A government ethics watchdog group, Protect the Public’s Trust (PPT), announced they are investigating Christopher Frey, the Deputy Assistant Administrator for Science Policy at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), claiming he still has a working relationship with the Chinese government.
According to PPT, Frey, who’s now a high-level political appointee, while working at the EPA, has “insisted on maintaining his adjunct faculty position with an instrument of the Chinese government.” The watchdog unearthed the information from heavily redacted documents that were requested and obtained by PPT from the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
The Director of Protect the Public’s Trust, Michael Chamberlain, said in a statement that “The American public needs answers to a number of legal, Constitutional and national security questions regarding the decision of EPA to allow Dr. Frey to continue a relationship with an arm of the Chinese government.”
