The increase of Chinese espionage in the United States was likely not the only reason for the closure of China’s Houston consulate. China has also been using it as a base to intimidate U.S. energy firms that have a presence in the South China Sea.
The Chinese Communist Party cannot be trusted. They have attempted to hack vaccine research and now we find out they were conducting espionage and stealing intellectual property out of their consulate in Houston. Shutting down the consulate was the right call by @SecPompeo
Gordon Chang is on Fox alleging that the Houston Chinese consulate provided “logistical and financial support” to BLM protests and the CPC is “stoking racial tensions.” Can’t believe China reverse-engineered 400 years of American slavery, apartheid, and mass incarceration.
