Mueller Probe Witness George Nader Arrested on Child Porn Charges

George Nader, a Lebanese-American businessman who cooperated with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and whose name appeared more than 100 times in Mueller’s Russia report, was arrested Monday on charges of transporting child pornography.

According to court documents, Nader was charged after he arrived at Washington-Dulles International Airport in Virginia from Dubai in January 2018 in possession of an iPhone containing “multiple files which appeared to contain child pornography.”

The iPhones were seized in connection with a search warrant. The affidavit said that the search warrant, which is still under seal, was in connection with “another matter” not connected to child pornography.

Twelve different videos “of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct” were found on one of the three iPhones, according to the criminal complaint.

Nader pleaded guilty to a federal child-pornography charge in Virginia in 1991. If convicted on the new charges, he faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years in prison and a maximum of 40 years.
