Mahathir Mohammad at @CFR_org. First question on Chinese economic influence in #Malaysia. "Previous government borrowed too much money."
Says he explained to China that Najib was the problem and not Beijing. But now he's talking about payment pathways privileging Chinese SoEs over local contractors. "That is not good for us. Malaysian contractors have no role to play."
"Colonialism can take many forms. Countries can be subject to pressure through economic systems and that is a form of colonialism also." - Mahathir

Former Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Under Investigation for Tax Fraud

TEY: Lordy, Lordy, we hope there are “scans”😎

Manafort needs to be understood as a symptom of a global epidemic of kleptocracy—a ‘Russian’ virus that he imported into the United States.

@20committee told us TWO yrs ago Manafort’s sidekick was RU GRU agent Konstantin Kilimnik, spent a decade advising Yanukovych, lobbied for Pakistan’s ISI, & was a hired ‘fixer’ for rebels in Angola, Ferdinand Marcos, and Zaire’s dictator Mobutu Sese Seko.

Opposition Fools keep claiming that Singapore's external debts amount to 110% of their GDP. The fact is Singapore Government has around RM3 trillion of assets and 0 external debt.
I mean how could they go into debt when year after year, they close their budget with surplus unlike Malaysia who borrow to pay for operational expenditure?
Singapore Government has clarified that the so called debt the Opposition fools is fond of citing is actually mainly monies brought in by Singapore's international banking sector and these so called "loans" are fully backed by assets.

In terms of economic challenges, the national debt isn’t our biggest problem. Sure, it needs to be sorted out, but at only 80% to GDP by the most conservative measure, it’s manageable and we can service it w/o resorting to messing around w/ public finances and assets.
The US’ govt debt is 105% of GDP; UK 88%; SG 110%-these measures tho, don’t take into a/c contingent liabilities like the recently announced @MOFmalaysia numbers. If they did, the % would be far higher.
From a balance sheet perspective, our problem is not on the liabilities side, it’s on the assets side. Thanks to crap like #1MDB some of this debt is sitting on overvalued or worse, non-existent assets #bitchbetterhavemymoney

On #1MDB, @Reuters reports that MACC found evidences that Najib received 1MDB funds in his personal account.

MACC wanted to investigate further, and their request was rejected by the AG.…
MACC found Najib received $10.6 million in 2015. Request to investigate further was rejected by the AG.
