Hassam Hameed-TDO-31.01.2018- CIA chief Mike Pompeo claimed Chinese covert operations to be more of a threat than Russian attempts of Subversion. Chinese are involved in stealing commercial information, penetration into schools and hospitals, according to him. Mr. Pompeo was a conservative Republican amid becoming spy chief.
"Think about the scale of the two economies," Mr Pompeo said in his interview of Russia and China."The Chinese have a much bigger footprint upon which to execute that mission than the Russians do". He said that western powers should put an collective effort to dismantle Chinese influence. It's not US alone been affected by such attempts, Europe and UK are equally vulnerable to China’s infiltration or cyber theft attempts.
US ex spy chief had to resign for holding back classified documents in a case which which resulted in annihilation of US spy network in China.
