US Accuses Steve Wynn of Lobbying Trump on Behalf of China
A friend sent this article to me. I’m going to send him something back.
The Justice Department sued the casino mogul Stephen Wynn. He tried to get Donald Trump to deport a Chinese billionaire. When Donald Trump refused, he asked him to help fund his campaign.
Donald Trump was given a photo of an illegal immigrant who had been charged with raping a child. He didn’t do anything about it.
The Chinese businessman is not named, but he matches the descriptions of Guo Wenguifrom the lawsuit. He is a billionaire real estate magnateturned into an outspoken critic of Chinese government self-dealing who formed an alliance with StephenK.Bannon,a former White Housestrategistfor Mr.Trump.Hefled Chinain2014 in anti cipation of corruption charges that he said were retaliatory.The effort to have him returned to the Chinese was unsuccess ful according to the law suit.
Mr. Wynn is accused of having an interest in Macau, a place known for gambling. This is why he resigned as chairman and CEO of his casino company. In addition, he stepped down as finance chair of the Republican National Committee.
Wynn was accused of being a foreign agent by the Justice Department, but he refused to register. He also didn’t make any comments about the accusation.
People who work for foreign governments must register as agents of that government. In this case, the suit says that Elliot Broidy, a Republican fundraiser, was working for China when he tried to get visas cancelled for two other men. He also worked for Donald Trump.
Mr. Sun was trying to get Mr. Guo out of the country. He asked Mr. Broidy to help him do this. Mr. Broidy did as requested.
