Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Something trying something about trying to stop his client from continuing to cooperate with the special counsel with robert muller nader's lawyer is calling it quote an orchestrated disgusting scheme by those who are trying to intimidate mr nadir into silence so that is intriguing and the criminal charges are what they were but why is all this press coming out about them now right we can't know for sure where it's all coming from why it's all coming out now including previously sealed court documents but there's one interesting thing here that i think is worth pointing out in involves that one thousand nine hundred five indictment against george nader these are charges that were later dropped a court ruled that the search warrant used to obtain evidence from nader's home was not properly obtained the prosecutor at the time who tried and failed to bring that case who brought those charges couldn't get a conviction and then one thousand nine hundred five case his name was joseph degen of it was the us attorney for the district of columbia at the time and guess who just got hired as donald trump's new russia lawyer in the russia probe joseph degen of same guy the guy who tried but ultimately failed to convict george nader on those obscenity charges all the way back in nineteen eightyfive so he's coming back into the public eye being brought on at the white house just as the public is learning all of these deep buried details about jordan haters criminal past george nader robert muller's latest cooperating witness i don't know if it is a coincidence that both of these things are coming to light at the same.
