But court documents and courtroom testimony showed that prosecutors brought fraud charges only after nearly two years of surveilling Hu and failing to find evidence that he was involved in a more serious crime related to spying or technology transfer. Hu had been upfront about his ties to a university in Beijing and followed University of Tennessee administrators’ advice when preparing documents for the grant. The fraud charges struck Chandler as flimsy.

She came away believing that the lead FBI agent in the case had pursued the investigation out of ambition rather than an interest in justice. She also believed that when faced with questions from federal agents, the administrators who had advised Hu on his grant applications caved and hastily sacrificed their employee. “This poor man just got sold down the river by his university and everyone else,” Chandler said.

“Mr. Hamilton has been employed by the EEOC for 20 years. In 2014, he was promoted to the position of media-tor. The record reflects that during the period of his em-ployment Mr. Hamilton had no disciplinary problems, with the exception of one day in 2016.
On that day, November 29, 2016, Mr. Hamilton was en-gaged in a mediation when he suddenly began to act errat-ically. Witnesses later testified that Mr. Hamilton began using racial epithets and engaging in physical violence to-ward the parties in the mediation, mistreated his co-work-ers, and refused to follow orders from management officials. Based on his conduct on that day, the EEOC pro-posed Mr. Hamilton’s removal. Following Mr. Hamilton’s response, the agency removed him from federal service on May 3, 2017. The union filed a grievance, which led to the union taking the case to arbitration.”
