Judicial Watch to ask Court to bring Huang back to testify

Reno\Clinton Coverup Continues With Phony Plea Agreement

(Washington, August 13) Yesterday, in what has now become a routine with the corrupt Clinton Justice Department, John Huang, who even Bob Woodward and The Washington Post called a likely Communist Chinese spy, entered into a plea agreement, in which he gets off "scott free," with only a $10,000 fine and 500 hours of community service.

Huang was uncovered in the fall of 1996, and when he ran from U.S. Marshals trying to serve him with a subpoena in the Judicial Watch case which sparked the Chinagate scandal, his story rose to national prominence. Later, he would testify to Judicial Watch, untruthfully. When Judicial Watch moved the Court to have Huang testify again, and it so ordered, he invoked the Fifth Amendment over 1000 times, leading the widely respected liberal journalist Christopher Hitchens to remark that Huang had established a "new indoor record."

As was true with Huang, thus far the Clinton Justice Department has indicted primarily Chinese, Indonesians, African Americans, and Indians in the Chinagate scandal, to create the appearance of justice. However, they have all been plead out with little to no jail time, with no real commitment to implicate other, high up Clinton-Gore officials. "The Clinton Justice Department is effectively playing the race card, by blaming just a bunch of foreigners and minorities, but not holding them accountable in any event for fear they might implicate the corrupt 'white men in the White House,'" stated Judicial Watch Chairman and General Counsel Larry Klayman. "Judicial Watch will not allow justice to be compromised, and will now ask the Court to bring Huang back again for testimony, as he can no longer even claim that the Fifth Amendment is applicable," added Klayman and Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
