Ratcliffe, Grenell call BS on sudden 'discoveries' about Trump admin and Chinese spy balloons

A story that caught on after the Chinese spy balloon was shot down over the Atlantic off the east coast of the U.S. was that something similar happened multiple times during the Trump administration.

The attempts to deflect any blame from the Biden administration for allowing the Chinese balloon to float over the entire U.S. over the course of a few days stemmed from a Defense Department statement that included this:

Long before the shoot down, U.S. officials took steps to protect against the balloon’s collection of sensitive information, mitigating its intelligence value to the Chinese. The senior defense official said the recovery of the balloon will enable U.S. analysts to examine sensitive Chinese equipment. “I would also note that while we took all necessary steps to protect against the PRC surveillance balloon’s collection of sensitive information, the surveillance balloon’s overflight of U.S. territory was of intelligence value to us,” the official said. “I can’t go into more detail, but we were able to study and scrutinize the balloon and its equipment, which has been valuable.”

The balloon did not pose a military or physical threat. Still its intrusion into American airspace over several days was an unacceptable violation of U.S. sovereignty. The official said Chinese balloons briefly transited the continental United States at least three times during the prior administration.

Isn’t it strange how the Deep State that was churning out anything and everything to make Trump look bad when he was in office is only just now mentioning this after Biden’s display of weakness?

Those sudden claims had former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe spotting some fake news:

Additionally, former acting DNI under Trump, Richard Grenell, shot down the most recent spin obviously intended to soften the PR blow for Biden:

The media came up with anything and everything while Trump was president to try and show what a bad job he was doing, but the deep staters didn’t bring up this particular claim until just this week? Please.
