SCOOP: Congress is demanding Yale, Harvard and NYU hand over all records of donations from foreign governments in the next week, calling it a “national security threat” as they pocket billions from China, Iran and Russia

WASHINGTON — Congress wrote to the nation’s top universities on Monday demanding they hand over all records of donations they have accepted from foreign governments and rogue regimes, citing concerns that the multimillion-dollar gifts are a growing national security threat, The Post can reveal.

The letters obtained by The Post were sent to the presidents of six of the country’s leading colleges — including Harvard, NYU and Yale — after a Department of Education investigation this year found American universities had accepted $6.4 billion of hidden foreign donations.
