“Xi’s Attempts to Silence His Critics in the U.S. Aren’t Going to Work”

Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, issued the following statement after DOJ announced charges against Chinese intelligence officers for spying on CCP dissidents and pro-democracy activists in the U.S.

“The Chinese Communist Party’s attempt to reach beyond its borders has been brought to light by the good work of our intelligence community. Chairman Xi and the CCP want to silence their critics across the globe, but that’s not going to fly in the U.S. We need to stay vigilant because the CCP isn’t going to stop here, we’ve got to keep shining the light on the truth about Chairman Xi’s murderous regime.”
