Billionaire Tom Barrack Charged With Acting As Agent Of UAE To Gain Favor With Trump

Thomas Barrack, the 74-year-old billionaire founder of private equity form Colony Capital - who served as chairman of the 2017 inaugural fund for then-President Donald Trump - was arrested on federal charges in Los Angeles on Tuesday morning.

He is accused of acting and conspiring to act as an agent of the UAE between April 2016 and April 2018, Justice Dept says in statement.

The Indictment also charges Barrack with obstruction of justice and making multiple false statements during a June 20, 2019, interview with federal law enforcement agents.

Barrack and other defendants “repeatedly capitalized on Barrack’s friendships and access to a candidate who was eventually elected President, high-ranking campaign and government officials, and the American media to advance the policy goals of a foreign government without disclosing their true allegiances,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Mark Lesko.
