Inquiry Highlights Terry McAuliffe’s Ties to Chinese Company

Four years ago, one of China’s largest agricultural importers sent representatives to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., hoping that meetings with elite party officials might yield business opportunities. The company, the Dandong Port Group, was particularly focused on the governors in attendance, according to an interview with Dandong’s general counsel broadcast by Chinese state television.

But now, the company’s widening influence is coming under scrutiny by federal prosecutors, who are examining the relationship between Dandong’s wealthy and connected chairman, Wang Wenliang, and Gov. Terry McAuliffe of Virginia, a Democrat who was elected in 2013.

McAuliffe is a close associate of the Clintons". I forgot exactly what position he held in the Clinton administration.

Hillary should be worried by now.

McAwful collected bags of cash from Chinese donors for Clinton back in the ‘90’s for which Clinton gave approval for export of technology that helped the Chinese launch sattelites and missiles.

Only that it’s coming to light now.

Maybe Sanders has friends in high places too.

In my opinion BOTH PARTIES, are completely sold out to China.

This is barely a HINT at what is happening.

Everyone is sold out. Everyone.

Surprised to see it in the NY Times, but that's about all. She and BJ Billy sold quite a bit of technology to the Chinese, as I recall. Foundation of their fortune, so to speak.

I continue to believe that Obama is slowly destroying Hillary’s chances to get the nomination so he can slip Biden in just in time for the convention.

How did this get by the Obama DOJ? What the heck did McAuliffe do to get thrown under the bus? Was there talk of him becoming Hillary’s VP?

I smell a plot to attack and overturn Citizens United ruling.
IE: a legal resident has ‘free speech’.
Clever...
