2015 Federal Election Finance Violations And Fraud Yields 2019 Plea Agreement

Oh my.

Major Obama/Clinton Fundraiser and Donor Pleads Guilty as Foreign Agent and Contributing Illegal Campaign Contributions…

By Sundance, the Conservative Treehouse

Boy howdy, this DOJ announcement is alarming on many levels.  Imaad Zuberi, a 49-year-old resident of Arcadia, California, has agreed to plead guilty to a variety of illegal activities surrounding campaign contributions, political influence, and unregistered lobbying on behalf of foreign clients.  Mr. Zuberi was under DOJ, FBI and IRS investigation since 2015 (<= important aspect on the alarming part).

Note the investigation has been ongoing since 2015, but charges were only filed now.

Campaign Fundraiser Agrees To Plead Guilty To Falsifying Records to Conceal Work as Foreign Agent, Evading Taxes on Income Obtained by Lobbying on Behalf of Foreign Entities, and Illegal Campaign Contributions

Federal prosecutors today filed a criminal case charging Imaad Shah Zuberi, a Southern California campaign fundraiser, with falsifying records to conceal his work as a foreign agent while lobbying high-level U.S. government officials. The criminal charges allege that Zuberi engaged in lobbying efforts that earned him millions of dollars, most of which was pilfered from his clients, and Zuberi has agreed to plead guilty to those charges at a later date, pursuant to a plea agreement.

Who, you might ask?  Who had influence for sale in 2015?

How much?

Zuberi delivered $615,000 to Hillary Clinton’s joint fundraising committee, Hillary Victory Fund and reportedly contributed between $250,000 and $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation. He gave $102,135 to the Obama Victory Fund in 2008 & bundled $500,000 for Obama in 2012.

And when the tide changed the targets changed.

With a $900,000 donation to the Trump Inaugural fund.

So, what do you think the media headlines are?
