As the beleaguered Pm hunkers down to consider his next moves against his perceived conspirators after removing his deputy and sacking the AG, Bolehlanders are having a good laugh.
Far from making himself out to be innocent, Ah Jib's antics only further fortify the people's perception that the Pm is indeed guilty of diverting 1MDB's monies into his personal bank accounts.
At least if Ah Jib had been able to categorically deny the WSJ and SR expose, Bolehlanders
would have given him the benefit of the doubt.
Just insisting that he had never used any public fund for personal gain, in the light of the damning expose, without also denying that 2.6 billion Ringgit 1MDB monies, as alleged, had been diverted into his personal bank accounts merely condemns him, no matter how the Pm tries to twist and turn to wriggle out of trouble.
Removing Muhyiddin and sacking the AG at this point of time tells a lot more about culpability than innocence, especially when one considers that there had talk about the AG readying criminal charges against the Pm and the former deputy Pm calling for those involved in 1MDB wrongdoings to be held accountable.
Desperate times do seem to call for desperate measures and it is perhaps not surprising to see Ah Jib resorting to manoeuvres to contain any move to get him to step down as the Pm or bringing him to account.
Unfortunately, the court of public opinion is not in the Pm's favour.
