ANALYSTS: TRUE. Chuck Grassley Says Russia ‘hysteria’ overshadows China threat.

At a Judiciary hearing today on Chinese espionage activities, Grassley (R-Iowa) said the media hysteria over Russia neglects “China’s efforts to overtake the United States as the world’s preeminent superpower in all phases of society.”

His remarks come as the Trump administration plans a major push this week to punish China over its intellectual property theft and amid increasing tensions between Washington and Beijing over charges against a top Huawei executive.

But Republicans, including President Donald Trump, have also sought to downplay the effects of Russia’s 2016 election interference campaign by increasingly pointing to China as a malign force on the world stage.

That’s Politico‘s Tim Starks, still hanging tight to that slender COLLUSION! reed.
