Several U.S. federal judges — including Supreme Court Justices — have served as Visiting Professors at the Chinese Communist Party-run Peking University. The efforts were funded by Chinese influence groups seeking to coerce “foreign actors to take actions or adopt positions supportive of” the Chinese government’s “preferred policies.” The Beijing-based university — headed by a former Chinese Communist Party spy agency leader — has seen its American graduates questioned by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) over fears of students getting “co-opted by Chinese espionage efforts.” Financial supporters of Peking University’s School of Transnational Law (STL) also include Thomson Reuters and the China-United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF) – the leading influence group in the Chinese Communist Party’s United Front propaganda outfit. According to the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, the United Front seeks to “neutralize sources of potential opposition to the policies and authority of its ruling Chinese Communist Party” and “influence foreign governments and other actors to take actions or adopt positions supportive of Beijing’s preferred policies.”
