  • Video is revealed in new book about the Chinagate scandal 

A Chinese-American businessman at the center of a Clinton campaign finance scandal secretly filmed a tell-all video as an 'insurance policy' - because he feared being murdered.

In footage provided exclusively to DailyMail.com, Johnny Chung spills details on how he illegally funneled money from Chinese officials to Bill Clinton's 1996 re-election bid.

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. 

Chung is believed to still be alive and living in China

The video was obtained by author and historian Doug 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.

Tentacles spread: The Chinagate scandal also saw Ng Lap Seng, a Macau billionaire tied to the Chinese government, accused of pouring $1 million into Clinton's 1996 reelection bid.

Wead provided excerpts from the film to Dailymail.com. The man with whom Chung made the tape, Bob Abernethy, a friend from his church, said it was right that it was shown.

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. 

He also claimed Democrats pressured him to stay silent about his dealings with the Clintons and said the FBI tried to enlist him in a sting against a top Chinese general at a Los Angeles airport.

The video comes amid renewed interest in foreign influence in Washington, as some members of President Donald Trump's team have been scrutinized for their associations with Russian officials.

The 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.

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. 

Chung cooperated with the Department of Justice during the investigation, and was sentenced to five years of probation for campaign finance violations, bank fraud and tax evasion in 1998.

According to Wead's book Game of Thorns, Chung was persuaded to film the 'insurance' video by a former government official who visited him while he was in hiding and told him that his 'odds of survival actually increased by going public.'

Chung 'received a friendly visit from a retired government official, friendly with the FBI, who perhaps felt guilty about the treatment Chung had been given after agreeing to come forward and tell the truth,' reported Wead.

'And so, with assistance from the former government official, Johnny Chung produced an elaborate videotaped testimony that was secreted to friends and family to be forwarded to the media in the case of his death.'

Chung described on the tape how Democrats on the House Committee on Government Reform tried to dissuade him from testifying publicly before the committee by sending his attorney a letter telling him he could plead the Fifth Amendment.

Chung said his attorney thought the letter was 'ludicrous' and a veiled threat from Washington Democrats that they wanted Chung to stay quiet.

'My attorney is a fine and good attorney in the West Coast,' said Chung. 'Besides, every good American attorney, they know how to take the fifth…[the Democrats] sent a package to my attorney for one purpose.'

After Chung agreed to cooperate with prosecutors on the Chinagate investigation, he feared his knowledge of the Clinton campaign finance scandal and the Chinese influence operation could make him a target for assassination.

He said he feared his knowledge of the Clinton campaign finance scandal and the Chinese influence operation could make him a target for assassination.

The FBI in Los Angeles began providing around-the-clock protection for him. But just a few days before Chung was scheduled to testify before a grand jury, the FBI headquarters in Washington called off the protection detail

NEW Hillary Clinton Bribes Scandal -- Involving Arms Deal Under Obama-cA world exclusive Radar investigation uncovered troubling links between Clinton and L3 Technologies, an arms manufacturer that recently won a deal to provide warplanes to Kenya as well as multi millions in other shady arms deals Hillary Clinton is off the campaign trail, but the scandals keep coming!

RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the disgraced politico secretly took cash from a New York-based weapon manufacturer – one who coincidentally secured a shady $418 million deal on the last day of the Obama Administration!

A world exclusive Radar investigation uncovered troubling links between Clinton and L3 Technologies, an arms manufacturer that recently won a megabucks deal to provide 14 warplanes to Kenya. Other high-ranking Democrats such as John Kerry, the late Ted Kennedy and his son Patrick were also implicated in the probe.

According to Federal Election Commission records exclusively obtained by Radar, L3 Technologies’ political action committee directly donated to Clinton as far as back as 2005.

What’s more, Radar discovered, in other instances, L3’s PAC (political action committee) contributed funds to other PACs that then funneled money to Clinton.

For instance, on April 23, 2007, and again on Feb. 21, 2008, L3’s PAC donated $1,000 to BEST PAC, which then gave $2,300 to Clinton for President on Feb. 14, 2008, while she battled Barack Obama for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.

Years later, L3 cashed in to the tune of nearly half a billion dollars with a bombshell deal.

This January, L3 Technologies was contracted to provide 12 warplanes, two trainer planes and “services” for missions to be waged against the al-Qaeda-linked terrorist group Al-Shabaab.

The sale was approved by the State Department, headed by then-Secretary of State John Kerry and privately advised to Congress on Jan. 19.

Shockingly, the deal was inked despite the fact that another arms company – one founded by a U.S. Army veteran! – had submitted a bid for $180 million, less than HALF of the tab billed by L3, according to critics.

What’s more, while L3 has reportedly NEVER before produced the sort of planes involved in the deal, the other, lower-cost company — IOMAX USA, Inc. out of Mooresville, N.C. — have made those very planes for years. http://radaronline.com/videos/hillary-clinton-scandal-arms-deal-bar...
