Liberal MP Gladys Liu is being a bit too clever-Asking ASIO to vet visitors while being (until recently) a member of the United Front? Ms Liu seems to be attempting sterilization of those connected to her

Liu does not want her ethnic background to define her career as an MP.

As reported by Dan Oakes on  ABC AM on 14 August 2019
New Federal MP Gladys Liu, the first Chinese-Australian woman to ever sit in the House of Representatives, is facing questions over her links to a secretive Chinese influence network.
The ABC can reveal ties have been discovered between the Liberal member for Chisholm and an organisation linked to Beijing's United Front, which aims to influence politics in foreign countries.

However, just as reported  on 24 July 2019 by The Australian:

Chinese-born Australian MP Gladys Liu has asked chief spy Duncan Lewis whether ASIO could vet anyone requesting her for face-to-face meetings.

The Liberal MP was also told by ASIO to consider deleting the popular Chinese social media platform WeChat, which was already downloaded on her mobile.

At a special security briefing for new MPs, Ms Liu asked Mr Lewis if there was a process for ASIO to run background checks on people and organisations before­ she agreed to meetings

This seems to be a classic attempt at sanitization so as to remove suspicion at official levels of those associated with her.
