Exiled Chinese Billionaire Uses YouTube To Wage A War On Corruption (HBO)

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.

  2. He's definitely not lying about his phone China will hack your electronic items, like your Wi-Fi, your computer… When I stayed in Guangzhou in 2007 in downtown area. Many times, my Wi-Fi on my laptop will go off saying someone is trying to hack it… They knew I,an American citizen was in that hotel.

  3. Well, bribery and fraud is an integral part of communism, so why act all surprised? If you know any rich person who had ties with any communist regime, you can easily assume his hands are dirty too.

  4. It's easy to disappear with that kind of money, risks his own and family's safety to ruffle the feathers of the beast, why ? Why would you go through so much effort? Ego ? Saving face ? Or he knows the truth ? These are not the normal behaviours of a extremely wealthy person, he's essentially risking everything, 99% of corrupt officials on the run would simply hide away in extreme wealth, something's wrong in this case. Shame on Facebook / twitter ! Paper bags reach anywhere these days.

  5. this is just a corrupted criminal….he is hiding here and there every day…living like a rat…and spread fake news …rumour as revenge…wont be long before he gets arrested…. i wonder whether he is living happily…and believed in what he said…hahaha..
