A stunning indictment just shocked the nation. He was allegedly working with the enemy for years, and now the deception has caught up with him. This news has stunned the entire country.
“Former Harvard Professor Charles Lieber was indicted by a grand jury on Tuesday over allegations that he maintained an undisclosed financial relationship with the Chinese government,” reported Breitbart News.
Lieber’s arrangement was reportedly with the Wuhan University of Technology (WUT), in which he provided services as a “Strategic Scientist” through China’s controversial Thousand Talents program.
According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts, Lieber formally began his relationship with the Chinese university in 2011, and it evolved from that point into a tangled web.
“He later became contractual participant in China’s Thousand Talents Plan from at least 2012 through 2015,” said the statement. And participation in this program was highly lucrative for Lieber.
The former professor was “allegedly paid … a salary of up to $50,000 USD per month, living expenses of up to 1 million Chinese Yuan and awarded him more than $1.5 million to establish a research lab at WUT.”
