Trump ally Barrack acquitted of acting as UAE foreign agent


November 7, 2022

NEW YORK, Nov 4 (Reuters) - Tom Barrack, a onetime private equity executive and fundraiser for former President Donald Trump, was found not guilty by a jury on Friday of unlawfully acting as an agent of the United Arab Emirates.

Barrack, who chaired the former president's 2017 inaugural committee and served as an informal adviser to the campaign, was acquitted of all nine counts he faced, including conspiracy to act as a foreign agent, obstruction of justice, and making false statements to the FBI in 2019 during their probe of his interactions with Emirati officials and their representatives.

"I'm humbled," Barrack told reporters outside the federal courthouse in Brooklyn after the verdict, which followed a six-week trial. "I have no hostility, I'm just proud to be an American."
