In a total bombshell, a key Mueller witness and convicted pedophile was just indicted for funneling millions to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign via staw donors.
George Nader and 7 others were indicted for the scheme. Now it gets weird. Nader has ties to Russia and the Middle East and it was these ties the media used to try to paint the phony Russia narrative around Trump.
Nader was a key cog in the conspiracy theory but it turns out he was funneling millions to Hillary trying to exert influence over her at the same time he was trying to influence Trump.
In other words, this arrest shatters the last remnant of the Trump Russia hoax and the media owes Trump a massive apology.
Because it turns out the Russians were also trying to influence Hillary through this guy’s network at the same time as Trump was being crucified for any connection, however distant, to the same guy.
The Mueller report makes clear this guy was trying to gain influence with both campaigns, but the media will have you believe Hillary was clean as a whistle.
A lobbyist known for his ties to the inner circle of President Donald Trump has been indicted on campaign finance charges for allegedly using straw donors to conceal contributions to Trump’s 2016 rival, Hillary Clinton, the Justice Department revealed on Tuesday.
According to the FBI/DOJ, Nader was funneling millions to Clinton via Khawaja and was also at the same time keeping a close Putin insider aware of his efforts to infiltrate the Trump AND Clinton campaigns.

The lobbyist, George Nader, a Lebanese-American businessman, has acted as an informal conduit between Trump’s top advisers and various Middle Eastern interests. He also served as a witness in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into election interference.
The Justice Department refers only to an unidentified 2016 presidential candidate, but campaign finance records make clear that the candidate was Clinton.
Nader embarked on the scheme in a bid to gain influence in Clinton’s circle while reporting to a foreign official, according to the Justice Department.
Among his alleged co-conspirators is Ahmad “Andy” Khawaja, the CEO of a payments processing company, according to the Justice Department news release announcing the unsealing of the indictment, which was made by a grand jury in the District of Columbia.
Nader conspired with Khawaja to secretly fund $3.5 million in donations that were made in the name of Khawaja, his wife and his firm, Allied Wallet Inc., according to the indictment.
More on Nader from the AP:
His long history included intrepid back-channel mediation between Israel and Arab countries — and a 15-year-old pedophilia conviction in Europe that has not been previously reported. But Mueller, in his investigation of President Donald Trump, his campaign and possible wrongdoing connected to Russia, is focused on Nader’s role in two high-level get-togethers after the presidential election, according to three people familiar with the case.
Nader was caught in Mueller’s web a few days before the anniversary of Trump’s inauguration. He was transiting through Dulles International Airport outside Washington, on his way to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, when his plans changed — abruptly and involuntarily.
Mueller’s investigators stopped him, people familiar with the case said. His electronics were seized and he was then allowed to go see his lawyer…
…Nader joined a meeting at New York’s Trump Tower in December 2016 that brought together presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner, chief strategist Steve Bannon — fired by Trump last August — and Mohammed bin Zayed, crown prince of Abu Dhabi and de facto leader of the United Arab Emirates.
A second meeting occurred a month later in the Indian Ocean archipelago of Seychelles and involved Nader, bin Zayed, former Blackwater boss Erik Prince and Kirill Dmitriev, a Russian banker close to President Vladimir Putin.
Nader’s record of sexual abuse in Prague appears unrelated to his role in Mueller’s probe in the United States; it is unclear whether Mueller’s investigators knew about it. One of Nader’s lawyers, Sandeep Savla, suggested that information about his record was being leaked to stop him from cooperating…
…A George Nader was convicted by Prague’s Municipal Court of 10 cases of sexually abusing minors and sentenced to a one-year prison term in May 2003, court spokeswoman Marketa Puci told The Associated Press on Wednesday. She said the crimes occurred between 1999 and 2002. She said Nader served time in a Prague prison, though it isn’t clear how much. He was then ordered expelled.
Puci said Nader was convicted of “moral corruption of minors, sexual abuse and impairing morals,” after abusing underage boys.
In one case, Nader requested oral sex from a 14-year-old boy in a room at the Hilton Hotel in Prague, Puci said. After the boy refused, Nader masturbated in front of him and paid him 2,000 koruna — worth about $100 today, she said.
The verdict cites other examples of Nader providing money, jewelry, cellphones, clothes and accommodation for sexual services. The AP was able to see a copy of the verdict, which gives Nader’s birthdate as May 15, 1959. Nader was separately accused in Washington, D.C., of child pornography infractions in 1985, but those charges were later dropped. A criminal docket sheet obtained by the AP shows the same birthdate for Nader.
Two people with knowledge of the case confirmed it involved the same Nader now cooperating with Mueller.
