U.S. Military: spycraft was part of the Chinese Communist Party’s surveillance program

The U.S. Navy continues to search the Atlantic Ocean for debris

A full Congress has finally received a classified briefing about the Chinese Spy balloon. The briefing was broken up into two separate sessions in Washington D.C.

First, members of the U.S. House of Representatives received the classified briefing on Capitol Hill and then Senators were briefed on the international incident.

But lawmakers say they still have serious concerns and many unanswered questions.

The confidential briefing comes on the same day that senior U.S. military and national security officials warn and have confirmed that spy balloon shot down off South Carolina’s Coast on Saturday was part of a major surveillance program run by China’s military.

The spycraft crossed the entire continental U.S. from coast to coast and was outfitted with antennas likely capable of collecting communications. The balloon was also equipped with large solar panels capable of powering an array of intelligence – collection sensors.

Officials also say that Beijing has used balloon technology over more than 40 countries across five continents.

On Thursday, FBI officials announced that most of the evidence relating to the surveillance aircraft is still underwater.

One day prior, China said the debris belongs to them.

Currently, the U.S. Navy continues to search the Atlantic Ocean for debris.

Bad weather is expected to roll in over the weekend so the Navy is racing against the clock to recover as much as they can.

BREAKING: Shots ring out at Trump rally

Published

on

Donald Trump was whisked off the stage at a rally in Butler, Pennsylvania after loud noises rang through the crowd.

Trump was showing off a chart of border crossing numbers when bangs started ringing through the crowd. Trump could be seen reaching with his right hand toward his neck. There appeared to be blood on his face.

He quickly ducked behind the riser as agents from his protective detail rushed the stage and screams rang out from the crowd. The bangs continued as agents tended to him on stage.

His motorcade has left the venue.

In a statement, Trump says he is “fine” and says he is being checked at a medical facility.

Donald Trump was safe, the U.S. Secret Service and his campaign said on Saturday after multiple shots rang out at a rally by the Republican presidential candidate in Pennsylvania as video showed Trump grimacing and raising a hand to his right ear.
The former president had just started his speech when gunshots erupted and Trump and other rally attendees hit the deck. Secret Service agents swarmed around him and live video showed blood on the right side of Trump’s face and ear.
 
Trump repeatedly raised his fist in the air, with an American flag visible behind him, as security ushered him away.
“The Secret Service has implemented protective measures and the former president is safe,” a spokesperson for the agency said on X after what it called an incident.
“This is now an active Secret Service investigation and further information will be released when available.”
