Trump ex-fundraiser charged for role in foreign lobbying

Elliott Broidy, a former fundraiser for US President Donald Trump, was criminally charged for his role in foreign lobbying, according to a court filing, and he is expected to plead guilty later this month, a source familiar with the situation said on Thursday.
Broidy was charged with illegally orchestrating a back-channel unregistered campaign to lobby the Trump administration for the benefit of a foreign country tied to Malaysia's multibillion 1MDB scandal.
Broidy, a businessman who held senior finance posts in Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and his inaugural committee, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
