Mueller team looking into possible United Arab Emirates money into Trump campaign: report
Fox News ^ | 3/04/18 | Joseph Weber

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team is now purportedly looking into whether the United Arab Emirates, with perhaps help from a top adviser, tried to gain political influence by putting money into Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign -- a tack that would indicate Mueller’s investigation continues to expand beyond whether campaign officials colluded with Russia.

Mueller’s investigators in recent weeks have questioned the adviser, Lebanese-American businessman George Nader, and asked witnesses for information about whether the UAE tried to buy political influence by giving money to the Trump campaign, according to The New York Times.

Nader has been a frequent visitor to the Trump White House. And the president has praised the UAE for the Persian Gulf nation’s efforts to work with the United States on economic issues and squashing terrorism in the region, thanking Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed for his efforts just last week, according to the White House.

so, nothing on Russia, moving to the Middle East for something, anything, to try to justify the millions that Mueller has paid his employee cronies

Must be approved by Rosenstein who is approved by Sessions.

This has gone on long enough. The whole lot of the Suits at the “Justice Department “ need to be replaced with honest, non Deepers.

Lebanon has been known since the 50’s as where the CIA and KGB cut deals and pass information.

Its also where Huma got her start in the State Dept, probably in a “private enterprise” where she was well paid.
Very common in The Leb.

UAE Russians. That's the worst kind.

This should go without saying but I'll point it out anyway: all sorts of governments and private entities attempt to gain influence with politicians through support of their campaigns, both overt and under the table. Attempting isn't illegal.

Now, what happens if there actually is influence is another matter. For example, if the Russians were to have given a Cabinet secretary $145 million shortly before being granted purchase rights for a significant fraction of, say, uranium ore, why, I'm sure Mueller would be interested in that.

Yeah. I'm sure he would.

This guy is completely off his chartered mission and trying to orchestrate a full on coup.

Congress needs to shut this down.

I must admit to being troubled by the fact that DJT failed to return a copy of Top Gun to Blockbuster in 1983.

Personally believe Mueller is pushing the envelope trying to piss off Trump. Trying the tactic of making Trump come unglued to the point he fires Mueller. Mueller, and the Democrats, Deep State, Establishment are champing at the bit for President Trump to screw up, and fire Mueller, or Sessions for that matter so they can claim cover up, and instigate impeachment.

The actions of Mueller I interpret to be taunting, bullying type tactics in attempt to cause President Trump to fire him.

It’s a tactic he should know won’t work, but then he’s one of the flock.

A tack that would indicate Mueller's investigation is actually over, and he's just pretending it's not, running up the bill until somebody notices.

SO let me get this straight. If Sessions agrees to this, I would say, he IS the enemy. Just my .02 for the day.

The source for this insight into the inner workings of Mueller’s team is the NY Times. Ignore at your leisure.

I guess Mueller is not interested in the 250 million given by Russian Oligarths to the Clinton Foundation and 500 thousand dollar speaking fee to Bill Clinton.

It should be noted that the Russian Oligarths are mostly ex KGB and they do not have one ounce of charity in them. When they give millions they are buying something.

Mueller es un gusano. “Muller is a worm.” The insult is much worse in Spanish.
