On Monday’s 'Hannity' 'Clinton Cash' author and Breitbart editor-at-large Peter Schweizer discussed his new book, Secret Empires: How the American Political Class Hides Corruption and Enriches Family and Friends which accuses Joe Biden's son Hunter of $1.5 billion in dirty dealing with China, and details the case of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao:
SCHWEIZER: Basically, what happens is in 2013, Joe Biden, flies to China to talk to them about very sensitive issues, the South China Sea, talking about trade issues, economic issues. Hunter Biden, his son, is with him on Air Force Two. Okay, that’s fine. That’s great. Here’s the problem, ten days after they come back, after Joe Biden takes a pretty soft position towards the Chinese, Hunter Biden inks a — what becomes $1.5 billion deal.
Schweizer discusses McConnell on Tuesday's edition of 'Fox & Friends':
SCHWEIZER: In the case of Mitch McConnell, Elaine Chao his wife her family is in the shipping business. If you look and dissect the shipping business they are completely dependent on the good graces of the Chinese government. In this case, Elaine Chao’s father gave a gift of 5 to $25 million dollars to Mitch McConnell, so they are direct beneficiaries.
What people don’t realize is where the money came from? It came from the Chinese government. Specifically, the China State Shipbuilding Corporation, business partner with the Chaos, is the largest military contractor in China...
One of the things I argue in the book, if you look at Mitch McConnell’s record in the Senate he has become increasingly soft on China as it relates to military issues or trade issues. He is probably going to say ‘No, that is not true, it is not connected,’ but the pattern is overwhelming. It is about follow the money. Where we always end up when we look at corruption in politics, follow the money.
