NOT A NEW PROBLEM: The Clintons and Foreign Money

The scandal surrounding the Clinton Foundation and the donations it received from abroad appears to be just another scandal (although it could be the death blow for Hillary Clinton’s Presidential ambitions). However, this is not the first time there has been a scandal involving the Clintons and a foreign entity.

According to Robert “Buzz” Patterson’s book Dereliction of Duty: The Eyewitness Account of How Bill Clinton Compromised America’s National Security, in 1998 it was revealed that the Chinese had access to information on America’s most advanced thermonuclear warheads from the Department of Energy’s laboratories. Such access included the sale of a supercomputer designed to undergo national security missions. The individual who bought the supercomputer was a Chinese citizen known for sending advanced American technology to Beijing. This sale was just one of many transactions in which the Clinton Administration was selling advanced technology to China.

The profits from these sales would be used for Clinton’s re-election campaign in 1996. And according to the website Discover the Networks, the Clinton re-election campaign took donations from various Chinese citizens, including some of its intelligence agents. In addition, the Clinton Administration let defense contractors sell technology to China, as well as permitting private companies to help the Chinese modernize its nuclear capabilities. As a result, China is now capable of successfully launching a conventional or nuclear attack against the United States.

But the deals with the Chinese are just some of the national security issues created by the Clinton Administration. Clinton’s Secretary of Energy Hazel O’Leary (an anti-nuclear activist) declassified eleven million pages of military data in order to “level the playing field” in regards to military capability. She also did away with security policies at the Department of Energy’s nuclear laboratories, in which people from non-friendly countries (e.g. China, Iran) could have access to such facilities.

Meanwhile, the Clinton Administration struck a deal with North Korea in 1994. Under the terms of the deal, the United States would give the North Koreans two light water nuclear reactors and annual supply of 500,000 metric tons of oil. In return, the North Koreans would dismantle their nuclear weapons within a ten-year period. However, the North Koreans did not carry out their end of the deal, and North Korea would become a rogue state with nuclear weapons.

In conclusion, the Clintons should not be charged with just bribery and corruption, they should be charged with treason, because they have put America (and the rest of the world for that matter) in danger.
