DOJ Filed Law Suit Against Stephen Wynn

According to related media reports, on May 17, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a civil lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against Stephen Wynn, an American businessman who served as the chief executive and hotel operator of Wynn Resort.
The indictment states that between June and August 2017, Stephen Wynn contacted then-U.S President Donald Trump and his administration members to convey that the Chinese Communist Party(CCP) wanted Miles Guo to be repatriated from the United States. At the request of Sun Lijun, the then vice minister of the Ministry of Public Security of the CCP, Wynn made clear to President Trump this request directly during dinner and phone calls. Wynn also arranged for Trump and his senior officials to meet with Sun Lijun and other CCP officials at the White House and at the National Security Council to discuss the repatriation of Miles Guo.
The indictment also mentioned that while Wynn lobbied President Trump, his company had been owning and running casinos in China’s Macau Special Administrative Region. To this end, the U.S. Department of Justice believes that Wynn’s mediation on behalf of the CCP is based on protecting its commercial interests in Macau.
It is reported that the DOJ has repeatedly asked Wynn to register as a foreign agent, but have been repeatedly rejected. In this civil lawsuit, the DOJ determined that Wynn’s conduct fully conforms to the status of a foreign agent. Therefore Wynn is again required to register under the name of the foreign agent, who is acting as an agent for senior officials of the CCP and its Ministry of Public Security.
In addition, Matthew Olson, Assistant Attorney General for the Department of Justice’s National Security Department, said it was the first time in three decades that affirmative civil action was being filed under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. which also showed that the Department of Justice was working to ensure transparency in the United States’ democratic system, Namely, when foreign governments used Americans as their agents to influence U.S. policy decisions, the Foreign Agents Registration Act gives the American people the right to know.
