Report: John Kerry Holds $1M Stake in Chinese Company Connected to Human Rights Abuses

President Biden’s special climate czar John Kerry has a $1 million stake in a private Chinese equity fund which invested in a tech company blacklisted by the U.S. for human rights abuses and also is connected to a Chinese solar panel company that committed labor abuses of the Uyghurs.

Last year private equity fund, Hillhouse China Value Fund L.P., purchased a 6 percent stake in LONGi Green Energy, making it one of the company’s biggest shareholders. Human rights groups have pointed to LONGi as one of the many Chinese companies that have been accused of abusing the Uyghur population and other ethnic minorities by using forced labor among other human rights violations.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

LONGi has come under fire from human rights groups and U.S. lawmakers for sourcing many of its raw materials from companies suspected of using forced labor in Xinjiang, a region in northwest China where the government has cracked down on the Uyghur population and other ethnic minorities.

Hillhouse is also a major funder of a tech company tied to the Chinese government’s surveillance of the Uyghurs, as first reported by the Washington Free Beacon last week. News of that investment led Republican senators to call on Biden to fire Kerry over ethics concerns. Further insight into Hillhouse’s holdings is likely to increase scrutiny of Kerry’s finances and raise questions about whether he is using his role as climate envoy to block regulations on Chinese solar panel imports. While Kerry has acknowledged that many solar panels are produced with forced labor in Xinjiang, he has also indicated resistance to additional financial restrictions or penalties on these goods.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) told the Free Beacon that Kerry’s investments are in conflict with his role as climate envoy. Rubio said Kerry has been actively lobbying against his bill that would bar Chinese imports made with slave labor, which passed the Senate with bipartisan support but has stalled in the House.

“John Kerry appears to have profited from a company tied to egregious human rights abuses in Xinjiang. Now it makes sense why he is actively working against my Uyghur Forced Labor Act,” Rubio said. “But this is bigger than Kerry. A climate deal cannot make our nation complicit to the Chinese Communist Party’s slave labor practices.”

According to a financial disclosure report he filed at the beginning of the year Kerry still holds a $1 million stake in Hillhouse through a trust in which his wife is the beneficiary. At the beginning of Biden’s presidency, Kerry reportedly sold off much of his energy-related holdings.

John Kerry’s devious and miscreant activities have been exposed in the news for years however, they have been coated by Democrat whitewash impervious to consequences. If you have not noticed, the Biden Administration has become the most dangerous element to the destruction of our nation by what Joe Biden and previously Obama has stated as, “changing America fundamentally” – as for myself, and no doubt over 51% of the nation I did not vote for this; I did not vote for any of the destructive Biden administration activities – America currently is no longer GOVERNMENT by the PEOPLE…we are currently being dragged down the road to a socialist dystopia of PEOPLE by a DESTRUCTIVE GOVERNMENT! It is time for America to protect itself from our own government we have the Declaration of Independence which gives us the right to do so and we have the Second Amendment to enforce that right if needs be – there is no time to wait for the next election because you had better remember how well he thinks the last election, so what makes you think any future election will be any different?

We should not lower the impact of our message with a watered down version of the original. A NASCAR announcer changed the message. I suspect that she is a democrat. As the original phrase was F**k Joe Biden!!!

Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness are God given. Documents written by the founders were just a certification for Americans to live by.

Kerry is a DemocRAT, Biden is a DemocRAT……DemocRATs ARE NOT held to the same standards as Republicans or Independents or even those non-classified!
So the answer is NO, Kerry will not be held accountable!

There is a simple reason the Democrats in Congress and the Biden/Harris administration are all of questionable to determined sewer rat character…….the Dems pool of people they have to choose from are all sewer rat creatures! Sadly, they get progressively worse as time goes on!
One of the funniest examples I have seen of Dems “eating their own” was the article stating that Jill Biden wants to use the 25th amendment to get rid of comrade Kamala! The only one I expected that might be used on is Jill’s husband! 😄

Kerry has been a POS since Vietnam along with Hanoi Jane, both of which should be prosecuted for their actions.

John Kerry a.k.a. Lurch, is a pathetic cretin. He is currently serving as the first United States special presidential envoy for the climate. You talk about STEALING money from the American taxpayers. This is a PERFECT EXAMPLE. A phony position with no real accountability tied to it. This clown can do absolutely NOTHING and stills sucks in a six-figure paycheck.

The Biden Administration is the most corrupt administration in the country’s history.

Why should they penalize Swift Boat Kerry, who ran a secret mission for “President” Nixon six weeks BEFORE he was inaugurated? Doesn’t the Meth-Head still own ChiCom stock as well?

There are no words to express the depth of Kerry’s arrogance and ineptitude.
