Critics have questioned Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt in his bid for a Senate seat in 2022 amid concerns surrounding his allegedly pro-Chinese Communist Party (CCP) stance. Schmitt has reportedly condemned China over the past several years, but had previously looked at partnering with them while he was a state senator.

“We need to be a player again. We need to invest in our future and our infrastructure,” said Schmitt. “We have a location and transportation assets that can put us on the map again and improve our economy.”

While he first filed a lawsuit last year against the CCP and the Wuhan Lab over COVID-19, he allegedly tried to increase exports and foreign trade with China in 2011. However, when his office was questioned, they denied Schmitt has helped China and called the claim “laughable.”

In the meantime, Schmitt said he filed the suit to hold the Chinese Communist Party and Chinese authorities accountable for their role in the COVID-19 pandemic. “The COVID-19 pandemic, which has taken lives, ruined businesses, destroyed economies, and more. Serving these entities is an important step in that process.”
