George Nader, key witness in Mueller probe, pleads guilty to child sex charges

1 post in this topic


George Nader, a key witness in the special counsel probe of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, admitted Monday to bringing a 14-year-old boy to the United States for sex and to possessing child pornography.

A wealthy Lebanese American businessman with long-standing political influence in Washington and the Middle East, Nader faces at least a decade in federal prison after his guilty plea in federal court in Alexandria, Va.

While the charges carry a maximum penalty of 30 years, prosecutors in the Eastern District of Virginia agreed to recommend the mandatory minimum of 10 years. Sentencing is set for April 10.

Prosecutors also agreed that Nader, 60, a dual citizen, can ask to leave the country immediately after his prison sentence is complete, rather than serve probation.


He already has a conviction in the same court for transporting child pornography in 1991, for which he served six months in prison. In exchange for his plea, prosecutors dropped new charges of transporting child pornography and obscene materials, and he will not be charged for similar conduct in the Eastern District of New York or in Washington.:snip:
