The journalist, Bill Gertz, was fired from the Washington Free Beacon last year for what the publication called an "undisclosed financial transaction" with someone he covered.

The disclosure sheds light on the journalist's mysterious firing last fall and offers a window into that billionaire's connections to influential China hawks.

In a deposition from Oct. 15, Gertz told lawyers for a company involved in a lawsuit with another company connected to billionaire Guo Wengui, aka Miles Kwok, that he had approached Guo for an advance for Deceiving the Sky, his latest book on China that was published last year. Gertz described it as a "loan" that would be paid back using his book royalties.
