Although the words of the King of Han did not sound pleasant, I had to admit that the money was indeed available.

The gold and silver treasures found in Liu Guan’s mansion were piled up in huge piles, at least as much as a million taels of silver.

What’s more, there are many priceless antiques, calligraphy and paintings among these things.

If it is handed over to Prince Han to hold another tasting, a large sum of money will come into his account after the auction.

When he thought of this, Xia Yuanji’s brows suddenly relaxed, and his eyes looking at Zhu Gaoxu became much softer.

What kind of corruption among officials, what kind of official corruption, these are not things that Xia Yuanji should worry about.

He, the Minister of Household Affairs, is already very busy with finances, so he doesn’t have the energy to pay attention to this.

However, except for Xia Yuanji and Zhu Gaoxu, the faces of everyone present were ashen.

Fat Zhu Gaochi’s fat face was filled with anger, and his sharp eyes kept darting back and forth, obviously he was extremely angry.

This Liu Guan, how dare he?

As the censor of Zuodu of the Metropolitan Procuratorate, instead of serving the country with loyalty and repaying the emperor’s favor, he secretly engaged in corruption and bribery, causing chaos in the imperial court!

On the surface, he pretends to be an upright, honest, and noble scholar, but secretly he commits these deeds, and it’s all under his own nose!

When he thought of this, Zhu Gaochi’s fat face suddenly turned livid, and he gnashed his teeth in hatred towards Liu Guan!

At this moment, Nie Xing of the Hundred Households came over, looking extremely excited.

Since Xu Bin and others decided to follow the King of Han, they each had their own errands.

Zhu Gaoxu arranged for Nie Xing and others to join the Jinyiwei. After all, they had learned the skills of assassination and investigation since they were young, and joining the Jinyiwei could be regarded as their professional counterparts.

As for the big lover Xu Bin, he followed Sun Ruowei all day long to help her handle the matter of Nuergandusi’s Jingnan orphans returning home.

When Zhu Gaoxu saw Nie Xing like this, his heart suddenly moved.

‘What’s wrong? Is there any other big gain?’

besides? !

The prince and others suddenly became numb and looked a little dazed.

Unexpectedly, Nie Xing brought a bunch of letters and said with a strange smile, ‘My lord, this Liu Guan is really vigilant and has left himself a backup plan.’

‘These people who secretly corresponded with him are basically not clean. They involve Wuzhong, the censor of the right capital, and the forty-three corrupt censors of the Metropolitan Procuratorate!’

As soon as these words came out, Zhu Gaochi and others were completely dumbfounded, and felt a cold breath rushing straight to their foreheads.

It’s over!

Completely finished!

The entire Metropolitan Procuratorate is finished!

Big Fatty stepped forward and snatched the secret letters with his hands, and immediately looked through them one by one. At the end, his face was livid, and he gritted his teeth and shouted angrily, ‘You bastards! What a bunch of bastards!’

‘How dare they? How dare they!’

In the entire Metropolitan Procuratorate, under the leadership of Liu Guan and Wuzhong, the officials feasted, treated each other with luxury, were full of singers and prostitutes, and took bribes without any scruples!

They are the supervisory censors, responsible for supervising hundreds of officials to inspect counties and counties, correct prisons, clean up court rituals and other matters.

Even if they are corrupted to the point of becoming servants, wouldn’t the rest of the officials be even more miserable?

Not only Zhu Gaochi looked ugly, but Yang Shiqi and others also had livid faces.

A total of forty people from the Metropolitan Procuratorate, including the left and right imperial censors, colluded with each other to engage in corruption and bribery, and brought chaos to the imperial court!

Once this matter is known to the emperor, it will inevitably cause shock to the government and the public, and the Ming Dynasty will lead to a bloody purge!

Moreover, His Royal Highness the Crown Prince is very likely to be implicated in this matter.

After all, Liu Guan and others were engaging in massive corruption, but the Crown Prince was not aware of it at all and was deceived by their disguised appearance!

A charge of ‘negligence’ cannot be evaded.

Thinking about it, Yang Shiqi suddenly looked at Zhu Gaoxu, his eyes full of fear.

This Prince of Han is really a clever man!

He deliberately caused a stir and made a big splash, just to attract the emperor’s attention, and finally solved the case. Not only did he gain a political achievement for himself, but he also succeeded in bringing fire to His Highness the Crown Prince!

The ambition of the wolf is obvious!

Yang Shiqi took a deep breath, quickly stepped forward to take the letter, and said loudly, ‘Your Highness, the King of Han, this case involves many people, and I think it should be handed over to the Three Laws Division for trial.’

If this shocking case is left to the Sanfa Department, then the fire will not be burned on the prince. At most, it will be just a charge of negligence.

But if Han King Zhu Gaosui is allowed to take all the personal and material evidence to Jin Yiwei, and Zhao King Zhu Gaosui is a Han King Party member known to both the government and the public, who can guarantee what they will find out in the end!

At least, this fire will definitely burn the prince.

Seeing this situation, Zhu Gaoxu curled his lips and was too lazy to argue with the old boy. He immediately ordered, ‘Nie Xing, do these people remember them?’

Nie Xing nodded, his face full of excitement.

As expected, it is still a pleasure to be a royal guard!

Correct everything, investigate everything, authorized by the imperial power, kill first and report later!

Especially these corrupt officials who brought disaster to the country and the people, Nie Xing wanted to kill them all!

‘Go tell the Third Brother to arrest him!’

‘Your Highness, King of Han, didn’t your Highness hear what I just said?’

Yang Shiqi immediately became anxious when he saw this, thinking that Zhu Gaoxu was determined to drag the prince into trouble, and there was no trace of politeness or respect in his words.

Zhu Gaoxu raised his eyebrows, wondering why Yang Shiqi, an old boy, wanted to protect these moths.

‘Old man Yang, what do you mean? Are you defending Liu Guan and others like this? Are you their accomplice?’

‘Also, I advise you to hand over those piles of letters, otherwise I will treat you as an ally!’

As soon as these words came out, Zhu Gaochi and others suddenly became anxious and offered words of advice one after another.

Why did this Yang Shiqi suddenly become a monster?


He is so ambitious!

Yang Shiqi sighed secretly in his heart and shouted impassionedly, ‘The pure will become pure by itself, and the turbid will become turbid by itself. Even if His Highness the King of Han slanders the ministers, the ministers will not be afraid at all!’

‘However, Emperor Gao ordered that the three departments of the Dali Temple’s Criminal Department, Metropolitan Procuratorate, and the Procuratorate form the Three Law Division. If there is an extremely serious case, the Three Law Division will jointly conduct a ’round trial’ with the ministers and general envoys of each ministry!’

‘This case involves several important court officials and forty-three supervisory censors. It is the largest case in the Yongle Dynasty. It should be handed over to the Three Law Departments for trial. These meager letters do not dare to be handed over to His Highness the King of Han!’

Zhu Gaoxu was stunned and suddenly became anxious.

‘Old man Yang, don’t be so shameless. I pointed out that Liu Guan and others were corrupt, and under the pressure of you fools, I forcibly searched for evidence. Now you’re out to pick the peaches, right?’

‘I’m counting to three. If you don’t hand over these secret messages, I will treat you as an accomplice!’

When Yang Shiqi heard these vulgar curses, he was so angry that he trembled all over. However, for the sake of His Royal Highness, he still had to bite the bullet and said, ‘I’m sorry, these letters…’

‘What letter? Show it to me!’

The scene fell silent for a moment, everyone froze on the spot, and then quickly fell to their knees.

‘Kowtow to Your Majesty!’

Zhu Di walked in slowly with a cold face.

He first glanced at the mountains of gold and silver treasures, then looked at the pale Wuzhong, and coldly snorted, ‘What? Yang Shiqi, I can’t even look at it?’

When Yang Shiqi heard this, he was sweating like raindrops, and he handed over the letter in fear.

Zhu Di read one letter after another, always expressionless and without any reaction.

But because of this, everyone was so frightened that they hung their heads heavily and did not dare to say a word.

This is the silence before the storm!
