On March 15, 2023, Miles Guo, a number one critic of the Chinese language Communist Celebration (CCP) and founding father of the New Federal State of China was arrested by federal authorities in New York. Over 100 FBI brokers raided his New York residence, handcuffed him, after which took him to courtroom for interrogation on allegations of fraud.
Suspicious circumstances surrounded the arrest; hours after Guo was taken into custody, with presumably solely FBI brokers inside his residence, a fireplace broke out and broken the property. How does this occur with out clarification with federal brokers on his property? Have been there paperwork they noticed match to destroy? Even days later, the origin of the fireplace is unknown, and its origins are getting extra suspicious by the second it stays unexplained.
The information of Guo’s arrest unfold like wildfire within the media and on social media, with many accounts affiliated with the American political left, and pro-CCP accounts, celebrating the arrest.
Backlash from Guo exposing the corruption inside the Chinese language authorities compelled him to flee to the U.S. from China in 2014 attributable to political persecution for exposing the CCP’s secrets and techniques. He’s remained a thorn within the CCP’s aspect since shifting to the U.S., they usually’ve gone into overdrive focusing on him.
Guo’s arraignment on March 15th was presided over by Decide Katherine H. Parker – and he or she made issues fascinating. Apparently anxious in regards to the Authorities withholding important info “favorable to an accused,” Decide Parker knowledgeable New York prosecutors that they’ve a authorized obligation, persevering with and affirmative, to confide in Mr. Guo any and all info which will assist impeach a Authorities-produced witness testimony and/or is in any other case favorable to Mr. Guo, together with their contacts with overseas governments or different contacts that could be conflicts of curiosity by any individuals concerned within the prosecution or investigation of Guo’s case.
It was a reminder they wanted.
In a second the place you might hear a pin drop, the prosecutors had been compelled to confess in courtroom in entrance of a federal choose that that they had “labored quite a bit with China” – the lawless regime with a vested curiosity in taking down Guo – throughout their investigation into him. This alone utterly obliterates any credibility the prosecution might declare to have.
Not content material with verbal warnings in courtroom, Decide Parker entered a written order on March 16th explicitly laying out the Authorities’s disclosure obligations and warned of significant penalties for noncompliance.
Decide Parker, recognized as non-partisan, has each purpose to suspect the prosecutor’s true intentions. Guo’s enemies in America being linked to the CCP have been a typical prevalence since he was compelled to flee CCP persecution. In 2017 then Senior Congressional Affairs Specialist on the DOJ George Higginbotham is reported to have secretly met with China’s Vice Minister of Public Safety to plot forcing Guo to return to China. Higginbotham additionally met with China’s ambassador within the Chinese language Embassy in D.C. to additional the identical shared aim.
In one other high-profile authorized motion Guo has turn out to be ensnared in, this one between the Pacific Alliance Asia Alternative Fund (PAX) and him, which resulted within the Feds seizing a yacht belonging to his daughter and fining him $134 million, all events had CCP ties.
PAX is a subsidiary of Pacific Alliance Group, one of many largest non-public funding companies based mostly in Hong Kong. The agency is headed by Shan Weijian, who has intensive ties to the CCP, and has written quite a few articles singing their reward – and denying their well-documented human rights abuses.
The Decide presiding over that case, Barry Ostrager, himself is tangled in an internet of monetary conflicts of curiosity to China. The whole thing of his profession earlier than being a choose was with Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, which has an intensive enterprise presence in China, and has represented dozens of CCP-linked purchasers. Simpson–Thatcher additionally lists “A Chinese language firm in an investigation by the DOJ into potential theft of commerce secrets and techniques” amongst their purchasers – which they current as one thing they’re pleased with.
Ostrager had recused himself from instances up to now the place he had monetary conflicts of curiosity – however not the one involving Guo.
The removing of Guo to China is a CCP precedence that extends to its highest management. When then-President Donald Trump met with President Xi Jinping in 2017, Xi personally requested Guo’s return to China, which Trump presumably refused, maybe figuring out that will be a dying sentence.
The arrest of Miles Guo is troubling for anybody who cares about judicial integrity and the rule of legislation. It’s a stark reminder of the CCP’s willingness to make use of any means crucial to keep up its grip on energy and silence its opposition, oftentimes by infiltrating the U.S. justice system.
We should always applaud Decide Parker for elevating suspicions the place promptly warranted. Certainly, the implications of the prosecutor’s admission – that they’re actively working with the CCP to prosecute Mr. Guo – are monumentally disastrous. Are there any Chinese language legislation enforcement officers on American soil serving to to prosecute Mr. Guo? What’s the extent of the U.S. Authorities’s collaboration with the CCP?
Keep in mind, the CCP is hell-bent on destroying America, and Mr. Guo simply occurs to be in the best way.
