WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI), a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, today released the following statement on President Biden’s decision to select Mitch Landrieu to serve as a senior adviser and infrastructure coordinator after the Washington Free Beacon reported that Landrieu served as an advisor to a group that received funding from CCP-affiliated organizations.
“Mitch Landrieu served as an advisor to the United States China Heartland Association, a group that is funded by CCP United Front organizations and that promotes Chinese investment in U.S. infrastructure projects. This should disqualify him from overseeing the implementation of President Biden’s massive infrastructure package. The President must immediately reconsider this selection and find another individual — who hasn’t advised an entity funded by the CCP — to do the job.”
