Five things to know about Trump confidant Tom Barrack


BY REBECCA KHEEL - 02/20/19 07:02 PM EST 190


Tom Barrack, one of President Trump's closest confidants, is a major player in the president's orbit who could be ensnared in a Democratic probe unveiled this week.


he investigation, led by Democrats in control of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, is digging into Trump’s desire to sell nuclear energy technology to Saudi Arabia.

An interim report released by Democrats on the panel this week said Barrack’s name came up several times as a proposed special representative to lead the Saudi nuclear effort.

As part of the probe, committee chairman, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), sent letters Tuesday to Barrack and his investment firm, Colony NorthStar, requesting more information.

A spokesman for Barrack said after the interim report was released that he “stands ready” to cooperate with the committee and noted that he never joined the Trump administration.

1. As if not being a card carrying member of Trump Inc. did not count.



He goes back a long way with Trump.

I sure hope he tries to be less than forthcoming in his answers. I suspect he and others will be surprised by how the Committees know.
