"There's been a massive fuck up," NSW Labor's now suspended general secretary Kaila Murnain allegedly told party lawyer Ian Robertson after she had found out about the party receiving illegal donations from a Chinese billionaire.

According to Murnain's testimony to the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC), Robertson told her to forget all about it.

"Ian said to me 'there is no need to do anything from here, don't record this meeting, don't put it in the diary... and don't tell anyone about it'." Robertson is yet to address this claim.
