It has been claimed by critics that the establishment of the Ivy League think organization where lawyers discovered secret documents connected to the Obama White House was funded by tens of millions of dollars from unknown Chinese sources.
The White House announced on Monday that the Department of Justice is looking into how “a limited number” of sensitive documents from President Biden’s time as vice president ended up at the Washington, DC, assume tank carrying his name. According to information released on Wednesday, additional papers were discovered at a different site.
Public records show that soon after the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, which served as Joe Biden’s office when he was elected president, was introduced in 2017, the University of Pennsylvania collected over $30 million from Chinese investors.
Director of the Government Integrity Project at the Virginia-based National Legal and Policy Center Tom Anderson stated “, “The Penn Biden Center is a dark-money, rapidly rotating nightmare where foreign opponents like China made donations money to the university for them to have access to future high-ranking officials.”
Chinese donations to the University of Pennsylvania totaled $54.6 million from 2014 to June 2019, including $23.1 million in gifts that were made privately beginning in 2016.
