Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao's lawyer has responded to the bombshell allegations in Friday's New York Times. In a statement translated by the South China Morning Post:
I. The so-called hidden riches of Wen Jiabaos family members in the New York Times report does not exist.
The statement goes on to specifically refute allegations, before hinting at legal action:
VI. We will continue to make clarifications regarding untrue reports by the New York Times, and reserve the right to hold it legally responsible.
The NYT story specifically said that Wen's extended family had more than $2.7 billion in hidden assets, and that his wife was notorious as China's "diamond queen".

Let me see if I have this right: We are in the final week of the most critical election I can recall in 60+ years, with a venal, pusillanimous liar as our president and the NYT is doing a hit piece ON THE CHINESE PREMIER?
That puts a new slant on things!

The NYT should send a big thank you note and a dozen roses to Wen Jiabao’s lawyer. There is nothing like being sued by somebody who cannot possibly win, representing a foreign tyrant. Free publicity.
