According to the indictment, Tom Barrack asked Emirati officials to create a “wish list” for the first 100 days, 6 months, year, and four years of the new Trump administration. Barrack pleaded not guilty in Brooklyn federal court. https://t.co/xMAQpQlM4W

But then again: Bonesaws!
Some speculating that Barrack will flee. Though possible (he's also a citizen of Lebanon & has ties with UAE), I do not believe he will do so bc he has another viable option to resolve this case with a likely sentence of probation: cooperation, not spending life as fugitive.
