When it comes to exceeding the envelope of proper political behavior, the Clintons are the premiere operatives. When Donald Trump talks about clearing the swamp, this is what he is talking about. You think it is bad now? Step back to 1994 with this writer as he revisits Jhonny Chung, the Riady family, and the China buyout of the Democrat party. See where Hillary and Dick Morris became the primary movers and shakers of illegally sought funds.
As Written By Bob Cashill for American Thinker:
“The White House is like a subway. You have to put in coins to open the gates.”
Such were the immortal words of one Johnny Chung, who admitted to a Senate committee in 1997 that he funneled $100,000 from the Chinese military to the Democratic National Committee. In the Clinton White House, it was pay to play all the way. That either Bill or Hillary had a political life after their treasonous run on Asian piggy banks is a testament to the ever escalating corruption of the American media.

The deepest pockets the Clintons plundered belonged to the Riadys, an ethnic Chinese family that worked out of Indonesia. The Thompson Committee cited any number of large-scale Riady joint ventures in China, their principal partner in the People’s Republic being an enterprise called China Resources, “a company wholly-owned and operated by the PRC government.” The Riadys had invested in Bill Clinton back in Arkansas and bailed him out during the 1992 primary campaign. As payback, they were allowed to put their man John Huang in the Commerce Department.
And what were Huang’s talents? A letter sent by an Asian outreach advocate on the stationery of the then-president pro tem of the California state Senate was frank to a fault: “John is the Riady family’s top priority for placement because he is like one of their own.” The Riady family, in case anyone needed reminding, “invested heavily in the Clinton campaign.” To some, those were credentials enough.
Huang’s actual work was icing on the cake. The Thompson Committee makes …
