A Democrat’s reported memberships are highly concerning.
She may be putting America’s national security at risk.
Documents indicate this top Democrat is connected to organizations with alleged ties to Chinese intel.
California Democrat Rep. Judy Chu denied accusations of being part of several organizations with alleged Chinese Communist Party (CCP) intelligence ties, but the Daily Caller says there are photographs and documents that show otherwise.
“I have been accused of serving as the honorary president of an organization, the All America Chinese Youth Federation, with ties to the Chinese Communist Party,” Chu’s Feb. 14 press release states.
“I am not and have never been a member of this group, and I never gave my permission to be listed as the ‘honorary president’ for it or any other organization like it.”
But the Daily Caller reports there are photographs of Rep. Chu accepting appointments from leaders from both the All America Chinese Youth Federation (AACYF) as well as the Forums for Peaceful Reunification of China.
“However, multiple Chinese-language articles appearing in news outlets such as ChinaNews.com and Sina.com report that Chu accepted a position as AACYF’s “honorary president” during a meeting with the organization’s leaders in Chu’s Los Angeles office on October 9, 2012, according to DCNF translations. These articles appear to be sourced from announcements originating from AACYF,” Daily Caller reported.
AACYF is a subchapter of an organization “directly subordinate” to the United Front Work Department (UFWD) which is a branch of the Communist Chinese government used for both influence and intelligence operations internationally.
AACYF’s website listed Rep. Chu as the organization’s “honorary president” in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022 and 2023, archived records show. The page was deleted when conservative media reported the connection.
Despite the evidence against her, Chu told the Washington Post last Friday: “I have had no contact with this group ever since demanding the retraction, and have never attended an organizational meeting of this group.”
Rep. Lance Gooden, suggested last Friday that Chu should be denied access to sensitive classified materials and investigated for her Chinese connections.
“I question her either loyalty or competence,” Gooden told Fox News on Wednesday. “If she doesn’t realize what’s going on, then she’s totally out of touch with one of her core constituencies.”
Chu issued a statement Thursday calling Gooden’s remarks “racist.”
House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) also blasted Gooden, calling his statement “dangerous, unconscionable and xenophobic.”
“Rather than following facts that indicate the presence of Chinese espionage, Chu and Jeffries are playing the race card in a sick display of disloyalty to our nation,” Gooden said in an email.
