Tuesday on the radio, in light of the redacted Mueller report dropping Thursday, LevinTV host Mark Levin reminded listeners what real foreign influence in an American presidential election looks like.
"I remember there was a time when a foreign government interfered with our election on behalf of a specific candidate. They say Russia interfered on behalf of Trump, they can't demonstrate that. But I remember when the communist Chinese interfered in a federal election to help the Democrats, and to help Bill Clinton. Do you folks remember this? In the 1990s? And the press, other than maybe the L.A. Times and a handful of others, really could care less. And the evidence was everywhere — everywhere. It was an attempt to influence America's presidential election. This time ... It involved the reelection of Bill Clinton for president, and communist China," Levin said.
"Remember how upset the Democrats were, remember all the committee hearings? You don't either? I don't remember a damn thing," Levin said.
Levin read excerpts from an article by Washington Examiner columnist Byron York, and his own upcoming book "Unfreedom of the Press," to remind listeners how Bill Clinton's presidential campaign for reelection in the 1990s was actually funded by the Chinese military, and that former Democratic fundraiser John Huang raised more than $1.5 million from illegal foreign sources, and Chinese officials visited the White House no fewer than 78 times.
"What's this 'What-about-ism'? It's called history. Context is everything. The world didn't begin today," Levin said.
"That was a scandal. Enormous sums of money, pouring into one party, pouring into one candidate, pouring into one defense fund. Testimony under oath, that the Chinese government, specifically the Chinese military, was funding it. You've got none of this in this phony Russia-Trump collusion crap. None of it. You've got nothing," Levin said.
