Top allies of Joe Biden have been revealed to have connections to a suspicious nonprofit organization that is closely linked to the ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP), as reported by the Washington Free Beacon.
The group in question is the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations (NCUCR), which is funded by such companies as Facebook and Disney. Among the most prominent figures in Biden’s circle who are known to have worked with this group are former Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew, who served as a director at the organization until May 2020, and became chairman of the group in January.
Another is Kurt Campbell, who is currently in charge of Asian policy at the National Security Council after being appointed by Biden. Campbell was endorsed by Stephen Orlins, the president of the NCUCR in an interview with Chinese government-run media, when he called Campbell a “terrific” expert in China policy. Orlins added that he believed Campbell would fix the “four-year nightmare” of tougher action against China that was carried out by the Trump Administration. Campbell also has ties to another, similar nonprofit called the U.S.-China Strong Foundation, where he was vice chairman.
The NCUCR claims that its primary purpose is to increase diplomacy between the United States and the Chinese government. It has received millions in funding from various corporations, including Facebook, Disney, CitiGroup, and MasterCard. According to Anders Corr, an intelligence analyst with the Journal of Political Risk, “the National Committee is more that of a business league for U.S. companies in China and PRC companies in the U.S.” He further described it as “a two-way unregistered foreign agent networking venue [rather] than strictly as a U.S. nonprofit organization.”
These revelations mark the latest questionable connections between the Biden Administration and Chinese interests, both in the business world and with regards to the CCP. Biden has long been accused of having ties to China that make him incapable of dealing with the regime fairly, and for potentially allowing China more access to the White House and more avenues to power within the United States. Biden had previously criticized President Donald Trump for allegedly being too harsh in his treatment of China, having imposed various tariffs and sanctions on the regime in an effort to strengthen America’s economic standing in the world.
