From NY Post article from Sept 2016 (NY Post = murdoch, yes, but also sometimes, occasionally, they have some #GoodJournalism)
"Last year, she was also charged with helping an unidentified Chinese national, who is tied to billionaire Ng Lap Seng, flee the US amid an FBI probe."
The whole death-by-barbell thing is weird, right? Given yknow the Transnational Organized Crime context of John Ashe's death.
This is just one of the major corruption cases @PreetBharara was working on.
It's. All. Connected.
All of it.
Ying Lin ↔️ Ng Lap Seng ↔️Sheldon Adelson
From todays announcement of Ying Lin's guilty plea:
"“This case is a stark example of the Chinese government using the employees of Chinese companies doing business here to engage in illegal activity,” said Assistant Attorney General Demers. “Covertly doing the Chinese ...
...military’s bidding on U.S. soil is a crime, and Lin and the Chinese military took advantage of a commercial enterprise to evade legitimate U.S. government oversight.”"
Always with the tobacco and the booze and the tech...
"In exchange for her illegal acts, Lin received benefits from the PRC Mission and PRC Consulate in New York, including tax-exempt purchases of liquor, cigarettes and electronic devices worth tens of thousands of dollars, ...
...and free contracting work at her two residences in Queens, by PRC construction workers who were permitted under the terms of their visas to work only on PRC government facilities."
Do note the "free contracting work at her two residences in Queens by PRC construction workers."
Why note that?
Because it's most likely connected to this:
Note that the Dan Zhong case was also in EDNY, with US Attorney Donoghue.
So anyways, we be rolling up a shit ton of Chinese spies & spy COLLUDERS at the moment, I wonder how @ElaineChao feels about that, given, y'know, she called the Cox Report on Chinese espionage "racist" back in the day.
