#1 Been doing it for years, but they only publicize his actions this year. Note:

He is pictured with former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, whose campaign he donated to in 2015 -- and --

Zuberi, a longtime political donor, has supported candidates from both parties in the past. He is seen with former President Barack Obama (left) and former Vice President Joe Biden (right). Not to mention -

Zuberi'sname surfaced in that investigation amid reports that Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen was questioned by federal prosecutors about the donor.

I'm sure the US media will focus on this last tidbit.

#4 Misleading headline. He donated to Hillary and Obama. He likes to hedge his bets?

#5 If you just want influence and you don't care who wins, you donate to both candidates. You hedge your bet. Trump donated to Bill Clinton.

#6 His Linked In claims he speaks Hindi and some Arabic, went to university in California. Mr. Wife says Imaad Zuberi is an Arabic name.

#7 This whole thing seems too covenient. Why wasn't Zuberi prosecuted under the Obama administration? Certainly Obama and Hillary knew about him early on. Why is this coming up now? I smell a rat or several.

#8 The claim here is that this guy donated to the Trump Inaugural Committee, not to the Trump Campaign.
If he gave to the Trump campaign that surely would have been mentioned.
Also it seems that he gave some campaign illegal contributions, to influence high power politicians. Who could that campaign and those politician be?
Who beside Trump was running for President?
Could it have been Jill Stein? Is there anyone else possible?
