Ok this is just plain disturbing. With all the Wuhan Coronavirus stuff happening this has to be more than a coincidence.
Chemistry Department Head Charles Lieber was paid directly by the Wuhan Institute of Technology.
One of the Chinese Nationals attempted to smuggle 21 vials of Biological Material onto the flight.
Can't make this stuff up!

If they wanted to topple our Government, wouldn't they have started the Virus spread Here First? I dunno, but I agree with You in that My Conspirital Mind has kicked into OverDrive!

Ye is in China and won't come back of course, she is a LT in the Peoples Liberation Army, she was snooping on Military websites and going through sensitive data on critical research, she is a real deal spy and got away scott free, the upside is, she is identifiable and can't come back.
Zheng on the other hand has been detained here in the States, so one fishy caught.
As for the Professor, give him the chair.
Under Trump, the initiative to capture these criminals is priority.
Zheng tried to smuggle vials of specimens out of the country in a sock packed in his suitcase, according to the Boston Globe.
Zheng’s arrest comes shortly after the National Institutes of Health and the FBI have begun launching investigations into Chinese scientists and researchers who have purportedly stolen research from the United States for the Chinese government.
the school had formed two new oversight committees in response to NIH inquiries into potential “academic espionage” by faculty members at American universities. One of the Harvard committees is tasked with reviewing sensitive research projects; the other is examining Faculty of Arts and Sciences policies to ensure the school complies with guidelines
Though Zheng stated that no one else was aware of the incident, he told authorities that he replicated 11 vials based on Zhang Tao’s research at Beth Israel over a period of two to three months, per the affidavit. Eventually, he told officers he planned to take the vials to his lab at Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hospital and publish a paper in his name
The precise contents of the vials that CBP found in Zheng’s bag remain unknown
Ye applied for a J-1 visa application to conduct research at the Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biomedical Engineering Center of Polymer Studies at Boston University.
Supervisors in China instructed Ye to conduct research, assess U.S. military websites and send U.S. documents to China.
Ye is accused of lying to investigators about her activities. Devices seized from Ye showed she accessed U.S. military websites, researched U.S. military projects and compiled information for the PLA on two U.S. citizens with expertise in robotics and computer science
Ye used “WeChat” to talk to co-conspirators. During one conversation there was a discussion about a research paper focused on a “risk assessment model designed to assist the PLA in deciphering data for military applications,” authorities said.
Other conversations via “WeChat” involved Ye sending links about U.S. military’s surface force strategy.

Not even the tip of the iceberg. China has "students" and "workers" in just about every county in the world. Propriety properties and data flow into China on a daily basis and has been going on for years.
