“How can the ‘return’ of 104 million francs to “ordinary Malaysians” involve an “independent foundation” and not a government to government transfer? Would the “independent foundation” not be forced to conceal the origins of that money to prevent it from being a matter of concern for both the GoM and Bank Negara? Is Cynthia Gabriel so dumb that she does not know this?”
THE THIRD FORCE
There is a selective outrage machine here in Malaysia that pettifogs whenever it suits the “Najib is a criminal” narrative. That is to say, we currently have groups of people plucking non-issues from thin air, branding them as security concerns and discussing them in ways that criminalise the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Another group – the Centre to Combat Cronyism and Corruption (C4) – is run by a Cynthia Gabriel, who, on the 8th of June 2017, received the US-based National Endowment for Democracy’s (NED) 2017 Democracy Award. On that day, she told the Washington D.C. ceremony that she was prepared to be labelled a CIA agent.
“I am prepared for that, I am ready. I take inspiration from the American people, as the last couple of months, (the) American civil society has shown how important it is to keep our institutions independent,” she said.
Yes, she is prepared to be called a CIA agent even though she isn’t actually one. And that’s the truth – Cynthia was once an agent, but was jettisoned from the agency when they found her to be ineffective. For this reason alone, she forged an alliance with a former FBI director who currently heads a deviationist faction from the CIA funded by George Soros.
You’re referring to James Comey?
Yes I am.
James was fired by Trump on the 9th of May 2017 for focussing on trivia rather than evidence implicating Hillary Clinton of criminal negligence. But how and why James was attempting to protect Hillary is something I will make public this Saturday, the 2nd of December 2017 (and that’s a promise). Suffice to say, Cynthia is allied to James via the latter’s brother, Peter Comey (Peter).
Who is Peter?
I have spoken extensively on this guy in the past and will do so again this Saturday. In a nutshell, this is the guy who negotiated the transfer of USD5.01 million from accounts linked to Daim Zainuddin to the Clinton Foundation. A long-time associate of Dr Mahathir Mohamad, it was Peter who helped come up with plans for a second announcement by the United States (US) Department of Justice (DoJ).
On the 6th of March 2017, Mahathir sent Peter an email that listed Cynthia and Dato’ Seri Ambiga Sreenevasan as persons to associate with. Several weeks later, the trio – Peter, Cynthia and Ambiga – got to work planning a sequel to the 20th of July 2016 announcement by the DoJ even before people like Matthias Chang and Sivarasa Rasiah got involved.
Why was the second DoJ announcement important to Peter?
Months prior to the 15th of June 2017 announcement, several attorneys from California linked to the Trump administration offered to place Loretta Lynch under a Witness Immunity programme. In return, they needed the former US Attorney General to testify against James, Peter and several other persons tied to the DoJ and the Clinton Foundation.
News of the negotiation triggered alarm in Peter’s circle. The Comey sibling could not afford authorities digging around the Clinton concern and discovering the USD950,000 assets he purchased or the multimillion dollar transactions he helped conceal. And we’re not even talking about the millions he and his brother derived off the Clinton Foundation yet.
And that angered Trump.
Which is why, the second DoJ announcement was meant to impress upon US financial regulators and the Trump administration that James and the DoJ were committed to combatting instances of money laundering. Seeing that Trump took a tough stance on Muslim majority nations, both Peter and the Clintons decided to wage a fresh round of assaults on 1MDB and the GoM.
Now, if I were to say that Lynch’s aide communicated with me and confirmed all of this, nobody is going to believe me. As a matter of fact, when I wrote Mahathir’s secret arrangement with the Clinton Foundation on the 23rd of June 2017, I was told that the part concerning Hillary Clinton was a little “too hard to swallow.” But late last month, Fox’s Judge Jeanine Pirro more or less confirmed what I said by giving us a preview of just how corrupt Hillary Clinton really was.
