Breaking: David Chipman has done work with the Chinese Communist Party
In yet ANOTHER conflict of interest he failed to disclose, Biden’s nominee to run the ATF has assisted CCP state media. From Fox News:
President Biden's nominee to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) failed to disclose to the Senate a media appearance on Chinese state TV, which may have been used as propaganda by the communist state to cover up a mass stabbing of children.
Biden's ATF nominee David Chipman appeared on a Chinese state-run media network, China Global Television Network (CGTN), previously known as CCTN, in December 2012 to discuss the government's response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, one of the deadliest shootings in U.S. history that killed 28 people and injured two.
CGTN, which reaches 30 million households within the U.S., "is an arm of China’s propaganda machine. It is controlled by the Communist Party and serves as part of what Mr. Xi has called Beijing’s ‘publicity front.’" as described by the New York Times. In 2019, the Department of Justice (DOJ) required CGTN to register as a foreign agent under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, or FARA.
According to DOJ, in order to project the U.S. from covert foreign influence, FARA "requires certain agents of foreign principals who are engaged in political activities or other activities specified under the statute" to disclose periodic updates to the department.
Previously we highlighted via our exclusive investigations (here and here) regarding David Chipman’s wife (who was brass at the ATF until recently, possibly “recently” due to our revelations, as well as being in the inner circle regarding the Fast & Furious gunrunning coverup. Guns & Gadgets covered most of our work, which led to Chipman’s ATF wife locking down her Twitter account for a brief period), and now this. More and more keeps surfacing on this guy regarding what he isn’t disclosing. Oh, and don’t forget he is against free speech, much like the chi-com.
Let’s not forget to that Chipman was a former lobbyist for Mayors Against Illegal Guns (now Everytown For Gun Safety) at the time he worked with the CCP media, which brings us to one of the guy’s who helped form MAIG, who happens to also be friendly with the Chinese Communists.
