Stories of a Clinton death list have circulated online for years, but a Chinese-American businessman at the center of the infamous “Chinagate” scandal truly believed the Clintons would send a squad of assassins after him.
Johnny Chung, a Clinton fundraiser who was convicted of illegally funneling money from Chinese officials to the 1996 re-election campaign of Bill Clinton, filmed a secret, tell-all video in 2000 as an “insurance policy”in the event of his assassination, according to London’s Daily Mail.
He gave the secret footage to his friends and family, telling them to give it to the media if he turned up dead.
Chung, who is reportedly alive and living in China, was a top player in the mid-1990s “Chinagate” scandal. He was accused of contributing more than $300,000 to the Democratic National Committee on behalf of China’s military intelligence agency. Chung visited the White House 57 times in just two years, mostly with Hillary or her staff, and eight of his visits were “off the books.” During one visit, he personally gave a $50,000 check to Hillary’s chief of staff, Maggie Williams.
