China is trying to blackmail US legislators: Director of National Intelligence

John Rat­cliffe, the Direc­tor of Nation­al Intel­li­gence, warned in a CBS News inter­view on Thurs­day that Chi­na is try­ing “through black­mail, bribery, overt and covert oper­a­tions” to influ­ence leg­is­la­tors to pass “only laws that are favor­able to China.”

“I was so trou­bled by what I saw from the posi­tion as the Direc­tor of Nation­al Intel­li­gence that I went and briefed both the House and Sen­ate Intel­li­gence Com­mit­tees on this infor­ma­tion, which they found sur­pris­ing and trou­bling,” he added, refer­ring to a piece he wrote for The Wall Street Jour­nal, also on Thursday.
