TRUMP WHITE HOUSE ASSOCIATE GEORGE NADER WAS CONVICTED ON CHILD PORN CHARGES IN VIRGINIA

Article: In 1985, federal authorities charged Nader for importing sexually explicit materials, including magazines and pictures that depicted “nude boys,” and other materials showing boys “engaged in a variety of sexual acts,” according to federal court records.

Just to believe something detestable about someone associated with someone you find detestable does not completely cut it for me. Rather, I would prefer to see a blanket condemnation of "this activity" on every level no matter who engages in it. Recently I was told by an apologist in Jomtien: "I let everyone else 'live and let live' doing whatever they like" when the subject of child abuse was mentioned. Any level of verbal 'acceptance' by a broader group, to those who used to be laughed at as 'chicken hawks,' by the rest of us (whether a child is male or female) allows the larger world to presume we are part of it. Ever felt exploited, violated and betrayed? It is not OK to give aide or comfort to anyone who would exploit anyone else.

I seem to be missing something. I can find virtually nothing in that article other than its heading to suggest that Nader was a "White House Associate". What seems clear is that he was known to be an adviser to Zayed and the United Arab Emirates. In that capacity he was involved in one meeting with Kushner and Bannon in December 2016. He seems also to have attended other meetings. As far as I can read, he then had nothing officially to do with the White House or the transition team. There is a suggestion that one of the reasons for the meetings was to set up a back channel between the Trump team and Russia. Nadir also attended the Seychelles meeting, but It was Zayed who had attended the meeting at the Trump team's behest. It seems Nadir tagged along with Zayed who was paying him. That is what Mueller is investigating.

From other articles it is clear that both Saudi Arabia and the UAE were pro Trump in his bid for the Presidency. Also clear is that Nadir was no shrinking violet. He craved power and money. According to a New York Times article published last May, Nadir had a plan to use private contractors to help destabilise Iran.

after those initial offers of help [from social media specialist, Joel Zame], Mr. Nader was quickly embraced as a close ally by Trump campaign advisers — meeting frequently with Jared Kushner, Mr. Trump’s son-in-law, and Michael T. Flynn, who became the president’s first national security adviser. At the time, Mr. Nader was also promoting a secret plan to use private contractors to destabilize Iran, the regional nemesis of Saudi Arabia and the Emirates.

So Nadir was an ally to the campaign, not a formal associate. I think there is quite a difference.

Incidentally, surely this thread should be in the Everything Else forum? There is nothing "gay" about it.

Good point. I've moved the topic.
