        Biden Think Tank That Housed Classified Docs Also Hosted Event That Pushed Greater Engagement With China

        Reuters Alana Goodman
        January 24, 2023

        The Biden think tank at the University of Pennsylvania where the president stashed classified documents didn't just have lax security—it also hosted events in partnership with organizations that promoted closer engagement with China, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.



        The Penn Biden Center hosted a two-day "bootcamp" for congressional staffers in June that encouraged closer ties with China on issues like green energy and academia, according to a source. One of the organizing groups has an advisory board member who served as spokesman for the controversial Chinese tech giant Baidu. The event was held as anonymous donors from China have poured millions into the University of Pennsylvania.

        There were no posted security officials at the Penn Biden Center during the June conference—just regular Penn staffers—and attendees were able to walk around the center unmonitored and make use of unused rooms for phone calls and other private work during the conference.

        The news raises questions about security at the Penn Biden Center following revelations that classified documents from Joe Biden’s vice presidency had been improperly stored at the think tank in Washington, D.C., and at his home in Wilmington, Del. Biden has pushed back against notions that he mishandled information, describing the Penn Biden Center as a place where his lawyers "set up an office for me—a secure office in the Capitol, when I—the four years after being vice president, I was a professor at Penn."

        The events also raise questions about the extent of the Biden team’s involvement in the University of Pennsylvania’s opaquely funded China initiatives, which ramped up in recent years as millions of dollars in Chinese donations poured into the university. The university has denied that the contributions have any connection to the Penn Biden Center, and a spokesman told the Free Beacon that no foreign donations were specifically earmarked for the think tank.

        Rebeccah Heinrichs, a national security expert and senior fellow at the Hudson Institute, said the news that outside groups hosted events at the Penn Biden Center while classified documents were stored at the office was 'incredibly alarming."

        'The fact that [the documents] were not secured, [were] open and uncared for, and also that you had this other activity going on inside this facility, with individuals that may not have the best interests of the American people at heart, is shocking," said Heinrichs.

        'I would like to know more about … who was going in and out of these specific workshops, these discussions, who has been through this facility," Heinrichs added. 'The American people deserve a full accounting of who may have had easy access to these documents."

        The University of Pennsylvania did not respond to a request for comment on the event.

        The two-day "congressional bootcamp," which was held at the Penn Biden Center in D.C., was co-organized by the university’s Center for the Study of Contemporary China, the Penn Project on the Future of U.S.-China Relations, and the Center for Strategic and International Studies, according to the university's website.

        A dozen fellows from the Penn Project on the Future of U.S.-China Relations spoke at the congressional bootcamp, according to the website. The project is financed by Penn’s China Research and Engagement Fund, which is "designed to stimulate and support activity in China" and engagement with the Penn Wharton China Center but does not disclose its individual donors.

        The Penn Project on the Future of U.S.-China Relations’s advisory board includes Kaiser Kuo, the former spokesman for Chinese tech giant Baidu, who is now editor at large of a news outlet called SupChina. Members of Congress have been probing SupChina—which recently changed its name to the China Project—for potentially acting as an unregistered agent for China, Semafor reported in October.

        The allegations are based on a sworn statement a former SupChina reporter, Shannon Van Sant, filed with the Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission that month.

        In the complaint, Van Sant claimed Kuo said during an editorial meeting that the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong were organized by the U.S. government.

        "He said, ‘the United States government is orchestrating the protests in Hong Kong through funding and training provided by the National Endowment for Democracy,"’ she wrote. "Kuo said the U.S. government was responsible for the unrest in Hong Kong, forcing China to impose national security legislation to protect the city."

        Van Sant said the outlet’s leadership pushed writers to adopt a pro-Beijing slant and consulted with Chinese Communist Party entities on story ideas. One of SupChina’s funders, financial consultant Clarence Kwan, was also a board member of the China Overseas Exchange Association, a group that works under the Chinese government’s United Front foreign influence department, according to Semafor.

        Kuo was not listed as a speaker at the congressional bootcamp, according to a conference schedule obtained by the Free Beacon. Speakers included Penn professor Jacques deLisle, China studies chair at the Center for Strategic and International Studies Jude Blanchette, and former Obama administration China adviser Ryan Hass.



