If you want to talk about foreign influence in our American government and elections look no further than Barack Hussein Obama.
New documents show that a wealthy Saudi Arabian businessman used a “middle man” to funnel $850K dollars to Barack Hussien Obama so he could pay for his second inauguration festivities.
Why did Obama accept this payment? And will the DOJ now open up an investigation into this very serious matter?

When President Barack Obama was reelected in 2012, a Saudi tycoon and his business associate sent hundreds of thousands of dollars to the U.S. to help pay for the inaugural celebration.
And speaking of “quid pro quo” the man sent the absurd amount of cash in order to get a picture with the president, according to court documents and an analysis of campaign finance records by The Associated Press.
It doesn’t matter if it’s Democrat or Republican we need to keep these wealthy foreigners out of all aspects of our government because they do not have an “America First” agenda, ever.
When President Barack Obama was reelected in 2012, a Saudi tycoon and his business associate sent hundreds of thousands of dollars to the U.S. to help pay for the inaugural celebration and get a picture with the president, according to court documents and an analysis of campaign finance records by The Associated Press.
U.S. election law prohibits foreign nationals from making those sorts of political contributions. But the donations Sheikh Mohammed Al Rahbani tried to send to Obama’s inaugural committee were funneled through a seasoned straw donor, the records and the AP analysis show.
That intermediary, Imaad Zuberi, agreed this month to plead guilty to making illegal campaign contributions to several American political candidates on behalf of foreign nationals. He is also set to plead guilty to concealing his work as a foreign agent as he lobbied high-level U.S. government officials.
The prosecution by the U.S. attorney in Los Angeles is the latest in a string of cases that highlight the prevalence of banned foreign money in American politics and the often lax approach campaigns take in vetting contributions.
Zuberi’s case raises questions about the degree to which political committees vet donors. One campaign, not identified by name, accepted donations made in the name of one of Zuberi’s dead relatives, prosecutors said. Another political committee took donations from a person Zuberi invented.
Some donations reported by political campaigns were made in Rahbani’s and others’ names but were paid for with credit cards belonging to Zuberi or his wife, prosecutors said. [AP]
