Perhaps the most disturbing discovery of the briefing is that this sort of infiltration has occurred several times before, including throughout the administration of previous President Donald Trump.

“(The People’s Republic of China) government surveillance balloons transited the continental United States briefly at least three times during the prior administration and once that we know of at the beginning of this administration, but never for this duration of time,” a defense official said.
