Glenn Kirschner: Trump Associate Tom Barrack Indicted for 7 Felony Crimes, Unlawfully Acted as Foreign Agent


July 21, 2021

Longtime friend and associate Tom Barrack has been indicted for unlawfully acting as a foreign agent for the United Arab Emirates, (UAE) conspiracy, obstructing justice and repeatedly lying to the FBI to cover up his crimes. Barrack served as the Chairman of the Trump inaugural committee, which is also under investigation for possible financial crimes. The 46-page indictment paints a disturbing picture of Barrack being directed by his Emirati handlers from the UAE national security and military agencies to push UAEs priorities and policies in the United States. The indictment related that the Emirati officials would tell Barrack to “praise” certain UAE officials and policies and Barrack would dutifully go on national TV and do exactly as he was directed. This video discusses the important take-aways from the indictment of Tom Barrack.
