The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) represents both the “leading and most consequential threat” to US national security and leadership globally, a top American intelligence official told lawmakers as Senators called for taking urgent steps to address the growing Chinese challenge.

“The CCP represents both the leading and most consequential threat to US national security and leadership globally and its intelligence specific ambitions and capabilities make it, for us, our most serious and consequential intelligence rival,” Avril Haines, Director of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence told members of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

“During the past year, the threat has been additionally complicated by a deepening collaboration with Russia, which also remains an area obvious of intense focus for the intelligence community,” she said during a hearing on worldwide threat assessment.
