(PatrioticPost.com)- Harvard Law professor Noah Feldman, who testified in the 2019 Trump impeachment trials at the request of the Democrats, was revealed last week to have met with a think tank connected to the Chinese Communist Party.
A previously unreported press release from 2016 describes how Feldman met the Shanghai Institutes of International Studies over four years ago, and met with senior figures from the CCP think tank.
“March 21: SIIS President Yang Jiemian meets with Prof. Noah Feldman of Harvard Law School. Dr. Shao Yuqun, Executive Director of the Center for American Studies also attend the meeting. The two sides talk about the relation between China’s domestic governance reform and its foreign policy as well as Sino-U.S. relations. Afterwards, Prof. Feldman shares ideas about the trend of international politics with SIIS young research fellows and graduate students,” the press release from the think tank reveals.
The think tank is known to have close links to the United Front Work Department of the Chinese Communist Party, which openly expresses its goal to “co-opt and neutralize sources of potential opposition to the policies and authority of its ruling Chinese Communist Party.” The department also says that it aims to “influence foreign governments and other actors to take actions or adopt positions supportive of Beijing’s preferred policies,” according to a report from the U.S.-China Security and Economic Review Commission.
How, exactly, can a Democrat testify in an impeachment hearing against former President Donald Trump without bias if that Democrat has met with a think tank with such strong links to an authoritarian regime that is notoriously opposed to the Trump agenda…and American interests?
In 2019, Feldman wrongly claimed that President Donald Trump abused the office of the presidency.
“On the basis of the testimony and the evidence before the House, President Trump has committed impeachable crimes and misdemeanors by corruptly abusing the office of the presidency,” he said.

No information about Feldman’s meeting with the think tank has been provided, nor has the left-wing academic admitted that it is any kind of conflict of interest.
But then again, he wouldn’t.
