Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., criticized former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch – who served under President Barack Obama – for allegedly lobbying on behalf of a Chinese military company. 

"It is disgraceful but unsurprising that Barack Obama’s former Attorney General Loretta Lynch is now working on behalf of a Communist Chinese drone company that the Department of Defense has identified as a Chinese military company," Stefanik said in an interview with Fox News Digital.

Lynch has reportedly been lobbying the U.S. Pentagon on behalf of a company in China known as DJI, Fox News Digital reports. 

"Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch is lobbying the DOD to request they remove DJI from this list so the Communist Chinese company can operate with impunity in America. U.S. government officials, both past and present, should be working to ban these Communist Chinese spy drones and bolster the domestic drone industry, not advocating on behalf of a Chinese military company and the Chinese Communist Party," Stefanik continued in her statement. 

According to a report from Reuters, Lynch requested in a letter to the Pentagon that one of her clients, SZ DJI Technology Co., be taken off of the Department of Justice's list of military companies in China. 

Lynch currently works as a partner in a law firm and focuses on national security and government investigations, according to her profile on the firm's website.
