A New York City police officer was arrested and charged with “acting as an illegal agent of the People’s Republic of China (PRC),” on Monday.

Baimadajie Angwang was accused of reporting the activities of Chinese citizens in New York to PRC officials, and “actively developing intelligence sources within the Tibetan community in the United States.” He was also charged with wire fraud, making false statements, and obstructing an official proceeding.   

Angwang is a native Tibetan from the PRC, who became a naturalized U.S. citizen. In addition to serving on the NYPD’s community affairs unit, he is also a U.S. Army reservist that maintained a “SECRET”- level security clearance.  

In a press release, John C. Demers, the Assistant Attorney General for National Security warned that local authorities need to be aware that they’re susceptible to Chinese espionage. “According to the allegations, the Chinese government recruited and directed a U.S. citizen and member of our nation’s largest law enforcement department to further its intelligence gathering and repression of Chinese abroad.”

A joint investigation between NYPD’s Intelligence and Internal Affairs Bureau and the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division revealed that Angwang has allegedly been acting under the direction of New York’s PRC Consulate since as early as 2014. 

He is accused of providing PRC officials with access to NYPD officials and working with a handler from PRC’s United Front Work Department, which is responsible for “neutralizing potential opponents” of China.

Court documents revealed that in 2019, Angwang lied on government background investigation forms that he had any contact with foreign nationals, a foreign government, or its consulate.  

NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said that Angwang, a member of the 111th Precinct, “violated every oath he took in this country. One to the United States, another to the U.S. Army, and a third to this Police Department.”

Angwang faces up to 55 years in prison if found guilty.

Help President Trump Stop Joe Biden [ACT NOW]


  1. These people come into the U.S., benefit immensely from the bounty of America, and then they show their true colors: “Yeah, I’ll get some of that there ‘cash’ and spy on people and take money from the Red Chinese!” I’ve got a good idea: Don’t send them to jail! Revoke their citizenship and send them back to the place they really love: Red China!

  2. Jail…only long enough to prove this all in Court. IF this is PROVEN….then REVOKE his Naturalized Citizenship. Return him to the place he’s loyal to: Red China!

    1. Let’s see: He’s a naturalized citizen, then if he’s found guilty that makes him a traitor and that’s a federal crime punishable by death. Don’t waste taxpayer money leaving him in jail. If guilty, one $1.25 .300 round from a firing squad will do the trick! Nuff said!

  3. It is amazing that Trump has convinced his followers that China is the only spying country that operates in this USA, when the fact is that every embassy in every country is the spy head quarters for that country. Now what Trump is pushing will come back to haunt this USA maybe not immediately but in the long run it will happen, and the USA will pay dearly.

    1. Another lie perpetuated by the braindead. Perhaps Robert can recall when Trump said that “… China is the only spying country that operates in this USA, …” I would like to see the video of this exchange to see the entire conversation. How will this declaration haunt us? Less CCP spies, less unrestricted/stolen trade with the CCP, Less classified information passed to the CCP? I’m good with that.

  4. Doesn’t sound like the FBI performs great background inspections for security clearances. Especially, former foreign nationals. Failed both State dept & FBI. Maybe if they weren’t concentrating on framing POTUS and campaign, they could have done a better job. What about Omar ? Who lied to get into this country and lied to get citizenship. How did she get a congressional security clearance ? How does Diane Feinstein have a spy on the payroll for 20 years ? The Federal Bureau of Incompetence.

  5. Treason as a Citizen.!!! Hang m OR shoot m. Prison is foolish n sends the Wrong message. Used Bacon Oiled bullets tor a warning to others…..
