New York GOP Rep. Claudia Tenney questions if the Chinese spy balloon that was shot down off the coast of South Carolina is meant to be a distraction for something else that the Chinese Communist Party is behind. 

"You have a president that is now getting inundated with these types of bizarre crossings," Tenney told "Just the News, No Noise" Monday. "And I wonder, are they surveillance? Probably. Do we know? No. But we should. The other thing is, are these decoys? Is there something else going on that we should know about that China is doing and the Chinese Communist Party is involved?"

Yesterday the U.S. military shot down a suspicious object over Lake Huron. Previously, the United States downed three objects within a week that were believed to be surveillance balloons.

The New York congresswoman noted that China has done other things to undermine U.S. security.

"These aren't new things," said Tenney. "They've been stealing our intellectual property from our companies. They've been buying up land. They've been involved in all kinds of subterranean ways of getting into our country and we really have not paid attention."

According to Tenney, the solution is to really look into the companies in the United States doing business with the CCP and hold them accountable. 

"It's time that we get really serious," she stated. "We really need to bring our supply chain back. We really need to crack down on companies that are doing business with the Chinese Communist Party."
