Armed with a Chinese press release translated on the fly via Google, federal agents falsely accused an internationally-renown welding technology expert at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville of being a spy and brought him to professional ruin.
FBI Agent Kujtim Sadiku admitted last week in an ongoing trial in Knoxville that federal agents:
  • Falsely accused former UTK associate professor Dr. Anming Hu of being a Chinese spy.
    [*]Falsely implicated him as an operative for the Chinese military in meetings with Hu’s bosses
    [*]Used false information to put Hu on the federal no-fly list.
    [*]Spurred U.S. customs agents to seize Hu’s computer and phone and spread word throughout the international research community that Hu was poison.
    [*]Used false information to justify putting a team of agents to spy on Hu and his son, a freshman at UTK, for nearly two years.
    [*]Used false information to press Hu to become a spy for the U.S. government.
Why?
“You wanted to find a Chinese spy in Knoxville,” defense attorney Phil Lomonaco offered as he cross-examined Sadiku on his tactics to secure a fraud indictment against Hu after the agency's economic espionage probe fell apart.
Sadiku responded, “My job is to find spies, yes.”
More than three years after Sadiku launched a national security investigation against Hu, the agent still hasn’t provided any proof that Hu is or was a spy.
He says he didn’t read nearly every document federal prosecutors are now relying on as proof Hu defrauded NASA. He says he doesn’t remember the contents of others.
“When was the last time Dr. Hu was in China?” Lomonaco asked Sadiku in U.S. District Court on Thursday.
Sadiku answered, “I don’t know.”
“You’ve been carrying around his passport … haven’t you?” Lomonaco asked. “You know you’re under oath, right?”
Sadiku replied, “I don’t remember the dates on it … I wouldn’t rely on that document.”
Lomonaco abruptly stopped and turned toward the agent, who was on the witness stand, then looked at jurors and smiled.
“You wouldn’t rely on his passport?” Lomonaco said. “Can we have it back?”
Sadiku kept quiet. Hu won’t get his passport back unless either U.S. District Judge Tom Varlan or a federal jury tosses out the three counts of wire fraud and making false statements Hu faces.
Hu explained how the FBI agent tried to build his case.
“(Sadiku) say, ‘Go (to an upcoming conference in China). I try to protect you … When you come back, come to see me and tell me who was with you and what they asked you to do,’” Hu testified Friday. “He said he wanted to protect me.”
At that point, Hu’s voice faltered. He looked at Sadiku, who was seated in the courtroom behind federal prosecutors.
“You just wanted to protect me, right?” Hu said. “That’s what you told me.”
Neither the U.S. Attorney’s office nor the FBI nor the University of Tennessee will talk about the false allegations while Hu’s trial is ongoing. All cited policies against commenting during ongoing cases.
Google and sweet talk
The U.S. Department of Justice publicly announced in 2018 a “China Initiative” — a directive to all federal agents to set their sights on ferreting out “economic” Chinese spies operating in America.
It didn’t take long for Chinese professors and researchers at American universities to become targets of that initiative. Hu isn’t the only Chinese-born researcher to be charged as a result of the initiative. There have been a handful rounded up on various federal charges.
Hu, though, is the first to stand trial as a target of the China Initiative, and he’s the first citizen in the nation to be accused under an obscure provision of the law that is meant to restrict NASA, not the researchers who do its work for pennies on the dollar, and never mentions universities in its prohibitions.
Sadiku insisted in testimony he didn’t know anything about the “China Initiative” when he decided to do what he called an “open source” search for information about Hu in March 2018. Open source, he conceded, is federal speak for a Google search.

