House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday had some advice for US Olympic athletes in Beijing: Shut your mouth and do not anger the ChiComs.
Speaker Pelosi on Thursday testified at the Congressional-Executive Commission on China hearing regarding human rights abuses in China.
Pelosi warned US Olympic athletes not to speak out against the CCP lest they risk “incurring the anger of the Chinese government.”
“I would say to our athletes, you’re there to compete – do not risk incurring the anger of the Chinese government because they are ruthless,” Pelosi said. “I know there is a temptation on the part of some to speak out while they are there. I respect that, but I also worry about what the Chinese government might do to their reputations, to their families.”
The CCP has already been caught spying on athletes’ phone at the Beijing Winter Olympics.

China also brought back Covid anal swab testing two weeks before the Olympics.
