BEIJING BENSON: Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson is currently obstructing efforts to investigate Michigan’s election results, has developed ties with Chinese state-run universities, and trained lawyers for the Chinese Communist Party…even delivering a lecture at Chinese Premier Xi Jinping’s alma mater.
Benson undertook the work aiding the Chinese Communist Party while serving as the Dean of Wayne State Law School in Detroit, Michigan.
Benson – who oversaw a state allegedly riddled with election fraud and told county clerks to “destroy certain election data and software” – visited China in June 2013 in an attempt to court students from Chinese Communist Party-run universities into studying at Wayne State University’s Law School.
Wayne State’s own website maintains the press release from 2013 which describes Benson’s efforts to link up with the Chinese Communist Party as “vigorous”:
“A growing number of students from China are expected to study at Wayne State University Law School in 2014 — a result of the school’s decision to offer a master’s degree in U.S. law and its vigorous outreach efforts to promote it.”
Benson wanted to provide individuals who could work in Chinese “government ministries involved in negotiations with the U.S.” with legal training from her Detroit-based institution:
“Wayne’s new master’s degree program in U.S. law is designed for outstanding law students from other countries. This will be an attractive program for students who seek to practice law in the United States, transnational law in their home countries, who may work in government ministries involved in negotiations with the United States, or who intend to work on advanced degrees and careers as scholars.”
Benson described the nearly week-long trip as “very productive,” and visited several Chinese law schools,
