Politico reports today: "the intelligence firm has claimed Guo’s side gave it a thumb drive loaded with sophisticated malware and that he sought information on people whose records were deemed sensitive by the U.S. government." politico.com/story/2019/06/… #China #CPDC #MilesKwok
"In a countersuit, Strategic Vision accused Guo and his representatives of a variety of troubling actions."
"The firm, which denied most of Eastern Profit’s allegations, claimed that when a representative of Guo’s provided a thumb drive with information on his chosen surveillance targets — Chinese officials whom Guo allegedly suspected of wrongdoing — . . ."
". . . the thumb drive turned out to be loaded with sophisticated malware. After the firm complained, it says it received three new thumb drives from Guo’s side, one of which also contained malware."
"Guo allegedly told the firm to communicate with his assistant, whom Guo 'oddly advised was a member of the Chinese Communist Party who also could not be trusted.'" #MilesKwok #CPDC
"A lawyer for Eastern Profit, Zachary Grendi, forwarded a request for comment to Daniel Podhaskie, a lawyer for Guo’s family office, who declined to comment." #MilesKwok #CPDC
"The circumstances of the lawsuit are just one of the many mysteries swirling around Guo. Many basic details of his biography, including his exact age, remain hazy...Guo appears to owe his rise in part to his relationship with a top official at China’s Ministry of State Security.
More from Politico: "Guo’s lawsuit against Strategic Vision could prove awkward for Washington’s small community of China hardliners." #MilesKwok #CPDC
"In March, several prominent China hawks launched Committee on the Present Danger, a new conservative advocacy group aimed at encouraging U.S. confrontation with China. The group, which includes former CIA director Jim Woolsey, has held events in New York and Washington..." #CPDC
"While members of the committee are united on China, they are divided on Guo. Both Waller, who is fighting Guo, and Bannon, the billionaire’s closest ally in the U.S., are members of the committee." #MilesKwok #CPDC #China
"The group also includes Gaffney, whose think tank employs Waller, and Han, who introduced Guo to Strategic Vision, only to have Guo allegedly turn around and badmouth Han as untrustworthy." #MilesKwok #CPDC
"Despite his aggressive campaign against Beijing, Guo remains a puzzle to China-watchers, with some supporting his asylum hopes and others remaining suspicious of his motives." #MilesKwok #CPDC
Politico: "A Times Magazine profile of Guo last year reported that some Chinese dissidents in New York suspect him of actually being a spy for Beijing." #MilesKwok #CCP #CPDC
"Others say he has already proven useful to the US. 'I’ve interviewed him, and he has sensitive knowledge of high-level Chinese Communist politics,' said MIchael Pillsbury, a fluent Mandarin speaker who spent decades as a China analyst in the federal government and now serves..."
Politico on Pillsbury, continued: "... as a top outside adviser to Trump on the country. 'I also don’t think he should be returned to China.'" #MilesKwok
Podhaskie is also the lawyer for #MilesKwok/#GuoWengui front companies. He would be an interesting lawyer to learn more about.
