The direct link between Beijing espionage, millionaire drug
lords and Bill Clinton is Webster Hubbell. In 1993, Webster
Hubbell was personally charged by Janet Reno with a top-secret
project to tap every phone in America. Hubbell’s initial task
was to tap every phone in the government, starting with the
Drug Enforcement Administration.
This month, the Department of Justice was forced by the Freedom
of Information Act (FOIA) to release the Hubbell files. According to
Justice, many of the Hubbell documents are being withheld for “national
security” reasons. In addition, 15 Hubbell documents remain in the hands
of the FBI and National Security Agency to be reviewed prior to any
According to the NSA, FBI and the National Security Council, the
Hubbell files are so sensitive that to release them today could result
in charges of treason and the death penalty. The newly released Hubbell
files are so secret that even the code word classification level was
blacked out for “national security” reasons.
Furthermore, Justice was forced to admit that a 1993 letter from AT&T
CEO Robert Allen to Hubbell was “destroyed pursuant to the records
destruction schedules.” This in itself is highly suspect because this
author has obtained documents dating as far back as 1983 that were
returned by the NSC — over 10 years prior to the “destroyed” AT&T
One document released by Justice is a March 1993 memo from Stephen
Colgate, assistant attorney general for administration. Colgate’s memo
to Hubbell details the Clinton officials charged with bugging every
phone in America.
According to the Colgate memo, Vice President Al Gore was to chair a
meeting with Hubbell, Reno, Commerce Secretary Ron Brown and Leon
Panetta. The meeting was on the “AT&T Telephone Security Device.”
In 1992, AT&T had developed secure telephones the U.S. government
could not tap. The Clinton administration secretly contracted with AT&T
to keep the phones off the American market. According to Colgate, the
secure phones were simply too dangerous for American citizens.
Colgate wrote to Hubbell: “AT&T has developed a Data Encryption
Standard (DES) product for use on telephones to provide security for
sensitive conversations. The FBI, NSA and NSC want to purchase the first
production run of these devices to prevent their proliferation. They are
difficult to decipher and are a deterrent to wiretaps.”
In 1993, Hubbell was personally tasked with the project by Reno and
Clinton. Hubbell arranged for the entire production run of secure AT&T
phones to be secretly purchased by Justice, using a slush fund supplied
by confiscations from the “drug war” to keep the buy off the general
Part of the secret project included re-fitting the purchased AT&T
phones with a new chip called “Clipper” developed by the NSA at Fort
Meade, Maryland. This chip contained a secret “exploitable” feature
allowing the government to tap the phone conversation with a special
back door key.
The project also included plans to “mandate” the Clipper chip be
installed in all American telephones. According to the March 1993
Colgate memo to Hubbell, “FBI, NSA and NSC want to push legislation
which would require all government agencies and eventually everyone in
the U.S. to use a new public-key based cryptography method.”
The re-fitted Clipper phones were to be given to the DEA for their
line agents to use. According to a 1993 classified White House e-mail
from George Tenet, “Ron Brown” insisted the Commerce Dept. be one of the
“key holders” for all Clipper phones. Thus, Commerce and Ron Brown
demanded direct access to tap any phone in America.
According to highly classified documents, Hubbell received a letter
from AT&T’s Allen in October of 1993. The AT&T letter, according to
Justice, was “destroyed.” However, the “control data sheet,” a summary
of the AT&T letter to Hubbell, survived.
According to the data sheet, Allen wanted the Clinton administration
to allow AT&T to distribute a limited version of their secure phone
until the government Clipper project was ready.
One document returned from the files of Hubbell was so classified
that five pages are currently being withheld by the NSA, FBI and NSC for
“national security” reasons. The top-secret cover page even has the
classified code word blacked out by the NSA.
The document, a top-secret January 1994 memo to Janet Reno from
Mark Richard, deputy assistant attorney general, describes a classified
“principles” meeting of an “NSC chaired Inter-Agency Working Group.”
The Hubbell files show that in 1994 the soon-to-be felon met with
Gore, Brown, NSA Director McConnell and White House power broker, John
Podesta. The files show Hubbell met in late January 1994 at “the White
House Situation Room” on secret presidential orders such as “PDD-5” and
“PRD-27.” The 1994 secret meeting included details on the Clipper
project and “Podesta Alternative Draft Legislation.”
John Podesta’s brother, Tony Podesta, is the owner of Podesta
Associates, a D.C.-based lobby firm. In 1994, Podesta Associates
represented a dozen major donors to Bill Clinton, including AT&T. Many
DNC/Podesta Associates donors, including AT&T, obtained trade trips to
Beijing and valuable export deals with China.
