WASHINGTON – On Wednesday, Congressman Lance Gooden (R-Texas) sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray demanding he immediately launch an investigation into Biden-appointee Dominic Ng’s reported ties to the Chinese Communist Party and possible links to Chinese Intelligence front groups. President Biden appointed Dominic Ng to serve as the U.S. member of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Business Advisory Council in July of 2022.

Rep. Lance Gooden said, “It is unfathomable that a man like Dominic Ng would ever be appointed to a government position given his extensive ties to CCP officials and intelligence front groups. Mr. Ng is compromised at best and a traitor at worst, but his donation of over $100,000 to President Biden’s re-election campaign has been rewarded with a position to represent U.S. business interests in Asia. The president should immediately rescind his appointment and the FBI should launch an investigation into whether Mr. Ng has passed sensitive information to Chinese officials.”

Last week, the Daily Caller News Foundation confirmed Dominic Ng served as the executive director of the China Overseas Exchange Association and now serves as the executive director of the China Overseas Friendship Association. Both organizations are front groups for Chinese intelligence operations and members of the organizations are considered likely Chinese influence operatives.

Joining Congressman Gooden as signatories on the letter are Reps. Tom Tiffany (R-WI), Lauren Boebert (R-CO), Ben Cline (R-VA), Doug LaMalfa (R-CA), and Keith Self (R-TX).
