Why Is Adam Schiff Calling Foul After The Feds Arrested A Chinese Fugitive?

(Liberty Bell) – Federal agents have detained a Chinese researcher hiding out in her nation’s consulate in San Francisco, according to a senior Justice Department official.

According to the official, Juan Tang, a researcher at the University of California who had sought refuge in the consulate after being accused of visa fraud, “was a fugitive from justice until last night.”

Three other Chinese nationals were also detained after the U.S. ordered the Chinese consulate in Houston to close due to allegations of spying and intellectual property theft.

Tang and the others were charged with “visa fraud in connection with a scheme to lie about their status as members of the People’s Republic of China’s military forces, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), while in the United States conducting research,” the Department of Justice announced in a news release on Thursday, according to BizPac Review.

“These members of China’s People Liberation Army applied for research visas while hiding their true affiliation with the PLA,” Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers said. “This is another part of the Chinese Communist Party’s plan to take advantage of our open society and exploit academic institutions. We will continue to conduct this investigation together with the FBI.”

Tang had “made fraudulent statements” on her October 2019 visa application, according to the DOJ.

When asked “Have you ever served in the military,” Tang answered “No.”

In November of 2019 Tang was issued her fraudulently obtained a visa and entered in the U.S. the following month.

“As set forth in the Complaint, the FBI found a photograph of Tang in a military uniform and references to Tang’s employment at the Air Force Military Medical University, which has also been known as the Fourth Military Medical University,” the Justice Department release said.

“The FBI interviewed Tang on June 20. Although Tang denied having been a member of the military, an additional photograph of Tang in a different PLA military uniform was found on electronic media seized pursuant to a search warrant,” the statement continued.

“Tang denied serving in the Chinese military, claimed she did not know the meaning of the insignia on her uniform, and that wearing a military uniform was required for attendance at FMMU because it was a military school,” according to an interview with FBI agents on June 20 that was cited by attorneys in the July 20 court filing.

BPR adds:

A similar denial was noted by the DOJ for Kaikai Zhao, a graduate student studying machine learning and artificial intelligence at Indiana University, who was arrested on July 18.

While Chen Song, who was also arrested on July 18, claimed that she had only served in the Chinese military for a few months in 2011, she reportedly lied in her application in which she said she was a neurologist who was coming to the U.S. to conduct research at Stanford University.

“The affidavit alleges that these were lies, that Song was a member of the PLA when she entered and while she was in the United States, and that the hospital she listed on her visa as her employer was a cover for her true employer, the PLA,” the DOJ release stated.

Another person charged with visa fraud who was arrested last month claimed he had previously served as an Associate Professor in Medicine in the People’s Liberation Army but, according to the Justice Department, Xin Wang was still employed by the PLA.

In response to the U.S government’s call for the Houston Chinese consulate to close, the Chinese Communist Party retaliated by ordering the U.S. consulate in Chengdu, China to be closed.

According to U.S. officials on Friday, CNN reported, consulate officials “were directly involved in communications with researchers and guided them on what information to collect.”

You’d think that, in the face of our common foreign enemies, that the Democrats on capitol hill would have no problem with rooting out spies.

But no.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) accused the Trump administration of escalation tensions with China.

Because of course.

An official from the Justice Department noted that activities in Houston “are a microcosm, we believe, of a broader network of individuals in more than 25 cities that network is supported through the consulates here.”

“Consulates have been giving individuals in that network guidance on how to evade [and] obstruct our investigation. And you can infer from that the ability to task that [a] network of associates nationwide,” the official added.

On Thursday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the U.S. was implementing a new approach toward the Chinese Communist Party.

“We must admit our truth that should guide us in the years and decades to come, that if we want to have a free 21st century, and not the Chinese century of which Xi Jinping dreams, the old paradigm of blind engagement with China simply won’t get it done,” he said of Chinese President Xi Jinping.

“We opened our arms to Chinese citizens, only to see the CCP exploit our free and open society,” he added. “General Secretary Xi Jinping is a true believer in a bankrupt totalitarian ideology.”

NOW she’s standing up for the Communist Chinese Party?Nancy’s nephew-in-law(Newsom, the Ca. Gov.) ordered face masks from China that don’t work so great, when he could have had Honeywell (in Ca.) manufacture them & they would work better! Come to Ca. from China pregnant & have the baby born in USA & this kid is a US citizen.I could go on & on about Schiff & “farting” Swalwell but for what. I prefer to “think” there’s something in the drinking water that makes these politicians so crazy. The sad fact IS “because” “they” are such a BIG state, They RULE & the “rest of us peons” have to “listen” to Crazy Nancy” because The House” holds the purse strings. SOMETHING must be done about Ca. holding the rest of the USA hostage to “Nasty Nancy”‘s lunatic agenda.It’s time for “the Queen” to be taken down & I hope that Ca. “voters” have the guts & brains to do it!