According to documents obtained from the Commerce Department, Tony
Podesta obtained classified encryption briefings for his lobby group
inside the White House. The computer companies, including Apple, AT&T,
Digital, Cray, Unisys and Silicon Graphics, are called the Computer
Systems Policy Project (CSPP). In 1994, the CSPP was represented by the
brother of White House power broker John Podesta.
In 1993, White House employee John Podesta was also charged by Bill
Clinton with making encryption policy. The Hubbell documents clearly
show that in 1994 John and Tony were working the same subject, at the
same time, and in the same place.
According to congressional investigators, in 1993 John Podesta signed
a legal statement in which he promised not to engage in any conflict of
interest with his brother Tony Podesta. In 1997, according to White
House lawyers, John Podesta was absolved of any conflict with his
brother by President Clinton.
In April of 1994, Hubbell resigned from the Justice Department under
allegations of fraud. By late June 1994, Lippo boss James Riady met with
John Huang, Webster Hubbell and Bill Clinton during five days of White
House visits. Early the next week, a Lippo unit paid Hubbell the first
$100,000 of what is reported to be over a half million dollars.
In December 1994, Hubbell pled guilty to several felony charges
relating to illegal billing in the Whitewater affair. Webster Hubbell
also cited his Fifth Amendment rights to not testify before the Senate
Two weeks after the Lippo money was given to Hubbell, John Huang got
his job at the Commerce Department as assistant secretary. Huang’s
position determined technology transfers that went to places such as
Indonesia and Communist China. Huang and his wife have both taken the
Fifth Amendment and refused to testify at Senate hearings.
DNC fundraiser, former Lippo banker and Commerce employee Huang was
briefed 37 times on encryption communications by the CIA while working
at the Brown-controlled Commerce Department. Immediately after each
briefing, Huang would walk across the street to the Lippo/Stephens Group
offices and make long-distance phone calls and send faxes to points
In 1994, Podesta Associates client, AT&T, sold military-grade secure
communications systems directly to the Chinese army under the guise of a
“commercial” sale. The export, called “Hua Mei,” included encryption
computer source code, enabling the Chinese army to change their secret
code systems at will.
The secure military-grade export left America with the full blessing
of Bill Clinton. Hua Mei is one of many such military-grade systems
exported to directly into the hands of the generals in Beijing by Mr.
Clinton gave the PLA military-grade secure communications while
secretly working to keep the same secure communications from the
American public. Chinese generals now communicate with complete
security, locking out U.S. military intelligence monitoring, thanks to
The Clinton policy is far more than a paradox. It clearly shows that
Bill Clinton trusts Chinese communist generals more than any American
The Department of Justice co-operation with the Chinese government
includes more than secure systems for the PLA. Clinton authorized the
Chinese army information warfare lab LOIS (Laboratory of Information
Security) to obtain designs with “exploitable” features similar to the
Clipper chip. The transfer took place under the guise of “law
enforcement” in cooperation between Justice and the Chinese police.
Bill Clinton and Janet Reno have given the Communists the ability to
track every Chinese citizen using advanced chip technology and
backdoor-like recovery systems. The digital chains of a modern police
state to enslave millions of Chinese citizens — made in the U.S.A.
American technology, shipped with the personal OK of both President
Clinton and Janet Reno.
The Clinton administration is also trying to duplicate Communist
powers here in America. Every Justice Department move to establish new
computer tracking systems and expand wire-tapping to millions of phones
is another abuse of power. They want to monitor every American 24 hours
a day and make it a crime to prevent illegal monitoring.
According to the 1996 report to Gore by CIA Director John Deutch,
Reno proposed an all-out federal take-over of the computer industry. The
Justice Department, proposed “legislation that would … ban the import
and domestic manufacture, sale or distribution of encryption that does
not have key recovery.”
The White House, Justice and the Clipper project were all penetrated
by agents of the Chinese army. Reno is covering up the penetration.
Hubbell was Clinton’s man in Justice and Janet Reno’s right hand man.
Hubbell knows more than enough about Chinese espionage operatives with
Bill Clinton to fill a novel. Reno continues to cover it all up and keep
the investigation of herself entirely under her command.
The attempt by the PLA to obtain secret access to DEA phones clearly
illustrates the close-knit intelligence/crime syndicate operating inside
the White House. One does not need much imagination to wonder why drug
lords such as Democratic national Committee donor Ng Lapseng would want
to monitor the DEA.
DEA agents and all Americans, however, can take no solace in Reno’s
reluctance to look into the penetration of their phones by agents of the
Chinese Army. They need look no further than the photo of drug lord Ng
with Bill and Hillary Clinton to wonder why.
