The FBI warns we’re penetrated, shut down the perps

FBI Director Christopher Wray yesterday became the latest senior U.S. government official to warn about the Chinese Communist Party’s “unrestricted warfare” against our country. He described a vast, comprehensive and highly successful effort to steal our classified, proprietary and personal information in the service of the CCP’s pursuit of global domination.

Such warnings are welcome, but clearly much more needs to be done. For instance, the fact that the FBI has only 2,500 current counter-intelligence cases involving the PRC suggests a wholly inadequate response – even if a new one is being opened every ten hours.

We have to start rolling up and shutting down the perpetrators of such operations in this country. The obvious place President Trump can start is by ejecting more than 20 “Communist Chinese military companies” currently doing business here. Do it now, Mr. President.

This is Frank Gaffney.
