Billionaire Dem donor flew top Biden official to secret ritzy retreat on private jet
- June 23, 2023
EXCLUSIVE: Eric Schmidt, the billionaire former Google CEO and longtime Democratic donor, flew President Biden’s former top science adviser Eric Lander to a ritzy retreat in Montana during his tenure at the White House, emails reviewed by Fox News Digital reveal.
PPT Director Michael Chamberlain expressed concern about Lander’s decision to go on the trip.
“Inappropriately taking private or charter flights for travel has been the undoing of more than one high-ranking official in the Executive Branch,” Chamberlain told Fox News Digital. “The personnel and resources that have flowed into OSTP from a handful of wealthy, powerful individuals and organizations should give the American public pause to consider whether the factors driving that generosity may not be altogether altruistic.”
“The Biden administration has made a very public commitment to putting science above politics and has talked a lot about adherence to its scientific integrity policies,” Chamberlain continued. “The public remains skeptical, and this incident does nothing to quell that skepticism.”
