AUGUST 25, 2009 : (ARREST OF NEMAZEE —— See CHUCK SCHUMER & US ATTNY PREET BHARARA) Poster:...Heres the US Attorney of the Southern District Preet Bhararas complaint against Democratic mega-donor Hassan Nemazee, the chairman of Nemazee Capital Corp. who was arrested today on charges that he used phony documents to trick Citigroup Inc. into lending him up to $74 million.
Nemazee is perhaps best known as a fundraiser for both President Obama and former Sen. Hillary Clinton. He also served as national finance chairman for the DSCC when it was headed by Sen. Chuck Schumer, which is sort of ironic, considering that [ US Attorney of the Southern District Preet ] Bharara was, until very recently, working as chief counsel to the senior senator of New York.
Nemazee has maxed out in contributions to both Schumer and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, giving them a total of $4,800 each (two $2,400 checks to Schumer in April - one for the primary, one for the general - and two of the same amount to Gillibrand in June).
Woops. I missed some additional contributions. Nemazee gave Gillibrand $1,000 in 2005 and another $1,000 in 2006. He gave two $2,000 donations to Rep. Carolyn Maloney in 2005. There was also $151,700 to the DSCC between March 2006 and March 2009.
Im still awaiting word on whether this money will be returned.-——— “Nemazee Fallout,” http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/dailypolitics/2009/08/nemazee-fallout.html

In a December 3 address to the Council on Foreign Relations, Mr. Kerry said that if he was president, he will be prepared early on to explore areas of mutual interest with Iran. In that same speech he chastised the Bush administration for failing to hand over Iraqi-based insurgents to Tehran in exchange for members of Al Qaeda. It is incomprehensible and unacceptable that this administration refuses to broker an arrangement with Iran for a mutual crackdown on both terrorist groups, he told the council.
Mr. Kerry and his fund-raiser have drawn the criticism of many Iranians pushing for America to support Iranian democrats. Unfortunately Mr. Nemazee is still advising Mr. Kerry, a spokesman for the Student Movement Coordination Committee for Democracy in Iran,Aryo Pirooznia, told The New York Sun yesterday. Everyone remembers in the last of year of the Clinton administration when Mr. Nemazee gave a speech at the AIC calling for the removal of all sanctions against the Islamic Republic. We will be asking any Iranian-American of principle to vote for President Bush knowing that Mr. Kerry has recently said that Iran is moving toward democracy. - Kerrys Fund-Raiser Worries Advocates Of Iran Democracy, NY Sun ^ | Tue, 27 Jan 2004 | ELI LAKE , Posted on Wednesday, January 28, 2004 12:52:39 AM by F14 Pilot
