This happened under Obama.
They were yelling about Vladimir Putin, in fact, they were doing precisely what they claim to do to crime. They were working on behalf of a foreign power. Our chief global arrival, the government of China. The Russia hoax effectively was a diversion, hit something that’s not a hoax at all but is real and threatening to all of us. We will spend the foreseeable future reporting on the relationship between America’s political-financial elites and the communist government of China that made many of them very rich. We want to start tonight with the evidence, the remarkable video. This video recorded over a week ago on November 28th. The man you’re about to see speak as a professor from Beijing. The video comes from an appearance he made on a Chinese television show about Wall Street in international trade. He works at a university in Beijing. He’s like so many in academia and a servant of his country’s government. This video was deleted from Chinese social media soon after being uploaded. There’s a reason for that as you will see.
>> [Speaking in a foreign language] [Laughter]
>> Tucker: There’s a lot of garbage floating around, and a lot of fake things. That video is real and those subtitles are accurate. Checks in with two different Chinese speakers and they confirmed it. But he just said, when you read on the screen tells the story. This is close to a smoking gun as we’ve ever seen. “We have people at the top of America’s core inner circle of power and influence. According to the man you just saw, that’s been true for decades. How many people work in media and government? He didn’t say precisely. At one point of the video he described a Chinese agent working as a top Wall Street financial institute. I can’t say more without making political trouble. He did tell his audience that one agent in particular was especially useful. He goes on at some length about her. He describes her as an American who’s worked abroad for many years, who is now a Chinese citizen. This seems to baffle him a little bit. At the Chinese government doesn’t allow dual citizenship, what would they? Why would anyone? He seems pleased that the U.S. Government is foolish enough to allow it. He explains that this American agent who at lives part of the year in Beijing helps with the propaganda operation in the city of Washington in 2015. He goes on to describe in some detail. The Obama Administration was easy to manipulate, he suggests, they helped. The Chinese had many friends among the Obama people. The problem came when Donald Trump was elected after that he says, everything changed.

>> Tucker: Since the 1970s, he said, he is in the in economics professor, Wall Street has had an enormous over the way the United States operates over American policy. The Chinese government he says has enormous influence on Wall Street. And the arrangement works very well for a long time. Then Donald Trump unexpectedly was elected in 2016. Wall Street was infuriated. Wall Street can’t fix Trump, he said, but they tried. This solves the mystery. If you’re wondering why the political class has stood by and allowed the Chinese government to degrade this country and our way of life, why they stood by as a Chinese government flooded the United States with deadly opioids that killed hundreds of thousands of people, or stood by as the Chinese government ripped off billions of intellectual property from the companies. There’s your answer. This year, the chairman of Harvard’s chemistry department was arrested for taking $50,000 a month from the Chinese communist party intern for sending secrets and referring top scientists to Beijing. It barely rated as a scandal. You might not be aware it happened. Why? Because so many are on the take. Donald Trump was an impediment to the very lucrative arrangement. For that reason, he explains in the video, America’s most powerful elites, he calls them gnats, got to work on electing a new president. Again, read the words at the bottom of your screen as he speaks.
>> [Speaking in a foreign language] [Laughter] [Applause]
>> Tucker: Ohl, Donald Trump you know it’s because the Chinese do pay close attention, Donald Trump has complained about Hunter Biden. His ties to the Chinese government. Those are real, he just confirmed. So, now you know why you weren’t allowed to talk about Hunter Biden’s laptop. Why big business aligned as one, the tech companies and the rest, to suppress that story. Because they were implicated in it. Back in October we interviewed a man called Tony Bob Linsky, interviewed him because nobody else would. 20 Paul Belinsky was a business partner of the Bidens. If he was when he told us about China.
>> In the document you guys had and I think has been provided the world, the Chinese reference that because of their trust in the Biden family, the chairman and director were excited about moving forward in this. In the documents, they reference loaning $5 million to the family. The bd family is the Biden family.
>> What are the implications of this going forward if Joe Biden is elected president which could very well happen.
>> Tucker: How does this constrain his abilities to work with China?
>> I think they’re compromised.
>> Tucker: I think Joe Biden and the Biden family are compromised, with China. I think he’s right about that and the Bidens are far from the only ones being compromised.
- A suspected Chinese intelligence operative named Christine Fang developed extensive ties with local and national politicians, including a U.S. congressman, in what U.S. officials believe was a political intelligence operation run by China’s main civilian spy agency between 2011 and 2015.
- The alleged operation offers a rare window into how Beijing has tried to gain access to and influence U.S. political circles.
- How it worked: Through campaign fundraising, extensive networking, personal charisma, and romantic or sexual relationships with at least two Midwestern mayors, Fang was able to gain proximity to political power, according to current and former U.S. intelligence officials and one former elected official.
Chinese authorities have detained Haze Fan, a Chinese national and Bloomberg News staff member working for their Beijing bureau, on suspicion of national security endangerment, Bloomberg reported on Friday.
The big picture: Chinese citizens working for Western media companies have been warned by officials to “watch their step,” according to the Washington Post. Western media companies are facing worsening conditions in China, and many American journalists have been expelled from the country.
