The latest link was uncovered by a government watchdog group that is now demanding that the U.S. attorney investigating Hunter Biden in Delaware also look into tens of millions of dollars in anonymous donations from China to the Ivy League institution, the University of Pennsylvania, where there is an academic center named for Joe Biden.
According to the New York Post, which has been all over the Hunter Biden/Joe Biden/corruption story since before the 2020 election, UPenn took in some $54.6 million from 2014 through June 2019 from the ChiComs, including $23.1 million in anonymous gifts beginning in 2016, before then-Vice President Joe Biden left office and while his son was scooping up millions in corrupt deals in Ukraine, Russia and China, public records indicate.
"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 Post reported.
"The center, which is located in Washington, DC, opened its doors in February 2018. Antony Blinken, whom Biden named as secretary of state, briefly served as its managing director," the paper continued.
The institution is formally called the "Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement," which is hilarious, actually, considering that Joe Biden's reputation for being a 'foreign policy expert' is a joke. According to one of Barack Obama's defense secretaries, Robert Gates, Biden hasn't gotten a single major foreign policy issue right throughout his 50-plus years in politics.
Gates called Biden a man of integrity but wrote in a 2014 book that he believes Biden's "been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades."
It seems, however, that Gates may have just been trying to be civil by calling Biden 'a man of integrity,' based on all of the information we are now learning about his and his son's nefarious 'business' arrangements with competitor governments.
The flood of donations to the Biden Center is likely related to Hunter Biden's business dealings with the ChiComs, the National Legal and Policy Center, a Virginia-based government watchdog group, said in complaints lodged in May and October 2020 to the Departments of Justice and Education, The Post reported.
The group asked U.S. Attorney David Weiss last week to step up and add the Chinese donations to UPenn as part of his ongoing federal tax investigation of Hunter Biden.
“We’ve asked … Weiss to pursue the larger network of individuals and institutions who benefited from millions doled out by foreign interests connected to Hunter Biden’s work in China and Ukraine,” Tom Anderson, director of the NLPC’s Government Integrity Project, said, according to The Post.
In a 12-page complaint, the government watchdog referenced text found on Hunter Biden's laptop that CEFC China Energy Co., now defunct but one of the firms that Hunter Biden held a financial stake in, sought to lobby American political leaders but did not want to register under the Foreign Agent Registration Act, which is a requirement for all foreign lobbyists.
“We don’t want to have to register as foreign agents under the FCPA [sic] which … is much more expansive than people who should know choose not to know,” says the May 1, 2017, text sent from Hunter Biden to his former business partner, Tony Bobulinski.
According to a UPenn spokesperson, there have been no anonymous Chinese donations made to the Biden Center.
“The Penn Biden Center has never solicited or received any gifts from any Chinese or other foreign entity. In fact, the University has never solicited any gifts for the Center,” Stephen MacCarthy said.
But he also refused to say how the massive above-board Chinese donations were used.
The Bidens are dirty and have no business within 1,000 miles of the White House.
