Some 18,000 individuals have aready signed an online petition requesting the White House to reveal the identity of “Malaysian Official 1” mentioned in a US Department of Justice civil complaint filed in court following an investigations into money-laundering.

The petition, initiated by an “L.C.” on the White House website on 24 November, requires a target of 100,000 signatures within 30 days to be achieved. If that target is met, the White House would then have to respond or state its position within 60 days.
