"Tom Barrack, Trump’s friend and fund-raiser, is freed on $250 million bond."

From The New York Times:

The seven-count indictment unveiled this week accused Mr. Barrack of using his access to former President Donald J. Trump to advance the foreign policy goals of the United Arab Emirates, and then repeatedly misleading federal agents.

Federal prosecutors said Mr. Barrack had used his position as an outside adviser to Mr. Trump’s campaign to publicly promote the Emirates’ agenda while soliciting direction, feedback and talking points from senior Emirati officials.

Once Mr. Trump was elected, they said, Mr. Barrack invited senior Emirati officials to give him a “wish list” of foreign policy actions they wanted Washington to take within the first 100 days, first six months and first year of Mr. Trump’s term, and by the end of it, prosecutors said.
