Mueller Report Witness Charged With Trafficking Minor for Sex

Mueller Report Witness Charged With Trafficking Minor for Sex

By    |   Friday, 19 July 2019 02:48 PM

A key witness in former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has been indicted on charges of sex trafficking after allegedly having sex with a 14-year-old boy he had brought to the United States from Europe, The Daily Beast reports.

The Eastern District of Virginia unsealed the indictment Friday morning, revealing that George Nader, a 60-year-old Lebanese-American businessman, has been charged with sex trafficking, child pornography and obscenity in addition to child pornography charges filed against him last month. He pleaded not guilty to all charges on Friday.

Nader, who has widespread ties to the United Arab Emirates, met with people associated with President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign at several points during the election, at one point arranging a meeting between Erik Prince, the founder of Blackwater and brother of Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, and Kirill Dmitriev, who heads one of Russia’s sovereign wealth funds, in January, 2017. This meeting was heavily investigated by Mueller’s team, and is noted in his report as one instance of Russia attempting to influence the Trump administration.

Nader was convicted of abusing minors in the Czech Republic in 2003, and charged with transporting a minor to the U.S. for sexual purposes, but he was later acquitted. Federal prosecutors claim that Nader has had “hands-on contact with more than a dozen minor boys.” He has been charged with transporting child pornography in the U.S. twice before, once in 1984 and again in 1990. The first charge was dismissed due to an illegal search, but Nader pleaded guilty to the second in 1991.
