FBI chief ‘blown away’ by scale of Chinese spying in the US

Chinese spying in the US has become so widespread the FBI is launching an average of two counterintelligence investigations a day to challenge the activity, the director of the bureau has said, accusing Beijing of launching hacking operations and stealing American innovations.

Christopher Wray said he was “blown away” by the scale of Chinese efforts to steal US technology when he became FBI director in 2017.
