Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross may have technically served as a board member of a joint Chinese venture while running the administration's trade war with China, according to a new report.

Ross, 82, is listed as serving on the board of a Chinese joint venture until January 2019, nearly two years after his confirmation, according to Chinese documents reported by Foreign Policy.

Ross angrily denied the allegation, providing a copy of a February 27, 2017 letter addressed to his own company stating that he 'shall be deemed to have retired, resigned or withdrawn' from every entity affiliated with WL Ross & Co.'

'Instead of reporting on well-documented facts, including a dated and signed letter of resignation that I provided them, Foreign Policy Magazine is purporting a false narrative that I remained on the board of a Chinese company, citing Chinese documentation,' Ross told the magazine in a statement.
