The DOE has begun an investigation into colleges and universities that have taken money from state sponsors of terrorism. Some have even hidden the money they have received, obviously knowing that they shouldn’t be accepting it.
Two of the universities being investigated are Georgetown and Texas A&M, who has also taken money from Chinese government related Huawei, to a Chinese propaganda outfit known as Confucius Institute. Both universities will be responsible for the costs of the DOJ investigation and they have received letters notifying them of that.
We are not talking about small sums of money. They have received hundreds of millions of dollars and you know those countries expected some kind of return on their money.
President Donald Trump is scheduled to meet with Qatar’s ruler Tuesday as the U.S. Department of Education is investigating two American universities over their ties to the Middle Eastern nation and to determine what administrators did to ensure they didn’t take money linked to terrorism.
The schools, Georgetown and Texas A&M universities, are also connected to the suspected Chinese espionage firm Huawei, to a Chinese propaganda outfit known as Confucius Institute.
The Education Department fired off tough letters to the presidents of both universities, saying “whenever it appears an institution has failed to comply with the law, the Secretary of Education may request the Attorney General commence an enforcement action to compel compliance and to recover the full costs to the United States of obtaining compliance, including all associated costs of investigation and enforcement.”
“To meet our statutory duty, the Department has opened an administrative investigation of your institution and requests production of these records within thirty days,” the June 13 letters continued.