        Panel topics included "China’s Climate and Energy Policies," "Beijing’s Evolving Strategy on Taiwan," and "Public Opinion in China: What Do We Know?" The two-day conference closed with a reception at Bistro Bis, a restaurant at the nearby Kimpton George Hotel.

        The Biden think tank at the University of Pennsylvania where the president stashed classified docs didn't just have lax security—it also hosted events in partnership with organizations that promoted closer engagement with China, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.

          There’s no hiding Biden’s fright over classified document scandal

          ByMiranda Devine
          January 22, 2023 10:34pm

          Joe Biden is panicking.

          An astonishing fifth trove of classified documents was discovered in the president’s Delaware mansion Friday, not by his own lawyers this time, but during a more thorough, 13-hour search by the Department of Justice while he holed up in his beach house in Rehoboth, which ought to be next on the DOJ search list.

          Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland has had the audacity to appoint a special counsel to investigate Biden.

          His long-term trusted factotum Ron Klain is bailing out.

          And someone at the White House is throwing his trusted longtime executive assistant Kathy Chung under the bus. The Washington Post quoted an anonymous insider last week saying that Chung “has confided to associates that she is distressed that she might have inadvertently been involved in moving or storing classified material at the center, planting the seeds of the current uproar.” The fact that the loyal Chung was personally poached by Hunter Biden in 2012 to work for his father in the VP’s office apparently counts for nothing when it comes to offloading blame from the president.

          That’s why Biden looked like a cornered rat in California last week (with aspiring heir Gavin Newsom leering over his shoulder) and lied through his teeth.

          First, he snapped at a reporter who asked about the scandal and then dismissed the question as “a handful of documents were filed in the wrong place.”

          Then he effectively issued a warning to Garland. President Biden claimed that he has "no regrets" over his handling of classified documents.

          “I think you’re gonna find there’s nothing there,” he told reporters. “I have no regrets … There’s no there there.”

          BIDEN CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS Will ‘no regrets’ be Biden’s epitaph as the classified docs pile up?


          The no-there-there defense may have worked for Biden back in the 2020 campaign, when he repeatedly claimed to know nothing about his son’s overseas business dealings, and when the mythology of “Honest Joe” hadn’t collapsed, but no more. Too much evidence has emerged from Hunter’s laptop, from Hunter’s former business partners, from the “Twitter files” and from FBI whistleblowers alleging a cover-up of staggering proportions.

          The first tranche of at least 10 classified documents reportedly was found in the fall at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania, and were kept secret by the White House until after the midterm elections. They were dated between 2013 and 2016 and included US intelligence memos and briefing materials on Ukraine, Iran and the United Kingdom, according to CNN. Ties to Hunter portfolio


          This is the thread that links the president to the long-running Delaware federal investigation into his son’s foreign business dealings.

          That three-year period corresponds to the most frenetic influence-peddling activity overseas by his son Hunter and brother Jim Biden, who made millions of dollars from shady interests in Ukraine, China, Russia and elsewhere.

          How much more valuable their product would be if they had access to classified documents? Classified documents were found in Biden's garage near his Corvette.

Hunter Biden had access to the house and the garage with the documents. The Washington Free Beacon

          Their activity is documented in the Hunter laptop, in financial documents held by the Treasury, and in testimony from Hunter’s former business partner Tony Bobulinski, who said Joe was the “big guy” slated to get 10% from a particularly lucrative Chinese deal.

          Hunter traveled on Air Force 2 with his father to do private business during that period, including to China in December 2013. He organized the infamous Cafe Milano dinner for Joe to meet his business partners from Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan in April 2015.

          After his separation from his wife in July 2015, Hunter lived off and on at his father’s Delaware mansion and listed it as his residence on official documents. He was photographed in 2017 driving his father’s Corvette, which was housed in the very garage where classified documents have been found.

