Why was Top Secret Compartmentalised information at the Penn Center for Chinese Influence?
Why didn’t they just issue a warrant and send in a SWAT team to get the documents??
Pencil neck already set the rules, SWAT RAID THEM
I had never heard of this Penn Biden Center “think tank” until the document fiasco. This outfit sounds like a CCP front to me.
"The Committee has learned UPenn received millions of dollars from anonymous Chinese sources, with a marked uptick in donations when then-former Vice President Biden was announced as leading the Penn Biden Center initiative. Following the formation of the Penn Biden Center, donations originating from China tripled and continued while Joe Biden explored a potential run for President."Coincidence? You decide.
Republicans better start going for the throat with their new found power.
Considering how corrupt we now know the left is I strongly suspect they intend to remain in power indefinitely......and there’s only one way I can think of to ensure that.
As a dogs hind leg....
What’s the purpose of having classified documents at the Penn Biden Center? Exactly how often did Biden actually step foot in the Penn Biden Center? He has enough problems going to work at the White Hut since he is so frequently in Greenville or Rehoboth. Biden was locked down in his campaign bunker for nearly all of 2020. I’m willing to bet that Biden was only at the Penn Biden Center for its grand opening and a few select times to fund raise. Face it, Biden doesn’t work. He never had worked. He probably only sat behind his desk at the Penn Biden Center for a photo op to make it look like he was working.
After his time as vice president, Biden became the Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor, the first to hold such a job. Over the first few years of holding this position, Biden earned more than $900,000 from the university for speaking at various events. According to a report by the Philadelphia Inquirer, he “collected $371,159 in 2017 plus $540,484 in 2018 and early 2019 for a vaguely defined role that involved no regular classes and around a dozen public appearances on campus, mostly in big, ticketed events.”Another $1 million payoff to Biden for a no-show "job."
Then there is this...
Penn Biden Center where classified papers were found is a ‘dark-money nightmare’So he opens the Biden Center, gets the bogus "professorship" for a $1 million payoff, and the University collects almost $60 million from the Chinese.

“The Penn Biden Center is a dark-money, revolving-door nightmare where foreign competitors like China donated millions of dollars to the university so that they could have access to future high-ranking officials,” said Tom Anderson, director of the Government Integrity Project at the Virginia-based National Legal and Policy Center.
The University of Pennsylvania 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 officially announced in February 2017 that it would create the academic center named for Biden, whose term as vice president under Barack Obama had just ended. In addition to leading the think tank, Biden was named a professor at the school.
Other Ivy League colleges have raked in Chinese money, including Harvard, which got $75 million during the 2014-2019 period, and Yale, which received $43.5 million, records show.
From the above article, Penn isn't the only corrupt Northeast school: "Other Ivy League colleges have raked in Chinese money, including Harvard, which got $75 million during the 2014-2019 period, and Yale, which received $43.5 million."
How many such Trump or Republican "Centers" are there collecting corrupt cash from our enemies?
Sounds like TREASON to me!
So, Biden was getting pay for play money from the Chinese. What was the function of the Biden Center? Did it have a legitimate function? Chinese influence spreading, I suppose. Was it used to track anti CCP US citizens of Chinese ethnicity?
I hope the Republicans will go for the throat, but since so many Republicans have been receiving money, they probably will pull a Romney (had Obama on the ropes after 2nd debate), and back off. Sadly, count on it. We have to expose Republican duplicity.
Not to mention how all those Ivy League universities have sold their souls to the devil in more ways than one.
Incredible!!! No investigative journalism going on anymore? Really criminal and unknown or if known, swept under the rug!
“”I had never heard of this Penn Biden Center “think tank” until the document fiasco.””
Known only to the few who benefited from it, I suppose. Someone said this week, “we don’t know what we don’t know” relative to another news story and I guess we should count ourselves lucky! I’d feel myself lucky not to know about any of this corruption that takes place in DC - and of course, other places!
The harm is done.
Don’t impeach Biden.
Let this go.
Pass a new law stipulating 24-hour supervision —for a period that ends when he leaves office. Do not allow it to be renewed afterward.
Impeaching Biden would legitimize the prosecution of President Trump. It would distract congress from more critical work, like dismantling Obama’s police state. It could me Kamala assuming office. It would be an immense waste of time at best.
Leave him in place and let the dems own him. Just make sure he doesn’t ever happen again.
Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy & Global Engagement
Nothing makes me laugh more than the use of "Biden" and "Think" in the same sentence. A close second is the use of "Biden" and "Diplomacy" in the same name. He is the lowest IQ person to ever be president. He's a corrupt, dirty, lying, filthy skunk with zero diplomatic skills.
