$60 million in Chinese cash went to university’s ‘Biden Center,’ new book says

In his 2015 book, Clinton Cash, author Peter Schweizer laid out the troubling connections between foreign interests and then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Schweizer has since come out with a new book that focuses on the Biden family called Red Handed, and what he wrote about Chinese donations to a major university is even more troubling. 

As Breitbart contributor John Hayward observed in a recent review, Schweizer lays out the ties between President Joe Biden and the Chinese Communist Party.

China money

For example, the author notes that not long after leaving the vice presidency, Biden was made a professor at the University of Pennsylvania.

What’s more, the college also established the “Biden Center,” which was tasked with promoting “global leadership.”

However, Schweizer says this vision appeared to be focused largely on countering Russia while paying little attention to how much of a threat China has become. According to him, the reason for that is obvious.

“In the three years before the announcement, the university received around $15 million,” Schweizer wrote.

“In the three years after, the total was close to $40 million,” he continues. “The latter number is $60 million from China if you include contracts.”

Not all of the donors are publicly known, but those who include the state-owned China Merchants Bank. Another is Cathay Fortune, a company whose owner Schweizer describes as being “a secretive Chinese billionaire who appears to have strong links with the Communist Party.”

Blinken benefited

Among those to work at the Biden Center was future Secretary of State Antony Blinken, as evidenced in a 2019 tweet touting Blinken’s role as managing director.

Yet, as Hayward points out, Blinken “was famously ambushed and curb-stomped by Chinese diplomats during his first bilateral conference with them in March.”

Schweizer explains that this incident wasn’t a one-off, with Hayward writing that the Biden administration is “staffed with people who expected China to play softball — and were absolutely stunned when the first diplomatic pitches they lobbed to Beijing were returned with smoking line drives right into their faces.”
