Guo Wengui (Miles Kwok), who is being sought by the Chinese government in a bid to silence his disclosures of high-level corruption and intelligence activity, Guo has unloaded a barrage of allegations of corruption by people in the highest levels of China’s ruling Communist Party, which include claims that the party’s own head of anticorruption activities, Wang Qishan, has unclean hands.
Guo claims that Wang’s family secretly controls one of the largest conglomerates in China, the New York Times has reported. Guo disclosed that he was imprisoned in China after the 1989 pro-democracy protests in Tiananmen Square and spent 22 months in prison. Chinese police also shot his brother, who later died.

Guo Wengui sits in self-imposed exile in a $68 million apartment overlooking Central Park. The billionaire Chinese property tycoon has been waging a media war against his homeland’s government. Guo says he’s trying to stamp out corruption and graft, but China accuses him of the very same thing.
Since January, Guo has taken to YouTube and Twitter making corruption allegations against top Chinese officials. Some of them have been disproven, some can’t be proven, but some have turned out to be accurate. Guo cites the retirement of China’s anti-corruption czar, Wang Qishan, as his most recent victory. Guo alleged Wang and his family made millions in mysterious business dealings. Wang did not respond to the allegations and was never investigated nor charged.
China issued an arrest warrant for Guo but does not have an extradition treaty with the U.S., which has shown no interest in detaining him. Guo, for his part, is hoping the U.S. will grant him asylum and says he can be of use to the Trump Administration. The White House hasn’t commented on Guo’s case but his position as a dissident who may have access to insider information may make him a useful bargaining chip.
