The headlines of no wrong doing are coming from media outlets that are on the clinton / democratic "payroll". Its up there with NBC having info on the Romanian hacker and deciding to just withhold the info instead of reporting on it because it involves Clinton.

Our media is no longer independent.

Its like the newspaper article about the meeting between the DOJ/FBI and Mills (clintons former chief of staff). in that article they made several claims that deals with direct knowledge of he investigation. They also allowed Hillary to say the FBI was doing a security review and the msm never called her on it. The head of the FBI had to set the record straight that it was a criminal investigation yet the msm is doing all they can to shift focus away from Clinton.

It's sad that some people will fall for the ruse.

The McAuliffe investigation has been ongoing for a year. The FBI does not continue investing resources unless they feel there is a good reason. It's not like this is a two week old investigation where they checked a few things and decided it was ok. They only continue if they have evidence that gives them reasons to continue.

Yup a year and that is leading people to speculate this is part of the fBI investigation into the Clinton foundation, Hillary misusing her office / corruption and illegal campaign contributions. While only a 100,000 + donation was made the the Governor over 2 million was donated to the Clinton foundation.

The Chinese guy violated the law as foreigners are not allowed to donate cash to political campaigns. Ironically enough this guy is also a member of the same group that oversaw donations from Chinese nationals with links to the Chinese government / intelligence services during Bill's campaign. Clinton was investigated for taking illegal contributions during her Senate run and was fined for breaking the law.

The FBI agents assigned to the Clinton Foundation investigation are the same for this investigation.

8 years of the Clinton Clampett's was enough.

All we want is honest candidates willing to put America first and all we keep getting is the cast of Hee Haw.

Nah. This is just more gossip. The chinese guy is a full time resident and because he is rich with money, he has free speech.

He is a Chinese national residing in the US. A resident is not the same as a citizen and only US citizens can vote in elections. Foreign nationals cannot give money to politicians running for office.

We know this because the Clintons did it back in the 90's and 00's for Hillary senate campaign (where she was caught and fined for it).

So no, its not gossip.

I thought that guy's name was Charlie Trie, something along those lines. And he fled the country before being indicted.

How does he get by with this then, registering as a lobbyist:

"Wang and his company have spent big to influence American politics—$1.4 million from 2012 to 2015 to lobby Congress and the State Department, according to CBS’s estimate. And Dandong Port Co., a subsidiary of Rilin Enterprises, has hired former politicos to lobby for its interests, as lobbying disclosure forms show."

Here is an update on the Wang and McAuliffe association. It sounds like Wang is the Chinese equivalent to Soros as far as buying influence but Wang also has deep ties with the Chinese government.

In China, it’s called “guanxi,” translated as “connections” or “relationships.”

“There is a long-standing tradition in Chinese culture and history of building relationships. And money can come into that as well,” said James Mann, a former foreign correspondent for the Los Angeles Times and author of four books on U.S.-China relations who is currently an author-in-residence at Johns Hopkins University. “It can be as benign as cultivating someone who can help get your kid into college to buying them off.”

Wang Wenliang, the Chinese billionaire whose $120,000 in donations in 2013 to Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s campaign and inaugural committee have been identified in news reports as a part of a federal investigation into McAuliffe, has spent much time and money on guanxi in the United States over the past six years.

He made headlines last year when news reports revealed a $2 million donation in 2013 to the Clinton Foundation, the nonprofit run by the political family with deep ties to McAuliffe. The governor is a former Democratic Party chairman, major party fundraiser and board member of the Clinton Global Initiative, part of the foundation.

In 2010, a grant from Rilin launched the Center on U.S.-China Relations at New York University. Two years later, Wang pledged $25 million to support and expand NYU’s Global Network University. He is a member of NYU’s board of trustees and is also a donor and advisory committee member at Harvard University’s Asia Center.

“Mr. Wang, a principal in Dandong Port, is a Chinese-American business leader with interests in ports, real estate, agribusiness and other areas of business. We helped Mr. Wang’s business in 2013 to make the largest purchase of Virginia soybeans in the commonwealth’s history. Mr. Wang has continued to explore other opportunities to invest in the United States over the years and has also supported philanthropic causes here.”

McGuireWoods introduced Wang “to then-private citizen Terry McAuliffe” during the McDonnell administration, Hodges said.

“To the best of my recollection, this occurred shortly after the soybean agreement was announced,” he said.

