Top Biden Aide Founded Group 'Heavily Influenced' by Chinese Communist Party
Asia policy chief Kurt Campbell helped found U.S.-China Strong Foundation
Joe Biden's chief coordinator on Asia policy founded a group that is "heavily influenced" by the Chinese Communist Party, a bombshell new report has revealed.
Kurt Campbell, Biden’s choice to serve as Asia policy chief on the National Security Council, helped found the Beijing-linked U.S.-China Strong Foundation.
The White House staffer established the think tank which promoted expanding cultural and economic ties between the United States and China's communist regime.
The Washington Free Beacon reported this week that the group appears to have been closed down, however.
Before it was shut down, Campbell’s organization had caught the attention of some observers, according to The Beacon.
The group had been advocating for the U.S. to support China’s communist political and economic programs.
The foundation has promoted the Chinese army and China’s Belt and Road Initiative—deemed a national security threat by U.S. officials, according to Breitbart.
It has also partnered with the Confucius Institute U.S. Center (CIUS).
CIUS is an educational nonprofit organization that the State Department designated as a foreign mission last summer, citing its promotion of Beijing’s propaganda efforts to academics across the world.
“The indicators suggest that the U.S.-China Strong Foundation could be a [Chinese Communist Party] front group, or so heavily influenced by the CCP as to be tantamount to a front group,” said Anders Corr, an intelligence analyst, and publisher of the Journal of Political Risk.
The group also entered into a partnership with the Confucius Institute U.S. Center, an education outfit funded by the Chinese government.
In recent years, the federal government has investigated organizations such as the Confucius Institute for attempting to recruit students to spy on China’s behalf.
The institutes have also more broadly been accused of disseminating Chinese propaganda.
Revelations about Campbell’s work with the U.S.-China Strong Foundation come the same week that it emerged Biden’s youngest son, Hunter Biden, continues to hold a 10 percent stake in an international private equity firm with ties to Beijing.
The Biden family business dealings in China have been at the center of corruption allegations.
The scandal has been notably absent from the establishment media's news cycle in recent weeks, however.
