The whole thing is so tenuous as to be completely unverifiable. The possibility that Xi pulled strings for a property developer, or allowed someone to do so on his behalf, is not impossible, but for this to be a problem a) he has to profit from it, which I seriously doubt he would even bother to, and b) it's particularly outrageous given the norm of Chinese corruption. This is in the range of William Hague scoring a peerage for Ashcroft, at most.

Victor seems to have an antipathy toward Xi and the princeling party in general that really isn't justified by facts. This is as classic a case of a tempest in a teacup as it gets.
