💰1MDB Global Scandal💰

What is 1MDB?

Short for 1Malaysia Development Berhad (which means limited), the fund was set up in 2009 by then-Prime Minister Najib Razak to invest government revenues in real estate

MAIN THREAD #1MDB
Questions arose in early 2015 when the fund failed to meet payments on $11 billion in debt.

🔑The WSJ then published documents showing that about $700M from 1MDB-linked entities had ended up in Najib’s personal bank accounts just before elections in 2013.
latimes.com/world/la-fg-ma…
By far the largest transactions that flowed into Malaysian PM Najib’s accounts were two deposits of $620M & $61M in March 2013, during a heated election campaign in Malaysia.

Republican Senator: Dmytro #Firtash "earned millions while fighting extradition to U.S.

Dmytro Firtash has been under indictment in Chicago since 2014. He was also involved in a failed business deal w/ex-Trump campaign chair Paul #Manafort." #Bvlgari

nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna1…
"Sen Roger Wicker, R-MS, wrote in an 4/18 letter obtained by NBC News that #Firtash had served as a "direct agent of the Kremlin" and was using the money earned from ONGOING "corruption" to delay his extradition to Chicago, where he has been under federal indictment since 2014."
Ahem:

"Firtash was indicted in 2014 for...his role in bribing INDIAN officials in order to get a lucrative mining deal to sell titanium to BOEING. He was arrested in Vienna in 3/14, released on $174 MILLION bail, and has been contesting his extradition to the U.S. ever since."

😎Espionage😎

WikiLeaks Founder JAssange Charged With 18 New Counts including violating the espionage act.

Anyone “publishing” anything on a website does not make one a “Journalist.”

#AttorneyGeneral Barr is working to review the techniques used to investigate Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Here are 10 key questions that remain to be answered in the scandal that has become known as #Spygate (Thread 👇):

Commentary by @JasperFakkert theepochtimes.com/spygate-origin…
1. What was the role that @CIA and John Brennan’s ‘Interagency Task Force’ played?

Former CIA Director Brennan admitted that he passed intelligence received from the #UK on the Trump campaign to the @FBI with the intention of having them investigate it:
“It served as the basis…
… for the FBI investigation to determine whether such collusion [or] cooperation occurred.”

Notably, Brennan met with then-head of the #UK #Spy agency @GCHQ, Robert Hannigan, in #Washington in 2016. The meeting was unusual, since Hannigan’s US equivalent…

While #Mueller concluded there was no evidence of #RussianCollusion from the Trump campaign, some of the key people in creating the narrative have ties to #Ukraine. theepochtimes.com/ties-to-ukrain…
Both the @DNC as well as #FusionGPS—the company hired by the #DNC and the #ClintonCampaign to research the Trump campaign—were using #Ukrainian sources in their efforts to discredit Trump.

Serhiy #Leshchenko, a member of the #Ukraine's Parliament, was a common thread involved…
… in Democratic opposition research efforts into former Trump campaign Chairman #PaulManafort.

#Leshchenko, along with Artem #Sytnyk, was responsible for publicly disclosing the contents of the #Ukrainian “black ledger,” which implicated #Manafort, to the media.

Le #breaking GOAT😉 de la nuit US. Le procureur spécial #Mueller a ÉCRIT au ministre de la Justice #Barr pour lui dire que son relevé de conclusions sur son enquête ne correspondait pas à son rapport sur #Trump. Retournement massif. washingtonpost.com/world/national…
2) Dans cette lettre, #Mueller accuse nommément #Barr d'avoir semé la confusion dans le public avec ses conclusions sur #Trump qui "ne capturent pas pleinement le contexte, la nature et la substance du rapport et de ses conclusions" (#verbatim)
3) D'après le @washingtonpost, dans 1 entretien téléphonique postérieur- mais attention, là, sources indirectes- à la lettre, #Mueller ne reproche pas à #Barr de mentir mais d'avoir présenté des conclusions égarant le public et les médias quant à l'obstruction de #Trump.