          Hunter also had free rein in his dad’s White House office, and his privileged access meant his name never showed up on visitor logs. For instance, he took the infamous photo of his then-“best friend in business,” Devon Archer, with his father in the VP’s office in April 2014, shortly before the pair joined the board of the corrupt Ukrainian oil company Burisma, which paid Hunter $83,000 a month. That photo ended up briefly on the Burisma website before being taken down on the instructions of a White House lawyer. Hunter Biden emailed his business partner Devon Archer in 2014 about Ukrainian politics and “my guys upcoming travels” — shortly before his father made a trip to Ukraine as Vice President.

Alec Tabak

          One striking email during this period stands out. It was from Hunter to Archer on April 13, 2014, a week before Joe Biden visited Ukraine to meet then-Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and refers to “my guys upcoming travels.”

          For Hunter, it was an uncharacteristically lengthy email, listing 22 points about Ukraine’s political situation, with detailed information about the upcoming election and predicting an escalation of Russia’s “destabilization campaign, which could lead to a full-scale takeover of the eastern region, most critically Donetsk. Get Miranda's latest take


          “The strategic value is to create a land bridge for RU to Crimea. That won’t directly affect Burisma holdings but it will limit future UK exploration and utilization of offshore opportunities in particular,” Hunter wrote.

          “It will also result in further destabilization of UK nationally and for whatever govt is in power. And the US will respond with even stronger sanctions. Those sanctions will threaten the tenuous support of the EU which does not have the political will to incur steep energy price increases.”

          In point 22, Hunter instructed Archer to buy a “burner phone,” presumably to keep their conversations private. “Buy a cell phone from a 7/11 or CVS tmrw and ill do the same.”

          It’s a prescient and very well-informed email, unlike anything else Hunter wrote in the nine years covered in the laptop, and it has the distinct flavor of an official briefing, perhaps even a classified one. The four latest batches


          The last four tranches of classified documents were discovered in President Biden’s Delaware mansion during four separate searches — between Dec. 20 and Friday.


          While there is no indication of the subject matter, Biden’s personal attorney Bob Bauer issued a statement Saturday evening saying the DOJ search the previous day had discovered “six items consisting of documents with classification markings and surrounding materials, some of which were from the President’s service in the Senate and some of which were from his tenure as Vice President. DOJ also took for further review personally handwritten notes from the vice-presidential years.” A photograph of a box in Biden's Delaware home labeled "Important Docs" was found in Hunter Biden's laptop. A photograph of a box in Biden’s Delaware home labeled “Important Docs” was found in Hunter Biden’s laptop.

          Now the country faces the historic spectacle of a sitting president and a former president, Donald Trump, both facing special counsel investigations over alleged improper retention of classified records.

          Biden hasn’t faced the FBI raid and leaking abuses that his predecessor endured, but it’s the same crime and, in Biden’s case, there is a hell of a lot of there there.

          If special counsel Robert Hur does his job properly, he will be comparing notes with Delaware US Attorney David Weiss, who has been investigating Hunter since 2018.

          Accountability is coming for Joe Biden, and no amount of dark money groups leaking false narratives to the media will save him.


          An astonishing fifth trove of classified documents was discovered in the president’s Delaware mansion Friday, not by his own lawyers this time, but during a search by the Department of Justice.

                  The Genesis of the Revelation of Biden’s Classified Document Crimes Is “the Hunter Laptop” – Kash Patel

                  By Joe Hoft
                  Published January 26, 2023 at 11:30am



                  Kash Patel shared in an op-ed yesterday that the genesis of revelation of Biden’s classified document crimes is the Hunter Biden laptop.

                  In 2022, we first approached the topic of Presidential records when President Trump’s home was raided in an unnecessary, unprecedented, and unlawful action by the corrupt FBI. We soon found out that the President had the ultimate right to take whatever records he wished upon leaving the White House. This was well defined in the Presidential Records Act. He did nothing wrong.



                  Then early this month the corrupt DOJ announced that they had found classified top-secret files in Biden’s possession that were illegally in his possession for years since he was Vice President. VP Biden did not have the rights provided to the President when he obtained these documents and therefore they attorney Mike Davis claimed they were stolen.



                  So why was the revelation of the classified documents in Biden’s possession, some of which were top-secret, ever reported?

                  Is it because Biden is on his way out? Is it a Deep State ploy to remove idle-minded Biden from the White House before the 2024 election gets into full gear?

