Media Blackout: Mueller’s Star Witness Pleads Guilty in Illegal Scheme to Funnel Foreign Money to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 CampaignCristina Laila
Why was this information buried from the public?
We reported previously that George Nader, a Lebanese-American businessman and one of Mueller’s ‘star witnesses’ was charged in a Virginia federal court in July 2019 with additional child sex crimes.
In June 2020, a federal judge in Virginia sentenced Nader, 61, to 10 years in prison — the absolute minimum he could receive for his charges!
Recall, Nader was previously indicted on June 3rd 2019 on child pornography charges.
According to a 3-count indictment unsealed, Nader was previously charged for possessing child pornography and for traveling with a minor to engage in illegal sexual acts
Nader was accused of transporting a 14-year-old European boy to the United States for sex in the year 2000.
Robert Mueller previously investigated whether George Nader, an advisor to the United Arab Emirates, was influencing U.S. policy, the New York Times reported in March of 2018 — Nader was reportedly interviewed by the Special Counsel’s team twice.
Mueller wanted to interview Nader after he supposedly helped arrange a January 2017 meeting in the Seychelles between Blackwater founder Erik Prince and a Russian official – because of his connection to Trump.
It was also reported that Nader was involved in illegal campaign contributions from foreign entities to the Hillary campaign in 2016 and faced separate criminal charges related to this scheme.
Now we find out that Nader pleaded guilty last year to one count related to his involvement of illegally funneling millions of dollars from the UAE to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign.
The DOJ asked for Nader’s 60-month sentence to run consecutively with his child sex crime sentence, the Examiner reported.
The Washington Examiner reported:
The Department of Justice revealed in a December sentencing memo that Nader had pleaded guilty to a single count on July 22, 2020. The court filing says Nader and Ahmad “Andy” Khawaja, a Los Angeles-based chief executive of Allied Wallet, “orchestrated a scheme to funnel over $3.5 million in foreign funds into the 2016 presidential election.” The DOJ added that they “did so to gain direct access to unsuspecting high-level political figures to further their professional endeavors: in the defendant’s case, out of a desire to lobby on behalf and advance the interests of his client, the government of the United Arab Emirates; in Khawaja’s case, in the hopes of securing political appointment in the future.”
Nader was indicted in December 2019 for what prosecutors said was his role in a scheme to conceal large sums of illegal campaign contributions to help Clinton in 2016. He was accused of conspiring with Khawaja to conceal the source of more than $3.5 million in campaign contributions to political committees associated with Clinton.
Khawaja gave more than $4 million to Clinton’s campaign and other Democrats during the 2016 cycle but later donated $1 million to former President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee after Clinton lost. As he shifted his focus to Republicans after the 2016 election, the Lebanese-born Khawaja met with Trump at a Manhattan fundraiser and got a photo with the president in the Oval Office.
