The Free Beacon reported:
The office of Vice President Joe Biden overruled State and Justice Department officials in denying the political asylum request of a senior Chinese communist official last February over fears the high-level defection would upset the U.S. visit of China’s vice president, according to U.S. officials.
The defector, Wang Lijun, was turned away after 30 hours inside the U.S. Consulate Chengdu and given over to China’s Ministry of State Security, the political police and intelligence service.
Wang has not been seen since Feb. 7 and remains under investigation. His attempt to flee China set off a major power struggle within the ruling Communist Party and led to the ouster of leftist Politburo member Bo Xilai and the arrest of his wife on murder charges.
New disclosures on the handling of the failed defection come as the Obama administration is facing a new test of its relations with Beijing over another defection, the flight to the U.S. Embassy in Beijing of Chen Guangcheng, a blind human rights activist who is believed to be in hiding there.
Wang spent about 24 hours inside the consulate before being expelled by the Obama Administration and collected by Chinese central government authorities. He could now face treason charges. Shortly after he was expelled from the US Consulate the Chinese media reported that Wang was “seriously indisposed due to long term overwork and intense mental stress.” They continued, “Currently he has been authorized to undergo vacation-style medical treatment.”
Obama fed him to the Chicoms.
