7/3/19 sealed indictment, George #Nader
7/19/19 indictment unsealed

Just pulling some stuff out:

"Priv equity manager Elliott Broidy today pleaded guilty in NY State Supreme Court to a felony charge that he paid about $1M in bribes between 2002-2006 to four ofcls employed in the ofc of then-State Comptroller Alan Hevesi"

"Mr. Broidy's crime was “a plain, old-fashioned bribery scheme,” Mr. Cuomo said at a news conference, and is unrelated to the pay-to-play scheme involving private equity placement agents that his office has been investigating for two years."
"Mr. Broidy, co-founder and former chairman of Markstone Capital Group, admitted to bribing the four officials in the state comptroller's office to secure a $250 million commitment from the pension fund in Markstone Capital Partners, which invests in Israeli-based companies..."
"Dan Gillerman, chairman of the Israel Asso of Chambers of Commerce and the former Israeli ambassador to the UN, was named to replace Mr. Broidy as chairman of Markstone Capital (Israel) and will soon be appointed chairman of Markstone Capital (U.S.), according to a statement..."
"TEL AVIV—John Bolton, while serving as U.S. ambassador to the UN, went behind his boss’s back to supply Israel with crucial info on American plans at the UN and redirect U.S. policy.

That’s according to Israel’s former UN ambassador, Dan Gillerman"

"Gillerman was appointment was intended to calm Markstone's [Broidy] foreign investors following the bribery scandal. Market sources say that he was merely a figurehead for years, after the firm stopped making investments"

"Gillerman, a former Israeli ambassador to the UN, was appointed Markstone's chairman in 2009, following the scandal-ridden resignation of his predecessor, Elliot Broidy, who founded the firm. Broidy was convicted of bribing state pension officials..."
"...in the US in order to raise capital. Broidy still owns half of Markstone's management company, the other half of which is owned by Markstone managing partner Ron Lubash and the late Amir Kess."
"Markstone is one of the WORST-performing priv equity funds in the world...Markstone's financial report for the third quarter of 2013...show that since it was founded in 2004, its investors made a return on investment of just 3%..."


Alan Hevesi is the NY City Comptroller (city moneybag) that was allegedly bribed by Broidy.

Rudy Giuliani, was mayor of NYC at the time of Hevesi's tenure.

"As state comptroller, Hevesi faced a conflict of interest allegation in relation to a priv capital fund named Markstone Capital Partners...Hevesi, encouraged CA pension mgrs to invest in a priv capital fund founded by a man whose wife has been a generous donor to his..campaigns"
Alan Hevesi was a Dem, FYI. They play both sides/just look for whomever is greedy/corruptible.
Elliott Broidy is an octopus, lol:

"Hevesi's sons and aides face Pension Fund Investigation"

"Donald Trump's New Fundraiser's Israel Connection

The vice chairman of the Trump Victory Fund, Elliott Broidy, was removed as chairman of the Tel Aviv-based venture capital firm Markstone Capital Partners after paying bribes to pension fund managers"

"Broidy's appointment as vice chairman of the Trump Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee sponsored by Trump and the RNC, comes just wks after Steven Mnuchin, a Jewish Hollywood film producer and former Goldman Sachs executive, was named Trump's national finance chairman."
"In mid-2003, when Israel's finance minister, and now prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, visited New York and met with finance officials from New York's state government, the matter of the establishment of Markstone also came up."
"In the end...Markstone turned out to be one of the most resounding financial failures in the history of the Israel capital market. Broidy was removed as its chairman in...2009 after being accused of paying bribes to NY pension fund mgrs, allegations...he ultimately admitted to,"
"Broidy, who invested in the past in several Israeli startup companies, is understood to have extensive political ties in Israel. He was also a regular dinner partner of the late Prime Minister Ariel Sharon."
With Broidy's history: the pension scam conviction, Markstone's utter failure, it's shocking that GOP and Trump raised him up and gave him control of the finances.
I haven't found any connects between Broidy and Epstein, yet.

As you know, Broidy and Nader are associates.

Here, it says Nader knows Netanyahu: "In July, 1996, Nader hosted Netanyahu shortly after his first election as prime minister..."

This video shows both on the same stage.


"Prime Minister Netanyahu spoke to an audience of Arab and Muslim journalists, diplomats and others about his new government’s perspectives on the Middle East peace process..."

(7/10/96): George Nader and Netanyahu on stage for Nader's Middle East Insight press conference:
Netanyahu thanking George Nader for the Middle East Insight event, hopes it becomes a regular tradition, @ 45:00:
Correction, the comment is @ 18:00 (not 45:00)
It's striking to me that George #Nader is still standing on the stage next to Netanyahu, over 20 minutes later. This is definitely George's event.

@traciemac_Bmore Here's a link to George Nader's/Middle East Insight's other C-span videos:

@traciemac_Bmore Also, "Jonathan Kessler is an Exec Editor for the Middle East Insight w/7 videos in the C-SPAN Video Library; the first appearance was a 1997 Forum. The year w/the most videos was 1998 w/three videos. Most appearances w/George Nader (2), Paul Orgel (2)."

@traciemac_Bmore More on Jonathan Kessler, Director of Stragegic Initiatives, AIPAC:

@traciemac_Bmore "Previously at AIPAC from 1980 –1987, Jonathan developed AIPAC’s first-ever national student program, and co-authored The AIPAC College Guide: Exposing the Anti-Israel Campaign on Campus."
@traciemac_Bmore *Strategic
Thoughts: this bit is jumping out at me:


"In July, 1996, Nader hosted Netanyahu shortly after his FIRST ELECTION as prime minister..."

Netanyahu, newly elected, and he gets hooked up with this George Nader character. Kinda weird, no?🤔

"Jonathan Kessler, who is now AIPAC’s director of Strategic Initiatives, worked under [George] Nader as executive editor of the journal [Middle East Insight]."

"Nimrod Novik, a former policy adviser to then-prime minister Shimon Peres, told Newsweek that Nader came to the prime minister’s office offering to act as broker between Israel and Syria and Lebanon."
"Daniel Pipes wrote in The New Republic in 1999 that Nader led back-channel negotiations between Israel and Syria.

Martin Indyk, US ambassador to Israel who worked under...Clinton on a ME peace deal, said, “In the 1990s, George was a very effective under-the-radar operator..."
"The Road to Damascus
What Netanyahu Almost Gave Away [to Assad in 1998]"

"Nader was convicted by Prague’s Municipal Court of 10 cases of sexually abusing minors and sentenced to a one-year prison term in May 2003, said Marketa Puci, the court spokeswoman. She said the crimes occurred between 1999 and 2002."
Nader had worked in recent times as an adviser to bin Zayed [MBZ], one of the most powerful men in the ME, according to people who know Nader. The questioning of Nader in the Mueller probe suggests possible interest in UAE relations w/Trump’s transition team or his admin."
"In one case, Nader requested oral sex from a 14-year-old in a room at the Hilton Hotel in Prague, Puci said. After the boy refused, Nader masturbated in front of the boy and paid him 2,000 koruna — worth about $100 today, she said."
"Nader’s connections with Trump confidants include Elliott Broidy, a top Republican fundraiser who co-hosted a Tuesday night event attended by the president in Beverly Hills, California."
"several media orgs obtained emails belonging to Broidy...They show Broidy emailing Nader with a summary of Broidy’s talks with Kushner and Trump in the White House in 10/17, touching on matters including the UAE’s bitter dispute with fellow Persian Gulf country Qatar."
Broidy tried to sue Qatar, yet the lawsuit was tossed.

Just hooking these two up, Jonathan Kessler here as well:
