The DOJ accuses that Steve Wynn acted as a Chinese Communist Party (CCP) agent without being registered under Foreign Agents Registration Acts (FARA).  Wayne’s lawyers dismissed the allegations, saying “Steve Wynn has never acted as an agent for the Chinese Government and is not obligated to register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act.”  Reid Weingarten and Brian Heberlig also said, “We respectfully disagree with the Justice Department’s interpretation of FARA’s law and look forward to proving our case in court.”

In a lawsuit filed by the DOJ Steve Wynn was sought to register as a foreign agent.  The lawsuit states that in late August 2017, Broidy hosted Mr. Wayne and his wife on a private yacht off the Coast of Italy after Wynn had discussed and met with Trump at the White House about the identity of a Chinese citizen, Miles Guo.  Trump at the time responded that he would look into the matter.

After the dinner, Elliott Broidy informed the defendant, Steve Wynn, via text message through the defendant’s wife, that Sun was “very happy and said that President Xi Jinping thanked [the defendant] for his help.”

In a complaint filed in Federal Court in Washington D.C., the DOJ said Wynn was involved in the efforts at the request of Sun Lijun, a former vice minister of CCP’s Public Security.  Wynn did it out of the desire for Wynn’s casino operations in Cacau.

Matthew G. Olsen, assistant attorney general of the DOJ’s National Security Division, said in a statement Tuesday that the lawsuit was “the first brought under the Foreign Agents Registration Act in more than three decades.  Affirmative Civil Action.”  The law, which was rarely invoked in criminal cases, requires individuals to register with the U.S. Attorney General before lobbying on behalf of foreigners.
