California CEO and Seven Others Charged in Multi-Million Dollar Conduit Campaign Contribution Case

Earlier today, an indictment was unsealed against the CEO of an online payment processing company, and seven others, charging them with conspiring to make and conceal conduit and excessive campaign contributions, and related offenses, during the U.S. presidential election in 2016 and thereafter.

Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division and Assistant Director in Charge Timothy R. Slater of the FBI’s Washington Field Office made the announcement.

A federal grand jury in the District of Columbia indicted Ahmad “Andy” Khawaja, 48, of Los Angeles, California, on Nov. 7, 2019, along with George Nader, Roy Boulos, Rudy Dekermenjian, Mohammad “Moe” Diab, Rani El-Saadi, Stevan Hill and Thayne Whipple. The 53 count indictment charges Khawaja with two counts of conspiracy, three counts of making conduit contributions, three counts of causing excessive contributions, 13 counts of making false statements, 13 counts of causing false records to be filed, and one count of obstruction of a federal grand jury investigation. Nader is charged with conspiring with Khawaja to make conduit campaign contributions, and related offenses. Boulos, Dekermenjian, Diab, El-Saadi, Hill, and Whipple are charged with conspiring with Khawaja and each other to make conduit campaign contributions and conceal excessive contributions, and related offenses.

According to the indictment, from March 2016 through January 2017, Khawaja conspired with Nader to conceal the source of more than $3.5 million in campaign contributions, directed to political committees associated with a candidate for President of the United States in the 2016 election. By design, these contributions appeared to be in the names of Khawaja, his wife, and his company. In reality, they allegedly were funded by Nader. Khawaja and Nader allegedly made these contributions in an effort to gain influence with high-level political figures, including the candidate. As Khawaja and Nader arranged these payments, Nader allegedly reported to an official from a foreign government about his efforts to gain influence.

The indictment also alleges that, from March 2016 through 2018, Khawaja conspired with Boulos, Dekermenjian, Diab, El-Saadi, Hill, and Whipple to conceal Khawaja’s excessive contributions, which totaled more than $1.8 million, to various political committees. Among other things, these contributions allegedly allowed Khawaja to host a private fundraiser for a presidential candidate in 2016 and a private fundraising dinner for an elected official in 2018.

The indictment further alleges that, from June 2019 through July 2019, Khawaja obstructed a grand jury investigation of this matter in the District of Columbia. Knowing that a witness had been called to testify before the grand jury, Khawaja allegedly provided that witness with false information about Nader and his connection to Khawaja’s company. Boulos, Diab, Hill, and Whipple also are charged with obstructing the grand jury’s investigation by lying to the FBI.

Currently, Nader is in federal custody on other charges.

An indictment is not a finding of guilt. It merely alleges that crimes have been committed. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

The FBI’s Washington Field Office is investigating the case and Deputy Chief John D. Keller and Trial Attorneys James C. Mann and Michael J. Romano of the Criminal Division’s Public Integrity Section are prosecuting the case.

Nader also funneled $1million to the Trump campaign. He was paying for play regardless of which campaign won.

What really is under reported here is Nader had yet again child pornography and beastiality pornography on 3 different phones he had and was charged for a second time of transporting child pornography

This is the 3rd time this guy has been caught with this filth....first in 1985 second time in 1991 and again in 2019

And he still had the ability to get this close to Trump and Clinton's campaigns.

Washington is a SH**HOLE

Also forgot to mention the donations to Trumps inaugural fund where investigated last year. No charges where brought up then not sure if it's covered in this indictment. WaPo keeps you guessing about the news.
Looks like that $1 million got him a spot helping out Trump. Guy was buying himself influence regardless who won the election


For his part, Nader became a Trump team contact in 2016, eventually acting as a go-between for officials in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia and meeting with Jared Kushner, Steve Bannon and others.


The Mueller report noted of Nader that he “developed contacts with both U.S. presidential campaigns during the 2016 election,” and that he kept Kirill Dmitriev, the chief executive of the Russian Direct Investment Fund, updated on his contacts.

Nader arranged a meeting between Dmitriev and blackwater founder Erik Prince after Trump’s election in the Seychelles in January 2017.

Then Trump's Justice Department cuffed and stuffed him for child porn and trafficking. Guess he should have donated more. Why you gotta leave out little details like that.

Never mind missed your first post.

Geez I sure wish your buddies in here looked to sources like that instead of the darkest corners of the netherworld.
Wish you looked at the actual documents behind the reports then you would realize how screwed up journalism has become. MSM is the worst. At least the right wing media mostly puts a right leaning spin on the actual documentation. Stuff coming from the left is pure made up nonsense from anonymous sources.

It's like you have 2 personalities:

1 that's actually rational & recognizes the nefarious actions & intentions of both sides of the aisle

& 1 that runs around like a crazy person retweeting outrageously biased claims & "reports"



Having said that, yes, DC's full of power, money, & fame-seekers who use elected office to better their situations. When you fall back on personality #2 above, you don the cloak of naivete. I don't know how much history one has to witness to realize that it isn't a situation where one group's wearing white hats & simply follows noble convictions.

After the Mueller investigation found it on his phone. Without the Mueller investigation he would have never been caught

Trump's campaign never returned the money

Nader was also at the Trump Tower meeting

You leaving out the details here too

Nope...Just 1 and if you can't see that Trump and the people who surround him aren't just as nefarious and have misguided intentions as HRC or any other Dem then you don't understand rationality

A rational person understands that we haven't had a good leader with the best of intentions and willingness to "truly" serve this country in a VERY long time
