The Associated Press has unleashed a bombshell investigation into Trump fund-raiser Elliott Broidy. If you haven’t read the piece yet, feel free to jump over and take a gander. I’ll wait.

Back? Good.

The piece is a monster, with loads of sordid details about a key Trump ally’s nefarious foreign dealings. There are, of course, Russia ties. I’ll leave it to more seasoned watchers of Robert S. Mueller III to explain the intricacies and larger implications of the piece and how it all plays into the special counsel’s investigation.



It’s this little nugget in the piece that has me captivated:

Our president apparently agreed to pose with a convicted pedophile for little more than the price of a fully-loaded Tesla.


The man you see mugging with the president in the photo above is named George Nader. In 2003, he was convicted of 10 counts of sexually abusing underage boys — some as young as 14. He spent a year in a Czech Republic prison as a consequence.

How on Earth was the president allowed to be photographed — in front of the American flag, no less — with a such a person?

Presidents take thousands of photos, you might say, if you’re a regular The_Donald commenter. This was probably just a case of a receiving line that went horribly awry.

According to the Associated Press, this was not one of those cases.

Nader, you see, is a friend and business partner of Broidy's — who, remember, is a key Trump fund-raiser. After leveraging his connections with crown princes from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirate, purportedly on Trump’s behalf, Nader, the Associated Press says, wanted a photo with the president as a show of gratitude.

The Secret Service denied Nader’s request. That was until Broidy reached out personally to Trump’s chief of staff, John Kelly.

Here’s what followed, according to the Associated Press:

Republican National Committee “officials had decreed there would be no photos with the president without payment. Broidy suggested that Nader meet the suggested threshold with a donation between $100,000 and $250,000.”

Sure enough, Nader got his photo. Campaign finance records show a Broidy RNC donation around this time in the amount of $189,000 — an amount, the Associated Press says, that’s greater than he had ever pledged in his decades as a Republican donor.

So, it seems, the billionaire who once bragged on the campaign trail “I don’t need anybody’s money. … I’m really rich.” is apparently willing to lend the weight of his office to a convicted pedophile for the price of a few Sean Hannity ad buys. And the RNC is on board.

Is it Morning Yet?

John Wayne Gacy was famously photographed with Rosilyn Carter, when a long line of hefty donors are shoved in front of you for PR purposes, it's unreasonable to background check every single one of them. Does anyone who didn't already irrationally hate Don think he did this on purpose as a wink-wink to Russian pedos? Doubt it.

So how long before some lefty walks in to some Trump hotel with a gun saying they're saving the kids?
