US senators will hear from Pentagon officials on the alleged Chinese surveillance balloon and “how the US military stacks up against China” at a Feb. 15 classified briefing, Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said.

The previously scheduled briefing for the full Senate gained urgency after the US on Saturday shot down what it said was a Chinese surveillance balloon that flew across the country. China says it was a civilian craft that went off-course.
