Convicted pedophile George Nader (photo) met former chief strategist Steve Bannon in the White House more than a dozen times, according to leaked visitor logs
Leaked visitor logs reveal convicted pedophile George Nader met then-chief strategist Steve Bannon at the White House on at least 13 different occasions.
The non-public log is provided to the Washington examiner, who reported Tuesday that a source felt that the meetings with a convicted criminal & # 39; clearly & # 39; were problematic.
& # 39; They were always private gatherings, & # 39; the source added.
The west wing office of Bannon was only a few meters away from the Oval Office, but it is not clear whether he entertained Nader there or anywhere else in the White House.
Nader, 80, visited Bannon for the first time in the White House in February 2017, according to the logs, and stopped there because of Bannon's tenure, which ended in August 2017.
It is not clear whether Nader continued to visit the White House after Bannon was fired.
The Lebanese-American businessman also helped Bannon ensure a speaking performance after his deposition that paid $ 100,000.
Nader's rap magazine is long. In 1985, he was accused of receiving child pornography from the Netherlands, but these were withdrawn because of an invalid warrant. He was given a six-month prison sentence for transporting pornographic video tapes from Germany by young teenage boys. And in 2003, Nader served a year in prison after being convicted in Prague, Czech Republic for sexually abusing ten boys.
During Mueller's investigation last year, FBI agents inspected the three Nader mobile phones that were incidentally found on one photo and video of child pornography and beastliness.
In June 2019, he was arrested for owning child pornography, images of beastliness and transportation of child pornography. In July, unsealed court documents revealed that Nadler was also confronted with new federal charges for sex trafficking for alleged & # 39; sexual acts & # 39; with a 14-year-old boy he transported from Europe.
Nader is being held in Virginia awaiting trial.
The revelations of his visits to Bannon and the relationship between the two comes when Bannon appears to be back in the good graces of Trump & # 39; s inner circle.
The revelations of the 13 meetings come when Bannon finds his way back to the good graces of Trump. The president tweeted earlier this month that he & # 39; liked working with Bannon & # 39;
Sources claimed that Bannon was unaware of Nader's (abandoned) criminal record and that Trump's son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner introduced them to each other while planning the president's visit to Saudi Arabia in 2017
At the beginning of this month, Trump posted a video from a CNBC interview in which Bannon told how unlikely Democratic primary candidates would beat Trump in 2020.
& # 39; Nice to see that one of my best students is still a giant Trump fan, & # 39; Trump tweeted along with the interview clip. & # 39; Steve came to me after I won the primaries, but I loved working with him! & # 39;
Bannon left the right-wing Breitbart News, of which he was founder, in August 2016 in Trump's campaign as chief executive.
About two weeks after Trump posted the video on his Twitter, a report revealed that State Secretary Mike Pompeo spoke to Bannon and sought advice on whether he should explore a senate run in Kansas.
Since then, Pompeo has publicly excluded a run and claims that he will stick to the administration.
Several sources close to Bannon say that they have never heard him talk about having private meetings with Nader in the White House, or even mentioning his name.
Bannon was fired from his White House position shortly after the Unite the Rite meeting in Charlottesville, Virginia, which turned into violent clashes between those protesting the removal of the statue of Robert E. Lee and those who claimed it was racist was to keep it up.
Trump's chief strategist became a symbol of white nationalism & # 39; rejected in the White House and was blamed for the President's response to the clashes, which were considered inadequate.
Some reports claimed that the then White House chief of staff, John Kelly, asked Bannon to resign instead of being fired, but Bannon disputed this and claimed that he was only planning to & # 39; a year & # 39; spend with Trump from the moment he joined campaign in August 2016.
& # 39; John Kelly and Steve Bannon agree that Steve would be the last day today. We are grateful for his service and wish him the best & was the official statement from the White House on his departure.
Breitbart also announced the same day that Bannon would not return as the site's executive chairman.
Bannon's commentary also played a prominent role in Michael Wolff's exhibition, Fire and anger, furious Trump.
Nader was charged and convicted for various sexual crimes against children from 1985. He was prominent in the Russian probe of the former Special Council Robert Mueller.
He attended a meeting in December 2016 at Trump Tower with Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, and was also present at a rendezvous in January 2017 in the Seychelles with Erikwater founder Erik Prince and a Russian banker.
Nader was previously a consultant for Blackwater, a military contractor.
Nadler's rap magazine with child sex crimes dates back to the 1980s. New accusations were made against him after the Muller investigation occasionally found child pornography and images of brutality on one of his three mobile phones
Although the Russia investigation freed Trump from conspiracy with Russia, it did result in new child pornography and allegations of abuse for Nader.
A source told the publication that Bannon & # 39; had no knowledge of the criminal record of Nader & # 39 ;, and claimed that the secret service searched Nader before entering the White House, & # 39; suggesting that they too had zero knowledge & # 39 ;.
Instead, the person close to Bannon blamed Trump & his son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner.
& # 39; Bannon met George Nader through Jared Kushner during a meeting at Kushner's office; it seemed that Kushner had a long-term relationship with Nader, & said the person close to Bannon, adding that all Nader's visits with Bannon were focused on planning Trump's visit to Saudi Arabia in May 2017.
& # 39; Kushner led the planning process for the Riyadh Summit in early 2017 with (Deputy National Security Adviser) Dina Powell, of which Nader was a middle-level Middle Eastern official, & # 39; the source continued. & # 39; All Nader visits related to activities around the Riyadh Summit, for which dozens of planning and follow-up meetings were planned. & # 39;
