Yeah, they pulled a FISA request and he denied them. And not once did they abduct and torture him for refusing. In China he would have been in jail and the Chinese government would have took his company and the keys. That's the difference I'm trying to get across. Yes they can backdoor, infiltrate and try to blackmail and intimidate. But they can't legally force legal citizens to do their bidding.
