Cliff Sims, former Deputy Director for National Intelligence (DNI), was ripped on Monday Politico for publishing a “fake headline”It was claimed that “Biden admin offers to brief Trump officials on past Chinese spy balloon incursions.”
To distract from President Joe Biden’s hesitation to shoot down the Chinese spy balloon until it crossed the continental United States, the establishment media has claimed in recent days that at least three Chinese spy balloons flew over U.S. airspace during the Trump administration.
These claims were refuted by former Trump officials.
The PoliticoArticle from Sunday, alleged “Biden administration is willing to brief former Trump officials on newly discovered intelligence that China sent spy balloons into U.S. airspace during their time in charge.”Anonymous sources were used in the article. “asked not to be named in order to discuss sensitive information.”
Biden White House will brief Trump administration officials on the abject failure of U.S. security against Chinese spy ballons that they failed to notice while under their surveillance. https://t.co/KdPw3Fb4U9

Sims said on Twitter Politico’s story from Sunday was false because he is in contact with “nearly everyone”Who would’ve known that a Chinese spy ball flew over the United States in the Trump administration?
“Politico is Dems’ go-to for a fake headline,”He stated. “I’m in touch with nearly everyone who’d be a logical person to receive such a briefing & no one’s been contacted. And why would they participate in Team Biden’s CYA? If y’all want us to deal with China for you, then give us a shout.”
Sims included an image in his tweet of the infamous and now discredited Politico story, written by Natasha Bertrand, which used “dozens of former intel officials” to push a false and misleading narrative about the origins of Hunter’s laptop:
Dems go-to source for fake headlines is Politico
I’m in touch with nearly everyone who’d be a logical person to receive such a briefing & no one’s been contacted.
They would be unable to participate in Team Biden’s CYA.

Multiple former Trump administration officials have supported Sims’ assertion, including former National Security Advisers John Bolton and Robert O’Brien, former DNI John Ratcliffe, and former acting DNI Ric Grennell. Trump, the former President of the United States, also refuted claims about Chinese spy ball incursions in his time.
“Biden’s DoD is shamelessly using an anonymous source to say that Chinese balloons flew over the US under Trump – and the Trump team allowed it,” Grennell tweeted. “It is a lie. We never heard this – ever. Congress should demand @SecDef tell the truth. Shame on @JakeSullivan46.”
Grennell added the media is trying to provide cover for the Biden administration’s lies.
“And shame on the DC media activists who continue to allow the Biden team to be so weak by giving them aid & comfort in their lies and weakness,”He stated.
She started the lie that Hunter’s laptop was Russian disinformation – and hasn’t stopped the propaganda since.
Naturally @cnnAnd @jaketapper embrace her. https://t.co/6kIcrm1eqX
