Gal Luft, a former adviser to a Chinese energy conglomerate now claims to have provided the FBI with incriminating information about the Biden family’s foreign business dealings.
He is now calling himself a whistleblower and has announced his intention to reveal the names of those involved, after being detained on what he believes are politically motivated charges. According to him, he has given information to the DOJ about the Biden family’s foreign business deals.
Luft was arrested on Friday.
A defense expert has stated that the recent arrest of Prof. Gal Luft in Cyprus due to charges linked to the illegal exportation of arms to Libya and China is part of an attempt by the Biden administration to silence him. Luft, an Israeli professor, claims that he had been cooperating with an investigation into Hunter Biden’s business activities when he was apprehended under an Interpol Red Notice at the behest of the US.
According to reports, Gal Luft claims to have provided the Justice Department with information about Hunter Biden, his father, and his uncle, Jim Biden in March 2019.
Although some may be quick to disregard Luft’s allegations as an empty threat, his association with CEFC China Energy suggests that he may possess pertinent information about the Bidens. Additionally, an attorney representing Luft has indicated that he intends to offer information about Luft’s situation to Congress.
According to Luft’s lawyer, Mordechai Tzivin, the arrest of his client was politically motivated and aimed at stifling him for providing compromising information in a corruption case purportedly linked to Hunter Biden, the son of US President Joe Biden.
“The arrest came four years after Luft cooperated with FBI and Department of Justice investigators to help them with information about the case,” he claimed.
On Sunday, Tzivin said that Luft could “bury Hunter Biden, that’s why they’re trying to bury him first.”
He continued by claiming that “if it were Russia, this would’ve already been a diplomatic collision… it’s not unreasonable to think that the Democrats or some of their peers would like him gone.”
“His testimony will be very devastating, it will divert attention to the president himself as well,” Tzivin claimed.
On February 18, 2023, Luft tweeted out, “I’ve been arrested in Cyprus on a politically motivated extradition request by the US. The US, claiming I’m an arms dealer. It would be funny if it weren’t tragic. I’ve never been an arms dealer. DOJ is trying to bury me to protect Joe,Jim&Hunter Biden. Shall I name names?”
He hasn’t tweeted out since then.
Luft’s lawyer, Mordechai Tzivin, has expressed concern about his client’s safety and fears that he may be in danger if he is extradited. He stated that when there is a political agenda at play, Interpol typically does not honor extradition requests. Tzivin did not claim that Luft’s life was in jeopardy, but he did say that his client was at significant risk.
Tzivin also claimed that he fears that Luft is in “great danger. I fear extradition because you don’t know how such procedures could end. Tzivin continued, “When there is a political motive, Interpol does not extradite, or when there is danger to someone’s life. I don’t want to say that he is in mortal danger, but he is indeed in great danger.”
Luft served as an adviser to CEFC China Energy, which is suspected of being closely associated with the Chinese government. CNN has reported that the conglomerate donated at least $350,000 to Luft’s think tank. Hunter Biden was allegedly paid at least $6 million in 2017 by the group to secure energy investment deals in the US.
Gal Luft’s assertions coincide with the news that Eric Schwerin, a previous business associate of Hunter Biden, is cooperating with the House Oversight Committee’s inquiry into the foreign business activities of the Biden family. The investigation has placed a significant emphasis on Hunter Biden’s association with CEFC China Energy. The Justice Department has been scrutinizing Hunter Biden’s tax and foreign business practices since 2018, but it appears that the investigation is focused primarily on his failure to pay taxes rather than his foreign business dealings.
