National Security Advisor: China Actively Interferes in US Election | Epoch News | China Insider
On September 4, White House national security advisor Robert O’Brien said the Chinese regime has the “most massive” program among countries seeking to interfere in the U.S. election, and has taken the most active role in political influence efforts.
O’Brien told reporters at a briefing: “There’s always going to be propaganda. There’s always going to be efforts to influence us. We know the Chinese have taken the most active role.”
The national security advisor concurred with Attorney General William Barr’s comments earlier this week that China, rather than Russia, poses the greatest threat to U.S. election security. O’Brien said he agreed with Barr’s assessment “100 percent.”
O’Brien described President Donald Trump as the first president to stand up to the Chinese in 40 years, saying the administration has taken “strong action” in confronting the regime’s unfair trade practices, theft of U.S. intellectual property, and human rights abuses.
The administration recently sanctioned Chinese officials and a paramilitary group over their role in repressing Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang. It’s also sanctioned Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam and other Hong Kong and Chinese officials for undermining freedoms in the city.
Pompeo: President Trump Evaluates China’s IP Theft
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says President Trump is looking into ways to prevent intellectual property theft by Chinese nationals and students.
In an interview with a DC Radio show, Pompeo said: “The Chinese Communist Party has stolen hundreds of billions of dollars of intellectual property, and with that tens and hundreds of thousands of American jobs. They’ve stolen this information, either by taking it through cyber means or, … by their people actively working inside of our places of research.”
Pompeo said previous administrations have turned a blind eye and President Trump is the first to take it seriously.
China Forcibly Collects Blood Samples From Falun Gong Practitioners
On August 2, when Shen Fang, a 70-year-old Falun Gong practitioner living in Shanghai, refused to open the door to four police officers who arrived at her apartment, they called up a locksmith and broke in. Despite her protests, the four pinned her down, grabbed her wrist, and scratched her hand multiple times to draw her blood.
The blood sampling was “required by the state,” they repeatedly told her.
One police officer shouted while covering his badge number: “The law doesn’t apply to you guys. We’re going to wipe you all out!”
According to Minghui.org, a U.S.-based clearinghouse that keeps track of the Chinese regime’s persecution of Falun Gong, dozens of adherents of the spiritual practice Falun Gong have faced similar ordeals across the country in recent months.
Falun Gong, a spiritual practice with a set of meditative exercises and moral teachings based on truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance, has been brutally suppressed in China since 1999. Over the past two decades, hundreds of thousands of adherents have been thrown into labor camps, detention centers, “reeducation” facilities, and psychiatric hospitals, where they are tortured to coerce them into renouncing their faith, according to the Falun Dafa Information Center.
The recent blood testing especially raises concern in the context of mounting evidence that the Chinese regime is commodifying prisoners of conscience by forcibly removing their organs and selling them for transplant surgery.
