Elder Patriot | Donald Trump promised to drain the swamp and now that the Mueller investigation is over, and the handcuffs are off, he’s doing exactly that.
Trump is intent on ending a system that has been rigged, at least in part, by Chinese money.
In his 2018 book, “Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends,” author Peter Schweizer took a deep dive into U.S. politicians unseemly financial ties to the Communist Chinese government.
Prominent U.S. politicians Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as well as then Vice President Joe Biden and former presidential candidate and Secretary of State John Kerry were among high-profile U.S. leadership benefiting financially from their dealings with the Communist regime.
Now President Trump, whose personal financial interests became the target for Democrats charging the president with some violation or other of the constitution’s emoluments clause, is calling for an investigation into Biden’s financial associations with China.
In his 2018 book, Schweizer wrote:
“The vice president is negotiating a bunch of very sensitive issues with the Chinese, including the South China Sea, trade, tech transfer, etc. Shortly after they return to the US, Hunter Biden’s firm receives a $1 billion private equity deal from the Chinese government We have no way of knowing how much Rosemont made on the deal because there are no disclosure requirements.”
Biden’s soft stance on China’s aggression in the South China Sea certainly leaves room to question how his son’s financial arrangement tempers his views of the communist regime:
President Trump told Fox News’ Steve Hilton:
“One-hundred percent. It’s a disgrace. And then he says China’s not a competitor of ours. China is a massive competitor of ours. They want to take over the world.”
Schweizer’s book debuted more than 14 months ago. During that time the mainstream media ignored Schweizer’s straightforward presentation of the facts. The media was too busy propping up a collusion story that had been debunked months before the book was released..
“My frustration is not that the solid reporting on Trump has been too tough, but that the reporting on the Obama administration has been way too soft or in some cases nonexistent.” – Peter Schweizer
