US media reported in August that two NGOs linked to exiled Chinese businessman Guo Wengui hosted an exclusive event in NYC in June that served as a platform for several former Trump allies to “spew anti-government rhetoric and conspiracy theories” about the 2020 election. According to a CNBC report:
August 19, 2021 It was supposed to be a celebration for a movement that opposes the Chinese Communist Party. Instead, the swanky private party, held in June at the top of One World Trade Center, served as a platform for several of former President Donald Trump’s allies, including former advisor Steve Bannon and personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, to spew anti-government rhetoric and conspiracy theories about the 2020 election. The invitation-only event was hosted by a couple of shadowy nonprofits, the Rule of Law Foundation and the Rule of Law Society. They are linked to Guo Wengui, a wealthy exiled businessman from China who is an ardent opponent of that nation’s ruling Communist Party.

The report notes that Trump allies such as Steve Bannon, Mike Flynn, Rudy Giuliani, and Mike Lindell spread debunked claims that China interfered in the 2020 election to defeat Trump or that Trump won the last US election.
The Rule of Law Society and the Rule of Law Foundation are part of a vast disinformation network linked to Chinese exiled billionaire Guo Wengui which describe themselves as a resource for whistleblowers who want to safely speak out against the Chinese government. Former Trump advisor Steve Bannon, who together with Guo founded the venture in 2018, was until last summer also chair of the board of the Rule of Law Society.
The CNBC report noted that the NYC event was the first anniversary celebration of the inauguration of another Guo-linked movement called The New Federal State of China, which sees itself as a “government in exile” that seeks to “take down” the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
