A fugitive informant who claimed to have provided the FBI with crucial information on the business dealings of the Biden family in China is now at the center of a legal storm. Gal Luft, a dual U.S.-Israeli citizen, is facing charges related to arms trafficking and violations of sanctions involving Iran, rather than being heralded as a whistleblower. The unfolding events cast a shadow of doubt on the Biden family’s connections and raise important questions about potential corruption.
Federal prosecutors in Manhattan have accused Luft of acting as an unregistered agent of China and attempting to facilitate the sale of Iranian oil in violation of sanctions. They also claim that Luft recruited and paid a former high-ranking U.S. government official on behalf of Chinese interests, without complying with the necessary requirements for foreign agent registration.
While the identity of the former official remains undisclosed in the indictment, it is mentioned that the official was an advisor to then president-elect Donald Trump. Luft allegedly influenced the advisor to support policies favorable to China, even drafting comments in the advisor’s name published in a Chinese newspaper.
Earlier this year, Luft was arrested in Cyprus on U.S. charges but managed to escape custody after being released on bail while awaiting extradition. He is currently not in U.S. custody.
Adding to the intrigue, The New York Post recently released a 14-minute video featuring Luft, in which he claimed that his arrest in Cyprus was a deliberate move to prevent him from testifying before the House Oversight Committee. In his planned testimony, he intended to expose alleged bribery involving the Biden family and a source connected to the Chinese military. Luft claims to have provided this information to FBI and Department of Justice officials during a meeting in Brussels in March 2019, but alleges that it was subsequently covered up.
Luft, who is the co-director of the Institute for the Analysis of Global Security, a prominent think tank based in Washington, D.C., has not yet responded to the charges brought against him.
Prosecutors contend that Luft brokered deals for Chinese companies to sell weapons to countries such as Libya, the United Arab Emirates, and Kenya, without the necessary licenses required by U.S. law. Additionally, he is accused of arranging meetings between Iranian officials and a Chinese energy company to discuss oil deals, all while circumventing U.S. sanctions.
These allegations and developments raise significant concerns about potential corruption and illicit activities involving the Biden family’s ties to China. As concerned citizens, it is essential that we closely monitor this case and demand accountability.
