Report: University of Delaware rakes in TENS OF MILLIONS of foreign dollars from China, Saudi Arabia, and other countries since launch of Biden Institute
· Feb 7, 2023 ·

Don't pay attention to the man behind the curtain!

It's totally no big deal that President Biden, who has been known to have unethical ties to foreign nations and peddle influence through his son and brother in order to line his pocketbooks, is the name behind an initiative that is bringing in tens of millions of foreign dollars for a university in his home state.

Nothing corrupt going on here!

China, Saudi Arabia, Oman, and Turkey have poured millions of dollars into the University of Delaware since the school launched the Biden Institute, President Joe Biden's domestic policy think tank led by his sister, according to U.S. Department of Education records reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon.

Since the Biden Institute was established in 2017, the University of Delaware has received $6,704,250 in funding from China, $23,610,996 from Saudi Arabia, $2,513,646 from Oman and $1,673,847 from Turkey, according to data from the U.S. Department of Education.

Weird that all this money started pouring in once Biden was associated with the University. What a coincidence.

I wonder why countries like China and Saudi Arabia would want to pour money into a university that hosts an adversaries' foreign policy think tank? It couldn't be that they're using that money to influence US relations, could it?

News of the funding comes as lawmakers have called for an investigation into President Joe Biden's private papers housed at the University of Delaware, after federal authorities uncovered classified documents at Biden's home and at the Penn Biden Center, the president's other foreign-policy-focused think tank at the University of Pennsylvania. It also comes as the University of Pennsylvania has faced questions from Congress about foreign donations it received after launching the Penn Biden Center.

The University of Delaware has declined to disclose the Biden Institute's donors and told the Free Beacon in 2020 that these records are not subject to public information laws because the Biden Institute is privately funded.

Oh, and China and other foreign nations just so happen to be buying influence at a place where Joe Biden illegally stored classified documents.

I'm sure that the Chinese had no idea what a treasure trove this would be.

Government watchdogs said the University of Delaware's secrecy over the Biden Institute's funding raises questions about whether any foreign funds have gone to the think tank, which is chaired by Biden's sister, Valerie Biden Owens, and has employed some of his top aides and political allies.

"The secrecy surrounding the suspected foreign funding of the Biden Institute at the University of Delaware is on a par with that of the Penn Biden Center of the University of Pennsylvania," said Paul Kamenar, counsel to the National Legal and Policy Center, an ethics watchdog group that has investigated both think tanks. "The House oversight committees need to uncover the dark money sources in both cases, particularly from China."

Honestly, I'm surprised this is called the Biden Institute and not the Xi Jinping School for Chinese Spycraft!
