Our enemy is not Russia , it is China

Nested on the servers’ motherboards, the testers found a tiny microchip, not much bigger than a grain of rice, that wasn’t part of the boards’ original design. Amazon reported the discovery to U.S. authorities, sending a shudder through the intelligence community. Elemental’s servers could be found in Department of Defense data centers, the CIA’s drone operations, and the onboard networks of Navy warships. And Elemental was just one of hundreds of Supermicro customers.

During the ensuing top-secret probe, which remains open more than three years later, investigators determined that the chips allowed the attackers to create a stealth doorway into any network that included the altered machines. Multiple people familiar with the matter say investigators found that the chips had been inserted at factories run by manufacturing subcontractors in China.

In addition Sen. Dianne Feinstein has some explaining to do.
“I sometimes say that in my last life maybe I was Chinese.”—Sen. Dianne Feinstein D/Ca.
As media, intelligence agency, and political scrutiny of foreign meddling is seemingly at its apex, a story with big national security implications involving a high-ranking senator with access to America’s most sensitive intelligence information has been hiding in plain sight. According to four former intelligence officials, in the 2000s, a staffer in Senator Dianne Feinstein’s San Francisco field office was reporting back to the MSS [China’s Ministry of State Security, its intelligence and security apparatus]. While this person, who was a liaison to the local Chinese community, was fired, charges were never filed against him. (One former official reasoned this was because the staffer was providing political intelligence and not classified information—making prosecution far more difficult.) The suspected informant was ‘run’ by officials based at China’s San Francisco Consulate, said another former intelligence official. The spy’s handler ‘probably got an award back in China’ for his work, noted this former official, dryly.

    During the Cuban crisis, a friend of mine, a jet pilot, said those same words to me! He added, however, that Russia would be our ally!

    "Our" threat? Are you speaking for individuals with natural moral rights to live their own lives and trade with whomever they please without penalty? Or only "we" as Americans? Is anybody here able to think in principle?

    Personally, I'm far more worried that there are US senators who believe in "past lives," than that one of them thinks she was Chinese. Feinstein is from San Francisco: there are a lot of Chinese-Americans there, or didn't you (want to) know?
