Guo Staffer Yvette Wang Requested Info From Pre Trial Services Now Wants 2 More Weeks

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 5 – After a circus-like civil case involving Guo Wengui in SDNY, which Inner City Press closely covered, here, March 15, 2023 saw the unsealing of a criminal indictment.

Not mentioned was another, related arrest on March 15, of Guo's chief of staff Yanping Wang, aka Yvette Wang. Inner City Press live tweeted her presentment when the prosecutors offered release on $5 million bond, but only with two co-signers they approve.

  On March 22, Inner City Press was again the only media in the SDNY Magistrates Court when Yvette Wang and her two lawyers showed up, complaining that a proposed suretor with a $2.5 million property was rejected. Afterward Inner City Press asked Wang's lawyer Alex Lipman to confirm it is or was Steve Bannon. He said, "We're not going to answer."  Inner City Press' vlog, and live tweeted thread here.

On March 24 after 11 pm Wang's lawyer, trying to get out of representing Jen Shah, proposed eight names - letter on Patreon here.

 On Sunday April 2 the prosecutors provided an update, full letter on Patreon here.

On April 21, the date after District Judge Analisa Torres denied bail for Miles Guo Wengui, Magistrate Judge Robert W. Lehrburger followed suit and denied bail for Yvette Wang. Full order on Patreon here.

On April 27-28, Wang through counsel requested from Judge Torres an order for information from Pre-Trial Services, beginning "we write to request Your Honor order the Pretrial Services Office for the Southern District of New York to provide the following information: 1. The name and contact information for the Pretrial Services trainee who participated in Ms. Wang’s pretrial interview; 2. Any written list of questions or script, whether formal or informal, that Pretrial Officer Jessica Aguilar-Adan used during Ms. Wang’s pretrial interview, or, if there is no such list or script" - full filing on Patreon here.

On May 4 Judge Torres ordered: "ORDER as to Yanping Wang: By May 11, 2023, the Government shall respond to Defendant Wang's letter dated April 27, 2023, filed at ECF No. 59, stating whether it objects to Defendant's request. SO ORDERED. (Signed by Judge Analisa Torres on 5/4/2023)." Order on Patreon here.

On May 5, Wang's counsel asked for an extension of the time to file a motion against the Magistrate's detention order, until 14 days after they get the Pre-Trial Services information (if they get it) - "We cannot adequately respond to the detention order until we receive and review this information. Therefore, we herein object to Magistrate Lehrburger’s detention order, and respectfully request the Court permit us to file a motion to revoke the detention order under 18 U.S.C. § 3145(b) fourteen days after we receive the requested information from Pretrial Services" - full letter on Patreon here.
