State Department demands US think-tanks disclose foreign funding because of ‘China and Russia’

Pompeo has been one of the more outspoken Trump administration officials on the subject of China, arguing in July that Beijing is a threat to “our people and our prosperity” and that the “free world” has to “change Communist China” or be changed by it, going forward. Last year, he tried to expand the mission of NATO to the “current and potential long-term threat posed by the Chinese Communist Party.”

The State Department has likewise leveraged the baseless accusations of “collusion” leveled at the Trump administration by the media and Democrats to harden the US policy towards Moscow. 

Focusing on Beijing and Moscow in Tuesday’s announcement was “pretty hollow,” according to Sarah Margon from the foreign policy arm of George Soros’s Open Society Foundations, as it did not mention the well-documented funding of US think tanks and lobbyists coming from places such as Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, among others.

Indeed, a 30-page report compiled by the Center for International Policy and published in February lists a number of countries funding US think tanks. China is mentioned in three instances, while the UK, Qatar and the UAE feature prominently. Russia is not on the list at all.
