This is a story all Americans must learn—and that Congress must act upon—a story about the man who in 2017 warned us about the CCP virus, and who again in 2021 warned us about the coming Trump Indictment.
I write to advocate for someone born half a world away, who I once briefly met. I know him as Miles Guo; others know him as Guo Wengui or Ho Wan Kwok. I found him to be someone who radiates kindness and genuine concern for the liberties and happiness of others. Some have called him the “Trump of Beijing.”
Guo’s persecution is a symptom of a diseased DOJ, truly infected by a political “CCP Virus.” It is time to “stop the spread,” and that starts with a thorough investigation into the targeting of Guo.”
That first impression of Guo has been bolstered by studying deeply into the man’s life, as well as the claims and accusations of his enemies. Guo came to America to seek asylum, and to fight for the one country he still believes in: ours. In return, the country has stood by while our most corrupt sellouts have turned his American Dream into a nightmare.
It’s time we did something about it.
Those who know me will rate my assessment of Guo’s character highly because they know mine; others who read my carefully researched articles may be convinced as such. Guo is a man willing to sacrifice everything to stand up to the evil Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and for that, he is being unfairly framed and attacked because he’s spoken out against the infiltration of America’s Department of Justice (DOJ). The man has had over 70 vexatious lawsuits brought against him since he began speaking out in 2017, yet he has refused to stay silent or run away from the persecution.
In our society liberty is the norm, and detention prior to trial or without trial is the carefully limited exception.
On March 15, Guo’s Manhattan apartment was swarmed by FBI agents from the very DOJ he has been exposing. The same Southern District of New York that Guo and other Chinese Whistleblowers have exposed for deep ties to the CCP has used manufactured “evidence” as a pretext for the unlawful imprisonment of their number one critic.
Make no mistake, this is demonstrably a political hit job contrived by members of the DOJ and Southern District of New York who have been paid by the Chinese Communist Party. Independent financial podcaster, Zach De Gregorio, released a well-researched video on April 2, Is Miles Guo Innocent, providing independent verification of the DOJ coverup on behalf of Xi’s CCP.
The very institutions Guo has blown the whistle against are unlawfully detaining a man who poses no flight risk, nor a danger to society.
Guo is being presumed guilty even before standing trial, and he’s currently denied his 8th Amendment rights by being denied bail. The very institutions he has blown the whistle against are unlawfully detaining a man who poses no flight risk, nor a danger to society.
Guo’s persecution is a symptom of a diseased DOJ, truly infected by a political “CCP Virus.”
Mr. Guo’s guilt or innocence is not the main issue at this point. What should trouble every American is the capricious way our justice system has been using lawfare to silence whistleblowers and suppress dissent. Guo’s persecution is a symptom of a diseased DOJ, truly infected by a political “CCP Virus.” It is time to stop the spread, and that starts with a thorough investigation into the targeting of Guo.
As Mr. Guo’s lawyers pointed out in the March 31st filing, “Ho Wan Kwok’s memorandum in support of application for release on bail pending trial,” the U.S. Supreme Court has recognized, “[i]n our society liberty is the norm, and detention prior to trial or without trial is the carefully limited exception.” The memorandum highlights a number of legal precedents from cases similar to Guo’s, among them:
- Sam Bankman-Fried (FTX): Reported fraud losses of over $8 billion, released on a $250 million personal recognizance bond;
- Bernard Madoff (Bernard L. Madoff Investment Securities LLC): Reported fraud losses of over $50 billion, released on a $10 million personal recognizance bond;
- Elizabeth Holmes (Theranos): Estimated $700 million in investor losses, released on a $500,000 (initially unsecured) bond;
“Despite the notoriety of these cases, the number of victims, the massive dollar amounts, and the individual resources of each defendant,” rightly states the memo, “courts were nevertheless able to avoid detention and set conditions of release that allowed the defendants to be released and to participate meaningfully in their own defenses. This case should be no different.”
By holding Guo against his rights, they are making a mockery of the Rule of Law.
The unlawful detention of Mr. Guo also denies him his Sixth Amendment right to counsel by severely impacting “his ability to meaningfully participate in his own defense, and it will cripple his counsel’s ability to investigate the Government’s allegations and prepare for trial” (including a massive two terabytes of data, much of it in Mandarin).
That is, of course, exactly why SDNY has denied Guo his protected right to be released on bail. They are afraid of what he knows. By holding him against his rights, they are making a mockery of the Rule of Law.
Mr. Guo is being held under “unusually draconian restrictions” in MDC Brooklyn—a place so dangerous that on March 24, the Warden placed the entire facility on indefinite lockdown, citing an increase in contraband, including weapons. Guo is reportedly allowed just 20 minutes out of his cell and one hot meal a day. Attorney-client privilege is non-existent, as his legal team is only allowed at a small table, surrounded by other inmates and BOP staff. His legal team cannot bring in crucial documents to review with the accused.
Mr. Guo is enemy #1 of the most powerful malign regime on the planet: the CCP.
These conditions effectively deprive Guo of his right to counsel, and any meaningful opportunity to participate in his own defense.
It is shameful that this is being allowed to happen in the United States of America. Shameful.
As Guo’s legal team rightly asserts, “The Court’s analysis is therefore twofold. First, the Court must determine whether the Government has met its burden and established by a preponderance of the evidence that the defendant ‘presents a risk of flight or obstruction of justice’ Madoff, 586 F. Supp. 2d at 247. If the Court finds that the Government has met this initial burden, the Court must then evaluate whether there are reasonable conditions of release that can ameliorate the risk.”
Because Mr. Guo is enemy #1 of the most powerful malign regime on the planet—the CCP—the very last thing he would do is flee the United States, where he has resided for years as an asylum seeker. In fact, he has not left the U.S. since applying for political asylum over five years ago, in September 2017. He has, “every reason not to flee, and will remain in the United States to defend himself against allegations in the indictment.”
I’ll be unpacking more of this story in forthcoming articles. In the meantime, call your Congressional offices and demand they move to “Free Miles Guo.” He is—much like Donald Trump—fighting for you and me.
