Working for or with the Clintons is not without its hazards. Perhaps they pay well, but if you slip up or are found to be more of a liability than an asset, your future can become rather bleak. If there seems to be some similarity between this description of how the Clintons function and the way the mob is alleged to work, well, that’s purely coincidental. We would never wish to drag the mob down to the level of Bill and Hillary.
All of that said, the Clintons have engaged in so many nefarious activities that what remains of those offenses are like seeds scattered, just waiting for an opportunity to blossom forth creating more problems for Bill and Hillary.
One of those may be bursting forth now as a new book about “Chinagate” is being published.
Recall that the Chinagate scandal involved a Chinese-American businessman named Johnny Chung who, “illegally funneled money from Chinese officials to Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election bid.”
Fearing for his life, should the Clintons decide he might become a serious liability, he “secretly filmed a tell-all video as an ‘insurance policy’ – because he feared being murdered. The Chinese-American Clinton fundraiser recorded the ‘elaborate videotaped testimony’ while in hiding in 2000. He smuggled it to trusted friends and family with instructions to release it to the media in the event of his untimely death because he believed he was at risk of being assassinated.”
Apparently he has escaped any fatal consequences for his actions as, “Chung is believed to still be alive and living in China.”
Even a casual observer of current events will notice the irony of Hillary and the Democratic Party leadership alleging illegal interference in the recent presidential election by Russians in the light of Chinagate. Bill and Hillary certainly have more than their share of gall.
The Clintons are a formidable team. This has been proven time and again by their ability to avoid the consequences of scandals that would have ended the political careers of others if not landed them in jail. And none of this is recent stuff. Think back, if you can, to the early days of Bill Clinton’s first presidential campaign. Whole teams were set up just to deal with scandals such as the infamous “bimbo eruptions.” So they have decades of experience in avoiding prosecution for their alleged offenses.
But why is Chinagate coming to surface again now? “The video [made by Chung] was obtained by author and historian David Wead for his new book Game of Thorns, which traces Hillary Clinton’s unsuccessful 2016 campaign and the Chinese government’s long-running operation to buy political influence in Washington.”
Chinagate is an incredibly complex story of influence buying and illegal campaign contributions with the Clintons and China at the center. For example, “Chung, one of the main players in the ‘Chinagate’ scandal, was accused of giving over $300,000 to the Democratic National Committee on behalf of the head of China’s military intelligence agency during Clinton’s reelection bid.”
Why did he make this video that has now surfaced? “In the never-before-released footage, Chung described how he feared for his life after he publicly admitted to funneling money from Chinese officials to President Bill Clinton’s 1996 reelection campaign.” Specifically, “[t]he video grew out of a controversy in the mid-1990s when evidence surfaced that Chinese officials were pouring hundreds of thousands into then president Bill Clinton’s reelection campaign through American straw donors.”
One can only wonder what will be revealed in the book, Game of Thorns. However, if it contains thorough and extensive revelations taken from Mr. Chung’s video, it will be one more in a long line of revelations of criminal actions by the Clintons.
We’re not suggesting that this will be the event that finally sinks them, but it will do nothing to dispel the belief that they are a pair of crooks.
