• See Wang Jun's entry in our White House coffee database
One of the more unusual guests at the controversial White House coffees was Wang Jun, chairman of a Chinese arms-trading company under investigation for alleged involvement in a weapons smuggling case in San Francisco.

The principal intermediary for Wang's attendance at the White House coffee was Little Rock, Ark., restaurateur Yah Lin "Charlie" Trie.

Clinton has called Wang's attendance at the White House coffee "clearly inappropriate."

Wang is also chairman of the China International Trust and Investment Corp. (CITIC), the most influential financial and industrial conglomerate in China.
