Prepared Floor Remarks by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa
On China Targeting U.S. Research
Monday, June 29, 2020
In June of last year, I held an oversight hearing about foreign threats to taxpayer funded research.
My goal is to ensure that the government is doing its job to detect and deter these threats.
Since COVID, America’s greatest minds are working hard to develop a vaccine.
Their research will impact the health of Americans and the world.
According to the FBI, China has targeted our COVID research to potentially steal our work product.
Our government and private sector must guard and fight back against these malicious attacks by the Chinese Communist government.
The health of our people and the world depend on it.
