(PresidentialInsider.com)- A new report just revealed how Democrat member of Congress Josh Gottheimer, who is a longtime ally and friend of the Clinton family – was an investor in a number of companies heavily connected to the Chinese Communist Party. The shocking revelation casts doubt on Gottheimer’s ability to act in the interests of the United States on the House Homeland Security Committee.
The National Pulse revealed how Gottheimer’s links to the Communist Party of China overlap with his time as the Representative for New Jersey’s 5th Congressional district. Financial disclosure forms filed by the Congressman include a 60-page list of investments, with six entries referring to companies that are connected to the Chinese government.
This is important not just because Gottheimer is a member of Congress and sits on the House Financial Services Committee, as well as the National Security, International Development, and Monetary Policy Subcommittee, but also because he was once described as a “protégé” of the Clinton family by The New York Times.
He worked as the speechwriter for failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in her 2008 campaign and even worked for the Bill Clinton administration. The Times described him as something like a “family member” in a 2015 report.
One example of a CCP-linked investment includes his stock worth between $1,001 and $15,000 in China Mobile, which he sold in December 2019. Furthermore, Gottheimer invested in three technology companies in China that have already been flagged by the United States Department of State as “tools of Communist Party influence and control.” The tech firms in question are Baidu, Tencent, and Alibaba.
What is a U.S. member of Congress doing investing in foreign companies controlled by communists and actively working against the interests of the United States? It means when China wins and America loses…Gottheimer is also winning.
Gottheimer even reportedly purchased Alibaba stock worth as much as $15,000 in November 2019, and up to $15,000 in Tencent stock in January that same year.
