Steve Bannon teams up with Guo Wengui to throw down the gauntlet… against the Chinese government:
Former chief strategist for US President Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, has lent his support to exiled Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui in a campaign to investigate China’s ruling elite, the two announced at a press conference in New York on Tuesday.
Bannon introduced the “Rule of Law Fund” which aims to investigate wrongdoing, including the alleged involvement of Chinese officials in the death and disappearance of Chinese individuals. Bannon said he would chair and oversee operations of the initiative. […]
Guo gave a presentation alongside Bannon, and has pledged to back the fund with US$100 million and formally request that the FBI and relevant law enforcement authorities review “voluminous investigative material.”
I can only assume that Bannon understands what he is up against here. Guo, the fugitive real estate tycoon who was visited in his Manhattan penthouse by Chinese security agents last year, has a bit more experience facing off against Beijing.
Among the cases that Guo/Bannon plan to investigate is the death of HNA Group co-founder Wang Jian in France after apparently falling from a wall.
