Speaking to reporters at the White House Monday afternoon, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre justified the Biden administration decision to allow a Chinese spy balloon, which was loaded with self-sabotage explosives, to traverse across the United States before it was shot down over the Atlantic ocean on Saturday.

According to reports, Biden administration officials watched the balloon come in from China and did nothing to stop it from entering the continental U.S. 

Further, Jean-Pierre claimed Trump administration officials failed to catch a number of Chinese spy balloon incursions into the U.S. when President Donald Trump was in office. When asked to specify who and how, Jean-Pierre gave a jumbled non-answer. Trump administration officials deny awareness the incursions ever happened, including former National Security Advisor John Bolton, former Deputy National Security Advisor KT McFarland, former Defense Secretary Mark Esper, former CIA Director and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

As far as consequences for China, it doesn't appear there will be any.
