A new report has claimed that the Biden administration worked with a dark money giant on “transforming” the food system.
According to a Fox News report the Biden administration worked with the Arabella Advisors consulting firm, which oversees a behemoth liberal dark money network, on key agriculture policies.
From Fox News:
The internal Department of Agriculture (USDA) communications — obtained by Americans for Public Trust (APT) and shared with Fox News Digital — show that Kessler was involved in initiatives to “transform” the U.S. food system and to crack down on the meat industry for high prices. Kessler was the only individual on the email chains who wasn’t affiliated with the USDA.
“These emails reveal that Eric Kessler has direct access to Biden cabinet officials and plays an intimate role in shaping this administration’s agenda,” APT executive director Caitlin Sutherland told Fox News Digital.
“As the architect and operator of the largest dark money network in U.S. politics, Kessler’s cozy relationship with Secretary Vilsack raises questions about the level of influence his foreign-funded Arabella network has on the Biden administration and its policies,” she continued.
On July 15, 2021, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack emailed Kessler, Marty Matlock, a USDA senior advisor for food systems resiliency, and Matthew McKenna, a former senior advisor to Vilsack, expressing his excitement about a food processing initiative that he noted the three were helping to “direct and lead.”
Following the July 15, 2021 email information received by the news network from the federal government was highly redacted.
All we know is that a memo on December 6, 2021, says the changes they are making will transform the “food system.”
“I have reviewed the memo that you prepared on our transforming food system effort,” Vilsack wrote. “Appreciate the thought and work that was put into it.”
