The identity of the Chinese defector who has been working with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) for months now has recently been revealed. Turns out he is no small fish either.
It is believed that Dong Jingwei isn’t just a top internal security official for the Guoanbu, the CCP’s Ministry of State Security (MSS), apparently, he was the chief of that agency & therefore China’s number 1- “Spy-Catcher.” And he’s brought a plethora of jaw-dropping information with him.
According to RedState, China’s counterintelligence chief flew to the United States in mid-February, to (allegedly) visit his daughter at the university she attends in California. After landing in California he got in contact with DIA officials telling them of his plans to defect and the information he’d brought with him. Dong then “hid in plain sight” for about two weeks before disappearing into DIA custody. The information he reportedly brought with him is mind-blowing.
Not only does Dong have detailed information about China’s special weapons systems, the Chinese military’s operation of the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the origins of SARS-CoV-2, and the Chinese government’s assets and sources within the United States; Dong has extremely embarrassing and damaging information about our intelligence community and government officials in the “terabytes of data” he’s provided to the DIA.
The Washington Free Beacon reported on some of the stunning information, provided by Dong to the DIA:
Hundreds of Chinese nationals are the subject of a federal probe after law enforcement officials flagged their travel at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Chinese nationals returned to the United States earlier than expected in January 2020, often having modified their travel plans.
The episode is recounted in an internal report that circulated among various national security and law enforcement agencies on June 3. That report surmises that the Chinese students returned to the United States earlier than expected in order to avoid future travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The team examined 58,000 inbound Chinese F/J visa holders in the [Passenger Name Record] database and identified 396 individuals whose return travel was [scheduled] after January 2020 but had returned in January 2020,” the report reads.
Redstate reports that Dong told DIA debriefers that at least a third of Chinese students attending US universities are PLA assets or part of the Thousand Talents Plan and that many of the students are here under pseudonyms. One reason for using pseudonyms is that many of these students are the children of high-ranking military and party leaders.
