Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtonexaminer.com: “Government calls out China influence groups: Why does Biden hire from their US collaborator?”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The U.S. government has repeatedly called out Chinese influence groups, yet President Joe Biden’s picks for two key posts are both strategic advisers for a pro-China business group that collaborates with those same organizations.

Reta Jo Lewis, Biden’s nominee to run the Export-Import Bank, and Mitch Landrieu, the infrastructure czar , are listed as "strategic advisers" for the U.S. Heartland China Association, which regularly partners with organizations tied to the Chinese Communist Party’s United Front Work Department — China's foreign influence arm described by Xi Jinping as a “magic weapon.”

USHCA, whose CEO is former Democratic Gov. Bob Holden, has repeatedly partnered with the Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries. The State Department said in 2020 that CPAFFC was “tasked with co-opting subnational governments” and “has sought to directly and malignly influence state and local leaders to promote the PRC’s global agenda.” Then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused CPAFFC of being part of the UFWD.

The U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission said in its November report to Congress that “Chinese Communist Party-affiliated organizations with a role in China’s overseas influence activities include” the UFWD and CPAFFC. The Heritage Foundation said in February that CPAFFC was “the public face” of the UFWD.

USHCA has also partnered with the China-U.S. Exchange Foundation and the China Center for International Economic Exchanges, both of which have CCP connections.
