On Tuesday May 17th, the U.S. Department of Justice indicted casino mogul Steve Wynn to force him to register as the Chinese Communist state agent.  In addition, the DOJ accused him of lobbying then President Trump, to cancel Mr. Guo Wengui’s visa in 2017 at the request of the Chinese Communist Government.

According to Reuters, the U.S. Department of Justice said that Wynn asked the Trump administration a request to cancel Mr. Guo Wengui’s visa on behalf of Sun Lijun, a former vice-minister of the China’s Ministry of Public Security.  Wynn acted at the request of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to protect his business interests in Macau.

Sources say Wynn Resorts operates a luxury hotel and casino in Macau and that the CCP expressly granted the authority to use the full license.

The State Department said that from at least June through August of 2017, Wynn contacted Trump and members of his administration to relay this request from the CCP.  In addition, the State Department noted Wynn conveyed the CCP’s proposal to Trump over dinner and on the phone and had numerous discussions with senior White House and National Security Council officials about arranging meetings with Sun Lijun and other CCP officials.

The DOJ asked U.S. Las Vegas casino mogul Wynn to register as an agent of Communist China.

The U.S. Department of Justice’s civil lawsuit alleges that it had recommended in April 2018, 2021, and 2022 that Wynn register as an agent of Communist China under FARA, but Wynn refused to do so.  Wynn resigned as chief executive officer of Wynn Resorts in early 2018.

Sources said that the lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. It seeks a declaratory judgment (same effect as a final judgment and is legally binding) that Wynn is obligated to register as an agent of the CCP under FARA.
