John Ratcliffe, the Director of National Intelligence, warned people in the incoming Biden camp about the biggest threat to US national security, the Chinese government.
"People that equate other things, or say, oh, you know, Russia is a greater threat, they are politicizing intelligence.
"I am hoping now that the election is over, now that people have voted, and if there is a Biden administration, that they will get past politicizing intelligence and be honest about China and acknowledge that China, and China alone is the greatest national security threat that we face."
During the course of the interview on Fox News, Ratcliffe continued:
"All of the threat streams that we have, from all aspects, militarily, economically, supply chain issues, foreign investment, technologically, cyber issues, cyber warfare, 5G, telecommunications — China is in all of those and they are the only country to be in that space and the only country that threatens American supremacy."
"Generals will always tell you that you want to fight from the high ground because it is easier to fight downhill than it is to fight uphill," Ratcliffe said.
"The urgency here is, in part, because we still are the dominant superpower. China wants to change that, but right now we have the ability to meet this challenge fighting downhill."
Ratcliffe also claimed during the interview that "a number of members of Congress went to a number of different publications and leaked classified information."
