No Country Poses a More Severe Threat To U.S.'s Innovation, Ideas and Economic Security Than China, FBI Director Says

Wednesday February 2, 2022. 03:01 PM , from Slashdot
The FBI is launching roughly two China-related counterintelligence investigations about every 12 hours, Bureau director Christopher Wray told NBC News in an interview published this week. From a report: Wray is increasingly sounding the alarm on the threat posed by China's government even as Russian troops amass at Ukraine's border, indicating that he believes the Chinese Communist Party is the biggest threat to the economic security of the U.S. in the long term. 'There is no country that presents a broader, more severe threat to our innovation, our ideas and our economic security than China does,' Wray said in his interview. Wray's comments build on his speech in California on Monday during which he said China's government was getting 'more brazen' in economic espionage and other efforts to disrupt the U.S. In echoes of remarks he made in 2020, Wray said over 2,000 FBI investigations were 'focused on the Chinese government trying to steal our information or technology, there's just no country that presents a broader threat to our ideas, innovation, and economic security than China.'