                  This doesn’t make sense because the corrupt and criminal actors in the Democrat Party and their allies in the media and Deep State aren’t about to eat their own. So why is it these documents ever came to light?

                  Kash Patel believes the answer is in the Hunter Biden laptop.

                  In an op-ed yesterday at the Daily Caller, Patel reports:
                  I worked on numerous national security cases and as the former Deputy Director of National Intelligence and Federal prosecutor, it is clear that the Biden matter is at the intersection of these two worlds.

                  Mishandling classified information is a federal crime, period. One of the most concerning revelations in the wake of this scandal is that these classified documents have been on the move in the wild for years. Each person that moved them, each place they were stored is another separate crime.

                  Basic investigatory steps such as the issuance of search warrants for every location Biden and Hunter ever touched, have been jettisoned without legal cause. By doing so, Garland and Wray seek to uphold their traditions and principles of government corruption.

                  Why should anyone care about any of this? We have now learned these classified documents have been found at many locations and span back decades of intelligence matters.

                  Whether it is a locked garage or the Biden Penn Center, or his cereal closet — none of these locations were authorized to store classified information. In the coming days, how many other locations are we going to learn of and who had access? I predict many more.

                  The question of how they were moved is still a mystery. Are we to believe the chief librarians at NARA actually initiated this investigation? The answers to these questions expose its genesis: Hunter Biden’s laptop.

                  Hunter Biden’s proximity and potential access to an array of classified material should concern every single American. Political crime is the Biden family business. Covering up those crimes, well that has been the business of the current DOJ and FBI, along with the media.

                  TGP reported on the connections on Hunter’s laptop to classified information ultimately that may have been shared in Ukraine.




                  Patel concludes:
                  This investigation into the handling of these classified documents did not begin in November 2022. The timing of the documents is no coincidence. This scandal was perfectly timed and flawlessly revealed with the assistance of the corrupt media.


                  Kash Patel shared in an op-ed yesterday that the genesis of the revelation of Biden’s classified document crimes is the Hunter Biden laptop.  In 2022, we first approached the topic of Presidential records when President Trump’s home was raided in an unnecessary, unprecedented, and unlawful action by the corrupt FBI.  We soon found out that…

                    More Info on What Was Seized by the FBI at Biden's Home, and It May Help Do Him In

                    There’s an important aspect of the Joe Biden classified documents scandal that may help do him in if the powers that be take this case at all seriously.

                    Media is now reporting that it wasn’t only the classified documents that the authorities seized from Biden’s home, but they also seized some of the handwritten notebooks that he kept during the time that he was president.

                    Why is this so important? While the notebooks may not themselves have been “classified,” if he took the classified documents and then wrote about the sensitive information in the notebooks, that means the notebooks are containing that sensitive material too.
                    The notebooks were seized because Biden’s writings on some of the pages relate to his official business as vice president, including details of his diplomatic engagements during the Obama administration, and may reference classified information, this person said. They said the notebooks do not have classified markings on them, but some of the handwritten notes inside of them could be considered as such given their sensitive content.

                    Other pages in the notebooks, while they may not contain potentially classified information, could still be considered government property under the Presidential Records Act because they pertain to official business Biden conducted as vice president, the person familiar with the investigation said. [….]

                    Bauer’s spokesperson on Friday declined to comment when asked whether Biden knew the notebooks were packed in boxes that left with him at the end of the Obama administration, if he’s accessed them since leaving the vice presidency and whether he thought the notebooks were his personal property.

                    There are a lot of notebooks, described as a “large” collection. So that creates another question where they may have to make an assessment of what information might be in there that could be sensitive and why Biden was writing that information down if it was sensitive. That suggests again that he did not take classified documents “seriously,” as his team keeps insisting. You shouldn’t be trying to copy down classified information.

                    Plus, there’s another problem: if he has notes from classified documents they discovered at his home, then he’s sort of blown that whole “I was surprised” tactic. You’re not surprised if you’ve taken notes on the information and the documents are in your home. Some have speculated that some of the documents taken may relate to either the book he was writing. That could again show that wasn’t an accident, the documents were taken deliberately. The biggest problem would be in any of the classified documents and notes related to the Biden family’s foreign business dealings. Then that could be regarded as a cover-up and further potential crime.

