In a recent live video, Zhai Dongsheng, a senior policy advisor to the Chinese Communist Party and professor at Renmin University, exposed the core secrets of the Chinese Communist Party’s infiltration of the United States, and also implicated many “old friends” in the inner circle of the Chinese Communist Party’s power in the United States.

In a live video titled “Will financial liberalization bring in the wolves of Wall Street”, Di Dongsheng first affirmed that the Chinese Communist Party “can’t handle the Trump administration”, and at the same time revealed the secret of the Chinese Communist Party’s ability to handle the U.S. government, which is that it has “old friends” and “people at the top” in the U.S. power core.
In the video, Zhai Dongsheng said that the Chinese Communist Party was able to handle the U.S. because it had old friends in the U.S. power inner circle. (Screenshot of Zhai Dongsheng’s video)
Who is the old lady who gave Xi Jinping a hand?
As an example, Zhai cited “an old Jewish woman” who helped Xi Jinping arrange a venue for a book sale. (Screenshot from Zhai Dongsheng’s video)
In the video, Zhai cites an example of an old friend of the Communist Party of China, saying that when Xi Jinping visited the United States in 2015, his staff was responsible for public opinion and planned to hold a book launch for Xi’s book in an influential American bookstore. Zhai Dongsheng said he was unable to negotiate a venue, and then the Communist Party brought in “an old Jewish woman” to quickly fix the bookstore.
Writer Zeng Zheng investigated and verified that the People’s University website’s page about Zhai Dongsheng shows that when Xi Jinping visited the United States in 2015, the CCP’s Foreign Ministry assigned Zhai Dongsheng and the State Council Information Office to arrange the launch of Xi’s book.
The website of Renmin University has now removed the reference to Zhai Dongsheng as the person responsible for arranging Xi’s book launch in 2015, but the content remains on Chinese search sites such as Baidu, the Epoch Times found.
In other words, Zhai Dongsheng’s statement in the video that an old woman helped Xi Jinping with the book sale should be true.
The page on Renmin University’s website featuring Zhai Dongsheng shows that Zhai and the State Council Information Office were indeed responsible for arranging Xi’s book sale when he visited the United States in 2015. (Screenshot from the website of Renmin University)
After investigating, Zeng Zheng found that the elderly woman mentioned by Zhai Dongsheng, presumably named Liliane Willens, was indeed close to the CCP and had been featured in the CCP media and on the Confucius Institute USA Center website.
However, Zeng Zheng was unable to verify whether Ms. Willens was once the Asian president of a prominent Wall Street financial institution. The Epoch Times reporter was also unable to verify whether Ms. Willings owns a quadrangle on Chang’an Street in Beijing, as Zhai Dongsheng claimed.
Zhai Dongsheng Leaks Out Heavyweight “Old Friends”: Who Helped Biden’s Son Start a Company
In the video, Zhai asserts that U.S. relations with the Chinese Communist Party will ease because “now that Biden is in power,” Wall Street will be able to exert influence again.
As a senior policy adviser to the Chinese Communist Party, Zhai’s video confirms, in no uncertain terms, that the Communist Party is in cahoots with the U.S. political establishment and that Biden is an “old friend” of the Chinese Communist Party.
In fact, Zhai also explicitly suggests that the CCP has a deal with presidential candidate Joe Biden.
In the video, Zhai said that President Trump had revealed that Biden’s son runs fund companies around the world, “who helped him (Biden’s son) build the fund companies,” and “there are deals in there.
Zhai Dongsheng implied in the video that the Chinese Communist Party helped Biden’s son to open fund companies around the world. (Screenshot of Zhai Dongsheng’s video)
President Trump has exposed the Biden family’s alleged corruption, saying that the Chinese Communist Party gave $1.5 billion to Biden’s son. Indeed, an earlier Epoch Times investigative report (see Epoch Times report for details) verified that then-Vice President Joe Biden visited China in December 2013 to meet with Xi Jinping, accompanied by his son Hunter Biden.
