In a recent interview with Fox News’ “Watters’ World,” Schweizer, who is a Breitbart News senior contributor and president of the Government Accountability Institute, discussed “Riding the Dragon: The Bidens’ Chinese Secrets” (see entire video posted below).
In the documentary, Schweizer provides all the details regarding the Bidens’ financial dealings and ties to a country that has emerged as the greatest threat to U.S. national security since the Soviet Union.
“What are the main headlines from your research that you can see in this documentary?” Fox News host Jesse Watters asked in kicking off the segment.
“Well, the main headlines, Jesse are these: that the Bidens made a lot of money, courtesy of the Chinese government. We’re not talking about Chinese businesses — the Chinese government. This happened while Joe Biden was the point person on Obama administration policy towards China,” Schweizer said.
“But this is not just rank and file corruption that we’ve gotten used to. This is not the Chinese takeout version of typical corruption because, in addition to the Biden’s making money, Jesse, what happened is, Hunter Biden entered into a business partnership,” he continued.
“He was on the Board of Directors of a Chinese investment firm called BHR that was funded by the Chinese government, and what did they do? They started acquiring companies that were beneficial to the Chinese military,” the documentarian added.
“They were an anchor investor in something called China General Nuclear, which ended up being charged by our FBI for stealing nuclear secrets in the United States. They ended up buying part of an American dual-use technology company, meaning it produces technology that has civilian and military application. They ended up buying that for the benefit of the Chinese military,” he noted further.
Because why bother to hack and steal military technology when you can just purchase it — legally?
Schweizer said what’s at stake is much more than just another American political leader’s “kid getting rich.” Rather, he added that there are genuine “national security implications” at stake if Joe Biden and running mate Kamala Harris manage somehow to skate into the White House next January.
According to Law Enforcement Today, the firm BHR manages around $2.1 billion in assets. It is funded and mostly controlled by the ChiCom government, The Wall Street Journal added in October 2019 as the Democratic presidential nomination still remained in doubt.
In 2013, Hunter Biden joined his then-vice president father aboard Air Force Two on a flight to China, where he would go on to secure a 10-percent share in the private equity firm. (Related: Chinese company that Hunter Biden invested in may have profited from a brutal, deadly crackdown at an African mine.)
“Over the past roughly six years, it has channeled $2.5 billion or more on behalf of its financial backers into automotive, energy, mining and technology deals, according to interviews with people familiar with the private-equity firm and a review by The Wall Street Journal of financial filings and other official business records,” the paper reported.
Hunter Biden, WSJ added, is one of nine of the firm’s directors, all of whom are known as BHR Partners, “which is controlled and funded primarily by large Chinese government-owned shareholders.”
And don’t think that President Trump hasn’t made note of this. He alleged last year that Hunter Biden “walked out of China with $1.5 billion in a fund,” and while it wasn’t clear at the time where the president came up with that figure, what is known is that Trump the businessman understands that industry well.
Our intelligence services and Department of Defense have been saying for years that China, not Russia, is our biggest threat. If Biden somehow gets elected, the ChiComs will have at least four years to exploit their strengths and our weaknesses as a guest of the ‘new president.’
