Matt Pottinger has confirmed to the London think tank Policy Exchange that China is constructing ‘digital dossiers’ of millions of people around the world. The comments of Pottinger, who is the Deputy National Security Adviser to US President Donald Trump, follow the revelation that a Chinese military contractor had a database with profiles of over 2.4 million people globally, with the Australians listed including Prime Minister Scott Morrison and technology billionaire Mike Cannon-Brookes. Pottinger says the compilation of such ‘dossiers’, aimed at influencing, humiliating, dividing and blackmailing opponents, has always been a feature of Leninist regimes.