                    The FBI searched his home for at least 12 hours last week. It’s not clear yet if they’ve searched the Penn Biden Center office (where other documents were found) or his Rehoboth Beach home. Biden refused to answer that question when asked by reporters at the end of this week. There have also been calls to search his Senate records that are being held at the University of Delaware since among the classified documents found at Biden’s home were some from his Senate days.​

Biden refused to answer that question when asked by reporters at the end of this week. There have also been calls to search his Senate records that are being held at the University of Delaware since among the classified documents found at Biden’s home were some from his Senate days.​

                              Smells Like a Cover-Up: NARA Was Stopped From Telling Public About Biden Classified Docs Find

                              I previously reported how the Justice Department and the Biden White House had a “shared understanding” that the finding of the Biden classified documents was going to be kept under wraps.

                              Translation: That sounds a lot like a cover-up to me. It should have been incumbent on the White House to be straightforward with it before the election. But instead, they hid the news and didn’t come out with any information until they were busted on the issue by CBS.

                              But what about the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), which was informed about the first find at the Penn Biden Center by November 3?

                              They were vocal about President Donald Trump and wrote numerous press releases about the matter. Why weren’t they talking about Joe Biden’s classified documents and why weren’t they complying with the House Oversight Committee’s requests for documents?

                              Let’s talk more cover-up because what the Republicans just found out is pretty bad.

                              According to the Chair of the House Oversight Committee, James Comer (R-KY), NARA was stopped from issuing a prepared press release about the discovery of the classified documents. NARA general counsel Gary Stern told the Committee during a long transcribed interview that he wasn’t able to tell them who ordered them not to release a statement.
                              “So we asked the general counsel, why were there no press releases sent on Joe Biden once it was determined that he had classified documents in his possession?

                              “And the counsel said that he did do press releases, but he was ordered and told they couldn’t be published.

                              “So — we did ask who gave him the orders and he said, I can’t tell you that. But there are only two people that could have given him those orders, and that’s either the Department of Justice with Merrick Garland or the White House with Joe Biden.

                              “So it shows right there that this Department of Justice and this White House is interfering with this and treating Donald Trump very differently than they’re treating Joe Biden.”

                              Comer said there were “pages and pages of press releases and information about the FBI raid into Mar-a-Lago and Donald Trump’s possession of classified documents,” Mr. Comer said. “But there’s nothing on the website about Joe Biden.”

                              So that means the Biden team — either the DOJ or the White House — gave the order and prevented the American people from knowing about it before the election. Why is Stern unable to tell them now? That’s nonsense. They’re Oversight — he’s not compromising any investigation by telling them that. He needs to provide that answer. This not only screams cover-up but the double standard between this and how they dealt with the Trump case is glaring. Isn’t the Trump case still going on? Why is it alright to have all those press releases out there about his case, but none about Biden?

                              Comer also said that NARA wasn’t preventing the White House from talking or being transparent about the documents. “So, it’s not the National Archives, it’s the Department of Justice. It is Merrick Garland’s Department of Justice,” Comer said. Let me disagree with Comer just a little — or it’s Biden and/or his team telling the DOJ what to do.

                              We’ve already seen it isn’t just the DOJ but the Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines saying they can’t provide the classified documents to Congress to assess the damage to national security. The DOJ doesn’t control the DNI, so this is not just the DOJ. The DNI said they couldn’t tell the Senate Intelligence Committee about the documents until the special counsel investigations were concluded. Senators on the Committee on both sides of the aisle said that was unsatisfactory because it doesn’t allow them to do their job. Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA) and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), the Chair and Vice Chair of the Committee said they could threaten the intel community’s money if they continued to hold back the documents. The DOJ has also stiff-armed other House efforts to get information on the documents, claiming it could hamper the investigations.

                              Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) tried to spin the response, saying they had to be conscious of the integrity of the investigations. “Any implication that the National Archives is not cooperating with the Committee’s investigation seems utterly false and unfair,” he argued.

                              But that didn’t stop them from putting out releases about Trump. So sorry, that doesn’t fly as an excuse.​
