The Department of Justice last week accused eight people of illegally channeling millions of dollars in foreign money into Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. But that’s not all; the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee—Adam Schiff—as well as several senators and Democratic organizations also received donations.
According to the statement, from March 2016 to January 2017, Ahmad ‘Andy’ Khawaja of e-commerce company Allied Wallet conspired with Lebanese American businessman George Nader and six other people to conceal the source of more than $3.5 million in illegal campaign contributions to political committees associated with a presidential candidate.
George Nader is also known for being the main witness in the case of the false collusion with Russia, by former prosecutor Robert Mueller.
Nader—who is now under arrest—was a major donor to the Democratic campaign and a proven child molester and trafficker.
But there’s more to the story. This scandal involves almost every major name in the Democratic Party who took this illegal money, including Adam Schiff, Ted Lieu, Jon Tester, Cory Booker, Hillary Clinton, according to the opensecrets.org platform, a Washington-based NGO that tracks the use of money in politics and elections.
Ties with Clinton
The indictment cites an alleged encrypted message Nader sent to a foreign official through WhatsApp after Khawaja contributed $275,000 and invited Nader to attend an event hosted by a presidential candidate on April 16, 2016. “Wonderful meeting with the Big Lady…Can’t wait to tell you about it,” Nader supposedly wrote, in an apparent reference to Clinton.
The indictment noted that political committees that received funds “unwittingly” submitted false disclosure reports and were presumably victims of the plot.
Still, Clinton apparently attended numerous events, including small gatherings with Nader, who on July 19, 2016 sent the foreign official a photograph of him with Candidate 1’s spouse, an apparent reference to Bill Clinton, at Khawaja’s home, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.
When Clinton lost the election to President Trump, Khawaja had Company A contribute $1 million to the inaugural committee of the president-elect of the United States, according to the indictment.
Thus, some leftist media tried to falsely involve Nader with President Trump, even though this scandal clearly carries the Democratic flag.
