Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Jon Ossoff has repeatedly failed to answer questions about his ties to the Chinese Communist Party, U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) says.
Perdue faces Ossoff in Georgia’s U.S. Senate runoff on Tuesday.
Jon @Ossoff still has no answer for his alarming ties to the Chinese Communist Government.

Perdue’s tweet linked to a Fox News interview in which he pointed out that Ossoff hid his connections to the CCP during his primary and lied after it came out, and then kept on lying about having taken money from the Chinese.
Perdue called Ossoff a documentary journalist who “has never really created American jobs” and whose business “was bought for him by his daddy. He’s a trust-fund that really wants to be in politics since he was in high school.”
“The Chinese Communist Party is notorious for identifying young, ambitious liberal politicians … and that’s what we have going on with Jon Ossoff,” Perdue told Fox News.
Members of the Georgia Republican Party on Tuesday said the media is “turning a blind eye” to Ossoff’s ties to the Chinese Communist Party, The Georgia Star News reported.
Members of the Georgia GOP, in a press release, said that among other things, Ossoff took money from PCCW, a Chinese company tied to the country’s communist government and failed to disclose his relationship with PCCW in his May disclosure. The Georgia GOP last month filed an ethics complaint with the Senate Select Committee on Ethics over the matter.
Months after leaving a job as a national security aide in Congress, Ossoff used his Twitter account to urge people to read Xinhua News Agency, a Chinese Communist Party-run propaganda organ, The Washington Free Beacon reported.
