The Daily Caller has new details on the sweet deal inked between the Chinese Communist Party-linked Gotion Industries and Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker to place a large battery manufacturing plant in Illinois.
For those who missed the original story, Joe Biden and JB Pritzker are giving away $8B (EIGHT BILLION DOLLARS) to Gotion Industries to build a $2B plant in Illinois. That works out to $3M in taxpayer subsidies PER WORKER! We all knew that Joe Biden was a fully-owned subsidiary of China but we didn’t know that the other JB was beholden to the Red Chinese.
It seems that Gotion is not only connected to the Chinese military, but placement of its plants in both Illinois and Michigan are disturbingly close to military facilities the Reds might want to monitor. From the Daily Caller:
Two former U.S. ambassadors called on the Treasury Department Friday to “review” a Chinese Communist Party (CCP)-linked battery company with operations in the U.S. following detailed Daily Caller News Foundation investigations.
Through the Michigan-China Economic and Security Review Group (MCESRG), former U.S. Ambassadors Peter Hoekstra and Joseph Cella called on the Treasury Department’s Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) to compel Gotion, Inc., a subsidiary of China-based Gotion High-Tech, to file disclosure paperwork and submit to a full CFIUS review. Their request follows a Friday DCNF report which found that Gotion High-Tech established a joint venture company with a State Department-identified “Communist Chinese Military Company Subsidiary” in 2016, as well as several other DCNF investigations detailing Gotion, Inc.’s connections to the CCP via its parent company.
Gotion, Inc.’s previously-filed paperwork “provides narrow, de minimis, vague and incomplete information, and lacks the strict scrutiny and due diligence necessary for this massive and complex transaction that is shrouded by binding and punitive 5-year non-disclosure agreements,” Cella told the DCNF of Gotion, Inc.’s plan to build a facility in Michigan. “Many reasonably-thinking people consider Gotion to be evading CFIUS.”
The company is poised to build a factory near Big Rapids, Michigan, within about 100 miles of a military installation that has hosted Taiwanese soldiers receiving training from members of the National Guard. Another Gotion, Inc. plant planned for Manteno, Illinois, is within about 30 miles of two other U.S. military installations, the DCNF reported.
