"No media outlet will publish this Chinese spy’s name or his current employment or location, which is most curious."…
"Maybe I’m old fashioned but I remember when getting caught spying for a foreign power on U.S. soil got you arrested or at least expelled from the country. All that happened to this guy from the news reports I’ve looked at is that…he was forced out of a job."
"Oh? Is that how this is supposed to work? You get caught spying on a U.S. Senator for a foreign power like the Russians or the Chinese, and, look out, you’ll lose your job on that Senator’s staff?"
“Investigators reportedly concluded the driver hadn’t leaked anything of substance and Feinstein forced him to retire.” is how CBS News affiliate KPIX put it in it’s online report. Well who reported that to KPIX? Were these sources on the record or were they anonymous?
The Chinese had a key spy at Senator Feinstein’s elbow for 20 years and they were content with him leaking exactly NOTHING of any substance to them?

Perhaps my naturally skeptical nature is asserting itself too strongly here, but I’m having trouble buying this.
The Chinese would leave an asset that close to a key U.S. Senator for almost two decades while patiently waiting for him to finally cough up something to them of real value? And he never does?

Boy, how lucky is that?! 🤔
Also, if they caught this spy 5 years ago but hey, he never gave anything of substance to Chinese intelligence, why was this kept quiet since 2013? You’d think they’d make a very public example out of this guy.
Kind of like the example that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s prosecution team is currently making out of supposed Russian spy Marina Butina. Or does that kind of thing only happen when it’s a Russian and there’s a Republican in the White House?
This whole Chinese spy story smells to me like somebody knew this information about Feinstein was about to come out anyway, and it’s an attempt to do damage control by handing it to friendly outlets in advance so it can be massaged and spun to minimize the fallout.
Please click over and read the whole thing:…
And a reminder from @OnePinkFlamingo why this is a dead serious subject:

Because people are dead.

There were massive security breaches that led to the Chinese killing or imprisoning over a dozen of the CIA's assets in China from 2010 to 2012.…
