The donations include $1 million to major Democratic super PAC, Priorities USA. All the major Dems got donations (including Adam Schiff, as I'm sure we will soon hear a lot) opensecrets.org/search?order=d…
Yes it appears Khawaja later donated to Trump inauguration as well. It does not appear that this is part of this indictment, though it is hard to tell without seeing the indictment itself (so far I can only find press release)
And Nader certainly was playing both sides. I write in my upcoming book #ElectionMeltdown about Nader's alleged work on social media manipulation with the Israeli company Psy group to benefit Trump. But why be surprised that Nader, now indicted on child porn charges,did this too?
Why would Khawaja donate heavily to Democrats and then to Trump after Trump won? To ask the question is to answer it.
#ELB: New DOJ Indictment Alleges Millions of Dollars in Foreign Money Illegally Funneled to Support Hillary Clinton in 2016 electionlawblog.org/?p=108264
Lots of people attacking by either disbelieving it involved the Democrats or pointing out that these donors also benefitted Trump. There's no indication Clinton knew of the foreign source of funds. It suggests the problem is with our post-Citizens United campaign finance laws.
If you are going to have a system where people can give $1 million or more to disclosing super pacs or non-disclosing 501c4s to try to influence campaigns, you are going to attract illegal foreign money that is very hard to police. I think that was Obama's point cc: @RonaldKlain
Now can we get more of the Mueller report unredacted?
Here's an early @washingtonpost story on the indictments, noting the donations to help Clinton get elected and for the Trump inauguration
Going to be hard for Trump to make hay out of this given that his inauguration committee got $1 million from the indicted guy, but he could try.