New evidence suggests #Ukraine played a key role in creating Trump-#RussianCollusion narrative at the behest of @BarackObama officials
theepochtimes.com/joe-biden-obam…
As #Ukraine underwent dramatic changes in 2014, then-VP @JoeBiden played a critical role in the @BarackObama admin’s involvement in the revolution that ousted #Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych.

Following the revolution, Biden would use his influence to help force the…
… creation of the troubled National Anti-Corruption Bureau (NABU). Notably, during the 2016 elections information leaked from NABU on Trump’s campaign manager #PaulManafort that helped to create the false #RussianCollusion narrative.

What I do not understand from the #MuellerReport is how Mueller could have avoided claiming that the Trump campaign manager, Paul #Manafort, pursued conspiracy with the Russian military intelligence, GRU.
1. The #MuellerReport (p. 129) states that Manafort stayed in touch throughout the campaign the campaign with Konstantin Kilimnik "a longtime Manafort employee... who the FBI assesses to have ties to Russian intelligence." We know he was GRU all along. Why not write that?
2. "Manafort instructed Rick Gates," the deputy Trump campaign manager, "to provide Kilimnik with updates on the Trump Campaign-including internal polling date" That is Manafort passed on the Trump campaign's most secret data regularly to the Russian intelligence, GRU.

1) #GregoryCraig was Obama's White House Counsel. He was recently indicted for crimes relating to his Ukraine work with #PaulManafort. Now is a good time to look at Craig's career after he helped would-be Reagan assassin John Hinckley get off on an insanity plea.
2) After defending Hinckley, #GregoryCraig was Senator Ted #Kennedy's top foreign policy, defense, & national security advisor from 1984-88. Kennedy, who not been notably active on these issues before, suddenly made defense & national security his top issues.
3) Since the late 1970s, Senator #Kennedy had courted the Soviet #KGB for favors, via a cutout, former senator John Tunney (D-CA), and an Soviet agent David Karr. Russian journalist Yevgenia Albats wrote about this in her book, The State Within A State. amazon.com/State-Within-R…

Lisez et relisez cette phrase (et le passage souligné en rouge) sur la campagne #Trump et la #Russie du rapport #Mueller, elle revient 2 fois dans les 15 premières pages. De la notion de "collusion" qui est d'ailleurs aussi beaucoup discutée dans les 1ères pages. #teasing
2) Après le résumé du volume 1 sur 7 pages, dont le texte précédent page 5 est extrait, le rapport #Muller narre d'abord ses découvertes sur l'opération de déstabilisation de l'élection US 2016 par l'IRA de Prigozhin, proche de #Poutine, sur les réseaux sociaux.
3) Cette partie très caviardée sur l'ingérence de l'IRA russe sur les réseaux sociaux conclut clairement: l'IRA de Prigozhin viola les lois US contre l'influence étrangère des campagnes mais les campagnes locales de #Trump contactées par l'IRA ignoraient l'origine russe (page 35)

Why‘s @KimDotcom so pro-#China? Why‘s @Snowden not critical of #Beijing? There seems to be a red thread tying both to #HongKong. Of that clique, only @WikiLeaks#Assange has been vocally anti-#CCP. Now, after #INAPapers show @Lenin was bribed by China’s #Sinohidro, he’s gagged.
… another oddity at the nexus of the #Ecuador/#UK/#Assange standoff: #Manafort was lobbying on behalf of #China’s efforts to “invest” in Ecuador’s grid & “trade” Assange. Now we find out from #INAPapers that Presidenté #Moreno was bribed by #Sinohydro. 🤔
… is it possible that #China’s man, #Manafort, was working a multipartite deal — b/t #China/#Ecuador/#UK/#USA — to trade #WikiLeaks#Assange, possibly working bilaterally so as to keep each of the counterparties in the dark about the “full deal?”

“Win-win-win-win” cooperation?
