China, Joe Biden, Senator Dianne Feinstein discussed on Ben Shapiro

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Welcome back is the bench. Piero shows Eric Swallow is merely the latest and not the greatest Democrats have been caught up in a Chinese influence scam. For example, there was all sorts of talk about how the Chinese were essentially Planting moles in various Areas of the California government, including with Senator Dianne Feinstein and Marty said, writing back in August of 2018 for the Washington Post. Imagine if it emerged that the Republican chairman of the House or Senate Intelligence Committee had a Russian spy working on their staff. You think it would cause a political firestorm this month, we learn that Senator Dianne Feinstein had a Chinese spy on her staff who worked for her for about 20 years, was listed as an office director on payroll records served as her driver when she was in San Francisco. Well reported to China's Ministry of State security through China's San Francisco consulate. The reaction of the mainstream media at the time was it barely a peep. Feinstein acknowledged the infiltration, she said, five years ago, the FBI and for me it had concerns and administrative member of my California staff was potentially being sought out by the Chinese government to provide information. But she said he never had access to classified or sensitive information or legislative matters and was immediately fired again. That is just the latest in the that is just the 2018 version. Now we have versions that were coming out same period in which apparently Chinese spies were sleeping with American politicians. In order to gain access to intelligence. Senior U. S. Intelligence officials provided multiple defensive briefings around 2015 to warn targeted local and national politicians about fangs, connections to Chinese intelligence and potential Chinese assets in their offices. And again U. S. Intelligence officials provided multiple briefings to White House officials and members of Congress on the case. And then Fang immediately left the U. S. When this became public should plan to travel to Washington, D C to attend a June 2015 events shortly beforehand. She said she couldn't attend because she needed to go back to China went back to China, and she just stayed in China at the time. Now the reason that they've been going to the Bay area the Chinese is because this is number one, a place for people to hide. There's a heavy Chinese population in the Bay Area. And of course, the Bay Area has a heavy Chinese population. So it wouldn't be too hard to plant a mole in that population. And then you know, create a life for that person. That, of course, is no indictment of the Extraordinary Chinese American population in the Bay Area. It is just a recognition that if you're going to hide a spy in the population, you need people who seem to be members of that population. Obviously, so this is where things stand. Apparently in 2011, she enrolled as a student at CSU East Bay, She served as president of the school's Chinese Student Association and president of the campus chapter of Asian Pacific Islander American Public Affairs. It is a national organization, encouraging Asian Americans to get involved in civic affairs. And then she used that as a lever in order to get into politics, and she had an uncommonly close relationship. With the Chinese Embassy, and she used these Bay area campus organizations as as sort of calling card to allow her to gain access to power. Several acquaintances in political circles told Axios Fan was charismatic and well liked. Others described her behavior as secretive and even suspicious because she was as it turns out a spy. According to Axios, thanks ties to Swalwell, which began when he was a council member for Dublin City, California Demonstrate China's long game swallow rose to prominence rapidly in late 2012 became one of the youngest members of the U. S House in January. 2015 Swallow was assigned to sit on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence serving his lead Democrat on the subcommittee on CIA oversight. Apparently things earliest known engagement with swallow occurred through that Chinese student association and she developed close ties to swell walls office at that time. And for her tardiness, well, well. It made sense because his 2012 campaign relied heavily on Asian American support, which made his ties to the Chinese community, particularly important. So the bottom line is that the Chinese believe that they have a way into American politics, and they're not wrong. It also happens to be the case that the intelligence community announced halfway through this year that they were targeting the Biden campaign. Victory. They wanted the Biden campaign to win. They were very adverse and and angry at the Trump Administration for the anti China position, and they were hopeful that Joe Biden would be a solid replacement. So look for this sort of activity to pick up. Coming up, Joe Biden says he's here to bring everybody together. So why exactly is he just making Cabinet picks based on race at this point.

Coming up next
