One of Trump's pals arrested foreign lobbying for UAE

Trump’s Inaugural Committee Chair Arrested on Federal Charges

 

The chairman of former President Donald Trump’s 2017 inaugural fund has been arrested on federal charges for illegally lobbying on behalf of the United Arab Emirates, the Department of Justice said Tuesday.

Thomas Barrack, 74, faces charges of foreign lobbying, obstructing justice, and making false statements, according to the DOJ. Two others—Aspen resident Matthew Grimes, 27, and UAE national Rashid Sultan Rashid Al Malik Alshahhi, 43—also face foreign lobbying charges.

“The defendants repeatedly capitalized on Barrack’s friendships and access to a candidate who was eventually elected President, high-ranking campaign and government officials, and the American media to advance the policy goals of a foreign government without disclosing their true allegiances,” said acting Assistant Attorney General Mark Lesko of the Justice Department’s National Security Division.
