Biden Center has Transparency Issues?

A watchdog is calling for transparency from the University of Pennsylvania’s Biden Center.

According to The Washington Free Beacon:

A good-government watchdog is calling on secretary of state nominee Antony Blinken to disclose any foreign-funding sources for the University of Pennsylvania’s Penn Biden Center, where Blinken served as director, as part of his Senate confirmation vetting process.

The National Legal and Policy Center (NPLC) is arguing that any foreign money that made its way into the Penn Biden Center could pose a conflict of interest for Blinken, who served as the center’s director from 2017 to 2019 and received a more than $79,000 salary, according to his financial-disclosure records. The watchdog group said the university also saw a significant spike in contributions from China after the Penn Biden Center opened in 2017, raising questions about whether the funding had any connection to the policy center.

While President-elect Joe Biden has vowed to tighten ethics standards for his incoming administration, the Penn Biden Center’s lack of financial candor raises questions about the Biden cabinet’s commitment to transparency as Blinken testifies before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Tuesday afternoon.

“The Penn Biden Center is the poster child for revolving-door conflicts of interest,” said Tom Anderson, director of the NPLC’s Government Integrity Project. “It’s time they disclose their donors and allow the American people the opportunity to evaluate whether any lines have been crossed.”

Reports indicated that the Center is funded entirely with university funds and does not engage in fundraising.

“Already” secretive? Biden’s whole campaign was secretive. He didn’t run on policy, but rather on the pandemic and on an appeal to emotion. Now the truth of his agenda will be coming out, in spite of the media’s effort to help him hide it, and people will start actually thinking about it and will not be so pleased.

Secretive? One has to actually know something before they can keep it a secret. Our new dictator can hardly read his teleprompter, and thinks he’s his wife. It’s his puppeteers that are pros at hiding, cheating and lying!
