If you thought that the Chinese effort to spy on us and influence our government started under Joe Biden, you would be mistaken. Chinese influence might have gotten more prevalent under Biden, but it’s been going on for years.

We heard all about the fake Russia collusion hoax for years, yet there’s a case now going on that you may not have heard anything about that is a pretty stunning effort by a Chinese-connected Malaysian financier to influence our government and our elections.

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio testified on Monday in Washington, D.C. that the financier, Jho Low, told him that he wanted to donate $30 million to Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign. So, the guy connected to China wanted to funnel money to get Obama elected? Gee, I wonder why the Chinese would want him (and Joe Biden) re-elected? “It was a casual conversation about what party he was in support of,” DiCaprio said, telling jurors that Low said he planned on giving “a significant donation” to the Democratic Party that was “somewhere to the tune of $20-30 million.” DiCaprio knew Low because he had partied with him and he helped finance one of his films.

Low had a ton of money — he’s also accused of having embezzled $4.5 billion from Malaysia’s state investment fund, but he’s reportedly hiding out in China so that Malaysia can’t get him.

Enter Pras Michel of the music group “The Fugees” to allegedly help make those donations to the Obama campaign since it would be illegal for Low to do so.

Prosecutors have accused Michel of receiving $21.6 million in payments from foreign accounts linked to Low which the rapper then paid out to roughly 20 straw donors from June to November 2012. Those 20 or so donors were expected to make contributions to the Obama campaign in their names so the money wouldn’t be traced back to Low, according to court documents.

After DiCaprio testified, more witnesses came forward and testified that they had been approached to make shadow donations to the Obama campaign.

They also alleged Michel and others tried to interfere in the Trump administration’s investigation of Low, but that effort failed.

Does it surprise anyone at all that they wanted to put Obama/Biden back into office? Look at what has happened since, and how much worse things have gotten under Joe Biden, from China’s spying on us to its moves around the world to make moves that are not good for the United States. Why has this not gotten more attention — this was far more “interference” with millions of dollars rather than the alleged interference from random Russian Facebook pages? Why has more not been done, in light of this, to focus more attention on stopping real interference? And what were the donors expecting to get for the money?

Paging GOP prosecutors and members of Congress: This sounds pretty concerning. Who is looking at who knew what when and if this is still going on in some fashion with others?
