FBI Still Can’t Answer Congress On CCP Police Stations

Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) is blasting the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for refusing to provide Congress with satisfactory answers about the bureau’s handling of secret Chinese police stations inside the United States.

Earlier this month, the FBI finally arrested two Chinese individuals that were operating a secret police station in New York City for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to oppress Chinese dissidents living within the United States. The world has been aware of this issue for some time, as these secret police stations exist in numerous locations around the world.

In response to the arrests, the House Select Committee on the CCP sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray demanding answers.

However, during a briefing on the matter, the FBI apparently “could not answer basic questions,” according to Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI).

During a Thursday appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Your World,” Rep. Newhouse expressed frustration with the FBI’s lack of adequate answers on the issue — while also questioning how private organizations were able to discover the problem long before the FBI did.

Fox News host Charles Payne began the segment by asking whether Newhouse was “satisfied” with the FBI’s responses thus far.

“Are you satisfied with the answers, with the responses that you received today?” he asked.

“I’ve got to say, not yet,” Newhouse responded. “I liked some of the things he started to say. But there [are] a lot of questions that remain unanswered, not just for us here in Congress, but I think the American people want to know what’s going on with the CCP here in our own backyard.”

He went on to argue that the U.S. should be a “haven from persecution” and not a “hunting ground” for communist China to secretly oppress dissidents.

“We should — in our country — the United States of America should be a haven from persecution,” Newhouse said. “It should not be a hunting ground for the [Chinese Communist Party]. We’ve got to figure out what’s going on, combat it, and put a stop to it.”

“Why would a nonprofit think tank be able to find out this information [on] these police stations that are located, not just in our country, but in countries around the world, before our own Federal Bureau of Investigation found that information out? Still, like I said, we have a lot of questions,” he added.
