After Yan arrived in the United States, Bannon, Guo and their allies immediately set out to package her as a whistleblower they could sell to the American public.
They installed her in a “safe house” outside of New York City and hired lawyers, Bannon said. They found her a media coach, since English is not her first language. Bannon also asked her to submit multiple papers summarizing her purported evidence, Yan later said.
“Make sure you can walk people through this logically,” Bannon recalled telling her.
Bannon and Guo have been on a mission for years to, as they put it, bring down the Chinese Communist Party.
Guo, who also goes by Miles Kwok, was a property magnate in China with ties to senior party officials until he fled the country about five years ago under the shadow of corruption allegations. He has since styled himself as a freedom fighter, although many are skeptical of his motivations.https://www.chicagotribune.com/coronavirus/ct-nw-nyt-steve-bannon-china-20201126-lxias3uv4fen7o4zlplyvbzwti-story.html
