Washington Post Deletes Article On Mueller Witness Being A Pedophile

By  Ryan Saavedra

In mid-March, The Washington Post published a report on their website from the Associated Press that documented the fact that a supposed cooperating witness in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is a convicted pedophile. The Post has now deleted the article, without providing any sort of explanation or retraction.

The article, titled “Nader, Mueller’s latest cooperator, a convicted pedophile,” was published on March 15 and documented George Nader’s “15-year-old pedophilia conviction in Europe that has not been previously reported.”

However, at some point over the last couple of weeks, The Washington Post decided to delete the article without offering any explanation or retraction. (A digital archive can be viewed here.)

Regarding Nader’s pedophilia-related conviction, the report stated:

Nader was convicted by Prague’s Municipal Court of 10 cases of sexually abusing minors and sentenced to a one-year prison term in May 2003, said Marketa Puci, the court spokeswoman. She said the crimes occurred between 1999 and 2002. …

In one case, Nader requested oral sex from a 14-year-old in a room at the Hilton Hotel in Prague, Puci said. After the boy refused, Nader masturbated in front of the boy and paid him 2,000 koruna — worth about $100 today, she said.

The verdict cites other examples of Nader providing money, jewelry, cellphones, clothes and accommodation for sexual services. The AP was able to see a copy of the verdict, which gives Nader’s birthdate as May 15, 1959. Nader was separately accused in Washington, D.C., of child pornography infractions in 1985, but those charges were later dropped. A criminal docket sheet obtained by the AP shows the same birthdate for Nader.

The report documents how Mueller stopped Nader, who has a history of being an “international fixer,” while he was traveling through Dulles International Airport. According to the report, Nader’s electronic devices were seized and he later agreed to cooperate with Mueller’s investigation after he met with his lawyer.

Sources that spoke to the Post said that Mueller is interested in high-level get-togethers that Nader was involved in after the 2016 election, which suggests that his interest in Nader has nothing to do with the alleged collusion between Trump campaign officials and Russian officials, which is what his investigation was supposed to be about.