Ten days after that visit, the Chinese Communist Party set up a $1 billion start-up private equity fund for Hunter, Bohai Huamei (BHR). Six months later, the size of the BHR fund has been revised upward from the originally planned $1 billion to $1.5 billion, with the Chinese Communist Party responsible for raising this capital.
This hint from Zhai Dongsheng confirms that U.S. presidential candidate Joe Biden is not only an “old friend” of the Chinese Communist Party, but also worth the $1.5 billion that the Chinese Communist Party gave to his son to start his fund.
The Chinese Communist Party’s deal with Biden’s son’s Bohai-Huamei (BHR) fund also revealed other “old friends,” such as Rosemont Seneca Partners, the U.S. arm of the Bohai-Huamei fund.
Rosemont Seneca was co-founded by Hunter Biden, Christopher Heinz, stepson of former Secretary of State John Kerry, and Devon Archer, an advisor to former Secretary Kerry. John Kerry, the former Secretary of State under Obama, is also apparently an old friend of the Chinese Communist Party.
An “old friend” of the Chinese Communist Party on presidential candidate Joe Biden’s team
It is worth noting that even after being embroiled in a corruption scandal involving Biden’s son, John Kerry was booked by Biden on November 23, 2020, as a key member of his cabinet, the “Presidential Special Envoy for Climate Change.
As an “old friend” of the Chinese Communist Party, which members of Biden’s team are also old friends of the Chinese Communist Party?
In the video, Zhai Dongsheng says that Biden is coming to power, implying that the CCP is old friends with Biden and the establishment. (Screenshot from the video)
Linda Thomas-Greenfield, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations appointed by Biden, comes from the Albright Stonebridge Group (ASG), which has a deep background. Greenfield also heads Biden’s State Department transition review team.
Greenfield is a senior vice president of ASG, a strategic consulting firm with a focus on doing business with China, founded by Clinton-era Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and national security aide Samuel Berger.
ASG has a pro-Communist stance and has included many Chinese diplomats, such as Jin Ligang, chairman of ASG (Beijing), who served as a counselor in the Economic and Commercial Section of the Chinese Embassy in the U.S. Dai Yunlou, a senior advisor to ASG, served as a counselor in the Economic and Commercial Section of the Chinese Embassy in the U.S. from 2000 to 2010.
In a November 24, 2020 article, the U.S. media National Pulse said that the ASG group is equivalent to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
In addition to Greenfield, Biden also “appointed” ASG Group Vice President Sumona Guha, ASG Senior Advisor Roberta S. Jacobson, and ASG Senior Advisor Elizabeth L. Littlefield, as members of his State Department transition review team.
In addition, Biden “appointed” former Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken to serve as his secretary of state. Blinken was deputy secretary of state during the Obama administration. State Department email records released in 2019 show that Blinken had close ties to Biden’s son, Hunter.
Blinken is not only associated with the Biden family, which is suspected of being bought by the Chinese Communist Party, but also comes from WestExec Advisors, a Washington-based strategy consulting firm with a dubious background and expertise in opening up the Chinese market, which describes its business on its website as including “managing China-related risks in an era of strategic competition. The firm’s website describes its business as including “managing China-related risks in an era of strategic competition” and providing strategic advice to U.S. companies operating in the Chinese market.
Biden’s nominee for defense secretary, Michèle Flournoy, and Greenfield are both co-founders of WestExec.
Biden’s nominee for director of national intelligence, Avril Haines, also worked for the company. Biden’s “White House Press Secretary”, Jen Psaki, also worked at WestExec.
In addition to these key positions, several WestExec employees have joined Biden’s team to assist him in coordinating the Defense Department, Treasury Department, Council of Economic Advisers and other agencies.
WestExec was founded in 2017 and is staffed mostly by members of the Obama administration. Biden’s selection of numerous “cabinet members” from the company, which targets Communist China for business, has raised questions.
CNN anchor Fareed Zakaria and Biden adviser Lawrence Summers attended a Nov. 20 “Reading China” conference hosted by top Chinese Communist Party officials, according to a Dec. 2 report by National Pulse. “A cross-country conference. Summers served as U.S. Treasury Secretary under President Clinton and as Director of the White House National Economic Council under President Obama.
