This guy is busy!

Elliott Broidy, a top fundraiser for Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and, at the time, the Republican National Committee, pleaded guilty Tuesday to a single charge of conspiring to serve as an unregistered foreign agent.

He faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine and has agreed to forfeit $6.6 million he was paid for his work.

... The charge is related to his efforts to arrange meetings with top U.S. officials to help quash a U.S. investigation into the 1MDB Malaysian embezzlement scheme and to push for the deportation of Chinese dissident Guo Wengui.

Broidy...Broidy. That name rings a bell somehow...

Broidy’s work to help politicians in other countries, including Romania, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, aren’t part of the indictment.

....including taking $2.5M from the UAE’s Crown Prince to help “demonize” Qatar in the US, which found a sympathetic ear in this administration.

But no, that’s not it.

[Previously], Broidy pleaded guilty in New York for his role in a pension pay-to-play scheme, admitting he had doled out nearly $1 million in favors to New York state pension officials in return for their $250 million investment in Markstone Capital, the Israel-focused investment fund he co-founded.

No, not that either.

He resigned from his position [as vice chair of RNC fundraising] a year later, after reports surfaced that he had arranged a payment through fellow RNC fundraiser Michael Cohen of $1.6 million to a former Playboy Playmate he had impregnated after she said she was going to have an abortion.

Ah. Yeah, that’s it. Like I said, busy guy (and obviously, multiple-felon). One of Trump’s “only the best people”.

Of course, it’s not in the same league as Joe arranging with Hunter to get a cut of the Chinese action, at least according to Hunter’s former partner who also confirmed getting those emails found on the Mac the guy who was blind turned over to handy-pants Rudy. Bet you won’t hear about that on the lame stream media.

Trump would kill for his hair and the color of his complexion.

He’s such a looker. No wonder a Playboy centerfold 25 years his junior fell for him.

I mean, what else could it have been?
