ICYMI: Ratcliffe, O’Brien, Kudlow warn S. 2992 could make the US vulnerable to China

Washington, D.C. (06/15/2022) – A new letter from former White House national security and economic advisers, including former National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien, former Director of the National Economic Council Larry Kudlow, and former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe, warns leaders in Congress that bills like the American Innovation and Choice Online Act (S.2992) would undermine U.S. national security and give foreign competitors an unfair advantage over American businesses. 

The letter cites the benefit it (S.2992) would give to foreign competitors as too great of a risk to U.S. national security…

“We cannot afford to cede this important ground to Beijing,” the letter stated. “Government mandates will lead to more malign activity by Russia, China, Iran and North Korea, not to mention cyber mercenaries or non-state criminal actors.”

…They insist that only the “innovation and ingenuity” of the American private sector can stop President Xi Jinping and the CCP from achieving their goal of “global dominance” over the West.
