Dan Bongino:

The Department of Justice (DOJ) released a statement Thursday saying that a “rheumatology professor and researcher with strong ties to China has been ordered held without bond,” on charges of grant fraud for not disclosing that he was involved in a scheme to use National Institute of Health (NIH) grants to develop China’s expertise in rheumatology and immunology, as well as for making false statements about maintaining employment in China while he remained employed at U.S. universities, including Ohio State University.

According to the DOJ statement, Song Guo Zheng was arrested back in May, after arriving in Alaska on a charter flight and preparing to board another charter flight to China. At the time of arrest, he was carrying three large bags, one small suitcase and a briefcase with two laptops, three cell phones, several USB drives, several silver bars, expired Chinese passports for his family, and deeds for property in China, along with other things. more
