A lobbyist, who also served as a witness for then-special counsel Robert Mueller, has pleaded guilty to in a scheme to usher millions of dollars through the United Arab Emirates to Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign in 2016.
The Washington Examiner reported Tuesday that George Nader, a convicted child sex predator who served as a key witness for Mueller, “quietly pleaded guilty last year to involvement in an illegal campaign scheme funneling” the money from the UAE to Clinton’s ultimately unsuccessful campaign against then-GOP nominee Donald Trump.
Nader, a former lobbyist of Lebanese descent, was sentenced to 10 years in prison in June 2020 after he pleaded guilty to bringing a minor teenage boy to the U.S. for sex and for being in possession of child pornography.
However, it was not known until recently that he also pleaded guilty to the scheme to illegally funnel foreign money to Clinton’s campaign.
It’s not clear if Clinton was aware of Nader’s actions at the time or whether she knew he had pleaded guilty to the scheme prior to the Washington Examiner’s reporting.
