DOJ Orders Trump Confidante Steve Wynn To Register As Foreign Agent

Source: Huffington Post

The Justice Department has told Steve Wynn, former casino mogul and friend of former President Donald Trump, that he must register as a foreign lobbyist or risk a lawsuit brought by the U.S. government, The Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg reported Wednesday.

Prosecutors are prepared to take Wynn to court if he refuses to file under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg and the Journal. The decision is reportedly linked to Wynnís alleged 2017 efforts to persuade U.S. officials to send businessman Guo Wengui, whom Chinese authorities consider a fugitive, back to China.

Guo, a member of Trumpís Mar-a-Lago golf resort, has been accused of bribery, fraud and money laundering, all of which he has denied. Last year, former Trump adviser Steve Bannon was arrested on Guoís yacht off the coast of Connecticut after Bannon was indicted for fraud.

Wynn, a Trump business rival turned informal adviser to his presidential administration, had interests in the Chinese gambling destination of Macau in 2017 when he delivered a letter to Trump from Chinese officials about Guo, the Journal reported. Wynn has denied any wrongdoing.
