According to Fox News:
A newly announced senior adviser to President Biden referred to a top Chinese Communist Party (CCP) official as his “friend” and took several phone calls from him between 2015 and 2016 while serving as the chairman for Hillary Clinton’s failed campaign, according to emails reviewed by Fox News Digital.
Biden announced earlier this month that he was appointing John Podesta to serve as his senior adviser to the president for clean energy innovation and implementation, saying his “deep roots in climate and clean energy policy” will help the administration “hit the ground running” on pushing forward these policies. In this new role, Podesta will oversee approximately $370 billion in climate spending.
Four days after Podesta left the White House as a counselor to President Obama in February 2015, his assistant, Eryn Sepp, informed him that he would be receiving a call on his “house line” from Tung Chee-hwa, who has been serving as a vice chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) since the early 2000s. The CPPCC is the “key mechanism for multi-party cooperation and political consultation” under the leadership of the CCP, according to the CPPCC website.
