In early June, RedState editor Jennifer Van Laar broke an exclusive story: Sources within the intelligence community had confirmed to the outlet that a high-ranking official from the Chinese Communist Party had defected to the United States in February and has been quietly working with the Defense Intelligence Agency. However, the DIA did not disclose the defector’s existence to any individuals outside of its Clandestine Service network until recently, the sources alleged, over concerns that “Chinese spies or sources” may have infiltrated other U.S. intelligence agencies, including as the FBI or the CIA. According to the RedState report, the sources said “the defector has direct knowledge of special weapons programs in China, including bioweapons programs.” They reportedly told Redstate that the individual had “provided an extensive, technically detailed debrief to US officials” and that DIA officials consider the information “legitimate.” Additionally, RedState reported that “U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) personnel detailed to DIA have corroborated very technical details of information provided by the defector.”
