Congress Requests Investigation on Biden Appointee With Ties to CCP

Numerous Republican congressional members are urging FBI Director Christopher Wray to probe CEO of East West Bank Dominic Ng after it was revealed that the bank was a front for Chinese intelligence. Biden appointed Ng to a one-year position where he would serve as a representative on the Business Advisory Council of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC). The congressional letter to the FBI regarding Ng read, “We request the FBI investigate and provide a report to Congress on the extent of Mr. Ng’s knowledge of sensitive information, as well as any potential violations of The Espionage Act.”

From Daily Caller:

Ng served as “executive director” at the China Overseas Exchange Association (COEA) between 2013 and 2017, before beginning a five-year position with the same title at the related China Overseas Friendship Association (COFA) in 2019, where Ng apparently remains a member, according to a DCNF translation of archived membership records.

Both COEA and COFA, which merged in 2019, have been identified as front groups for the United Front Work Department (UFWD), a CCP agency overseeing both influence and intelligence operations, according to multiple reports from the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission (USCC).