“It was predicated on information Anming Hu was part of another government’s talent plan,” Sadiku told jurors.
Sadiku says he can’t remember who tipped him that Hu might be a spy via China’s Thousand Talents Program. The U.S. government has long held the program is China’s academic spy recruitment tool.
Using Google, Sadiku found a news release and flier written in Chinese that included Hu’s photograph. He used a feature of the Google app for a “rough translation,” of the document, the agent told jurors.
The document revealed Hu was awarded a short-term contract in 2012 under China’s Thousand Talents Program to teach students at the Beijing University of Technology and had an upcoming speaking event in China.
Sadiku formally launched an economic espionage probe at that point. He named it Operation Chelsea Dagger. He says he can’t remember why.
Hu, meanwhile, testified he had no idea he was a target of the FBI — until Sadiku and an agent from the U.S. Department of Energy knocked on his door at the University of Tennessee in April 2018.
“They startled me,” Hu testified Friday. “They say, ‘We FBI, we need to talk to you.’ They show me a lot of documents. They ask me if I know anyone else at (UT) who is a member of the talent program. They said, ‘You are so smart. You should be in the Thousand Talents Program. I say, I’m not that smart
The NASA restriction
Hu left China more than a decade ago to pursue a second doctorate in Canada. Testimony showed he moved his wife, children and relatives to Canada and became a naturalized citizen. His research and inventions in a welding technique known as “brazing” were gaining fame in academic, business and government circles.
UT recruited him to teach and continue his nanotechnology research in 2013, and he took the post. Hu told jurors Friday he had a one-hour training session on the stacks of disclosure forms UT faculty and staff are required to file each year.
That training included a Power Point about the so-called “NASA restriction” — an amendment to a military funding bill passed in 2011. A half dozen UT administrations have testified the Power Point was the only guidance its employees are given about how to comply with the NASA restriction.

It said UT will provide NASA with a “China Assurance letter” for any proposal for a grant submitted by faculty.
“The language indicates that we do not view our faculty, staff and students to be entities of China,” it read.
Hu disclosed his ties to Beijing University of Technology in at least two required forms at UT, testimony shows, and he disclosed them again in email exchanges with both UT officials and a NASA contractor. No one, testimony revealed, told Hu that he was barred from NASA work.
He went on to complete two NASA projects before federal agents came calling with handcuffs in February 2020.
Testimony: Agent lied to UT
Hu is specifically accused in the case on trial of plotting to “intentionally” defraud NASA by failing to list his Beijing University teaching work on a single annual form at UT. The form doesn’t ask professors to disclose ties with China or any other country, UT officials testified.
Instead, the form asks assistant professors such as Hu to list any work outside UT that earns them more than $10,000. Hu earned less than $2,000 annually from his work with Beijing University.
Federal prosecutor Matthew McKenzie on Thursday argued there is plenty of proof Hu left off the Beijing work from that single form to avoid the NASA restriction.
“The argument we’ll make is … he was involved with this Chinese university for years, and it was obvious he would have to disclose that,” McKenzie said.
Sadiku testified he never mentioned fraud or the form — a conflict of interest disclosure — when he confronted Hu in April 2018. The agent said he instead asked Hu if he was a member of the Thousand Talents Program.
“I interviewed him,” Sadiku said. “He told me he wasn’t (a member), so I believe that he wasn’t.”
Lomonaco pressed,” Do you have any evidence Anming Hu is employed by the Chinese government?”
“How do you define employment?” Sadiku countered.
The agent ultimately admitted he presented UT officials with a Power Point that labeled Hu as an operative for the Chinese military and never followed up to say it wasn’t true.
“Based on my summary translations, my reports and my outline, no, Hu wasn’t involved in the Chinese military,” Sadiku testified.

Lomonaco said, “This is a false statement you put on the (presentation to UT officials), isn’t it?”
“Can you repeat the question?” Sadiku replied before answering, “If you’re talking about the power points, I prepared those, yes.
Right now, Varlan holds Hu’s fate in his hands. He could rule Monday that prosecutors don’t have enough evidence to back up its fraud claims against Hu and toss the case. Or he could rule in the reserve, allowing the 12 East Tennesseans on this jury to decide.
But no matter what the judge or jury decides, Hu — so gifted in developing technology that NASA sought him out — will remain stripped of the UT professorship he prized.

The point is that they want people to know that anyone could be a fed; that resistance is literally futile, as you can trust nobody except family and even that is being proven to no longer be the case.
They'll deny it by omission of course, they'll never admit to tactics or personnel as part of operating procedure, but they definitely gain a lot from this being out on the open. It's actually more dangerous for them to NOT have the public understand their tactics. One of the reasons Islamic terror is so successful is because A) they're mostly racially based and brown, whereas most fbi agents or informers are white traitors and B) they're religious fundamentalist and any outsider who shows up and can't recite the Koran or very specific readings of their prophets and martyrs would certainly never be considered. We need a culture that is unapproachable and difficult. Most FBI agents probably know nothing of Christianity anymore which is why we need to turn to Christian fundemantaliam and learn it. Unfortunately Islam has the upper hand being Arabic is not an easy language to learn, specially for some retard fed.

Richard Spencer was out shilling for the FBI, I saw on Columbia Bugle's Twitter.

