The partnership of Douglas Emhoff, husband of vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), with a company representing organizations of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), could generate conflicts of interest for Harris.
Emhoff is a partner in the investment services firm DLA Piper, which has represented CCP companies in the United States and Europe for nearly 30 years and has more than 140 lawyers at its service, according to National Pulse on Sept. 5.
DLA Piper raises questions about possible undue influence on the White House should the Biden-Harris formula win the Nov. 3 presidential election.
DLA Piper has received distinguished awards from CCP lawyers’ associations such as the China Business Law Journal and China Law and Practice and hires former CCP officials to serve with it.
Several of DLA Piper’s officials hold prominent positions on the CCP’s Senior Advisory Board, the China International Economic, and Trade Arbitration Commission (CIETAC), the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), and other of its organizations.
It also represents many CCP-owned companies, including two airlines and technology companies challenged by security issues in the United States such as ByteDance, and Tencent.
DLA Piper even advises the embassy in Canberra, Australia. It is involved in multibillion-dollar businesses.
The investments of Hunter Biden, the son of the Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden, in large companies also linked to the CCP, call attention.
One such company is Bohai Harvest, of which Hunter Biden owns 10 percent of the capital stock, according to Daily Caller.
These links with the CCP of people so close to the Democratic presidential formula are worrisome, even more so given the CCP’s preference for Biden and Harris to win the U.S. elections, according to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), on Aug. 9 on CNN.
