Yesterday, stunning news broke that the Department of Justice is conducting a preliminary investigation regarding classified documents from Biden’s days as VP that were found at the U. Penn Biden Center.
Well, it turns out that those documents weren’t just somewhere other than where they should be. While that’s true, a potentially larger problem is that they were in the control of an entity, the University of Pennsylvania, that has taken tens in millions of dollars from communist China.
Turning Point USA’s Benny Johnson exposed that on Twitter, saying: “The University of Pennsylvania took over $100M in “donations” from China. Thats 389% more than the average American University takes in foreign donations. Odd. Why? UPenn houses The Biden Center. Did Chinese agents PAY to get access to classified documents there? Good Question.”
Continuing, Benny attached a link to a New York Post article on the tens of millions donated to U Penn and commented “$54M in Chinese gifts donated to UPenn, home of Biden Center“.
In the New York Post article, the NYP reports that the university received stunningly large donations from China around the time that Biden’s time as VP was ending.
That’s important because it could have been around the time that the documents were moved from wherever they were supposed to be to the U Penn Biden Center, as they were from his days as VP. In the New York Post’s words:
The Ivy League college raked in a total of $54.6 million from 2014 through June 2019 in donations from China, including $23.1 million in anonymous gifts starting in 2016, according to public records.
Most of the anonymous donations came after the university announced in February 2017 that it would create the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement. Joe Biden, whose term as vice president had just ended, was to lead the center and was also named a professor at the university.
[…]The Ivy League university received $15.8 million in anonymous Chinese gifts that year, including one eye-popping $14.5 million donation in May 2018, records show.
That’s not all. According to the Washington Free Beacon, the University of Pennsylvania also received a $3 million donation from a Chinese businessman unconnected to the school in 2019 that it was having trouble explaining and the government was unable to understand. As the Washington Free Beacon reported:
The University of Pennsylvania pocketed a $3 million donation last year from a mysterious Hong Kong shell company that is owned by a Shanghai businessman with deep ties to Chinese government officials.
The donation from Xu Xeuqing, who has no apparent connection to the University of Pennsylvania and was previously embroiled in a Shanghai public corruption scandal, raises questions about the true source of the money. Documents reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon show Xeuqing has close ties to the Chinese Communist Party.
At the time, it was suspected that China was attempting to buy influence at US universities, with those large donation dollars being just an example of that. But now we know why the CCP might have wanted influence with UPenn: the classified Biden documents in its control.
There’s as yet no proof of that, but the timing is suspicious, as is the amount of money thrown U Penn’s way by China.
