On Wednesday Joe Biden told reporters he was “a professor” at Penn after he left office in 2017.
This came after news broke that classified documents were found in a closet at the Penn Biden Center, linked to Joe Biden, in November before the 2022 election.
The Department of Justice, the same group that set up the Trump-Russia scam, are allegedly investigating.
Biden: “The four years after being vice president, I was a professor at Penn.”

Of course, this was a lie.
According to the RNC — This is at least the 17th time Biden has told this lie since he became president. Biden was never a “professor.” Biden and his associates raked in hundreds of thousands of dollars to essentially do nothing while millions in anonymously earmarked Chinese money flowed to the university.
Foreign contributions to Penn tripled in three years after the Biden Center was set up on campus.
The New York Post reported:
The Ivy League college raked in a total of $54.6 million from 2014 through June 2019 in donations from China, including $23.1 million in anonymous gifts starting in 2016, according to public records.
Most of the anonymous donations came after the university announced in February 2017 that it would create the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement. Joe Biden, whose term as vice president had just ended, was to lead the center and was also named a professor at the university.
The center, which is located in Washington, DC, opened its doors in February 2018. Antony Blinken, whom Biden named as secretary of state, briefly served as its managing director.
The Ivy League university received $15.8 million in anonymous Chinese gifts that year, including one eye-popping $14.5 million donation in May 2018, records show.
UPDATE: Secretary of State Tony Blinken was the managing director of the Penn Biden Center and helped advise American universities how to get multi-million dollar donations from China.
