According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, the U.S Department of Justice is looking into whether a Malaysian businessman and fugitive used laundered money to pay a legal team that worked for him. Jho Low reportedly laundered the money through two of his associates.
The people he paid includes former NJ Governor Chris Christie and a lawyer that represents President Donald Trump, but The Wall Street Journal noted that there's no proof that anyone else on the legal team knew the money was laundered.
The 36-year-old is currently wanted in Malaysia for embezzling $4.5 billion from a fund called 1Malaysia Development Bhd.
