Donald Trump’s allies are dropping like flies. Yesterday we learned that federal prosecutors are seeking a four-plus year prison sentence for Republican Congressman Chris Collins who recently resigned and pleaded guilty; Collins had been the very first House Republican to endorse Trump. Now another Trump ally – and a particularly grotesque one at that – is looking at a far harsher prison sentence.
George Nader played a key role as an intermediary between the Donald Trump campaign and the Kremlin during the 2016 election cycle. For a period of time, Nader was cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller. But when it was all said and done, Nader was arrested for child pornography and transporting a minor for sex. Nader ended up pleading guilty to these particularly disgusting charges, and now he’s headed to prison for at least a decade.
That sentence seems far too lenient for Nader’s crimes, but at least he’ll finally be behind bars for an extended period of time, where he can’t harm any more children. Of course this comes after Donald Trump’s pal Jeffrey Epstein was arrested for raping underage girls; Epstein ended up dying in jail under highly suspicious circumstances.
Donald Trump seems to be surrounded by nothing but criminals, lowlifes, and scumbags. Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, Michael Cohen, George Papadopoulos, Roger Stone and other Trump associates have all been convicted and/or pleaded guilty to various felonies.
