groundless attacks” and malicious smears about Chinese cyberattacks.

Wray added, “I’ve spoken a lot about this threat since I became director” in 2017. “But I want to focus on it here tonight because it’s reached a new level — more brazen, more damaging, than ever before, and it’s vital — vital — that all of us focus on that threat together.”

The AP notes “the Justice Department in 2014 indicted five Chinese military officers on charges of hacking into major American corporations. One year later, the U.S. and China announced a deal at the White House to not steal each other’s intellectual property or trade secrets for commercial gain.” Similar to Iran, China’s words mean absolutely nothing.

    /It’s very difficult to believe a word out of the FBI’s collective mouth. It has lost a good deal of credibility.

    If you make a deal with China, they will hold you to the letter while they will evade for themselves.
    It’s passed the point of no return. I haven’t been able to find any household or apparel items not made in China for years and America’s biggest reta idlers such as Walmart, Target, Amazon, are all complicit, while importers, not manufacturers, make the most money.
    FBI isn’t going to arrest the wealthiest people in the world for selling Chinese made goods in the US.
    Probably the only question is how long until China pulls the strings in America’s biggest corporations and government, if they don’t already.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol data Border Patrol agents detained over 30,000 Chinese individuals for illegally crossing the border from January to November 2023, sparking concern.

Just The News reports that National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd on Wednesday said the United States should be incredibly concerned by the influx of military-aged Chinese men coming across the southern border.

“Why are we seeing this influx?” Judd asked on the “Just the News, No Noise” TV show. “At best, they’re just coming here for a better life or for a better job. At worse, they’re coming here to be part of the Chinese government, and that’s what scares me an awful lot.”

“We know that the Chinese have huge gangs here in the United States, and they control certain parts of our country,” he later said. “They control the drug flow. They control the prostitution. They control everything that’s illegal in certain portions of the country. We have to look into that. It’s very important that we understand why we are having so many people from China, especially military-aged men, from China.”

“I don’t want to cause mass hysteria where United States citizens are violent towards people from China,” Judd said. “However, we have to … allow the intelligence community to do their job. We’ve got to let law enforcement do their job and look into these individuals.”

Many Chinese immigrants are leaving due to economic conditions in China and its strict lockdowns, Yahoo News reported.

“Again, at best, they’re here for a better life,” Judd said. “At worst, they’re here to be part of the Chinese government to infiltrate our own country.”
