Executive Director of the Falun Dafa Information Center, Levi Browde, joined American Thought Leaders on May 30, 2023, where he broke down the recent bribery scheme charges against two Chinese agents who targeted a purported IRS officials to “topple” Falun Gong practitioners in the US.
Two suspected Chinese agents, acting directly on the order of a CCP official, were recently charged for attempting to bribe a public official with tens of thousands of dollars in a scheme targeting Falun Gong in the United States.
John Chen, a 70-year-old U.S. citizen born in China, and Lin Feng, a Chinese citizen aged 43, were trying to get a Falun Gong-run entity stripped of its tax-exempt status, court filings state.
The pair met with what turned out to be an undercover agent posing as an IRS official and promised to pay a total of $50,000. Chen gave the agent $1,000 in cash, as an initial payment on May 14. Four days later, Feng gave the undercover agent another $4,000 in cash at the John F. Kennedy International Airport.
