Mueller has flipped himself another co-operating witness: George Nader. CNN is reporting that George Nader is a Middle East specialist who attended secret meetings between the United Arab Emirates and Trump associates in 2016 during the transition.
Apparently, Nader was intercepted by the FBI at Dulles International Airport in January and since then, he has been spilling the beans to Mueller and providing information to the grand jury. Nader attended some meetings that Mueller is particularly interested in:
Nader attended a December 2016 meeting in New York between Emirati officials and members of Trump’s inner circle, and another in January 2017 in the Seychelles islands between the Emiratis and Erik Prince, a Trump associate. Nader was also in the Seychelles when Prince met with a Russian banker, the sources said.
The December meeting, which was kept secret from the Obama administration, was attended by Flynn, Bannon, and Kushner. Kushner is the only one who is still around, but reports surfaced last week that multiple countries, including United Arab Emirates believe they have “leverage” on Kushner that would make him susceptible to manipulation. Perhaps Nader is one of the sources providing this intel.
Seth Abramson points out that Nader’s co-operation is bad news for Erik Prince:
BREAKING NEWS: Among many other things, this "man of mystery" news means that Erik Prince lied repeatedly to Congress and can likely be charged with a felony. He said his trip had nothing to do with Trump and left George Nader entirely out of his testimony, clearly deliberately. https://t.co/rHyolezYNY

Nader has a reputation for being well connected and a “man of mystery”, as Abramson mentions in his tweet. Sounds like exactly the kind of guy who can quietly bring down the whole house of cards. The fact that he is fully co-operating with Mueller, can’t be good news for Trump. And if I was Kushner right now, I’d be shaking in my boots.