In addition, Nicholas Berggruen, founder of the Berggruen Institute, has also participated in several Read China conferences. The Institute is associated with Biden’s “Complete Transition Project.
The “old friends” Wang Qishan met with in the United States
In the video, Zhai Dongsheng reveals the open secret that many of the U.S. establishment and Wall Street elites are old friends of the Chinese Communist Party. In fact, the Chinese Communist Party believes so, and has used it to get through many difficult times.
In the video, Zhai Dongsheng says that the establishment and Wall Street are close and are old friends of the CCP. (Screenshot from the video)
Before Trump took office, Xi Jinping’s right-hand man, Chinese Vice President Wang Qishan, was once seen as “the person in charge of U.S.-China relations. Wang Qishan, who became vice premier of finance and trade in 2008, has led many of the Communist Party’s foreign trade negotiations and has dealt with many key financial officials in the United States, and has deep connections on Wall Street.
After President Trump took office, he launched a trade war to counter the CCP’s economic aggression, which greatly impacted the CCP regime.
In May 2018, Wang Qishan met in Beijing with a delegation of U.S. business leaders and former top political officials, including old friends such as former U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and John Thornton, the former president of Goldman Sachs.
Since Goldman Sachs entered China in 1994, it has gained the trust of the Chinese Communist Party by befriending its top officials and has been given “super national treatment. Goldman Sachs, for example, was the first foreign financial institution to receive a QFII (Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor) license, and is about to become the first wholly foreign-owned brokerage firm approved by the Communist Party. Paulson also used to work at Goldman Sachs and has been friends with Wang Qishan for more than a decade.
In September 2018, Wang also invited the heads of major U.S. financial institutions to Beijing for a “U.S.-China Financial Roundtable” in an attempt to use these old friends to influence the Trump administration. The invitation was rumored to include executives from Blackstone Group, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley and others.
These Wall Street conglomerates have profited handsomely from the series of preferential treatment they have received as a result of their ties to the Chinese Communist Party over the past few decades as they have developed the Chinese market. There is no doubt that these Wall Street elites have been old friends of the CCP for the past two decades or so.
In October 2020, the CCP hosted the 2nd Bund Financial Summit in Shanghai, where Wang Qishan made an appearance and met with old foreign friends of the CCP once again.
A partial list of guests attending the second Bund Financial Summit in October 2020.
According to the official website of the Bund Financial Summit (link to the Bund Financial Summit “Attendees” list), “old friends” from the U.S. attending the summit included many establishment politicians and Wall Street elites. Here is a list of some of the “old friends”.
1> Robert Rubin, the 70th U.S. Treasury Secretary (Clinton Administration) and Honorary Co-Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations. According to the mainland media, on November 12, 2020, former U.S. Treasury Secretary Rubin said at the China Development Forum 2020 that he hoped for better relations and cooperation between China and the United States.
2>Timothy Geithner, the 75th U.S. Secretary of the Treasury (Obama administration) and president of Warburg Pincus, a U.S. investment group. Timothy Geithner joined Warburg Pincus as President in March 2014. During the Obama administration, Geithner actively pursued a “G7-like” strategy to involve the Chinese Communist Party more in international affairs.
3>Ray Dalio, founder and chairman of Bridgewater Associates, the world’s largest hedge fund, told the New York Times in October 2020 that China’s economy is rebounding faster than the U.S. and that China (the Chinese Communist Party) could do better. “Fate is on China’s side, not the U.S.’s.”
4>Adam Posen, director of the Peterson Institute for International Economics (Peterson Institute), U.S. In an exclusive interview with the Communist Party’s Xinhua News Agency in June 2020, Posen praised the Chinese regime’s response to the new crown epidemic and the recovery of the Chinese economy. A large body of evidence and medical research has proven that the New Crown virus (CCP virus, COVID-19) spread globally due to deliberate underreporting by the CCP, and that the CCP has been blocking and covering up the true outbreak data in China.
