Mueller investigation witness pleads guilty to child sex crime charges
George Nader, a Lebanese American businessman who served as a witness in former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, pleaded guilty to two charges relating to sexual exploitation of children on Monday, according to The Washington Post.
Nader admitted in the Eastern District of Virginia to bringing a 14-year-old to the U.S. for sexual purposes and possession of child pornography, charges that collectively carry a maximum penalty of 30 years, according to the Post.
Eastern District of Virginia prosecutors agreed to recommend 10 years, the mandatory minimum, in the case, and agreed to recommend Nader, who is a dual citizen, be allowed to voluntarily leave the U.S. following his incarceration, according to the newspaper. His sentencing is set for April 10.
The plea also means prosecutors will not charge him for transportation for child pornography and obscene materials, nor will he face comparable charges in the Eastern District of New York, but he still faces campaign finance charges for donations to both Democrats and Republicans in Washington, D.C., federal court.
