Remember when the Chinese ambassador requested a meeting with campaign aides from Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign? Of course you don’t. The mainstream media swept the shocking revelation from WikiLeaks under the rug.
The email below from WikiLeaks was sent from Kurt Campbell on January 7, 2016 to several members of the Hillary Clinton campaign staff including John Podesta:
Guys – Chinese Ambassador Cui invited me over to the residence Tuesday for a coffee and to make a request. He wants to have an informal, private, off the record get together with a few of us to discuss the next year and the current state of US-China affairs. He asked me to host a social meal at my house in the next month. He was fairly insistent and indicated that he wanted to pass along some perspectives. I told him I’d reach out to you all to see about your judgement on this and possible availability. I’m happy to make some chili and cornbread by the fire but let’s first decide whether this makes sense. Please let me know your thinking.
The Daily Caller News Foundation reported in mid-February that, “Emails from The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group seeking comment from recipients of Campbell’s message were opened but no responses were received. The Chinese Embassy’s spokesperson did not respond to TheDCNF’s request for comment. Cui’s request for the off-the-record meeting with Clinton campaign aides provides additional perspective on the scandal swirling around President Donald Trump and his former National Security Adviser, retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn…
…Clinton links to Chinese officials and interests are not new. The Daily Caller reported Aug. 11, 2016, that a “Clinton Foundation donor’s financial activity was suspicious enough for FBI and Justice Department officials to meet earlier this year to consider opening an investigation into the Clinton family charity.”
This is certainly not the first time that the Clinton’s have been involved in corruption with the Chinese. Towards the end of February the Daily Mail reported that a Chinese businessman, Johnny Chung, feared he would be assassinated after he admitted that he funneled money illegally from Chinese officials to Bill Clinton’s 1996 presidential campaign.
Corruption is something that certainly follows the Clinton’s around wherever they go and regardless of what they do the mainstream media is unlikely to report on it.
