Chinagate: National Security Breached?
Posted October 23, 1998
While the Clinton White House is attempting to limit the scope of the impeachment investigation to the Lewinsky affair only, the House Judiciary Committee will proceed with a broad-based inquiry that includes what is being referred to as "Chinagate." The committee will investigate whether U.S. national security was breached by the Clinton administration in its efforts to raise money for the Democratic National Committee. As the evidence of guilt comes forth, questions of treason by the President and his cohorts must be addressed.
Lord of Hosts, we pray for further EXPOSURE of the crimes and misdemeanors of the Clinton White House. May those things done in the dark be EXPOSED to the light of Christ (Lk 8:17). We ask WISDOM and COURAGE be given to the members of Congress (1Ki 3:11; Job 34:17). May they do what is right in Your sight and not just what seems best to them (Ps 7:7; Ps 9:8, 16). 'When justice is done, it brings joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers (Pr 21:15)'. Therefore, let Your JUSTICE be done and may this nation return once again to her Creator and Judge. AMEN!
- Judicial Watch, the non-profit judicial "watchdog" group, submitted its own interim impeachment report on Monday, September 28, 1998, to the House Judiciary Committee. This interim report details substantial and credible evidence of impeachable offenses committed by the Clinton White House. These offenses include Filegate, Chinagate and other related Clinton-Gore scandals. (The interim report can be found at Judicial Watch's web site: http://www.judicialwatch.org/)
- The Clinton administration's fundraising may have breached national security via Commerce Department political appointees and others implicated in the fundraising schemes, such as John Huang, Johnny Chung and Charlie Trie. As the Clinton Commerce Department was lifting export restrictions on sensitive U.S. technology, the Chinese were simultaneously funneling large sums of money into the Democratic National Committee's coffers.
- Over the past five years, Clinton has personally supervised "one of the most sweeping relaxations of export restrictions in American history" (New York Times, October 19, 1998). House and Senate committees are looking into the possibility that China took advantage of the looser rules to enhance its military technology.
- Senior U.S. trade officials acknowledge that Clinton decided to change the export rules without an in-depth review by national security experts, even though Central Intelligence Agency analysts warned of the military implications of technology transfers in a 1995 report.
- China Aero-Technology Import Export Company (CATIC), China's largest aerospace company, is a California-based corporation and a major risk to national security, writes Kenneth Timmerman in the October issue of the American Spectator. Timmerman further reports that sales of strategic or dual-use technologies to CATIC have included avionics, guidance kits, and weapons systems to upgrade the F-8 bomber. CATIC has even been permitted to purchase sophisticated production tools used for the B-1 bomber and the F-14 fighter aircraft. Further investigations have uncovered a pipeline of military aircraft spare parts to Iran by Chinese middlemen. Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) navigation systems have shown up in Beijing after being purchased in California by CATIC. Intelligence analysts have determined that the Chinese are successfully integrating GPS systems into their ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and new military jets - some of which are then sold to Iran. All of this has been done with the blessing of the Clinton Administration.
