New reports indicate that a fundraiser for the Clintons made a tell-all tape about his illegal activities for fear that he’d fall victim to an assassination attempt.
Johnny Chung was convicted of funneling illegal contributions to the 1996 Clinton-Gore campaign as well as the re-election campaign of John Kerry that same year.
The Daily Mail obtained video of Chung spilling details on his activities because he believed a “squad of assassins” was hunting him down.
Via the Daily Mail:
A Chinese-American businessman at the center of a Clinton campaign finance scandal secretly filmed a tell-all video as an ‘insurance policy’ – because he feared being murdered.
In the never-before-released footage, Chung described how he feared for his life after he publicly admitted to funneling money from Chinese officials to President Bill Clinton’s 1996 reelection campaign.
He also claimed Democrats pressured him to stay silent about his dealings with the Clintons and said the FBI tried to enlist him in a sting against a top Chinese general at a Los Angeles airport.
The video grew out of a controversy in the mid-1990s when evidence surfaced that Chinese officials were pouring hundreds of thousands into then president Bill Clinton’s reelection campaign through American straw donors.
Chung, one of the main players in the ‘Chinagate’ scandal, was accused of giving over $300,000 to the Democratic National Committee on behalf of the head of China’s military intelligence agency during Clinton’s reelection bid.

Chung said that he feared the same fate as former Commerce Secretary under President Clinton, who died in a plane crash in Croatia.
Here is a picture of Chung along with the Clintons, personally signed by Hillary:
There were also claims that Chung previously endured three other attempts on his life.
Chung friend Bob Abernethy said, “His concern about his safety was understandable, given that there had been three attempts on his life which required FBI protection… and given his knowledge of what happened to people such as Ron Brown.”
Chung, according to the report, is believed to still be alive and living in China.
