Huang Implicates Gore, Republicans in Illegal Fund Raising

Tuesday, 07 November 2000 12:00 AM

Huang, who previously worked for the Lippo Group, an alleged front for Chinese intelligence, and was a high official at the Commerce Department during the Clinton-Gore administration, returned to answer questions about his and others' roles in the illegal sale of seats on trade missions in exchange for political campaign contributions.

Court testimony of Nolanda Hill, business partner and confidante of the late Commerce Secretary Ron Brown, established that Hillary Clinton, with the knowledge of President Clinton and Vice President Al Gore, had devised this illegal scheme.

Because Huang now has immunity, he was forced to answer questions without claiming the Fifth Amendment – having previously done so more than 2,000 times over the last four years.

In his testimony Tuesday, Huang implicated Gore in the illegal fund raising, but refused to answer questions he was ordered to answer on at least 131 occasions.

Magistrate Judge John M. Facciola found Huang in contempt of court for these refusals, and if this is sustained by Judge Royce C. Lamberth, Huang could be headed to prison.

In addition, Huang revealed that Congress never questioned him about the Clinton-Gore Commerce Department trade mission scandal.

Huang refused also to answer questions about high-level Republican politicians who reportedly got illegal campaign contributions through him and the Lippo Group. Indeed, Huang implicated about 25 percent of the Thompson Committee, which supposedly investigated Chinagate, in illegal contributions. He also implicated former Sen. Alfonse D’Amato, the Republican who was chairman of the Whitewater Committee.

"Huang’s testimony explains why the Republican Congress never investigated the illegal sale of trade mission seats for campaign contributions," stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

"Huang’s deposition is incomplete and will be reconvened at the end of November. In the meantime, his testimony has regrettably apparently revealed a bipartisan effort to cover up the illegal sale of Commerce Department trade mission seats in exchange for campaign contributions," Fitton said.

"It is a sad day in American history. Our whole system is corrupt," added Judicial Watch Chairman and General Counsel Larry Klayman.
