A firm backed by the Chinese government is poised to purchase Forbes Magazine for as much as $650 million.

The proposed merger between Forbes Global Media Holdings (Forbes) and Magnus Opus Acquisition Limited (Magnus Opus) was first announced in August of last year, and is expected to finalize within the next month. SEC filings show that Magnus Opus received its seed capital from the state owned Chinese Investment Corporation.

“Forbes is a recognizable American brand with immense propaganda value to the CCP,” Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Bill Haggerty (R-TN) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) wrote in an open letter to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, calling for more oversight of the CCP’s purchasing of U.S. assets.
