23 congressional leaders who have lobbied for Chinese military and intelligence companies

A new book reveals 23 former congressional leaders have lobbied for Chinese military or intelligence-linked companies after leaving office.

The new book Red-Handed by Peter Schweizer documents how several lawmakers have used their notoriety to build their fortune by serving Chinese interests.

“Too many former politicians are making bundles of money representing these interests in the corridors of Washington power,” Schweizer said in the book.

Among those cited in the book is former Republican House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH).

“Boehner’s firm has also advised for Chinese government-linked corporations such as ChemChina, China Railway Stock Corporation, Huawei, and Wanhua Chemical Group,” according to Breitbart.

Democrats have also been noted in the book. Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s husband partly owned a Chinese company that sold spyware to the U.S. military.

The concerning connections among nearly two dozen U.S. lawmakers reveal disturbing trends among political leaders that have put the interests of China above those of America.
