How Clean Was That Testimony?

Hmmmm.....

Washington (CNN) George Nader, who was a key witness in special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation, was arrested on child pornography charges Monday in New York, federal prosecutors announced Monday.

Nader was arrested upon arrival at John F. Kennedy International Airport for "transporting visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct."

He previously pleaded guilty to the same charge in 1991, the Justice Department said.

If convicted, he faces a minimum sentence of 15 years in prison and a maximum of 40 years.

He was arrested Monday (6/3/2019.)

He was caught on January 17th 2018.

The same day he started "cooperating" with Mueller and ultimately testified before the Grand Jury.

Was his testimony truthful?

It certainly appears it was coerced (facing 15 years of hard time, especially as a second offense for the same thing, and for child porn at that) has a funny way of coercing people to say whatever you want them to say, and I bet the Grand Jury wasn't told that he had been caught with child pornography and then "magically" decided to cooperate.

RIGHT MULLER?

After all, that's how Grand Juries work.  You don't get any exculpatory evidence introduced to one, and in addition there is no cross-examination.

The Mueller report extensively cites him, specifically related to a meeting in January 2017 regarding a banker with ties to Putin.

Does this mean he was lying? Not necessarily.

But it certainly goes to credibility; his testimony was hardly "freely given."

That's just outrageous. **** like that makes me wonder if the charges are even true.

Yep.

Note that Mueller has a HISTORY of leaving people to rot in prison he KNOWS didn't do it. Specifically, a murder. Two of the convicted (falsely so) DIED IN PRISON; the other two wound up with a ****-ton of money in a lawsuit after their release.

Mueller KNEW they were railroaded -- factually knew -- and did nothing about it because to expose it would have been to expose that the FBI had people ON THE TAKE FROM THE MAFIA. He therefore did nothing and let two men die in prison for a crime HE KNEW they did not commit.

Why would they threaten charges to get his testimony and then later arrest him anyway? Doesn't that tell the next guy to not cooperate and take your chances?

Indeed it does @Budget-racer -- you're going to burn anyway, so why are you cooperating?

This is one of those "nasty reality" deals....

Mueller's treatment of all conservatives in this matter showed how dirty he is. He ran for cover because now the right people will be asking the questions and he may end up in the same prison with the rest of the deep state scum.

A search warrant was issued on a matter unrelated to the child porn. They found the porn but sealed the arrest warrant and Nader was evidently unaware of the fact that they had found the porn on his (unlocked?) I-phone???

So Nader was voluntarily cooperating with Mueller without being coerced?

Or was Mueller dangling an even bigger carrot than just a more lenient sentence? "you say what we want you to say and the phone disappears".

@Budget, lots of lessons here. Never talk to the cops unless your lawyer makes/keeps your own recording. Never cooperate without an airtight immunity agreement.

Testimony was as clean as a five year old twenty dollar bill.

Feel free to use liberal amounts of antiseptic after handling.

I think we need the Death Penalty for being found guilty of violating the public trust by 95% of a jury of fifty or firing with no benefits including any retirement pay by 80% of said jury. Jury to be selected at random.

The Washington Post has a lot of past details regarding Nader and getting caught in '85, '88, and '91, and Prague in May 2003 (10 cases of sexually abusing minors). In '91 he was sentenced to 6 months with work release and 2003 given a 1 year sentence. The government helped him out in the past because he was such an asset. Crazy!

What about Cohen? You think they didn't have the crap on him long before this started. I think it was Nader in a picture with Epstein and Slick Willy a few weeks ago. DC is the only place the criminals do the prosecution.

Bigger question:

Was this dude chosen from a wide pool of compromised deep state actors?

How much pedo **** is in the elites of DC? Im betting quite a lot.
