According to a report from CNN, Barrack was indicted last week for lobbying on behalf of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for "what federal prosecutors in Brooklyn described as an effort to influence the foreign policy positions of both the 2016 Trump presidential campaign and the subsequent incoming administration."

In that seven-count indictment, the wealthy businessman was also charged with obstruction of justice and lying to federal law enforcement agents.

The UAE is the world's largest pyramid scheme.


“Behind every great fortune,” wrote Balzac, “lies a great crime.”
On Monday, Tom Barrack, the business titan and Trump confidante, pleaded not guilty in New York to his indictment for failing to register as a foreign agent and repeatedly lying to the FBI about it. Last Friday, Barrack had been released from three days in jail on a record-setting $250 million bail.
That was what the judge decided was needed to ensure Barrack’s future court appearances.

And this makes me wonder about all those fucking arms deals and Jared Kushner magically getting bailed out on that 666 building of his in Manhattan.
