U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, issued the following statement regarding the arrest of a Texas A&M University professor who worked with NASA and hid his connection with the Chinese Communist Party. 

“This is pretty simple: if you work for NASA, you can’t work for Chairman Xi. The Chinese Communist Party has a strategy to lie, cheat, and steal its way to technological dominance and we can’t let that happen. This arrest is good news and it ought to be a warning to others not to get into bed with Beijing.”
