Pompeo warns governors of Chinese infiltration into US: ‘It’s happening in your state’
“Competition with China is happening. It’s happening in your state,” Pompeo added. “In fact, I’d be surprised if most of you in the audience had not been lobbied by the Chinese Communist Party directly.”
He said groups loyal to communist China are operating out in the open in Virginia, Minnesota, Florida and dozens of other states all around the country. Other Chinese groups, however, practice their nefarious actions in the shadows in an attempt to exercise influence over U.S. citizens and lawmakers.
Pompeo cited a letter from a diplomat at the Chinese Consul in New York to the speaker of an unnamed state legislature, advising that U.S. officials refrain from independent interaction with Taiwan.
The secretary said this isn’t an uncommon event and that Chinese officials based in the U.S. are actively seeking to sow seeds of chaos at the state and local level — specifically in the realm of education on college campuses and K-12 classrooms.
“Maybe some of you have heard about the time when the Chinese consulate paid the UC San Diego students to protest the Dalai Lama,” he continued. “It shows depth. It shows systemization. It shows intent.”
He added: “Chinese Communist party officials, too, are cultivating relationships with county school boards and local politicians — Often through what are known as ‘Sister City Programs’ … This competition is well underway.”
