According to Mike Pompeo from Central Intelligence Agency, Chinese efforts to dismantle covert influence across the West are equally worrying as Russian subversions. The Chinese have much more space for their mission than the Russians have.
Pompeo expects Russia to try to hinder US elections in November 2018 that North Korea will be able to attack the United States on nuclear missiles in a few months.
Earlier this year, a former CIA agent was arrested for retaining confidential information in a case related to his spy operations in China.
Before the arrest of Jerry Chun Shing Li, 20 US agents have been killed or arrested in the past few years, which is one of the most frustrating US intelligence services.
Pompeo says the country can do more together to avoid China’s efforts to overcome the West. Pompeo concluded that are very present and very focused efforts aimed at the theft of US information, the spy infiltration in the United States, with people who go to work on behalf of the government and against America. I’ll see you in our schools. See you in our hospitals and the health system. I’ll see you all over America. That applies to other parts of the world, including Europe and the United Kingdom.