  2. TRUMP 20/20 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  3. Just SMMFH. WTF!!! Training and educating our enemies that will one day use their training and education back on us…they will kill us and destroy this great nation. Stupid dumbfuq politicians.

  4. Why? Try this on for size,Shorty schiff is raising a ruckus because the people were brought by the Deep Dark State elites to put together another “collusion” plot to take Trump out. This time using the Chinese instead of the Russians. But my main crux of this is…if Shorty knows about it and condones it,then so does Pissy pelosi and Sh***y schumer! It’s time to sic Barr on them,specifically! It may just provide iron-clad proof that soros is the other driving force behind it all.

    • Shiff face, Nasty Pelosi & her nephew Gavel Newsome are all investors in early-stage Chinese companies like tik tok and they will benefit from Marxism. They don’t care if Maoism comes to America. They and their families & cronies will make more money. Plebes don’t matter to these corrupt phonies..

  5. All visas for Communist Chinese nationals Renee’s to be cancelled and no new visas issued. This includes education and research visas, we are training and educating our enemies whom we will eventually have to fight. That is excluding all the intellectual properties they have stolen over the years. Trade with China MUST STOP and all American businesses in China must be brought home or abandoned.

    BECAUSE HE’S
    A BUGGY EYED
    PIECE OF SCHIFF
    COMUNEST
    THATS WHY !!!!!
    HASN’T ANY ONE FIGURED THAT
    F A C T OUT BY NOW ??

  7. If it’s a Chinese researcher that’s been hiding in the China consulate, and if Adam Schiffilis is involved, you can bet your money it’s got something to do with COVID and its release in America. Strange coincidences: two weeks after our President called for equality in foreign trade with China, and midway into the Democrat’s sham impeachment wherein the stench of the left trying to oust the President based on lies and fabrications becomes known, coronavirus is released and becomes a pandemic. We usually find out about wrongdoing years later, I.e. Obama’s scandal ridden eight year dictatorship. China has been enjoying a 500 billion dollar advantage in foreign trade with America. It was supposed to be a short-lived way to help China after World War II. No other president followed thru with ending it in the last 75 years. By the way, Mexico enjoys a 180 billion dollar advantage and the EU a 120 billion dollar advantage. That’s close to a trillion dollars a year. Just equaling these trade deficits would go a long way to paying down the national debt.

  8. China and Chinese PLA. agenda is to overpower USA and outpace our progress scientific , economic , military , and all spheres of life . Government should all venues of Chinese and public should cooperate . All corporations who complains that China is stealing all secrets and does not follow international laws , intellectual property rights then why they keep their production facilities in China and use their cheap labor and getting richer ? Time has come to force them to come back here to give employment to Americans . We should get rid of elements who propagate and support Chinese infiltration in our universities , real estate and all other businesses .

  9. When it comes to ANY nation with a(n) Authoritarian or otherwise Marxist/Totalitarian government, the answer is deceptively simple: DON’T TRUST ANYBODY! This applies ESPECIALLY to embassies and consulates, where espionage is routinely undertaken under the mantle of diplomacy and “good international relations.” Russia and China are the primary offenders, but one can probably throw Viet Nam, Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela into the mix as well!

  10. The experiment with China has been a dismal failure. They took advantage of proffered friendship and returned it with deceit and subterfuge. The Chinese are not to be trusted and all future contacts should be adversarial. We have let termites into our house, its time to clean them out.

  11. Close our borders to Chinese nationals and their trinkets. Kick all Chinese nationals out and close down all their consulates. Repatriate all Chinese-owned businesses and properties in America, and confiscate their bank accounts. Repatriate all American businesses in China, or tax them out of existence, or invite the American business owners to renounce their citizenship.
    Adam Schifty is just another demonrat who profits from Chinese connections, business interests and illicit money. There are so many politicians involved with money-making ventures in China. If they speak up for China, they should be sanctioned as unpatriotic and unsupportive of a President. They are supposed to represent their constituency, and allude that they will to get elected; but once in office, they scurry away to the rat holes and dark corners of graft and greed so rampant in Washington.
