After the Obama years, the Chinese foreign presence in this country has really hit new heights of chutzpah.
The Peeps were not only using their Houston consulate as the base for a massive spy operation seeking to steal American research, but the San Francisco consulate is allegedly harboring a fugitive spy wanted by the FBI.
A researcher who lied about her affiliation with a Chinese military university entered the Chinese consulate in San Francisco after being interviewed by the FBI on June 20 about alleged visa fraud and has remained there, according to an FBI assessment in court filings dated July 20.
“It is highly unusual for a Chinese diplomatic post to associate so closely with a suspect in an intellectual property theft-related case,” said Minyao Wang, a New York-based lawyer who has worked on IP theft cases related to China.
“Sheltering a defendant in a criminal case by using the diplomatic immunity of a consular building, if true, is really extraordinary.”
China does a lot of “extraordinary” things. It’s about time that we made them stop.
