Federal law enforcement agencies are purchasing surveillance drones from a Chinese company the Pentagon has deemed a potential national security threat, Axios has learned.
Why it matters: Efforts to purge military and law enforcement agencies of potentially compromised Chinese technology have stalled amid bureaucratic red tape, and experts worry the federal government is needlessly exposing itself to snooping by malicious foreign actors.
In 2017, the Department of Homeland Security — the Secret Service’s parent agency — stated with “moderate confidence” that DJI was “providing U.S. critical infrastructure and law enforcement data to the Chinese government.”
In 2019, the Interior Department, which also uses DJI products, grounded its entire non-emergency drone fleet because of concerns about Chinese government intrusions.
The Commerce Department added DJI to an export blacklist last year after Bloomberg reported it had supplied surveillance technology to Chinese security forces in Xinjiang, where millions of Uighur Muslims have been forced into internment camps.
Donald Trump Jr responded:
Either the Biden Administration is REALLY STUPID or Joe is totally compromised by the Chinese Communists.
I'm open to either possibility. https://t.co/mTilHwd6bJ
