1MDB scandal on US TV show

Report: Trump ally allegedly linked to Jho Low cries victim over email leak

Republican donor Elliott Broidy, alleged to have been in negotiations for a US$75 million (RM295 million) deal with businessman Jho Low to get the US Department of Justice (DOJ) to drop its 1MDB investigation, has reportedly cried victim in the matter.

The negotiations were first brought to light by the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) claiming to have reviewed emails showing Broidy, who is a close ally of US President Donald Trump, in a draft proposal asking for a US$75 million fee “if the DOJ quickly drops its investigation”.

“He (Broidy) says the reason his emails are turning up all over the place and all sorts of news reports now is because he has been hacked by a foreign government, and he is the real victim here,” said American television host Rachel Maddow on her news programme ‘The Rachel Maddow Show’ last night.

The episode titled ‘With New Player’s Details, Trump-Russia Probe Seems Far From Over’, Maddow makes detailed mention of the 1MDB scandal from the time of the ‘Arab donation’ matter to the latest expose on the Jho Low deal.

As reported by the WSJ, the emails dated the past year involved discussions to set up a consulting contract with Low.

Also among the emails were allegedly talking points Broidy had drafted for Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s meeting with Trump last year, which included mention of the “US legal pursuit of the 1MDB matter”.

Low has been embroiled in the 1MDB scandal, particularly after the DOJ launched a series of forfeiture suits to seize assets it claims had been siphoned from 1MDB.

The businessman again hit the spotlight when a luxury yacht he allegedly acquired using 1MDB funds was seized by Indonesian authorities in Bali in a joint operation with the US authorities.

Maddow addressed the seizure of the yacht named Equanimity on her show last night, jokingly congratulating the US public for their “new yacht”.
