Despite what the media has been pushing lately, Russia is not the biggest threat to the United States in terms of espionage. FBI Director Christopher Wray pointed to China as the most significant threat facing the United States.
According to The Daily Caller:
China, rather than Russia, is the “most significant” long-term threat to the United States, FBI Director Christopher Wray said Wednesday.
During an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt at the Aspen Ideas Forum, Wray said that the FBI has economic espionage investigations in all 50 states that trace back to Chinese activity.
“It covers everything from corn seeds in Iowa to wind turbines in Massachusetts and everything in between,” said Wray.
Most of the forum focused on the FBI’s investigation of Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election and in other arenas. Wray’s appearance comes in the wake of two significant indictments in Russia-related investigations.
China continues to be ignored by the media, even though they are the biggest threat economically and militarily.
