US: Lawmakers Demand Universities Produce All Foreign Donation Records

Republican lawmakers have demanded that the nation’s top universities produce all records of donations received from foreign governments, after concerns have mounted over a growing national security threat tied to multi-million dollar gifts, according to the New York Post.

In a Monday letter to the presidents of six leading colleges — including Yale, Harvard and NYU, Reps. Jim Jordan (D-OH), Virginia Foxx (R-NC) and James Comer (R-KY) requested unredacted records of all gifts, contracts and agreements with foreign governments since January 2015.

The three lawmakers are the ranking members of the House Judiciary, Oversight and Reform, and House Education and Labor committees, respectively.
