For many it is not surprising to hear that the Chinese government is improving its intel and disinformation tactics within the US. After all, the US contains perhaps the highest concentration of anti-communist and anti-socialist people in the world (living side by side with extreme leftists, of course). The US has also been a relatively safe place for Chinese dissidents to voice their criticisms of the CCP, until recently.
An active DHS agent and a Department of Human Services agent along with at least three other suspects now face official indictments for "acting as Chinese agents" while spying on dissidents and vocal critics of the CCP while living in the US. Agents divulged personal information on activists including passport information on one man's daughter.
Though the case was first revealed by the Department Of Justice in May, the greater details have only been recently revealed.
