The Chinese Communist Party controls 600 American think tanks, businesses, activist groups, and politicians to control American government, Newsweek reports. Newsweek also notes that Intelligence Community Officials assessed that China ramped up attacks on President Trump through its propaganda network to sway the 2020 election for Joe Biden.
Additionally, Newsweek reports that China prefers Democrats over Republicans because they made the “greatest strides” in American affairs during the Obama Administration. Most of Biden’s current White House officials worked for President Obama.
During Trump’s Presidency, Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned that China likely compromised at least 23 U.S. governors and continued working to compromise more local politicians. In fact, just before Biden took office, the State Department shut down a Chinese Consulate in Texas over election interference. John C. Demers, then an assistant attorney general in the Department of Justice, told reporters “Houston was not chosen at random out of the consulates out there,” but rather because of election influence operations that spanned the multiple southern states.
The Chinese Communist Party also controls American Politics through the United Front, a Chinese Military campaign which Xi Jinping calls the “magic weapon” of Chinese influence in the U.S. The United Front worked with multiple state officials during the 2020 election to shut down election fraud audits following unprecedented reports of voter fraud across the country. Officials found on China’s payroll included Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, and former Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes. Three officials in states where election counting experienced heavy anomalies.link
