In Miles Guo Trial Anonymous Jurors Are Asked of Bannon and Crypto Inner City Press X

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 22 – After a circus-like civil case involving Guo Wengui in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, which Inner City Press closely covered, here, March 15, 2023 saw the unsealing of a twelve-count Indictment charging

HO WAN KWOK, a/k/a “Miles Guo,” a/k/a “Miles Kwok,” a/k/a “Guo Wengui,” a/k/a “Brother Seven,” a/k/a “The Principal,” and KIN MING JE, a/k/a “William Je,” with various wire fraud, securities fraud, bank fraud, and money laundering charges. "

Not mentioned was another, related arrest on March 15, of Guo's chief of staff Yangping Wang, aka Yvette Wang. Inner City Press, lone media in the Magistrates Court, live tweeted her presentment.

Jump cut to January 9, 2024 when Guo and Wang were arraigned on the superseding indictment. It was done on no notice; none of his supporters were there. Inner City Press was, and live tweeted, threadette here

Jump cut again to May 2, 2024 - Yvette Wang to plead guilty on May 3: "ORDER as to Yvette Wang: The Court shall hold a change-of-plea hearing for Defendant, Yvette Wang, on May 3, 2024, at 9:30 a.m.(Signed by Judge Analisa Torres on 5/2/2024)." Order on Patreon here

And, as Inner City Press first reported, it happened: "WANG, 45, of New York, New York, pled guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering, which together carry a maximum term of 10 years in prison.  As part of her guilty plea, WANG agreed to pay restitution of $1,400,000,000 and to forfeit $1,400,000,000 to the United States."

On May 7 Judge Torres entered an order about exhibits - how many will the public get to see? - order on Patreon here

On May 21, the US Attorney's Office wrote in seeking to preclude the fire issue from the trial: "To avoid a confusing and time-consuming mini-trial that lacks probative value, the Court should preclude evidence and argument relating to the fire at the defendant’s apartment following the defendant’s arrest...., the FBI announced their presence outside Guo’s penthouse apartment, but did not make entry for approximately 15 minutes. Then, while the FBI was conducting its search, a fire broke out" - full 7 page letter on Patreon here.

On May 22, Inner City Press live tweeted jury selection, here.

   Many were excused from the jury pool.
