And yet, self-proclaimed Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui has inserted himself into GOP politics, reportedly dodging a Chinese extradition request thanks to a Mar-a-Lago membership. And most recently, in a whiplash-inducing turn of events, Guo is now facing down allegations of being a spy for the same government that has demanded his extradition

Guo came to prominence in January 2017 when he launched a media campaign exposing corruption among high-ranking Chinese officials from the comfort of his Central Park-adjacent Manhattan apartment.

For that, he teamed up with Steve Bannon. And when his case caught the ire of Chinese officials demanding his return, Trump refused to deport him — reportedly in part because of his membership at Trump's personal club.
