Arrest warrants issued for 2 Petrosaudi directors & Jho Low in #1MDB scandal.

Wonder when media is going to notice Jho Lho lead a group that is going to prison for illegal donations to Obama & Hillary?
Obaid & Mahony were also involvedin paying security & pr firms to run cover & harass journalists into not coving the stories. One of their contractors handles ‘financial security’ for the Vatican.

Obaid is the Kevin Bacon of global corruption, he’s within a few degrees of separation & connected to every Swampy player on the planet.

Here’s another point from Nunes’ interview that I completely forgot about. H/t to @DawsonSField who never seems to forget anything.

Nunes mentioned there were Mifsud links to Saudi Arabia floating around, but then discounted those links.

However.......
Well, look at this. I had no idea that MCCabe also worked on the #1MDB scandal.

Under the settlement with U.S. prosecutors, Jho Low, relinquishes claims to assets that were seized by U.S. beginning in 2016.

The settlement would also allow millions of dollars in fees to be paid to Low’s legal team. #1MDB

🛎QuidProQuo3🛎

Pence said he had "no objection" to releasing a transcript, but adm is divided on whether it could help or hurt Trump's cause.

Vindman will say that he views his testimony as an act of patriotism, because he saw Trump’s corrupt conduct as damaging to US NatSec.

6 people are currently on trial in France in the #KarachiAffair related to a vast bribery and arms sales scandal, including Thierry Gaubert, who was a former aide to then Budget Minister Nicolas Sarkozy (who later went on to become President of France).

asiasentinel.com/econ-business/…
Former French Prime Minister Edouard Balladur is also going to face trial, though separately, because bribes were allegedly used to fund Balladur's then Presidential campaign.
This is another case with lots of "unexplained" dead people, including a lead attorney.

This article is about #China influence in the US, but it's also a handy list of many of the swamp players who tried, and FAILED, to bribe Trump & the Trump admin into dropping the #1MDB investigation & send an exile/whistleblower back to China.

Not mentioned in the above article is Roger Stone, who helped smear Guo Wengui on InfoWars. He said that Sam Nunberg wanted him to do it.

Guo sued Stone for defamation & Stone settled it out of court and admitted that he lied about him.

Malaysia'strying recover over $950M that was siphoned from #1MDB subsidiary SRC International, which looks to me like another #GreenScam.

SRC was originally set up to invest in "energy and renewable resources" yet they transferred $ to offshore Swiss accts and a coal company.
I should clarify that it was a coal exploration company - I didn't have enough room to fit it all above. Not much difference, though.
Here's a good overview of SRC International:

Former Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak got a $12M kickback on a $975M loan from DeutscheBank to #1MDB. #ButNothingsHappening

scmp.com/news/asia/sout…
Timed of course with the announcement that the US is investigating Deutsche Bank for collecting this money as a fund for #1MDB. Investigating them for Foreign Corrupt Pracitce Act (FCPA) violations for paying bribes in the #1MDB transactions!

SO it wasn't exactly a loan, DB raised a $1-1.2 billion investment fund to be put into the #1MDB that was then looted as $4.5 billion were stolen from the fund by Swampy players all over the globe...

Former assistant trainer of 1973 Triple Crown-winner Secretariat was extradited from Ireland to face charges of child porn, sexual exploitation of a minor, both here an abroad.

FBI believes there are more victims and are looking for them.

Also quite interesting is......
....that he made a statement that he “used to live in the royal palace in Saudi Arabia, where he worked as an assistant for Late King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud,” and was paid with housing and flights to various places.”

Mullan was previously serving time in Ireland for producing child porn. Once that sentence was over, he was extradited back to the US.

💰Update - The Beltway Bandit

Elliott Broidy is arguably the swampiest Trump swamp creature, in a swamp filled with avaricious swamp monsters peddling foreign influence ops for hire (big bucks) with the goal of shaping US policy to benefit foreign governments.
#Broidy
Post 2016 elex, Broidy positioned himself as a premier broker of influence & access to the new adm & a financial oppty to mix his int’l biz with his efforts to influence US foreign policy, which is why he is the subject of federal scrutiny involving a number of global scandals.
‼️How a Trump Ally Tested the Boundaries of DC’s Influence Game

Broidy had pleaded guilty in 2009 to giving nearly $1M in illegal gifts to NYS officials to help land a $250 million investment from the state’s pension fund.

Things must be heating up if the @NYT's is circling back to Elliott Broidy!
Broidy is a Swamp creature connected to both sides of the Swamp in DC, Hollywood, & NY.
Poor Ken can't figure out why Broidy had great crimes planned w Trump but nothing happened...
#ButNothingsHappening
He bought access to all the right people, he sold out to foreign leaders to illegally lobby as a foreign agent, yet while Trump & associates entertained his proposals in the White House, they didn't go along with them.
Almost like Broidy was caught in a sting or something...
@kenvogel says Broidy's efforts for a Malaysian financier involved in the #1MDB scandal "appeared to yield little action" is completely false. It lead to the guilty plea of a DOJ attorney assigned to Congressional support for trying to bribe Trump...
