Former Trump Advisor: China Has Enough Stolen Data to ‘Build a Dossier on Every Single American Adult’

Matthew Pottinger, a former national security advisor to President Trump, revealed in Senate testimony this week that the Chinese Communist Party has enough stolen data on American citizens to “build a dossier on every single American adult.”

During a Senate Select Intelligence Committee hearing, Pottinger detailed the extent to which China has stolen data from the United States to undertake an enormous surveillance operation of foreign citizens, including Americans.

“Assembling dossiers on people has always been a feature of Leninist regimes, but Bejing’s penetration of digital networks worldwide, including using 5G networks … has really taken this to a new level,” Pottinger said:

The [Chinese Communist] Party now compiles dossiers on millions of foreign citizens around the world using the material that it gathers to influence and target and intimidate, reward, blackmail, flatter, humiliate, and ultimately divide and conquer. [Emphasis added]

Beijing has stolen sensitive data sufficient to build a dossier on every single American adult and on many of our children too, who are fair game under Bejing’s rules of political warfare. [Emphasis added]

Among other solutions, Pottinger suggested the U.S. “stop funding technologies in China that are used to advance the surveillance state and the military of Beijing.” – READ MORE
