The board that manages the Thrift Savings Plan has funneled the retirement savings of servicemembers and federal employees to state-sponsored Chinese companies, directly funding the Chinese Communist Party.

The Thrift Savings Plan is a retirement and investment plan for federal employees and members of the military.