There are at least a dozen hardcore fednat white knights that have accounts on here that don't bother to come defend wignats anymore.

I think in general, far right gets the point about all this, maybe feels embarrassed about it. I don't blame them.

There's a Netflix show called "Spycraft," and it's about various spy organizations and what devices they use. At one point they started talking about Maria Butina, a Russian woman who was arrested in 2018 for being a "Russian Agent." The claims are spurious at best, and sound like a James Bond plot.
FBI counter-intelligence agents have arrested a 29-year-old Russian woman on charges she acted as a Kremlin agent while working over the past three years to build relationships in the upper ranks of the National Rifle Association.
How would this help Russia? By making Americans like guns more?...
Maria Butina, the cofounder of the mysterious Russian gun-rights group called “Right to Bear Arms” who recently graduated with a master’s degree from American University, “took steps to develop relationships with American politicians in order to establish private, or as she called them, ‘back channel’ lines of communication,” according to an affidavit attached to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Washington on Saturday.
So she had a Russian accent, admitted she was from Russia, if you looked up her name you'd probably find this information anyway. She was using her ass to further herself it would seem. Sounds like a regular career woman to me.
Torshin and Butina accompanied several NRA board members on a December 2015 visit to Moscow, and Torshin sat at a dinner table with Donald Trump Jr. at the the May 2016 National Rifle Association convention. He and Butina also attended the 2017 National Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C., where President Donald Trump was the keynote speaker.

Makes sense now, this was a flimsy attempt to make the Trump admin seem like Russian agents or under the influence of Russian agents. This also ties back into the conspiracy theory that the NRA and gun rights organizations are somehow Russian programs of mass violence or whatever to hurt black people and undermine our democracy. So basically FBI plans and executes acts of violence and it's the KGB's fault for supposedly supporting gun rights.
To think that a Russian woman with a Russian accent, name, and admits to being from Russia to literally everyone, is a Russian spy is idiotic, and they legit think we're all retarded to even report that to us and expect us to take it seriously.

Didn’t they keep that woman in isolation in jail for a super long time until she confessed? Seem to remember them putting off trial forever to make it happen as well.

Yep; they did. It was a complete dog-and-pony show cooked up by Wray to legitimize the Feds usurpation under the guise of those "evil ruskies".

FBI gave the retard arabs the munitions to blow up the trade towers In this first trade tower run through.

One of the less retarded taped the fbi conversations, Was played in court of maybe the blind sheik case?

Been awhile since I dived into 911 and FBI malfeasance.
Since weaver, branch davidians, gordon kahl. Ok, Anders strausmire, elohime city, all the fbi in white supremacist circles Etc.. you surely cant trust any FBI to do "regular Americans" police work.
Ever.

And as the ruling elites want, trust none, low trust chaotic society keeps the next Hitler out of the nationalism business

Never talk to feds or police, name rank and serial number, or vax cert chip scan , if that's easier for you.

It became a thing when the entrapment details of Ruby Ridge started spreading.
Then Clinton got in because everybody hated Bush and Ross Perot, unsurprisingly now, got death threats relayed by the FBI.
That when zog became ZOG.
I was too young to pay much attention but wasn’t it that if only one of those ran that Clinton would have lost?

Nothing as drastic as the 1912 Bull Moose/Roosevelt thing.
Looks like it by the numbers.
There was some hubub about cheating in populous states in edgy magazines at the time, which would make sense if you look at the electoral college, but Clinton ran right in the middle and charmed the media, who also conveniently overlooked all the weirdness in Arkansas prior to the Pres race.

That was another one of the things that changed my worldview.
I remember when it all happened, 15 years later when I got on the internet it was one of the earliest things I looked up.
I'll do you one better. I went to the bank and sent a money order to order the VHS tape Death and Taxes, I saw it advertised in Liberty Magazine.

Have you ever seen that TV movie they made about him? It was like a Lifetime movie, but iirc it was on a major network. I remember really enjoying it.

This simply isn’t true. Cops are more likely to shoot white people than black people. In absolute numbers, AND when adjusted for population and homicide rate.

The cops are not on our side.

People are so stupid.

How is it possible they wouldn't vote Perot by default, just because he was different?

Even if they didn't understand anything he was saying, they could at least see: "this guy is different than the other two guys by a lot."

In retrospect, I found the whole thing so sad I may not watch any of them. :(

Obsessive loyalty to Raegan and his legacy and to the Republican Party probably. Only been since Trump they don’t seem to worship the guy anymore.
