An associate professor and researcher at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville has been arrested for allegedly concealing ties to a Chinese university while receiving federal funding, according to a recent Justice Department press release.
Amning Hu was charged with three counts of wire fraud and three counts of making false statements following a grand jury indictment for concealing his affiliation with Beijing University of Technology (BJUT) in China in order to receive a research grant from NASA.
According to the Justice Department, NASA is prohibited from using federal dollars to collaborate with China or Chinese universities. Hu allegedly made false representations and omissions to UTK about his affiliation with BJUT caused UTK to falsely certify to NASA that UTK was in compliance with federal law.
The nature of the particular research at issue is currently unclear. As The Hill reported, the university has since removed from its website information about the professor's work. The Beijing University of Technology could not be reached for comment.

DOJ is really going after these Chinese professors. Are they all spies and all stealing US IP?
I suspect the answers to those questions are “yes”, and “yes”.
> DOJ is really going after these Chinese professors.
Generally because they are a bunch of liars.
Probably a bunch of communists too.
Replace China with USSR and the ACLU and media would tell us it is a Red Scare and witchhunting.
It’s not just the professors but the students as well. We are the suckers for letting them come here.
The Chinese dont let them out of China unless they are spies. Just like the USSR
If they have relatives in China, they will do what the Chinese government tells them to do.
