China has the United States right where it wants it – compromised Democrats in control of the House and Senate plus a president who has been taking China’s money for years. China’s experience taught them that many American politicians could be bought cheap. The Chinese Communist Party had been funneling millions to the Biden family for years, and now its potential payoff is at hand.
This week the Director of National Intelligence released a report that stated:
“The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will continue its whole-of-government efforts to spread China’s influence, undercut that of the United States, drive wedges between Washington and its allies and partners, and foster new international norms that favor the authoritarian Chinese system.”
Few people in the West understand the extent to which China has compromised the Democrat Party. There are occasional reports about those such as Eric Swalwell, the California Democrat who sits on the House Intelligence Committee who was caught in a multi-year relationship with a Chinese spy, but the problem is even more pervasive than that. In fact, China’s rapid military expansion can be traced back to Bill Clinton’s first term as president.
In 1992, while Governor Bill Clinton was campaigning for president, he ridiculed President Bush for being soft on what he called “the butchers of Beijing.”
“In China, the president continues to coddle aging rulers with undisguised contempt for democracy, for human rights, and for the need to control the spread of dangerous weapons technologies,” Clinton said of George H. W. Bush.
What no one knew at that moment was that Bill Clinton had sent an emissary named Charlie (Yah Lin) Trie to communist China with a personal letter and a message from him that he would invest in China if China would invest in him.
This reporter exclusively obtained a videotape of a meeting Trie had with officials from China. The tape was obtained from a state official who was on the trip. On the tape, a Clinton associate is heard saying:
“His policy for China could be influenced certainly by people sitting at this table.”
Trie then tells the Chinese officials that Bill Clinton wants to invest in China and then translates the response from the officials.
“He wants to invest in China, so he knows … they said they can set up Bill Clinton with China, it will be a pleasure.”

So, while Clinton was attacking President Bush for being soft on China, he was secretly making backroom deals with the “butchers of Beijing” who had already begun laundering illegal campaign donations to Clinton’s 1992 campaign through James Riady and the Lippo banking family.
Following Clinton’s inauguration in 1993, he immediately began decontrolling strategic weapons technology for transfer to the People’s Republic of China (PRC). And China rewarded him with even more illegal campaign donations. The technology Clinton decontrolled for China ranged from cryptographic technology which enabled it to spy on the U.S. to missile technology that increased the accuracy of ballistic missiles China has aimed at the U.S.
Clinton was not the only politician compromised by China. The PRC pumped millions of dollars into the Democrat National Committee through straw donors, many of whom had no money of their own.
When Republican lawmakers discovered what China had done, congress launched multiple investigations. The House and Senate, both controlled by Republicans, held hearings that revealed massive evidence of corruption in the 1992 and 1996 elections including several Chinese intelligence operations that funneled money to Clinton and to the Democrat Party. Many Democrats who sat on the investigative committees undermined those investigations and attacked defense department technology experts who alerted Congress to what the Clinton administration was doing. Democrats on the committees went to great lengths to smear the whistle-blowers in an attempt to discredit their testimony and intimidate other witnesses.
Among the Democrats undermining the investigation were Sen. Dick Durbin, Sen Chuck Schumer, and then-Sen Joe Biden. Absent was any outrage over “election interference” by Democrats who years later feigned disgust over a phony Trump – Russia collusion narrative.
Now the PRC has a world-class military, navy, and a vast web of spies positioned around the globe. The Chinese Communist Party wants to be the world’s primary super-power and intends to manage the decline of the U.S. in order to accomplish its objective. What a time to have a president who is fat with Chinese cash and a congress with its own China ties to hide. We may see the full reckoning of the past 28 years soon.
