New details of Biden’s relationship with China emerge

Former Vice President Joe Biden had some of his first interactions with the Chinese government in the 1980s. At that time, his employer, Rockings Consulting, Inc., a training company in Delaware, had been providing paid training to Chinese and other foreign bureaucrats. Over time, Rockings accumulated a vast stockpile of information that was later transferred to Chinese contractors by American representatives or employees, including detailed information on U.S. government facilities, global trade agreements, air traffic control facilities, intelligence measures and trade negotiations, The New York Times reported in 2013. The firm now also provides the same services for the U.S. government. When his son, former Delaware Sen. Beau Biden, was appointed to the U.S. Senate as of January 2013, a “training company” at the same address hired by his father to serve in an unofficial capacity became the research and development manager for the Peace Corps. (This and other aspects of the firm’s role in the Peace Corps could come up when he is confirmed as America’s next ambassador to the Philippines. Former Vice President Biden, along with former President Obama, appointees to the Senate, the United Nations and State Department and a close friend of President Duterte, has been accused of engaging in illegal influence peddling there.)
