Congressional investigation finds Chinese telecoms have been spying on Americans with impunity and no government oversight
[link to freebeacon.com (secure)]

Chinese state-owned telecommunications firms are operating with little U.S. oversight and using their access in America to conduct espionage operations on behalf of the Communist Party, putting the personal information of millions of Americans at risk, according to a new congressional report.

Multiple Chinese telecom firms have operated in the United States with "little-to-no oversight" from government agencies for the past 20 years, the Senate's Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations disclosed on Tuesday in a new report. These companies are permitted near-total penetration of American communications networks and have used this access to collect data on millions of Americans, including military members and those working in sensitive government posts.

Only in the past year has the federal government begun to take a closer look at these firms, including China Telecom Americas, China Unicom Americas, and ComNet—all Communist Party-owned firms that have been operating with impunity since the early 2000s. The Senate's yearlong investigation concluded that the Federal Communications Commission failed to perform proper oversight on these companies, allowing them to collect data on scores of Americans. With the Chinese government exerting total control over these companies, it is likely these data are being used for nefarious purposes, the report warns.

China's espionage operations in America have received renewed scrutiny in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. In addition to the telecommunications sector, Beijing has stolen information from the U.S. scientific community, academic institutions, and the government itself. The Senate report is part of a larger effort by Congress to expose these spy operations and enact policies meant to stop them.

Excerpt:

In 2014, for instance, Chinese hackers found their way into a database controlled by the Office of Personnel Management, which contained records on some 22 million Americans who had security clearance and worked for the U.S. government.

I'm actually well aware.

That doesn't make it a good thing that our government has also been turning a blind eye to the PRC spying on our citizens as well.

It's were he got the phone logs on Nunes and others. He's even got Barr's phone logs. Who owns AT&T? COMCAST?

Schiff is running his own CIA, DOJ, FBI and NSA with help from China. And all those agencies too.

I think he's probably being fed most of that shit from our own deep state, but I could be wrong.

It's possible though, imo.



We need to get to the bottom of everything they have or could have compromised.

Its time to hold China accountable

They were caught stealing secrets in 11 countries for 10 years.

They have concentration camps with slave labor and organ harvesting.

They took over Honk Kong to enact dictatorship.

They kept quiet about covid19 and allowed it to spread on airlines leaving China for months.

They attacked Tibet.

They are trying to steal headwaters in Himalayas from India.

They build air defense islands to claim international waters.

They will attempt to take Taiwan and it will be war.
