What is it with the Democrats’ love for America’s number one world threat, the Chinese Communist Party?
At one point they at least tried to hide it.
Chris Coons, the Democrat senator that took the place of Joe Biden and is expected to hold a very high level position in a potential Biden administration sure does hang around with some questionable folks.
His recent Chief of Staff, Adam Bramwell, just registered as a lobbyist for Alibaba, a company founded by a member of the Chinese Communist Party.
In 2015 Forbes reported the “Chinese Government Has A Huge “Stake” In Alibaba” and The New York Times unearthed the company’s “deep political connections of the investment firms, Boyu Capital, Citic Capital Holdings and CDB Capital, the China Development Bank’s private investment arm” in 2014.
The Times also noted Alibaba’s “senior executive ranks included sons or grandsons of the most powerful members of the ruling Communist Party.”
Politico has dubbed Chris Coons as "the Biden Whisperer" and says he is expected to be a 'power player' in the Biden administration.
But how could we willingly have a man with such support for the Chinese Communist Party in a presidential administration for the United States?
The CCP is known for the world's worst record of human rights abuses and crimes - and it's going on as we speak. This isn't about the past. This is the present.
It also casts Bramwell’s dealings with China while in Congress in an interesting light; why would the Chinese Communist Party knowingly hire a lobbyist they felt had attempted to thwart the regime’s attempts to overtake the U.S. to assist in the areas of “technology policy issues,” “access to US capital markets,” and “issues related to e-commerce”?
Perhaps Bramwell’s extensive ties to Coons – dubbed by Politico as “The Biden whisperer” – are the reason why.
Natalie Winters has an excellent piece on this unbelievable issue. She notes a speech that Bramwell gave at an 'off-the-record' event regarding U.S. - China relations.
He appeared to continue beefing up his involvement with pro-China lobby groups, becoming a member of the US-Asia Institute (USAI) Congressional Circle which boasts lobbyists for Chinese Communist Party linked companies such as Huawei, banned by the Trump administration for providing the Chinese government backdoor access to its devices and identified by the U.S. Department of Defense as a Chinese military proxy.

Also, remember Diane Feinstein's personal assistant of 20 years ended up being a Chinese spy. But shhhhhh.....
