by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, June 18 – 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 of Miles Guo onvarious wire fraud, securities fraud, bank fraud, and money laundering charges.

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

   Many were excused from the jury pool.

And it did. Inner City Press live tweeted the opening and first two witnesses, an FBI agent about the Greenwich search, and a Dallas based Lamborghini dealer, thread here.

Jump cut to June 15, three weeks and and the trial moving too slowly. The defense wrote in, "We write in response to the Court’s order that trial next week will be held from 9:30 am to 5 pm to allow the government additional time to catch up to its previous trial estimate.... spreadsheet attached as Exhibit A, shows that the defense is regularly left with little time to prepare for cross-examinations, which leads to, among other things, prolonged examinations." Letter and spreadsheet (with witness names) on Patreon here.

On June 17, from the first extended day, thread

On June 18, more from the witness Ms. Reyes, thread:

Ms Reyes still on the stand. AUSA: I show you these documents -  Guo's lawyer: Objection. Judge: Step up. [Whispered sidebar]

AUSA: In your time at G-Clubs did you see documents where G-Clibs Operations was the lender?

Reyes: Yes. AUSA: How much are these transfers for? Reyes: $20 million and $15 million

AUSA: Did you become aware of US government seizure of G-Club funds in Mercantile Bank? Reyes: Yes. I was concerned. I had been working hard. Then this email, to cancel all my signatory rights

 Reyes: So I replied that I understood [sobs] that I would lose my signing rights AUSA: Was this a difficult time for you at G-Clubs? Reyes: Yes.
