After repeated decisions made by Democrats in Congress, which tend to protect the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its controversial policies, questioning eyes are turned towards them.
The situation is further complicated by the fact that companies that have benefited financially from legislative favors are pouring large donations into the party’s coffers, as reported in The Federalist of June 29.
Refusal to denounce Uighur slave labor
One of the most illustrative cases that occurred recently was the rejection by 217 Democratic representatives of a motion that called for exposing companies that take advantage of Uighur slave labor sold to them by the CCP in the Xinjiang region of China.
According to research conducted by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), 40 of the 82 multinationals that exploit concentration camp labor made donations to U.S. political parties.
Of these contributions at least 88 percent went to the Democrats. Apple and Nike stand out, quadrupling their donations to fight against the Uighur Forced Labor Prevention Act, which prohibits the importation of products manufactured in this way. Coca-Cola and BMW, among others, are also involved.
In fact, Nike CEO John Donahoe declared on June 24 that the company is a “brand of China and for China,” according to National Review, although he had earlier shown himself to be “concerned” about the CCP’s violation of human rights in the Xinjinang area.
Democratic Rep. involved in spying case
On the other hand, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi insists on keeping on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, with access to the nation’s top secrets, Rep. Eric Swalwell.
Swalwell’s relations with the Chinese spy Christine Fang, or Fang Fang, who established intimate relations with U.S. politicians to get closer to political power caused a great scandal.
For his part, a senior Capitol Hill official who preferred to remain anonymous estimated Chinese influence infiltrating the Democratic Party to be an “eight and a half” on a scale of one to ten.
“When you have Pelosi and the DNC having a fundraiser where you have CCP members at the fundraiser, [it’s] just not good,” this source told The Federalist.
Biden family business with China
Additionally, business dealings with CCP–linked companies by the president’s family, Joe Biden, cause concern from when he was vice president during the Obama administration.
His son, Hunter Biden, founded the company BHR, which traded with China. A Wall Street Journal analysis indicates that “the company funneled at least $2.5 billion in automotive, energy, mining and technology deals on behalf of its investors, prioritizing overseas projects.”
Hunter’s former business partner, Tony Bobulinski, stated that Joe Biden is “committed” to the Chinese Communist Party. “I just don’t see, given the history here and the facts, how Joe can’t be influenced in some manner based on the history that they have here with CEFC,” Bobulinski told Tucker Carlson on Fox News.
CEFC was a CCP–related energy company associated with another of Hunter’s companies, which was run by Bobulinski.
Obstacles to investigate origin of the Coronavirus
On the other hand, for Wisconsin Republican Rep. Mike Gallagher, the influence of the Chinese regime on the Democratic Party may prevent a real investigation into the origins of the coronavirus that appeared in Wuhan, which has caused disasters and millions of deaths around the world.
“I’m sensing that we’re going to hit this big roadblock, which is the concern within a wing of the Biden administration and on the left about provoking the Chinese Communist Party,” Gallagher warned according to The Federalist.
Gallagher perceives that the Democrats’ reluctance to indict the regime could be a product of Chinese corporate dollars flowing into Democratic campaign coffers.
