Tonight Rachel Maddow continued her groundbreaking reporting on the nefarious deeds of one Elliott Broidy and one George Nader. Broidy is the deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee as well as a frequent drop-in at the Oval Office. Nader, who might best be described as “Broidy’s sidekick” is well connected to both the ruler of the U.A.E and the crown prince of Saudi Arabia. Incidentally, in 2009, Broidy confessed to distributing $1 million in bribes and, in 2003, the Czech Republic convicted Nader of pedophilia. Quite the pair of sterling characters! Just the kind of lowlifes you’d expect to gravitate to Trump’s White House.
News just broke that Mueller granted Nader immunity as a cooperating witness and has summoned him back from overseas for further testimony – a sure sign we’re onto something bigly here.
Rachel interviewed, Mark Mazzetti, a New York Times reporter, who is currently sifting through a huge trove of leaked documents that appear to reveal a multi-million dollar influence peddling operation concocted by this duo. Here’s Rachel’s penetrating analysis followed by the interview:
And here’s the NYT article co-authored by Mazzetti:
The takeaway: OK, I’m going out on a limb here, but I have a feeling this story is a veritable powder keg. We could be looking at a massive political corruption scheme fed by the promise of $1 billion in contracts of which $200 million has already been delivered by the U.A.E. The scheme may well involve the Republican National Committee and Trump himself. And this doesn’t even include the previously reported capers of these two bumbling Beagle Boys.
