George Nader, the disgraced & recently indicted child sex trafficker & child porn aficionado is in the thick of Team Trump global shenanigans from the notorious Seychelles meet to Qatar Blockade to Psy Group & more.

But prior to the 2016elex in addition to RU’s efforts to influence the American electorate in favor of Trump, ME foreign actors also assisted w/ the SocMed influence ops to help Trump & harm Cruz/HRC.

Nader among others were key to these influence ops to swing the elex to Trump

How do you drain the Swamp? By putting out bait to lure them into traps, honey traps need to have the best bait. The greatest bait you've ever seen. Just like you have to provide bait to make the MSM cover the draining of the Swamp! #ButNothingsHappening!
There is nothing Swampier than a Presidential transition & inauguration. Especially to a President where the Swamp creatures don't have a preexisting relationship. Makes them easy prey as they try to buy access to the new President!

A federal grand jury is now also supposedly looking into Elliot Broidy's investment firms and defense contracts.

His defense contracting company, Circinus, signed its first contract in 2014 w/ INSCOM for intelligence services.

They also asked for records on UAE's George Nader.
Both Broidy annd Nader also link back to the #1MDB scandal, which is interesting since Hollywood & Wolf of Wall Street producer Reza Aziz was just arrested in Malaysia for money laundering in the 1MDB case.
