As an aside, U.S. legislators couldn't care less what UN functionaries think they're obligated to do, and wisely so. Even Democrats know better than to tell Americans, "Look, the UN said we have to do this."

It's not so much an intelligence breach as a slow and methodical annihilation:

Lost against the background of the Snowden defection, Putin's invasion of the Ukraine and Syria and the beating to death of a Russian media czar in Washington DC is the memory one of the major fiascos of the Obama administration: the rollup of the CIA's agent network in China. The New York Times reported in May 2017 that "the Chinese government systematically dismantled C.I.A. spying operations in the country starting in 2010, killing or imprisoning more than a dozen sources over two years and crippling intelligence gathering there for years afterward."
