The ties between the Biden administration, his family, and the Chinese have just gotten a little deeper.
This week, Joe Biden announced that John Podesta would join his administration as a senior climate adviser.
Podesta is a former Obama and Clinton (both Hillary and Bill) staffer with some questionable and deep ties to communist China.
Podesta is not exactly a household name unless you are a political junkie.
He did appear on the radar for a hot minute during the Hillary scandals, but this man is a big-time player for the Democrat Party… and the Chinese.
With Biden’s top climate adviser Gina McCarthy resigning her post, Biden decided to bring in Podesta.
This move has outraged conservatives and Republicans due to Podesta’s open ties to Communist China.
For instance, Podesta is currently on the China-United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF) steering committee.
He has even posted multiple articles on the organization’s website over the last decade.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has called CUSEF a “pseudo-philanthropic foundation” in the past.
Podesta’s relationship with Tung Chee-hwa is of particular concern to conservatives.
Tung is entrenched in CUSEF and the vice chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference.
John Podesta is also tied to the Podesta Group through his brother Tony Podesta.
John claims he broke away from the group decades ago after entering the political arena, but his brother was active in the group until it was dissolved in 2017.
CUSEF funneled $890,000 to the Podesta Group between 2015 and 2017.
Podesta is now in charge of $370 billion in climate funding that Biden recently secured via his Inflation Reduction Act, yet he has seemingly minimal background on this front.
You better believe the Republicans will be watching every penny he spends.
