A Chinese millionaire accused of providing foreign money in a campaign finance scandal during the Clinton administration has been arrested by the FBI, ABC reports.  [2]

The FBI arrested Ng Lap Seng last weekend on charges that he lied about the reason he brought more than $4.5 million in cash to the U.S. over the past two years.

A criminal complaint alleges the prominent real estate developer made a series of trips to the U.S. with a large amount of cash.

The FBI said Ng falsely claimed the cash was for art, gambling or real estate.

The complaint in federal court mentions no current ties to the Clintons, but he was accused in a 1998 Senate report of funneling hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Democratic National Committee during the Clinton administration.
