    Mueller investigation witness pleads guilty to child sex crime charges

    George Nader, a Lebanese-American businessman who served as a witness in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, pleaded guilty to two charges relating to sexual exploitation of children on Monday, according to The Washington Post.​

    Curiously, the article fails to mention that Nader's allegiance was to Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton, to whom he donated $3.5 million according to his Wikipedia entry.

    I'm not even going to attempt to 'prove' this, so it's going away. I don't even want to start some rabbit hole.

    Just to clarify, Snopes indicates that the picture of George Nader with Bill Clinton is of a different George Nader.
    Is This a Picture of Bill Clinton with Convicted Sex Offender George Nader?

    CNN confirms though that the George Nader referenced in the OP is the one who donated millions to Hillary.

    Key Mueller witness charged with funneling contributions to Clinton campaign

    George Nader, who has for decades hobnobbed with political elites and became a key Mueller cooperator, and Allied Wallet CEO Ahmad "Andy" Khawaja are accused of sending millions to political committees and hiding Nader as its source, with Nader allegedly reporting to a Middle Eastern government on the effort.

    According to Federal Election Commission records and details in the indictment, the money primarily went toward backing Clinton's 2016 campaign efforts

    It appears that he isn't just helpful to Hillary Clinton, this guy gets around. But then Trumps and Clintons were known to be friendly as well.

    Nader has acted as a liaison between Trump‘s advisers and Mohammed bin Zayed, crown prince of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, as well as Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. In August 2016, Nader met with Donald Trump Jr. to offer help to Trump‘s campaign alongside Blackwater founder Erik Prince and Israeli social media specialist Joel Zamel. In 2017, Nader visited the White House several times to meet with Steve Bannon, then serving as Trump‘s chief strategist.

    From LostMarbels' link in post#4:
    It seems like the OP is trying to implicate Hillary Clinton in Nadler's nefarious activities because he contributed money to her campaign. Evidently, he also contributed heavily to Donald J. and was received in the White House. Does that say anything about the president?

    Goose, gander.

    So by association Hilary is sex criminal or something ?

    Wikipedia also states

    Early life
    Nader was born in Lebanon,[8] and is a Christian.[9]

    so is there something we can infer from that ? Or do we just go straight for special pleading ?

    Maybe they left it out because it wasn’t relevant to the story, in the same way they left out a bunch of his dealings with Republicans that are also described in the Wikipedia entry you referenced.

    LOL ... the Wall Street Journal and The Hill chose to single out Nader's association via the Mueller Report.

    I merely pointed out that Nader was a big money donor to Hillary.
    Noting that Nader's dealings with Trump were after Trump won election. Prior to that time he was all in for Hillary.

    What "dealings" did he have with Clinton other than contributing to the likely winner? Donald's people seem to have been more receptive to dealing with the man himself.

    You might want to read that wikipedia entry a little more closely. In Aug 2016, Nader, acting as a liaison for the Saudi crown prince, met with Don Jr to offer assistance to Trump's campaign. His connections with Erik Prince go back several years earlier than that.

    To reiterate, Nader didn't contribute to Trump until after Trump won election. Before that time Nader was all in for Hillary.

    You and I both know that our national leaders must deal with representatives of foreign interests all the time. It's a big part of the job.

    It's like Trump wholeheartedly supporting Roy Moore who, word has it, liked the little girls too. Oh, wait, no, that's kinda the opposite isn't it?

    Let's try again: it's like DAVID DUKE, former KKK Grand Wizard, wholeheartedly supporting Trump. There, that's more like it!

    Your narrative is in stark contrast with the facts.

    In August 2016, Nader met with Donald Trump Jr. at Trump Tower offering him assistance to his father's presidential campaign.[14] Nader served as an envoy representing Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince and de facto ruler Mohammad bin Salman and Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Crown Prince of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The meeting included Erik Prince and Joel Zamel, an Israeli specialist in social media manipulation[15][14] and owner of intelligence gathering firms including Wikistrat and the Psy-Group, who bragged to have received $2 million from Nader as part of the presidential campaign.[16]

    August 2016. That's before Trump won the election.

    ^_^ All in, you say? But "In August 2016, Nader met with Donald Trump Jr. to offer help to Trump‘s campaign alongside Blackwater founder Erik Prince and Israeli social media specialist Joel Zamel. " That was before the election, wasn't it?

    To reiterate, Nader contributed to the candidate widely predicted to win; when her opponent prevailed, he contributed to him which evidently got him access to the White House afterwards - Donald John's White House. And audience with Donald John's eponymous son, with Donald John's son-in-law and Donald John's chief strategy adviser.

    ... much closer to the end of the campaign than the beginning. It seems clear that Nader was angling for influence at that time. Even then though, he still hadn't contributed to Trump's campaign.
    ... and yet it appears that his efforts were in vain. Perhaps the Trump campaign accurately assessed that Nader was, as his Mueller probe cooperation showed, simply trouble in the making ... and politely met with him but provided nothing of value.
