In Miles Guo Trial US Rests Then Crypto Expert of Defense Charging $1450 an Hour Ex Fed

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Substack

SDNY COURTHOUSE, July 2 – 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.

At the end of May 23, Judge Torres told the remaining jurors that the trial would start Friday. Thread.

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 24, when in an order on reconsideration it was ordered that "Guo’s motion to permit the testimony of Paul Doran, his expert on the Chinese Communist Party (“CCP”), is GRANTED only as to Doran’s testimony on (1) the CCP’s opposition to specific political causes for which Guo has publicly advocated; and (2) the “secret, extra-legal Chinese police station” identified in New York City, and is otherwise DENIED"- full 17 page order on Patreon here.

On July 1, when the trial did not meet, Guo's lawyer wrote in that "the defense reiterates that it does not intend to argue to the jury that the prosecution team in this case or the U.S. Attorney’s Office in general are acting as agents of a foreign power. But that is entirely different from arguing that the Chinese Communist Party is seeking to silence Mr. Guo through a number of different methods, including by forcing investors to complain falsely to U.S. courts and regulators about Mr. Guo’s conduct" - full 8 page letter on Patreon here.

On July 2, after the government completed its case and rested, the defense put on the stand a valuation expert - and then Maggie Sklar as a crypto expert, previously with the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, charging $1450 an hour.
