One of the statements, entitled "U.S. Imposes New Sanctions on People's Republic of China Actors Linked to Malign Activities," explains that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) both "at home and abroad harms U.S. interests and undermines the sovereignty of our allies and partners."
"The United States will use all countermeasures available, including actions to prevent People's Republic of China (PRC) companies and institutions from exploiting U.S. goods and technologies for malign purposes," the announcement goes on to reveal. "Today's actions mark yet another sign of our resolve."
Such actions include the Department of Commerce adding 59 PRC entities to its export-control Entity List. Four of these, we are told, provide "DNA-testing materials or high-technology surveillance equipment to the PRC government."
"We urge the Chinese Communist Party to respect the human rights of the people of China, including Tibetan Buddhists, Christians, Falun Gong members, Uyghur Muslims, and members of other ethnic and religious minority groups," the statement goes on to read.
Nineteen entities that have been identified as "systematically coordinating and committing more than a dozen instances of theft or trade secrets from U.S. corporations to advance the PRC defense industrial complex" are also being added to the Department of Commerce's Entity List.
These same 19 entities have been identified as "engaging in activities that undermine U.S. efforts to counter illicit trafficking in nuclear and other radioactive materials; or using U.S. exports to support the PLA and PRC defense industrial base, whose ultimate goal is to surpass the capabilities of other countries they view as competitors, particularly the United States."
In his second announcement, entitled "The United States Takes Actions Against Supporters of the Illegitimate Maduro Regime's Fraudulent Elections," Pompeo revealed that the U.S. has placed sanctions on "Ex-Cle Soluciones Biométricas C.A. (Ex-Cle C.A.) for their support of the illegitimate Maduro regime's fraudulent December 6 legislative elections."
The Treasury Department is also imposing sanctions against Guillermo Carlos San Agustin and Marcos Javier Machado Requena, both of whom "acted for or on behalf of" the aforementioned company.
San Augustin is a dual Argentine and Italian national who works as co-director, administrator, major shareholder, and ultimate beneficial owner of Ex-Cle C.A. Machado, a Venezuelan national, is also a co-director as well as the president and minority shareholder of Ex-Cle C.A.
This company currently holds multi-million dollar contracts with the Maduro regime, which the current U.S. government considers to be "illegitimate" due to the fact that Ex-Cle C.A. was involved in efforts to undermine and rig elections in Venezuela, "undermining democracy and suppressing the voices of the Venezuelan people."
Ex-Cle C.A. also helped the Maduro regime purchase thousands of voting machines from China, routing payments for these machines through "the Russian financial system."
"They shipped the voting machines through Iran using rogue airlines Mahan Air and Conviasa, both previously targeted by the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control," a press release explains.
Just a few days prior to Pompeo's announcements, Director of National Intelligence (DNI) John Ratcliffe made his own announcement that "there was foreign election interference by China, #Iran, and Russia in November of this year ."
Ratcliffe, as you may have also seen, dropped a bombshell about the perceived election results, suggesting that Joe Biden may not end up being inaugurated after all is said and done, come January.
