George Nader, Witness in Mueller Probe, Hit With New Charges of Sex Trafficking

Source: The Daily Beast

The key cooperator faces additional child-porn charges in a new indictment to be unsealed Friday.

George Nader, who was a key witness in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, has been hit with new federal charges of child pornography, sex trafficking, and obscenity, according to a person familiar with the case.

The charges come on top of separate child-porn charges leveled by the same prosecutors last month. The new indictment is set to be unsealed Friday morning in the Eastern District of Virginia, according to the person.

The Department of Justice did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Nader’s attorneys declined to comment. Nader is expected to enter a plea on the charges this morning.

Nader, a 60-year-old Lebanese-American businessman with deep political and financial ties to the United Arab Emirates, was a key cooperator in Mueller’s probe of foreign influence in the 2016 election. Nader met several times with individuals associated with the Trump campaign throughout the election and into the early days of the administration. He spoke with officials and advisers on matters ranging from a pitch by a foreign firm for the campaign to use social-media manipulation to regime-change in Iran. (He met with Donald Trump Jr. and other campaign advisors about the plan, which included a proposal to use fake avatars to garner support for Trump, but Trump officials deny they ever considered it.)

2. It's hard to believe anything will come of this cuz they're federal charges making it under the

control of Barr and Nader has a close connection to Trump. Charges may have been filed but probably only to make Barr look non-prejudicial.

10. No wat Trump lifts a finger for this guy.

As a key witness for Mueller he will now have zero credibility as a witness against anyone in the administration. It seems much more likely Barr pushes this to totally destroy this man, and his credibility as a federal witness as much as possible.
