Now, long after coming out as a whistleblower, Luft himself has been charged by the Biden DOJ for allegedly engaging in "multiple serious schemes" involving the Chinese and Iranians alongside a "former high-ranking US Government official." The charges include numerous offenses related to failing to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, arms trafficking, Iranian sanctions violations, and making false statements to federal agents.
According to the DOJ, Luft allegedly "subverted foreign agent registration laws in the United States to seek to promote Chinese policies by acting through a former high-ranking U.S. Government official, acted as a broker in deals for dangerous weapons and Iranian oil, and he told multiple lies about his crimes to law enforcement."
The agency explained that Luft had allegedly conspired with others to "advance the interests of the People’s Republic of China ... as agents of China-based principals, without registering as foreign agents as required under US law."
He supposedly used his position as co-director of the think tank to recruit and pay the aforementioned government official at the behest of Chinese bosses, to "publicly support certain policies with respect to China."
In the video shared by the Post, Luft alleged that he had provided potentially inciminating evidence against Biden during a meeting with FBI and DOJ officials in 2019, but that his warnings were not heeded, but rather, covered up.
"I, who volunteered to inform the US government about a potential security breach and about compromising information about a man vying to be the next president, am now being hunted by the very same people who I informed — and may have to live on the run for the rest of my life on the run," Luft said.
"I'm not a Republican. I'm not a Democrat. I have no political motive or agenda … I did it out of deep concern that if the Bidens were to come to power, the country would be facing the same traumatic Russia collusion scandal — only this time with China. Sadly, because of the DOJ's cover-up, this is exactly what happened."
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
