As the dispute between Guo Wengui and Hu Shuli continues [as discussed in recent briefings], analysts are discussing who is the back-up behind each of them. Ma Jian, former vice minister of state security, used to be a back-up who supported Guo Wengui. Ma Jian’s top leader was Zeng Qinghong, who is former top leader Jiang Zemin’s top advisor. Hu Shuli has been close to Wang Qishan, who is in charge of the CCP Central Commission for Discipline. Hu’s Caixin media outlet has been viewed as a media outlet that is assisting current top leader Xi Jinping’s anti-corruption campaign. Does this mean that a big fight may be going on between Zeng Qinghong and Wang Qishan?
