Fmr. DNI Grenell Warns Americans: China’s Secrecy And Intrusive 5G Network Is A Threat To U.S. Security
Former acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell told Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn in a live Instagram discussion Wednesday that China’s secrecy and failure to warn the world about COVID-19 should send a dire warning that the communist regime cannot be trusted to operate its 5G technology in the United States.
All U.S. Intelligence agencies concluded that the novel Coronavirus, which has led to the deaths of more than 600,000 people worldwide, emanated in China, he stated. China’s failure to warn the world about the emerging pandemic, despite the dangers of the virus is a foreboding warning of the destruction China can bring to unsuspecting nations, he said.
One major concern is the China’s communist governments intrusive actions and its control over Huawei 5G technology.
“What I try to say to people is if you think that coronavirus is a serious issue imagine Huawei in your home,” he told Blackburn. He warned that China’s intrinsic communist political system and its failure to share information “goes far beyond the borders of China and into our homes.”
He also stated that the Chinese government’s push of its 5G system into Europe, particularly among “some of our great western allies…but thank god we have the British, who have seen this and dialed it back and said we need a western style alternative.”
