A US federal judge ordered on Friday George Nader, who served as an “informal” Donald Trump advisor and who cooperated with Mueller’s investigation to remain in jail until his trial on child pornography charges.

George Aref Nader is a Lebanese-American businessman, lobbyist, and convicted sex offender.

He has acted as an unofficial liaison between Washington politicians and Middle Eastern officials, especially in the UAE and Saudi Arabia as he is one of the closes friends to both Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia and Mohammed bin Zayed of the UAE.

Under the judge’s order late Friday, George Nader will stay in jail until his trial for transporting child pornography.

The judge cited the threat that Nader poses to the community. The next hearing on Nader’s case is scheduled for Monday at the federal courthouse in Alexandria, Virginia.

If convicted of this latest charge, Nader would face at least 15 years in prison, according to federal law. He hasn’t had a chance to enter a plea, though his lawyers referred to the charge as an “allegation” and sought to downplay his Czech conviction for sexual contact with minors.
