Stuffing tens of thousands of dollars into a freezer has morphed into multibillion dollar equity deals done in the dark corners of the world.\r\n\r\nFocusing on corruption by both major parties, this book shows the need for further reform to keep those committed to serving our country from serving themselves instead.\r\n\r\n<img class="size-medium wp-image-63528 aligncenter" src="https:\/\/see.news\/wp-content\/uploads\/2019\/07\/BMMVR-199x300.jpg" alt="" \/>\r\n<p style="text-align: center"><strong>Secret Empires<\/strong><\/p>\r\nThe astonishing widespread massive corruption of some of the biggest names in American politics that Peter Schweizer reveals in his new blockbuster expose is shocking, startling and sickening.\r\n\r\nAn American bank opening in China would be prohibited by US law from hiring a slew of family members of top Chinese politicians. However, a Chinese bank opening in America can hire anyone it wants. It can even invite the friends and families of American.\r\n\r\nThe deeply researched book contains 859 end notes includes revelations about involving George Soros, Barack Obama, Tom Steyer, Penny Pritzker, Jared Kushner, John Kerry, and myriad others. Four of the book\u2019s central characters are Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, Mitch McConnell and Elaine Chao.\r\n\r\nSchweizer traces the intersection between these four individuals and deals involving China.
