Citizens United, foreign nationals, and the China Investment Corp.’s “vast U.S. holdings”

In his State of the Union the President referred to what in his view was the potential for foreign involvement in U.S. elections after Citizens United.  Many sources today report that the China Investment Corp. recently disclosed that it holds $9.6 billion in 60 companies.

In a Securities and Exchange Commission filing on Friday, China Investment Corp. said it had spread its investments among a wide variety of index funds and blue-chip companies such as Citigroup, Coca-Cola, Visa, Pfizer and Apple.