McAuliffe said Tuesday that he was “not sure he ever met” Wang.

“I know the folks who worked on his company,” he said, insisting the donation is legal in any event because Wang has held a green card since 2007.

McAuliffe added that he and the Clintons “travel in the same circles” and that donors to the Clinton Foundation have been “friends of mine for years and years.”

What all the connections amount to, Mann said, is building influence, but to what purpose?

“Is this simply personal, or is there some purpose related to Chinese intelligence,” he said. “It certainly raises that question.”

He noted that Wang’s work on embassies and in ports require close ties to China’s ruling Communist Party and its security apparatus. Wang has also been a delegate to China’s National People’s Congress, the nation’s “rubber stamp” legislature, Mann said, though he considered that of lesser importance.

“In the last 10 or 15 years, as China’s businesses have developed, the party has shown greater tolerance of people rising in business who aren’t party members. But even if you’re not a party member, you have to be on good terms with the party,” he said.

What part of running for office is tripping you up?

By their own admissions on CSPAN interviews, they are always running for office. They are always seeking money. And this Chinese guy has obliged a few of them. I don't care what his status is, he has more influence in the halls of congress than I do, born in the USA.

True, however Hillary has been out of office for some time and she happens to running for the highest public office we have.

I also seem to remember China having trouble with their ICBM guidance until they happened to be sold our tech at Bill's behest iirc.

China gets away with a lot and those facilitating it do as well.

The Clintons are compromised. We do NOT need that in the White House...ever again.

What they say on C-Span and what the federal law says are 2 different things.

Federal Elections Commission - Foreign Nationals

The ban on political contributions and expenditures by foreign nationals was first enacted in 1966 as part of the amendments to the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), an "internal security" statute. The goal of the FARA was to minimize foreign intervention in U.S. elections by establishing a series of limitations on foreign nationals. These included registration requirements for the agents of foreign principals and a general prohibition on political contributions by foreign nationals. In 1974, the prohibition was incorporated into the Federal Election Campaign Act (the FECA), [HTML] [PDF] giving the Federal Election Commission (FEC) jurisdiction over its enforcement and interpretation.

This brochure has been developed to help clarify the rules regarding the political activity of foreign nationals; however, it is not intended to provide an exhaustive discussion of the election law. If you have any questions after reading this, please contact the FEC in Washington, D.C., at 1-800-424-9530 or 202-694-1100. Members of the press should contact the FEC Press Office at 202-694-1220 or at the toll free number listed above.

Except where otherwise noted, all citations refer to the Act and FEC regulations. Advisory Opinions (AOs) issued by the Commission are also cited.
The Prohibition

The Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) prohibits any foreign national from contributing, donating or spending funds in connection with any federal, state, or local election in the United States, either directly or indirectly. It is also unlawful to help foreign nationals violate that ban or to solicit, receive or accept contributions or donations from them. Persons who knowingly and willfully engage in these activities may be subject to fines and/or imprisonment.
Who is a Foreign National?

The following groups and individuals are considered "foreign nationals" and are, therefore, subject to the prohibition:

Foreign governments;
Foreign political parties;
Foreign corporations;
Foreign associations;
Foreign partnerships;
Individuals with foreign citizenship; and
Immigrants who do not have a "green card."

Domestic Subsidiaries and Foreign-Owned Corporations

A U.S. subsidiary of a foreign corporation or a U.S. corporation that is owned by foreign nationals may be subject to the prohibition, as discussed below.
PAC Contributions for Federal Activity

A domestic subsidiary of a foreign corporation may not establish a federal political action committee (PAC) to make federal contributions if:

The foreign parent corporation finances the PAC's establishment, administration, or solicitation costs; or
Individual foreign nationals:
Participate in the operation of the PAC;
Serve as officers of the PAC;
Participated in the selection of persons who operate the PAC; or
Make decisions regarding PAC contributions or expenditure. 11 CFR 110.20(i).
(See also AOs 2000-17, 1995-15, 1990-8, 1989-29, and 1989-20.)

"What they say on C-Span and what the federal law says are 2 different things."

We certainly agree on that. So, that would make the whole bunch criminals, not just the Clinton's. Maybe this has opened a whole can of worms that was not intended.

I can't seem to get who is under investigation. The Clinton's, the foundation, Wang or MCauliffe?

Thank you for the information, I will study up on it. But, simply put, the status does not seem to matter, there are ways for them to get to politicians. Can foreigners be registered lobbyists?
