Guo Wengui With Stephen Bannon Cited Sued Strategic Vision Now Talk of 5th Amendment

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 31 – Guo Wengui's Eastern Profit Corporation sued Strategic Vision US LLC, in a sealed complaint.  

 On October 5, 2020 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Lewis J. Liman held a proceeding. Inner City Press live tweeted it, here and below.

 Now on March 31 after Steve Bannon got a pardon from then-President Trump, Judge Liman held another conference, and Inner City Press again covered it.

  As the parties prepared to go to (bench) trial, Eastern Profit's lawyer asked to go into a sealed courtroom. Judge Liman asked for her proffer and she said that a certain witness - whom she left unnamed - may well invoke the Fifth Amendment right to not incriminate oneself, that there are criminal issues in the air.

Inner City Press is now publishing the complaint on Patreon here; the talk of the centrality of the witness and the looming but not current criminal issues point in one direction, more on Patreon here.

 The defense's lawyer, who also said he "just got his shot" meaning COVID vaccine, said he knows who the witness is and yes, he is central.

 Judge Liman said this didn't have to be addressed at this time. Inner City Press will stay on the case.

From October 5: Now @SDNYLIVE  Judge Liman is denying summary judgment in case of Guo Wengui and Strategic Vision, can't agree if a person wants to overthrow Chinese Communist Party can't be proven or not. Inner City Press, blocked by CCP's Zhang Jun, will live tweet 

The case was filed under seal in SDNY in March 2018. Much later it was unsealed. A jury trial was set for Nov 2, 2020 - but now Strategic is point to Gov. Cuomo's quarantine orders. Main witness French Wallop live in Virginia... 

From one of the motions for summary judgment, Guo 1 Tr., Ex. AA: "Q: What was it about the 15 names that led you to believe that Strategic's research would be useful to you in your goal of eliminating the Chinese Communist Party? Grendi: Object to form   

Judge Liman: I'd like to keep the trial date, & do it as a bench trial. Happy to do it partly in the courtroom.    

Eastern's lawyer Joanna J. Cline of Troutman Pepper: Zoom would be fine. Strategic's lawyer Ed Greim: Our issue is we have to isolate in NY for 14 days   

Strategic's Greim: It would be difficult to cross examine these witnesses including Mr. Guo by Zoom and with an interpreter. Judge Liman: Mr. Greim, your arguments are ones that might make it difficult for me to give Eastern a trial any time soon

  The case, in which Guo is also known as Miles Kwok and in which now SDNY criminal subject Stephen K. Bannon is also listed, is Eastern Profit Corporation Limited v. Strategic Vision US LLC, 18-cv-2185 (Liman)
