Feds Charge Trump Donor Imaad Zuberi With Hiding Work as Foreign Agent

Source: The Daily Beast

A Los Angeles financier who donated $900,000 to President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee has admitted to falsifying records to hide his work as a foreign agent while he lobbied prominent U.S. government officials, federal prosecutors announced Tuesday.

Shah Zuberi, 49, also known as “Imaad Zuberi,” has agreed to plead guilty to three counts in a criminal information for allegedly making almost $1 million in illegal campaign contributions, engaging in various lobbying efforts, and evading taxes, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Central District of California.

“Mr. Zuberi’s multi-faceted scheme allowed him to line his pockets by concealing the fact that he was representing foreign clients, obtaining access for clients by making a long series of illegal contributions, and skimming money paid by his clients,” United States Attorney Nick Hanna said in a press release Tuesday announcing the charges.

“Mr. Zuberi circumvented laws designed to insulate U.S. policy and our election process from foreign intervention.”

10. And we'll probably never know if this case was begun by the Mueller team

and passed to other prosecutors before he closed his investigation.

13. This guy also donated to H. Clinton and Democrats

I wonder what's up with him. He sounds really slimy. From the LA Times:

In the lead-up to the 2016 election, Zuberi funneled more than $600,000 to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, according to campaign finance records. It was the culmination of years of stalwart, high-level support for Democratic candidates, including President Obama, the records show.
