Bill Clinton and Al Gore weren’t the only Democrats taking cash from Chinese nationals with military or intelligence connections:
Senator John Kerry, D-MA, unwittingly tried to help a Chinese espionage agent and arms dealer in 1996 in return for campaign contributions for his Senate reelection campaign, according to congressional and other documents, interviews, and photographs. [snip] “Who is Colonel Liu?” asked William Triplett, a former Senate Foreign Relations Committee staffer and author of two books on Chinese influence in US politics. “She began her military intelligence career with Chinese Navy intelligence. She has been, in succession, assistant to the President of the China National Precision Machinery Import-Export Corporation and the China Great Wall Industries Corporation, both of whom have been sanctioned twice — in 1991 and 1993 — by the United States for ballistic missiles sales to Pakistan. She later became president of China Aerospace Industrial Holdings Ltd. and she made illegal campaign contributions to the Clinton Gore ticket and John Kerry in 1996.
“She is a communist,? says Triplett; she is a high-tech spy; she is an arms broker and she met Bill Clinton at a fund raiser and John Kerry in his Senate office.”
Kerry’s quest for cash is disturbing, but perhaps moreso is the fact that Kerry is supposedly a “policy wonk, noted for his expertise in international crime, arms and drug dealing, and intelligence.”
Shouldn’t he have known? Or maybe he did, but wanted the money so badly that he didn’t care.
