DOJ Takes a Short Break from Targeting Concerned Parents as "Domestic Terrorists" To Note that China is Running Blackmail/Coercion Operations Against Critics of China

Local international espionage crime story.

One of the targets was a Chinese candidate for the US Congress. He criticized China, and Chinese-descended people, in particular, are not allowed to do that.

As the Mafia claimed to own southern Italian immigrants, so China claims to own US citizens of Chinese descent.

The Justice Department planned to unseal criminal charges Wednesday involving three separate efforts by Chinese government agents to intimidate critics of Beijing living in the U.S., according to court documents and officials familiar with the cases.

Among the targets of the Chinese efforts was Arthur Liu, a lawyer and political activist in the San Francisco Bay area. He is the father of an Olympic figure skater, Alysa Liu. When he lived in China, he helped organize pro-democracy demonstrations.

His daughter has credited him with supporting and encouraging her. "He just helps me so much," she told NBC News during the Olympic games.

Another target was a Democratic candidate for Congress in New York, Xiong Yan, according to officials familiar with the case. Yan was involved in the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests. Court documents say the Chinese agent, Qiming Lin, contacted a private investigator in New York and encouraged him to "find dirt" in order to discourage Yan from staying in the race.

"Can we manufacture something?" the agent asked, according to court documents. Lin recommended hiring a prostitute and even suggested that the private investigator could figure out some say to injure Yan. "Right now, we don't want him to be elected," Lin said, according to the documents.

Press conference here. You know how the DOJ and FBI love their press conferences.

More: They hired a US-based private investigator with ties to China's Ministry of State Security (MSS).

U.S. prosecutors have accused China of trying to harass and undermine an American critic of China who is running for U.S. Congress, according to a criminal complaint unsealed on Wednesday in federal court in New York.

Federal prosecutors in New York's Brooklyn borough said a Chinese government agent named Qiming Lin asked a U.S.-based private investigator to help manufacture a political scandal that would undermine the congressional candidate.

The candidate was not identified in court documents, but fits the description of Xiong Yan, who is seeking the Democratic nomination to run for a U.S. House of Representatives seat representing the eastern part of New York's Long Island.

Yan is a dissident who was involved in the Tiananmen Square protests of 1989. He served in the U.S. Army and is a naturalized U.S. citizen.
