Exiled billionaire Guo Wengui (aka Miles Kwok) claimed China is being controlled by a small clique of crooked high-level officials. Guo also said Chinese security officials earlier this year authorized an escalation of espionage efforts in the United States. Guo's earlier scheduled appearance at a Washington think tank was postponed due to what he said was heavy pressure by China.
A controversial Chinese billionaire in self-imposed exile blasted on Thursday what he said was a small clique of corrupt "kleptocrats" running China as he also warned of a wave of Chinese spies being dispatched to the United States in recent months.
"What they're doing is against humanity," said Guo Wengui, during an appearance at the National Press Club in Washington, two days after a previously scheduled appearance at a think tank in the same city was postponed due to what he called heavy pressure from the Chinese government.
"What the U.S. ought to do is take action, instead of just talking to the Chinese kleptocracy," Guo said through a translator.
"They are just a tiny group of Mafia, pure and simple," said Guo, a real-estate magnate also known as Miles Kwok, who lives in a $68 million apartment in New York City.

“claimed China is being controlled by a small clique of crooked high-level officials. “
Gosh, that must be really rough, living in a nation controlled by a small clique of crooked high-level officials. /s
Communist regimes are kleptocracies by nature and by definition.
“The US is being controlled by a small clique of crooked high-level officials. American security officials earlier this year authorized an escalation of espionage efforts in the United States against the president.”
Change a few words and it describes America perfectly.
“China is being controlled by a small clique of crooked high-level officials.”
CNBC thinks that is breaking news?
Yes. You are 110% correct. That’s a given. They could not be otherwise
The word ‘kleptocracy’ describes the Clinton administration.
It’s a Communist country. OF COURSE, it’s being controlled by a small circle of corrupt people. Where’s the beef?
If every Chinese restaurant in this country harbors an espionage cell, how many is that?
damn, that’s an if observation.
So, how was he able to become a billionaire?
This has been recurrent in history. A relatively small circle of morons with no ethical restraints manipulates their way to power. The reality is that most people are so busy trying to make sense of their own lives such that they don't have time to truly watch what is going on around them. Scam artists, (i.e. MOST politicians) take advantage of this. Sometimes the only way to stop people like this is to take EVERYTHING from them, forcefully. Inevitably, people who live by such such selfish motivations as these “high-level officials” die unhappy and unfulfilled. The problem is that they make lots of people miserable in the interim.
