With Joe Biden as president, things will get worse. Richard Grenell: “Chinese agents have to be able to adapt to US customs, but also have to be deeply rooted in Chinese communist culture.”
In an interview with Grant Stinchfield on Newsmax TV, former US intelligence chief and former US ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, commented on the allegations of a Chinese spy in the office of the California Democrat and Congressman Eric Swalwell.
Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House of Representatives, saw no scandal in the affair and took steps to protect Swalwell’s position.
Swalwell may have betrayed top intelligence to China and compromised national security, but Nancy Pelosi doesn’t care. She prefers to spend her time calling Trump an agent of Vladimir Putin.
Richard Grenell commented on the situation like this:
“No, you see, they have infiltrated both academia and politics, and something has to be done. Also, let’s not forget that Nancy Pelosi is defending Eric Swalwell because they’re both Democrats from the San Francisco area. They are both right there and they have the same political base. You see, she’s been warned that members of Congress, mayors, local officials, and US governors are being targeted by the Chinese. “
For Grenell, Swalwell is not an isolated case:
“The whole thing is extremely profound. It is not the only case. I can assure you of that. There are many members of Congress and Democratic governors and local officials who have been targeted by the Chinese and the Chinese have put pressure on them. It increased during Covid because they saw their reputation in jeopardy. The Chinese saw their reputation completely plummet as the intelligence services made it clear that Covid-19 started in China. So we are dealing with a crisis. We certainly know that for years Eric Swalwell downplayed the Chinese threat and overstated the Russian threat. “
Even the UN was infiltrated by China:
“Well, look, what we do know is that the Chinese agents used to target US politicians and US personnel are some of the most sophisticated Chinese spies they have. They must be able to speak English. They must be able to understand United States customs, but they must also be very ingrained in Chinese communist culture and politics. And so they are used at the top level. I spent eight years at the UN and I can assure you that Chinese spies are all over the UN,” Grenell said.
Grenell sees only one solution in the current situation:
“I think there needs to be a full Senate and House Intel Committee investigation . Everything would have to remain classified to expose the entire [Chinese espionage] case and it should be started immediately. “
“When you’re in bed with a Chinese spy, you’re in bed with the Chinese government – it’s that simple,” commented Stinchfield.
