This is just the tip of the iceberg, and what we will soon find out about the Clintons will likely not only damage the Clintons, but the Democrats in general.
Recall the scandal surrounding the Clintons, as they were accused of selling secrets to the Chinese, and taking illegal campaign funds. We now learn that Ng Lap Seng was arrested in New York last weekend by FBI agents working with federal prosecutors assigned to the public corruption squad in the Southern District of New York.
His arrest came on the same day the Chinese President Xi Jinping arrived in Seattle for a state visit to the United States.
Like Trump, Ng is a prominent real estate developer on the gambling center island of Macau, and is said to have close ties to the Chinese government, reported to be a member of a senior advisory group called the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference.
Remember it was Trump who alluded to the notion that the Clintons are for sale, as Hillary attended his wedding for a campaign donation.
A criminal complaint against Ng, filed in federal court, described a series of trips Ng made to the U.S., where he arrived often by private jet, carrying large amounts of cash. Supposedly Ng lied about the purpose for bringing the cash, falsely claiming it was for the purchase of real estate, art or for gambling.
According to the complaint, FBI agents surveilled Ng on several of his most recent trips and found that “at no point” was he seen “looking at paintings available for purchase, purchasing paintings, or gambling.”
The complaint does not offer details about who the government believes received the cash, other than identifying a “Business Associate-1”.
The Clinton campaign of course denies any contact with Ng, as one would surmise they would do. Nevertheless there is a history.
Ng was identified in a 1998 Senate report as the source of hundreds of thousands of dollars illegally funneled through an Arkansas restaurant owner, Charlie Trie, to the Democratic National Committee during the Clinton administration.
Where there is smoke there is fire. I believe this is the shot over the bow for the Clintons.
