"Director, what in your view... is the counterintelligence risk posed to U.S. national security from Chinese students, particularly those in advanced programs in science and mathematics?"

During an open hearing of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on worldwide threats on Tuesday, February 13, 2018, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio [R-FL] asked FBI Director Christopher Wray about “Director, what in your view... is the counterintelligence risk posed to U.S. national security from Chinese students, particularly those in advanced programs in science and mathematics?

Wray replied “The use of non-traditional collectors, especially in the academic setting—whether it’s professors, scientists, students—we see in almost every field office that the FBI has around the country. It’s not just in major cities. It’s in small ones as well, it’s across basically every discipline. And I think the level of naivete on the part of the academic sector about this creates its own issues”

Further discussion between Senator Rubio and Director Wray continued about Confucius Institutes on U.S. campuses.
