💰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.

a thread on #DeutscheBank evolution from to and from 'behemoth that relies heavily on global securities markets', and its role in changing German and European macro-finance (from @euromoney archives)
it's 1999, and #DeutscheBank men - sumo wrestlers, "straight out of central casting" - are changing business model to confront more aggressively the US investment banks
investment banking, they argue, will pay for low-returns retail banking (note the irony)

So - #Gold is rallying towards AT - right? Bulls have won! Somebody should send the memo to #Silver. While #Silver normally leads or peaks with Gold - Gold has been on its own spree. Man - I would love to join the Gold Euphoria 😉 Bear Flag - perhaps? #HZupdates
Somebody should also send that memo to #GDX. Notice how GDX bottoms and supports Gold in Bull market. New high in Gold = New High in GDX. Not what we see now! #HZupdates
But....#USD is breaking down as Fed will cut rates.... No - it is not! #DXY is CORRECTING in a clear stairs-like structure. We can see 95 or 94 - perhaps lower. But this is no breakdown #HZupdates

Here's a stupid question for the lawyers on Twitter:

It would appear #DeutscheBank were warned Manchurian Pumpkin and Boy Blunder were doing something hinky, maybe to do with money laundering, back in 2016, before the election, and the execs waved off the warnings.
I could make the argument that this decision meant the average American did not have all the information they needed to vote.

Could someone file a lawsuit against Deutsche Bank over that?
These morons are going to keep jamming up everything tied to Dear Leader in the courts, even though everyone knows they are eventually going to lose, but this wouldn't have anything to do with something they could slow-walk.

It's just John Doe, American voter v. Deutsche Bank.

"In the summer of 2016, #DeutscheBank 's software flagged a series of transactions involving Kushner's real estate company - a review of transactions showed that money had moved from Kushner Companies to Russian individuals"

Months/dates 🤔
"(8/3/16) Payments begin flowing from Embassies:

"60 Russian Payments "To Finance Election Campaign Of 2016"

If true, criminal conspiracy, evading Russia sanctions

“Illict activity”- you don’t say. #Deutschebank@Amy_Siskindnytimes.com/2019/05/19/bus… via ⁦@nytimes
“The transactions, some of which involved Mr. Trump’s now-defunct foundation, set off alerts in a computer system designed to detect illicit activity, according to five current and former bank employees.”
“Compliance staff members who then reviewed the transactions prepared so-called suspicious activity reports that they believed should be sent to a unit of the Treasury Department that polices financial crimes.”

Looks like they got some of the receipts! German police raided 11 banks for records on 8 #Deutschebank customers, 6 of their homes, 4 tax accountants & 6 wealth managers! #ButNothingsHappening ft.com/content/835b54…
In other words, since they got raided in November, Deutsche Bank has been handing over the receipts to save their own skins!
Shady banking units in tax havens, shell companies, accountants & wealth managers. The usual roles for off-shore tax evasion schemes!
Maybe Germany will be able to pay for it's promised share of NATO defense spending if the Trump DOJ finds them enough Euros in tax evasion cases!

#USDJPY and #Gold have strong inverse relationship. Both have formed triangles since 2015. Now - main direction will continue. USDJPY towards ~154 - and Gold towards ~800 USD #HZupdates
#Gold did bottom in 2015 - but only for a bounce! A "ZigZag-pattern" is defined by A-B-C waves. A from 2011-15 = 5 waves. B from 2015-19 = Triangle (abcde). Now 5 waves down in wave C. Decline may be very strong! #HZupdates

Who is Deutsche Bank’s largest shareholder?

This should not be a difficult question and, at first, the answer seems straightforward: China’s HNA Group.
But, anyone with even a cursory interest in the deeply unusual Chinese company will realise things are a little bit more complicated than that.

L'info #breaking de la nuit US. Le président #Trump et ses enfants attaquent devant le tribunal fédéral de Manhattan les banques Deutsche Bank et Capital One pour les empêcher de répondre aux assignations de la Chambre démocrate sur leurs états financiers. fr.scribd.com/document/40811…
2) La plainte des #Trump est très intéressante en ce qu'elle s'appuie juridiquement sur la remise en cause du pouvoir d'enquête du Congrès que le président et ses enfants estiment ici sans motif législatif, donc infondé. La guerre aux contre-pouvoirs est bien déclarée.
3) Toute l'argumentation de #Trump tourne autour de l'arrêt Watkins de 1957 de la #CourSuprême qui a établi que le Congrès a des pouvoirs d'enquête larges MAIS pas infinis, ET qu'il doit justifier la publication de données privées par 1 motif "légitime". supreme.justia.com/cases/federal/…

Uproar!!!

📌Mueller report will be released in the afternoon, lightly redacted, revealing detailed look at O of J probe.

📌Barr & Rosenstein will give a press conf & deliver the partisan Barr Report 2.0 at 9:30am edt

📌Mueller not invited.
💣MuellerEve2💣

DOJ will present MR w/out certain redactions available to certain members of Congress/staff "in an appropriate setting."

Barr briefed & had numerous convos w/ WH re MR so they had time to strategize & prep a rebuttal while withholding it from American public.
💣MuellerEve3💣

The delay was necessary so Trump’s lawyers could strategize & prepare the rebuttal & control the narrative ahead of public release.

Nadler is deeply troubled to hear the WH was briefed abt the MR b/4 congress or the American people.
