President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has already been tied to Russia and was found to have had a secret meeting with Sergey Gorkov, the head of a major Russian state bank. In June, The New York Times reported:
‘Russian banks conduct legitimate business with law-abiding companies around the world, including American banks. But their close ties to the Russian government make Mr. Kushner’s meeting with Mr. Gorkov worthy of deeper scrutiny. Mr. Gorkov is part of the Putin power vertical. When Mr. Kushner spoke to him, he was also talking to the Kremlin, and we should know what they discussed.’
Now, it seems that Kushner has ties to the American ambassador to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), who in a recent investigative report by The Intercept was found to be leading a double life filled with sex trafficking and money laundering.
The UAE diplomat, Yousef Al Otaiba, was the subject of email leaks earlier this summer. Those emails revealed Otaiba’s double life of hard partying and buying trafficked women. Otaiba’s scandals are not all that new. They date back to George W. Bush’s presidency. One excerpt of The Intercept’s report detailed how Otaiba went about rounding up his friends to celebrate his success at getting Arab leaders to get behind Bush’s push to get more troops in the war in Iraq.
Otaiba launched a grand scheme that involved him renting penthouse suites at The MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas during NBA All-Star weekend. He called the event “Operation Dumbo Drop” and then asked his friend Byron Fogan for “legal help” on how to get women to have sex with that weekend.
Fogan had already been charged with embezzling over $1 million from Otaiba’s non-profit. Otaiba asked in his emails:
‘Is my diplomatic immunity valid in Vegas?’
Fogan, a law student at the time, responded:
‘As long as we get consent, I don’t think legal troubles will face us.’
So Fogan drew up what he called a “portable contract” for the trafficked girls to sign which read:
‘I, (insert name of dumb girl), agree to let (insert name of one of us filthbags) hit it. I (insert dumb broad’s name again–if her drunk ass can remember it), am at least 18 years old. Signed (little chicks signature).’
Roman Paschal, a friend Otaiba met at a Washington D.C. strip club, attended many of his parties but later dropped out of the group of the friends. He said:
‘He was never present when women were sent. You can’t say that [Otaiba] is a human trafficker – he’s not. But some of the girls I was sent over there were trafficked girls.’
Paschal, in his interview with The Intercept, recalled one party at Otaiba’s Abu Dhabi apartment, saying the men were told “pick who you want” and that girl would be theirs until noon the next day. About seven women were wearing long cloaks, and when they revealed what was underneath they were wearing skimpy “nightclub clothes.” Paschal admitted he picked a woman from Romania.
Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner is close to Yousef Al Otaiba, and reportedly speaks to the UAE Ambassador at least once a week regarding Middle East policy. Read the whole report here.
