Bannon Arrest Brings to Light the Nefarious Role of Guo Wengui

Aug. 23, 2020 (EIRNS)—When federal officers arrested Steve Bannon on the yacht of Chinese billionaire dissident, Guo Wengui, it has also led to greater curiosity—and scrutiny—of the role of Guo in a variety of operations, including a direct role in the Hong Kong riots. Guo fled China in 2014, fearful of being arrested for corruption. He came to the U.S. with claims that he knew where “all the secrets were hidden” regarding the Chinese Communist Party. His main target was Wang Qishan, whom President Xi Jinping appointed to head the anti-corruption campaign. Guo claims that he has numerous contacts with people in the Communist Party and even in the Standing Committee of the CCP, who are opposed to the Xi administration.

Guo made extensive use of Twitter, under the name Miles Kwok, (taking the name of “Miles,” no doubt, from Capt. Milton “Mary” Miles, a U.S. Navy captain in World War II, who was the right-hand man of Chiang Kai-shek). He also used the Chinese press to get out his message and in 2017 he held a press conference at the National Press Club, hosted by the Washington Times’ Bill Gertz. It is unclear when he linked up with Steven Bannon, but they have obviously been in cahoots for some years now, and Bannon was probably instrumental in helping build Guo’s GTV Media company. Both Bannon and Guo were active on the scene during the Hong Kong riots, in which a video shows Guo giving orders to the demonstrators and assuring them that he and Bannon were mobilizing support for them in Washington.

Although Guo said that he had nothing to do with Bannon’s scam regarding building the wall, and therefore is not himself under investigation for this, his other operations may well be under investigation. Guo has received some support from Chinese dissidents in the U.S., but many are skeptical of his claims and others shun him, fearing that he may be a P.R.C. agent!
