SMH - your tax dollars at work, Hoosier voters.

This is the silly stuff that happens when you elect inexperienced populist candidates with no true agenda other than pandering to an uneducated and conspiracy-obsessed electorate.

Wish the AG's office had instead done something along the lines of this witch hunt back in the Mid Con days, focusing instead on Homer and Scott Drew's recruiting connections behind The Iron Curtain.

I'm not opposed to investigating China's ties to these institutes which have come under scrutiny for keeping tabs on Chinese nationals studying abroad. Canadian and Swedish universities were some of the first to begin investigations after human rights complaints.

But there have been egregious examples of injustice committed by US authorities as well...

The FBI accused him of spying for China. It ruined his life.

In April 2018, Anming Hu, a Chinese-Canadian associate professor at the University of Tennessee, received an unexpected visit from the FBI.

The agents wanted to know whether he’d been involved in a Chinese government “talent program,” which offered overseas researchers incentives to bring their work back to Chinese universities.

Not too long ago, American universities encouraged their academics to build ties with Chinese institutions by means including the talent programs, but the US government is now suspicious of these programs, seeing them as a spy recruitment tool that the Chinese government could use to steal sensitive technology. Hu told the agents he had not participated in any talent programs, and the agents left shortly afterwards. But a little less than two years later, they showed up again—this time to arrest him. They alleged that he had defrauded NASA, and therefore the US government, by purposely hiding his affiliations with a Chinese university.

Hu is one of dozens of scientists, mostly of Chinese descent, whom the US government has investigated over the years amid allegations that they were hiding their connections to China. Since 2018, such cases have been investigated under the “China Initiative,” a controversial multi-agency program that aims to detect, prosecute, and stop economic espionage linked to Beijing...

Exactly! We need more career politicians. You know, because that works so well and has for decades. 

Keep those commoners out and stick with the ruling class. They know how to get things done.
