“JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Three undercover narcotics officers in Florida have been suspended and charged with evidence tampering after authorities say three beer cans were removed from their vehicle the night one of them fatally shot a man during an attempted drug buy.
Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said during a news conference Thursday that the shooting remains under review, but an attempted robbery that prompted the Feb. 6 shooting of 22-year-old Jerome Keith Allen appeared to have happened, and wasn’t made up. The sheriff identified the officers as Brian Turner, Kyle Kvies and Lance Griffis. It wasn’t clear which one shot Allen.
Williams says no blood tests were conducted after the shooting, because there was initially no evidence of alcohol being involved.”
“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 footage provided exclusively to DailyMail.com, Johnny Chung spills details on how he illegally funneled money from Chinese officials to Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election bid.
The Chinese-American Clinton fundraiser recorded the ‘elaborate videotaped testimony’ while in hiding in 2000.
He smuggled it to trusted friends and family with instructions to release it to the media in the event of his untimely death because he believed he was at risk of being assassinated.
Chung is believed to still be alive and living in China.
The video was obtained by author and historian David Wead for his new book Game of Thorns, which traces Hillary Clinton’s unsuccessful 2016 campaign and the Chinese government’s long-running operation to buy political influence in Washington. “
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 comes amid renewed interest in foreign influence in Washington, as some members of President Donald Trump’s team have been scrutinized for their associations with Russian officials.
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.
“A key lawmaker working on an Obamacare replacement insisted Thursday that the healthcare law will be repealed, despite widening skepticism among even Republicans.
“Yeah, it’s gonna happen,” Rep. Mike Burgess, R-Texas, said at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday afternoon.
But Burgess didn’t have an answer when pressed on when Congress will vote to repeal and replace the healthcare law — although he did say it will happen before the next CPAC.
“We will get it done,” he responded simply.
Burgess heads the health subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, one of two House committees working on a replacement to the healthcare law. The plan is to use a budget reconciliation bill to repeal and replace much of the law, but Republicans are still struggling to nail down its details and ensure it will have enough GOP support to pass.
President Trump has promised he will roll out an Obamacare alternative next month, and House Speaker Paul Ryan plans to hold committee markups on the plan, too.
But there’s broad skepticism that Republicans will be able to rally around one plan. Former House Speaker John Boehner predicted Thursday that repeal and replace is “not going to happen.”
