(ReliableNews.org) – On March 8, Breitbart dropped a bombshell report about Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (D-TX). The lawmaker reportedly had holdings of more than $100,000 in the Bank of China, making thousands in interest. The report apparently prompted the congressman to make some financial moves.
The day after the report, a San Antonio news station picked it up and reached out to Gonzalez. The congressman refused an interview, but Jason Johnson, his press secretary, defended his bank account saying the Chinese Communist Party-owned bank was operating under US law. Nonetheless, he said the lawmaker closed the account.

Monica De La Cruz-Hernandez, the Republican who ran against Gonzalez in 2020, said the news that he had a Chinese bank account was “shocking and disturbing.” China is the US’ biggest adversary and one of the people who is supposed to protect our country from them, was in bed with the Communist Party. Disturbing, indeed.