5>Joseph Stiglitz, a varsity professor at Columbia University, Nobel laureate in economics, and chairman of the Clinton administration’s Council of Presidential Economic Advisers, has been active in recent years at various CCP-sponsored economic forums and has vigorously attacked President Trump, such as at the China Fortune Forum in Qingdao in August 2020, when he attacked the Trump administration’s prevention and economic policies.
6>Peter T. Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg. Bloomberg, a leading provider of global business and financial information and financial information, entered the Chinese market in 1995 and in recent years has officially included Chinese government bonds and policy bank bonds issued by the Communist Party of China in its global composite index, further expanding the Communist Party’s access to overseas capital markets to draw money from them.
7>Jeffrey Sachs, a professor at Columbia University and former special adviser to the UN secretary-general. 2019, Columbia professor Jeffrey Sachs has been controversial for his attacks on the Trump administration’s trade war policies and his solidarity with the Chinese Communist Party-controlled Huawei.
In addition to the aforementioned guests, the Bund Financial Summit has invited old friends, including the president of Goldman Sachs, several researchers from the Peterson Institute, Timothy Adams, president of the International Finance Association, and many other prominent figures from the U.S. political, business, and academic communities.
In a June 2020 report, Voice of America commented that “this (“old friend”) has been a tried and true ‘killer’ in the decades since Beijing established diplomatic ties with Washington,” “but it seems to have failed somewhat this time.”
The “old friends” the U.S. fired after the revelation that the Communist Party rigged the U.S. election
After the November election, as more and more evidence revealed that the Chinese Communist Party, Iran and other foreign powers tried to manipulate the U.S. election, the Trump administration began to accelerate the removal of establishment forces, that is, the Chinese Communist Party’s “old friends” within the U.S. government.
On November 25, the U.S. Department of Defense removed Kissinger and 11 other high-profile advisers from the Defense Policy Board. Kissinger, the former U.S. Secretary of State, was a key driver of U.S. diplomatic relations with the Chinese Communist Party and has been called an “old friend” by the CCP, receiving meetings from four generations of CCP leaders.
In addition to Kissinger, another prominent figure fired was Madeleine Jana Korbel Albright, chairman of the Albright Stonebridge Group (ASG) and secretary of state during the Clinton presidency, who had close ties to the Chinese Communist Party.
The Chinese Communist authorities have used “old friends in the inner circle of American power” to influence U.S. politics and China policy over the past several decades. But since the Trump administration, old friends of the Communist Party have gradually lost their former influence, and some have even shifted.
Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Paulson, for example, has been dealing with the CCP since 1992 and has made more than 100 trips to China in the past two decades, and has been called an old friend by several senior Communist Party officials. But in 2018, at the Bloomberg New Economy Forum in Singapore, Paulson criticized China’s economic practices in the 17 years since it joined the World Trade Organization, and said he supported President Trump’s proposal to reform the WTO.
Another old friend of the Chinese Communist Party, Stephen A. Schwarzman (Chinese: 苏世民), chairman of Blackstone Group, has repeatedly arranged meetings between Chinese Communist Party representatives and Trump, but they have all failed in the end.
The video of Zhai Dongsheng’s revelations shocked the United States, and even President Trump (Trump) and barristers such as Powell and Linwood retweeted it, making Zhai an internet sensation in a short time. According to public information, Zhai Dongsheng is currently the vice dean of the School of International Relations of Renmin University of China, and the deputy director and secretary general of the China Center for Foreign Strategic Studies.
According to his profile on Renmin University’s website, Zhai Dongsheng often participates in policy seminars of the Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Liaison Department, the Organization Department, the United Front Work Department, the Central Party School, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, the Academy of Military Sciences, and other Chinese Communist Party ministries and agencies. In the spring of 2013, the U.S. Department of State invited Zhai Dongsheng to Washington, D.C., to lecture to senior U.S. officials on U.S.-China economic relations, and in 2015, during Xi Jinping’s visit to the U.S., the Ministry of Propaganda appointed Zhai Dongsheng to work with the leadership of the State Council Information Office to promote the English version of Xi Jinping on Governance to U.S. readers.
