U.S. intelligence agencies suspected in espionage of a possible Chinese agent Kristina Fan, who previously spent a lot of time with politicians of the Democratic Party in California.
It is noted that the Chinese woman moved to San Francisco in 2011. While studying at a local university, she was engaged in activism, heading the student association of the diaspora. During this time, she managed to establish contacts with local politicians and obtained the position of donation collector for Congressman Eric Suolwell. In addition, the Chinese woman is ascribed to sexual intercourse and it is claimed that she slept with at least two mayors. At the same time in 2015, Fang suddenly returned to China – probably noticing the surveillance of intelligence agencies.
August 18 it was reported that in the U.S. was exposed as a spy for more than 10 years in favor of China 67-year-old ex-CIA employee. We are talking about a naturalized U.S. citizen Alexander Yuk Ching Ma. He is accused of espionage for a fee: it is alleged that for the first time he received 50 thousand dollars in 2001 from the representative of Beijing intelligence for the first array of data. Subsequently, this scheme was repeated regularly for 10 years, and the rewards were not limited to money. The detainee is facing a life sentence.
Relations between China and the United States have been tense lately, with countries waging trade wars. In addition, serious problems in relations arise from disagreements over the Coronavirus and Hong Kong.
