Key Mueller Witness Indicted on Sickening Charges

Authorities have arrested a key witness in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe for transporting a 14-year-old boy from Europe to the United States for sex.

The criminal charges against George Nader, a businessman at the heart of the probe, were made public yesterday.

Per The Daily Caller:
 

Nader was charged on three counts, including a charge for possessing child pornography and one for traveling with a minor to engage in illegal sexual activity. He is accused of transporting the teenage boy from Europe to his home in the U.S. in 2000.

The indictment, which was handed down July 3, comes on top of one unsealed in June against Nader, who was a longtime adviser to the crown prince of the United Arab Emirates. Nader played a key role in setting up a meeting in January 2017 between defense contractor Erik Prince and the head of Russia's direct investment fund in the Seychelles.

Nader also met during the presidential transition period with Jared Kushner, and worked closely with Elliot Broidy, a former top Republican fundraiser who is reportedly under investigation for bribery and money laundering. In August 2016, Nader offered help to the Trump campaign during a meeting at Trump Tower with Donald Trump Jr. and Prince.

Nader, 60, was interviewed multiple times during the special counsel's investigation, all but one time under a proffer agreement with prosecutors. Nader is mentioned approximately 120 times in the special counsel's report, but there is no mention of his long history of alleged child sex crimes.
