Good Times Thread! Rose Colored Glasses, cute dogs, SPRINGTIME! Bad Dudes Get Their Due! Cheaters Lose Millions! Let's Go!

Here's my neighbor's 7 week old Great Dane pup.

Mega thread, I apologize, there's a lot to unpack
Some of y'all might be aware that the 1MDB scandal is the biggest thing since sliced treasonous fraud. It has, for example, already brought down a Prime Minister.
And it has the All Time Most Ironic Scandal Prize for funding "The Wolf of Wall Street" which remains under investigation for money laundering.
The Kingpin in the story is Jho Low, who somehow looted his home country for something like 5 Billion Dollars. His strategy to escape justice was to SPREAD THE CASH EVERYWHERE. So, Paris Hilton, Leonardo DiCaprio, B Spears, etc. qz.com/quartzy/139200…
And of course, The Worst Company In the World, Gold Man Sacks, helped launder the funds on two continents (at least). Tim Leissner, Asia Desk, has already pleaded guilty AND FORFEITED 43.7 MILLION. Lol. cnbc.com/2018/11/01/us-…
When Jho Low got busted for laundering criminal proceeds into the US, he did what good criminals do, he laundered in more funds to pay bribes and attorneys' fees. AND HE GOT BUSTED BRINGING IN ONE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS.
The DOJ filed a complaint for forfeiture of those funds in November, 2018. justice.gov/opa/press-rele…. Jho Low had a mole in the DOJ - George Higginbotham - a non lawyer on the Jho Low investigation. George is totally busted.
The $100,000,000 was intended for bribes for two US individuals, INDIVIDUAL 1 who owns several businesses and INDIVIDUAL 2 who is a "longtime political fundraiser." If you hate Trump, you'll love this next part.
Individual 1 is Elliot Broidy. His resume: Deputy Finance Chair, Republican National Committee, 2017-2018 (along with Felon Michael Cohen); 2016 Vice Chair of Pro Trump Victory Committee; Vice Chairman of the Trump Inaugural Committee. Also CONVICTED FELON, 2009.
What was Broidy Convicted of? Bribing Government officials to the tune of 1 Million dollars of illegal gifts to NY State Pension authorities. He already paid $18 Million in restitution in that case.
Even as I write this, I can't believe how stupid fucked up and greedy it all is. Please give me a follow. Also follow my band @dirkandthetruth we can talk music after this whole stupid gang goes to prison.
So let's talk Trump. Wall Street Journal reports in March that the DOJ is investigating whether $100,000 that went to Broidy's Victory Fund was actually paid by Jho Low (OF COURSE IT WAS). wsj.com/articles/doj-p….
WOW. I MISSED THIS MY FIRST 20 TIMES READING THE HIGGENBOTHAM INDICTMENT. DOJ SEEKING 1 BILLION IN FORFEITURES IN CALIFORNIA including real estate, a luxury hotel, jet aircraft, and ownership of THE WOLF OF WALL STREET. LOL.
Fast Forward, May 10, 2019, the DOJ just released a NEW indictment against Jho Low and Praz Michel, who apparently didn't make enough as a member of the Fugees and thought money laundering was a good idea. justice.gov/opa/press-rele…
So he helped Jho Low launder in funds to pay political donations in order to influence candidates in the POTUS election.
SURPRISE! This was a candidate in the 2012 POTUS election (Obama v. Romney). But OH NO, the sads, Obama wouldn't meet with Jho Low or Praz. (Thanks, @BarackObama )
Praz got straw donors to donate Hundreds of Thousands of dollars to Democratic PACS, but OH NO THE SADS Obama still wouldn't meet with Jho Low.
Praz funneled another $800,000 through Individual A (a US person associated with a pro Obama PAC) and finally succeed in getting Jho Low's father to a fundraiser with Obama. Jho Low couldn't get through vetting.
So, Praz Michel and Jho Low are indicted for conspiracy to put foreign money in US elections, and for causing others to file false SEC reports. AND WE ALL KNOW THE MOST TRANSACTIONAL POTUS IN HISTORY HAD $100,000,000 IN BRIBES AIMED AT HIM THROUGH CONVICTED BRIBER BROIDY. LOL
EPILOGUE: US Returns Millions in Ironic Twist of Fate. The US just recovered and returned 57 Million to Malaysia from Red Granite, which produced The Wolf of Wall Street. hollywoodreporter.com/news/us-return….
Malaysia getting the money back from the Manhattan's Park Lane Hotel and a couple of hundred million more in Singapore.
Rose Colored Glasses Dirk: MAYBE THE DOJ IS JUST TEASING US WITH A DEM CONNECTED FOREIGN MONEY SCANDAL BEFORE IT DROPS THE BOMB.
