Did Another Harvard University Professor Sell out the US to China?

A Harvard University professor now finds themselves in hot water with the law and you won’t believe what he has done. This man decided to hide his obvious connection with the Chinese and it has finally been brought to light. How he thought he was going to get away with this for as long as he did is beyond our comprehension.

He’s been receiving $50,000 per month from China and thought that no one would ever catch onto him! If this story sounds familiar to you, that is because Dr. Charles Lieber was recruited by the Chinese to participate in a specialized plan. The Thousand Talents Plan allows foreign experts to impart their wisdom at universities in China.

This all sounds well and good until you realize that it is illegal. Professors are prohibited from accepting grants of this nature. Federal agencies cannot accept grants from American universities while they are teaching overseas. Lieber allegedly concealed this connection as he was applying for grants from the National Institutes of Health.

Now, Anming Hu is in similar trouble. He works as an associate professor at the Knoxville flagship campus for the University of Tennessee. The department of mechanical, aerospace and biomedical engineering currently relies on him. Prosecutors are now looking to make him pay for the false statements that he stands accused of providing.

As it turns out, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration does not look kindly upon such things. He has been charged with three separate counts of wire fraud. Hu also stands accused of providing false statements when it comes to his professional relationship with the Beijing University of Technology in China.

NASA is not able to offer monetary grants to any professor with such relationships. Of course, Hu decided to omit this information during his discussions with them. The school asked for assurances that he was not working with the Chinese and Hu allegedly lied to them when he was questioned.

The resume that he submitted to the school when he applied for employment was also a lie. This would have been his chance to come clean and he omitted the information from his CV. His stint with the Beijing University of Technology’s Institute of Laser Engineering got left out as well.

The position should have been disclosed when he applied for tenure. He’s been working for the Tennessee university since 2015 and did not offer up the necessary information at any time. This is a bold move and it finally seems to have backfired on him. Lying like this is never a wise decision. We cannot believe his level of audacity.

Anming Hu, an associate professor in the department of mechanical, aerospace and biomedical engineering at the university’s flagship Knoxville campus, was charged with three counts of wire fraud and three counts of making false statements…

Prosecutors say Hu defrauded the National Aeronautics and Space Administration by failing to disclose the fact that he was also a professor at the Beijing University of Technology in China. Under federal law, NASA cannot fund or give grant money to Chinese-owned companies or universities.

According to the indictment, as the University of Tennessee last December was preparing a proposal on Hu’s behalf for a NASA-funded project, Hu provided false assurances to the school that he was not part of any business collaboration involving China.

He authored or co-authored a wide range of published researched papers that all list him as being an affiliate of the Chinese university. 12 patent applications that have been filed in China also list him. How on Earth did he think that this information would remain a secret forever? It is like he was trying to get caught.

Or maybe he allowed his arrogance to get the better of him? There are other professors who are getting arrested under similar circumstances so maybe the next educator will decide to make a better choice. Professors from Emory University and the University of Kansas have been arrested and are said to be facing the same type of charges.

It is easy to see why China would want to hire United States professors who are willing to share all of their expertise. What is harder to understand is why these professors would put their freedom at risk to do so. Why would they agree to involve themselves in something that could potentially go so badly for them?

They knew that they were intentionally deceiving organizations that would eventually get to the bottom of things and yet, that did not stop them. $50,000 per month is a fairly large incentive but it is going to be pretty hard to spend that money from behind bars. Were these professors simply desperate for cash or was there more to this? It is hard to say without knowing any of them on a personal level.

There is definitely a missing component here that we are not aware of and we look forward to learning more about these cases as they unfold. Professors who are willing to sell out the United States to work for Chinese universities are not going anywhere anytime soon. Let’s hope that the rest of them are eventually rooted out before they have a chance to cause any sort of long term issues for our country.


  1. Rule of Law or Rule of Lawyers? How can anyone, regardless of their relative position in this great nation known as the United States of America; how can the legal treatment of those like Manafort, Stone, Flynn and others be even considered when those like this professor, the Clintons, known and published corrupt FBI, DOJ and CIA personnel go free with only a “wink?”

  2. This is the problem when we import foreigners and put them in charge of sensitive projects. It appears that they have no allegiance to our country and most likely an ethic not consistent with ours.


  4. Your article repeatedly asks how anyone could have the audacity to think they could get away with things like this. Hmm. Well, how about the illegal largely Mexican immigrants who come here, file bogus tax returns, list over 10 kids (mostly at home in Mexico) as dependents, and not only get a huge tax refund but most of it comes from Child Credits free money, nothing that had been withheld. They fall in the same category. The reason is that the people “in charge” don’t give much of a damn. They’re more concerned with getting time on the golf course than investigating, some things fairly obvious, and investigate at even a basic level. You cite all the sources which listed this professor with affiliates, any one of which would have busted him. I would highly suggest that, before you start shelling out even $ 5,000/month, much less $ 50 K, you assign someone with a brain and work ethic to thoroughly investigate any possible connections that would be illegal. From what you wrote, most of the “connections” that would’ve disqualified him, were hiding “in plain sight”. It just took Administrative oversight and corresponding decisions and actions to put someone competent on it. But, then that isn’t usually all that forthcoming in a Federal Government Agency, now is it? After all, it ain’t YOUR money. It’s taxpayers.

  5. The Professors work where a Communist dictatorship more closely aligns with what they want here, but the Chi-Coms realize that financial and personal gain is the best motivators. Even Bernie has no intention of spreading his wealth.

  6. The liberal communist that have turned our education system into communist indoctrination centers. So I am not suprised that the communist there are giving everything they can to their communist handlers.

  7. enough of these people—–no more. everyone of the needs to be checked out if they are in a professional position and limit they access to anything that is of a spying nature. no more of our inner workings if they are it should be prison time for them.!!!!

  8. China had being full of spies in US different levels for at least 30 some yrs , I wouldn’t surprise is happening today to America as lot of Americans are so naively unable to scamming identify which’s & who’s are the reals enemy because DEMs liberal media’s rhetoric ties with Communist propaganda promoting openness for business exchanged for moneys greedy driven keys to everything’s everywhere’s has fueling across the country for decades really isn’t surprised to me , some customer of my we’d told they’re travels to China many times for business fun won’t telling the difference about China’s people in the countries who’s in favoriting of Chinese uncovered darkness sides looming flooded in their head refuses to recognize theirs evils devils tactics to US America wow ! because of business in China exchangeable making themes overwhelming wealthy (temporary) as targets short of knowledge about what Communist actual really are , so does long term effects dirt exposed hurting our owns suddenly can’t imagine if another Obama Clinton’s any of DEMs media’s Crooked in Power that Communism’s policies continued sweeping in our society it were be all over if theirs succeeds possibilities become underway slays to us for sure !
