Trump Fund-Raiser Received Laundered Foreign Money, Prosecutors Say

Source: New York Times

Federal prosecutors cited the involvement of a onetime top fund-raiser to President Trump on Friday in a scheme to launder millions of dollars into the country to help a flamboyant Malaysian financier end a Justice Department investigation.

Elliott Broidy, a Los Angeles-based businessman who was a finance vice chairman of Mr. Trumpís 2016 campaign and inauguration committees, was paid to lobby the Trump administration to try to end an investigation related to the embezzlement of billions of dollars from a Malaysian state-owned fund, according to court filings made public on Friday.

The filings were released in connection with a guilty plea entered by George Higginbotham, a former Justice Department employee. Mr. Higginbotham admitted to conspiring to lie to banks about the source of tens of millions of dollars he funneled into the United States from the Malaysian financier Jho Low, who federal authorities say masterminded a scheme to loot the 1 Malaysia Development Berhad fund, also known as 1MDB.

Mr. Higginbotham, who left the Justice Department in August, was not involved in the departmentís investigation of Mr. Low, and is cooperating with prosecutors.

3. Been waitin for him a looong time, Mrs. O - when I saw that 1MDB reference earlier today

in the Higgenbotham (sp) story, I said BRING ME BROIDY -

As you can see, I expected Cohen to dish on him, but - whatever it takes!

I just donít like the guy

Next up, keep an eye open for Tom Barrackís indictment/plea deal? He was instrumental in bringing Manafort to trump, according to a great article on him a while back...Barrack knows lots of things, plus, heís another one of these dirty mobster scumbags...

ONE BY ONE, MRS O!!!

7. Thanks for this info, Leghorn. I need to do a little more research on Tom Barrack's

role as I'm not that familiar with him, though definitely know the name.

I'm glad to see Broidy finally held to some accountability. It's still hard for me to believe the playboy model pregnancy story--wonder if more will come to light about that.

8. Yeah, that million dollar pregnancy...maybe Cohen has a teeny bit of knowledge about that he'd care

to share with us??

Meanwhile, hereís some info about Barrack...busy guy, gets around...the only thing I question is the assertion that he brought Manafort to trump, BECAUSE hadnít Manafort and trump been pals for decades by then...?ó so why wouldnít Manafort just directly approach dumbass on his own...?

Many mysteries to be solved...!!

5. Not yet.

The swamp is still being cleared. Broidy is sort of a slightly better looking version of tRump, with more hair. Together they look like Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee. Almost like two versions of Elvis, you might say. You MIGHT say, but SANE people would not.
