  • Saying the potential conflicts of interest were reminiscent of the controversial “Uranium One” transaction, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley announced Thursday he is probing the Obama administration’s 2015 decision to approve the sale of a sensitive U.S. technology company to the Chinese government and an investment firm run by the sons of Joe Biden and John Kerry.
  • In 2015, BHR and the state-owned military contractor Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) jointly purchased Henniges, a U.S.-based automotive company that creates “dual-use” technologies with both military and civilian applications.
  • The CFIUS is an interagency body consisting of, among other agencies, the Energy Department, Defense Department, Treasury Department, and State Department — which John Kerry led from 2013 to 2017.