Still, to allay all doubt, The Third Force will undertake this Saturday to name the American go-between who helped transfer the USD1.12 million Lynch was paid to facilitate and conduct the DoJ’s 20th of July 2016 announcement. And we’re talking money derived from the USD5.01 million Dr Mahathir Mohamad funnelled to the Clinton Foundation here, money that he channelled with the help of a former Malaysian Minister of Finance, Daim Zainuddin.
Once I make public that name, the GoM will have sufficient grounds to seek a formal inquiry into allegations that the Clintons were bribed to subvert Malaysian democracy. Of course, the only way the GoM will ever get US Attorney General Jeff Sessions to launch a discovery into the Clinton Foundation is if the allegation pertains bribe money channelled to a US government official through the country’s financial system.
Rest assured, the USD1.12 million Lynch received was.
The scheduled Saturday revelation is bound to open up a Pandora’s Box of claims and counterclaims should Sessions decide to file a case. Assuming the GoM does seek an investigation, the FBI under Christopher A. Wray is bound to discover a money trail leading to financial institutions linked one way or another to Daim Zainuddin. Cynthia will then have a tough time explaining the RM3 or so million she netted by making sweeping statements against the Najib administration.
What kind of statements?
Take the one she made on the 23rd of November 2017 for example.
On that day, she told a press conference that the Government of Switzerland (GoS) needed to return the 104 million Swiss francs it confiscated from some Swiss banks to “ordinary Malaysians.” According to her, the GoS needed to work with “an independent foundation” and not the GoM to channel the money to Malaysians.
What is wrong with that?
Are you kidding me?
Cynthia spent close to three years implying that Najib defrauded taxpayers by helping spirit 1MDB money through offshore entities. Logically, that would mean she does not trust the Najib administration or statutory agencies commissioned by the GoM to oversee and administer specific functions on its behalf, including Bank Negara Malaysia, the country’s central bank.
Putting two and two together, we can safely assume that Cynthia does not trust Bank Negara to oversee or administer the distribution of 104 million francs to “ordinary Malaysians.” In other words, this lady has every intention of getting the Swiss government to bypass both the GoM and Bank Negara in getting that money to the people.
But wouldn’t that be an act of laundering money? The last I checked, the only way the GoS could ever channel 104 million francs to Malaysians is via government to government transfer, which, by anti-money laundering laws and conventions applicable to both nations, must involve both the Central Bank of Switzerland and Bank Negara one way or the other.
And this is especially true since the millions were confiscated by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA), a statutory body commissioned by the GoS to act on behalf of it. Furthermore, Cynthia maintains that the money FINMA confiscated was derived off funds laundered by officials from 1MDB, which, if you still do not know, is a company fully owned by the GoM.
So how can the ‘return’ of 104 million francs to “ordinary Malaysians” involve an “independent foundation” and not a government to government transfer? Would the “independent foundation” not be forced to conceal the origins of that money to prevent it from being a matter of concern for both the GoM and Bank Negara?
On one hand, Cynthia seems pissed that money derived off funds originating from 1MDB was laundered through the Swiss financial system. On the other hand, she is suggesting that the Swiss government launders that money through “an independent foundation” to ensure that the average Malaysian receives a cut.
Is she not an idiot?
Cynthia claims that 1MDB laundered money. Is she telling us the truth?
Let’s assume I paid a company belonging to a guy named Mark RM10,000 for services rendered to me. Let’s further assume that at some point, Mark launders that money through the BVI before channelling surpluses to a person named Judy. On that basis and that basis alone, can we conclude with a hundred percent certainty that I conspired with Judy to launder money?
If that were to be the case, you had better stop banking in money to anyone effective immediately, because who knows, you could be implicated of money laundering for nothing. And if you believe that I am as culpable as Mark for laundering money based on that information alone, you definitely belong to a category of people we refer to as Pakatuns.
But Cynthia claims she represents the people of Malaysia.
By whose vote?
Neither is she an elected representative, nor do I recall any event where a census was taken to establish that representation. Like I said in the beginning, there is a selective outrage machine here in Malaysia that pettifogs whenever it suits the “Najib is a criminal” narrative. People like Cynthia and Ambiga are paid millions from a USD50 million money pot George Soros set aside to do just that (READ HERE).
