Congress vows to throw the book at Harvard, MIT and UPenn with ‘full force of subpoena power’ after shameful anti-Semitism hearing where college presidents gave ‘pathetic and morally bankrupt testimony’

Date:

  • The House Education and the Workforce Committee will probe the elite schools with the ‘full force of subpoena power’ 
  • Since Hamas ‘ brutal attack on innocent Israeli civilians on October 7, Harvard, MIT, and Penn’s campuses have been flooded with anti-Israel protests 

Congress has launched an investigation into Harvard University, MIT, and the University of Pennsylvania following their presidents’ failure to condemn students calling for a Jewish genocide. 

The House Education and the Workforce Committee will probe the elite schools with the ‘full force of subpoena power,’ after presidents Claudine Gay, Sally Kornbluth, and Liz Magill’s astonishing words and actions this week.

The trio all agreed that reprimanding students who call for a Jewish genocide was not paramount – but instead, they said the blatant antisemitism is ‘context’ specific. 

Since Hamas’ brutal attack on innocent Israeli civilians on October 7, Harvard, MIT, and Penn’s campuses have been flooded with unregulated anti-Israel protests.

Penn’s Magill, a lawyer by trade, even smirked and smiled as she refused to categorize calls for genocide as harassment or a breach of the school’s code of conduct in front of Congress on Tuesday. 

Rep. Elise Stefanik, who quizzed the three leaders, has slammed the presidents as morally bankrupt – and swore to hold the schools accountable.

She said on Thursday: ‘After this week’s pathetic and morally bankrupt testimony by university presidents when answering my questions, the Education and Workforce Committee is launching an official Congressional investigation with the full force of subpoena power into Penn, MIT, & Harvard and others.

‘We will use our full Congressional authority to hold these schools accountable for their failure on the global stage.’

During the five-hour hearing, Gay, Magill and Kornbluth were questioned over their response to antisemitism on their campuses.

Stefanik demanded the leaders outline whether student calls for ‘intifada’ or ‘the genocide of Jews’ violate their codes of conduct on bullying or harassment. 

All three refused to class the bloodthirsty, antisemitic slogans as harassment.

They instead said they are committed to preserving free speech on campus. 

Gay, Magill and Kornbluth were all heralded for their diversity and inclusion when they became presidents at their respective institutional helms. 

Now, all three university presidents are facing fierce calls for their immediate resignations – from students, donors, politicians, and alumni alike. 

Their sensational failure to condemn genocidal calls against Jews – and protect students against antisemitism – will now be disciplined at the highest level.
