Oof. That's bad.

Another one bites the dust, ladies and gentlemen and non-binary friends.

The old saying goes, “Birds of a feather flock together,” and over the years we’ve had the displeasure of getting a very close look into the types of people that now-ex-President Donald Trump has always and continues to surround himself with. From Jeffrey Epstein, to Michael Flynn, to a dentist golfing buddy who gropes his patients — it’s easy to see the type of person Donald Trump is at his core, just by the people he keeps as company.

And this is no different.

As Donald’s own legal issues continue to rapidly mount, it seems one of his close allies and associates quietly pleaded guilty to very serious crimes against the United States government late last year.

In a bombshell report for The Intercept, Matthew Cole reveals that longtime Trump ally, associate, and pal George Nader has recently pleaded guilty to making illegal campaign contributions to Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential race.

“George Nader, an American adviser to the government of the United Arab Emirates, convicted sex offender, and frequent visitor to the White House during President Donald Trump’s first year in office, has pleaded guilty for his role in helping the UAE pump millions of dollars in illegal campaign contributions into the U.S. political system during the 2016 presidential election,” Cole writes.

While the bombshell guilty plea is just now being reported on, it seems Nader’s plea was made back in December when a sentencing memo was disclosed, showing that prosecutors were gunning for a five-year sentence for the Trump ally.

“Nader’s guilty plea opens a new window into the efforts of the United Arab Emirates and its de facto ruler, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, known as MBZ, to influence the outcome of the 2016 election and shape subsequent U.S. policy in the Gulf,” the report goes on to note. “Prosecutors have alleged that Nader took his instructions from the UAE crown prince and that he regularly updated MBZ on his progress as he sought to get close to Clinton.”

It seems Donald’s closest friends, allies, and associates are dropping like flies around him. When will it be his turn?
