At some point the Justice Department decided that if it had the chance, it would charge Mr. Lee. Officials suspected that opportunity might come later this year when Mr. Lee’s daughter graduated from college, an occasion that might draw him back to the United States.
When Mr. Lee surprised the government recently by booking a trip to New York, prosecutors hurried to file the charge that they had kept waiting for years.
