REPORT: Biden DOJ Nominee Owns Stock In Company Accused Of Fueling Mexican Cartel Heroin Production

Joe Biden’s pick for associate attorney general has some troubling connections.

Vanita Gupta owns millions in stock in a company that is suspected of connections to the heroin trade of Mexican cartels.

According to an August 2020 Bloomberg report, American company Avantor sold acetic anhydride to cartels that used it to make high-grade “china white” heroin and methamphetamine. Biden’s pick for associate attorney general, Vanita Gupta, owns between $11 million and $55 million in the company’s stock, according to her financial disclosure form as reported by ABC News.

Biden’s campaign website stated that if elected, Biden would “[d]irect the U.S. Justice Department to make actions that spurred this crisis a top investigative and, where appropriate, civil and criminal enforcement priority.”

Since Bloomberg’s report came out, Avantor reportedly stopped selling acetic anhydride in Mexico, as the country’s authorities announced a criminal investigation. Fox News asked the Justice Department if they are investigating Avantor, but they did not immediately respond.
