An advisor to the United Arab Emirates — who has ties to Trump — is now cooperating with Mueller in his open-ended investigation into Trump and his cronies aka Russia.
The New York Times reports that George Nadar was a conduit for money from the Emirates to Trump's campaign and to benefit his Administration's efforts, which is blatantly illegal.
This transaction would have occurred at the fabled Seychelles meeting that has puzzled those examining Trump's clearly corrupt behavior from the beginning. Nader, a Lebanese-American businessman who is a close advisor to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan (who rules the U.A.E.) was at the Seychelles meeting, which took place in January 2017.
Also at the meeting, a Russian investor with Putin ties; founder of Blackwater Erik Prince (a Trump advisor); and Kirill Dmitriev, a Putin lackey:
The significance of the meeting in the Seychelles has been a puzzle to American officials ever since intelligence agencies first picked up on it in the final days of the Obama administration, and the purpose of the discussion is in dispute. During congressional testimony in November, Mr. Prince denied representing the Trump transition team during the meeting and dismissed his encounter with Mr. Dmitriev as nothing more than a friendly conversation over a drink.
A lawyer for Mr. Nader did not respond to requests for comment. A spokesman for Mr. Dmitriev has repeatedly declined to comment about the Seychelles meeting, as has Yousef al-Otaiba, the Emirati ambassador in Washington.
Anyone cynical enough to think Trump gets away with anything is going to have to face it sooner or later — Mueller is going to have Trump and all around him (especially Jared Kushner) dead to rights, and the things of which he will accuse Trump will not be able to be swept under the rug, not even by the craven GOP.
It's going to end, end ugly, and end not in Trump's favor. At all.
