(FreedomBeacon.com)- A White House letter signed by President Joe Biden written to the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, revealed the threat the United States faces from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The letter, dated November 8, was published on the White House website.
It states that the People’s Republic of China (PRC) is exploiting the U.S. through its “Military-Civil Fusion” strategy. This fusion enables the country to bolster its military capabilities at the expense of the U.S.’s national security. To increase the “size of the country’s military-industrial complex,” the regime incentivizes and compels “civilian Chinese companies to support its military and intelligence activities.”
Although these companies are civilian and private, the letter states, they allegedly sell securities to U.S. investors on public exchanges both within the country and outside of it to raise capital, effectively lobbying index providers and funds.
The letter also mentions the use of surveillance against its Chinese citizens “to facilitate repression or serious human rights abuse[s],” concluding that the administration will continue the declaration of a national emergency outlined in Executive Order 13959 and expanded in scope by Executive Order 14032.
The admonition comes amid several reports detailing ways the CCP is strategically stealing sensitive U.S. technological information to support its military. In one intelligence report conducted by the software development firm Stride,150 Chinese-born scientists who were allegedly involved in taxpayer-funded research in the U.S. are now working for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) on technologies with military applications, according to the National Pulse.
The Biden administration issued the letter shortly after reports emerged of the White House looking to investigate billionaire and Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
The administration sought to conduct a national security review of Musk over his acquisition of Twitter and Starlink ventures, as well as his connections to foreign backers, according to a report from the conservative magazine American Pigeon. Ahead of the investigation, the administration also expanded the scope of the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), which has the power to reject deals with ties to foreign backers.
