National Pulse reported on May 13 that the former chief counsel of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) was a visiting professor at the Communist Party-run Peking University. The ACLU is a left-wing legal advocacy group, and the president of Peking University was a member of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Chinese Communist Party’s Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, an undisclosed intelligence officer, and later served as the Communist Party’s Undersecretary of Education.
American students who graduate from Peking University are questioned by the FBI upon their return to the United States to see if they have been “co-opted by the CCP’s espionage activities.
Despite these troubles, Mark Rosenbaum, formerly of the American Civil Liberties Union, has been teaching at Peking University’s School of International Law for more than a decade. Rosenbaum used to be the chief counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Foundation of Southern California.
While the ACLU claims to “defend and preserve” the “individual rights and liberties” of all Americans, the organization has been engaged in left-wing, often anti-Trump causes. The group has sued Trump over his travel ban and border wall construction, and even launched an ad campaign against Justice Kavanaugh, all while the organization’s lead attorney was openly working with the Chinese Communist Party.
In addition to lecturing, Rosenbaum, who serves on the ACLU for 40, leads the Public Interest Advocacy Clinic at BYU.
Rosenbaum’s courses at BYU include Equal Protection Law and First Amendment Law. Rosenbaum has also served on the advisory board of Peking University’s Transnational Law Review Journal.
