Thomas Barrack, a member of the USC Board of Trustees, was arrested Tuesday and charged that he unlawfully influenced the foreign policy positions of the Trump campaign and administration to advance the interests of the United Arab Emirates, the Justice Department said.
The indictment also charged Barrack with obstruction of justice and making multiple false statements during a June 20, 2019, interview with federal law enforcement agents.
“Mr. Barrack has made himself voluntarily available to investigators from the outset. He is not guilty and will be pleading not guilty,” his spokesperson told NBC News.
It will be interesting to see if Rick Caruso or Carol Folt do anything on this or simplyi look the other way?
You might remember Barrack’s name came up in January when the White House said he supported a pardon for Robert Zangrillo, a Varsity Blues parent. Barrack denied supporting the pardon and Caruso/Folt ignored it.
There is so much corruption at USC, maybe Caruso/Folt feel no one cares.
