Biden’s son has been accused of corruption and espionage

A federal prosecutor in New York announced Monday that he has charged an Israeli-American man with spying for China, which has accused the Democratic president’s son of corruption, Hunter Biden.

Gale Luft, 57, director of the energy think tank, was charged with “conspiring with others to promote China’s interests as an agent” for Beijing without registering as a foreign agent under U.S. law, said Damian Williams, federal attorney for the Southern District of New York.

Mr. Luft was sued.

Arrested in Cyprus in February 2023, he is now on the run after being released on bail pending extradition, according to the Ministry of Justice.

He faces up to 20 years in prison on the most serious charges.

For years, Joe Biden’s younger brother, Hunter, accused Gal Luft, who served as a consultant to Chinese state-controlled energy company CEFC, of ​​secretly accepting millions of dollars from the company.

In a video published by the New York Post on July 5, he says he shared this information with two US federal prosecutors and four FBI agents in Brussels in March 2019.

Many elected conservatives Mr. Luft is being subpoenaed to testify before Congress.

“He’s a key witness,” Republican Senator Ron Johnson told Fox News on Sunday. “We should grant him immunity so he can testify and tell his story.”

“Kal Luft is the most credible witness of the Biden family’s corruption,” Republican elected official James Comer tweeted Friday.

In May, Republicans selected from a congressional committee that oversees the administration released a report alleging that Joe Biden’s family members and their associates received nearly $10 million from foreign companies, including Chinese and Romanian.

The allegations are part of a long-running campaign targeting the controversial affairs of Hunter Biden, the son of the embattled Democratic president.

Republicans allege that she used her name and her father’s address book to engage in dubious deals in several countries during her tenure as Barack Obama’s vice president (2009-2017).
