Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) left President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice silent this week when he pressed them about why the administration has not sanctioned communist China for repeated cyberattacks against the United States. Cruz, who also noted the administration’s weak record on Russia, made the remarks during a Senate hearing on Tuesday when he was questioning Richard Downing, the U.S. Department of Justice Deputy Assistant Attorney General of the Criminal Division. “China has repeatedly used ransomware and cyber-attacks to harm America,” Cruz said. “Not only has it attacked pipelines in an effort to cause physical damage, but just this year, hackers affiliated with the Chinese government attacked tens of thousands of computers across tens of thousands of organizations, including a significant number of small businesses, towns, cities, and local governments.” “The Biden administration has not imposed any sanctions on China. Instead, the administration announced that it is dropping criminal cases against five Chinese scientists who, with the help of consular officials, hid their affiliations with China’s military in order to infiltrate our nation,” Cruz continued.
