Allegations are surfacing that the Egyptian interim government is in possession of a document that could prove damaging to the U.S.
The official document is said to have been seized when Morsi was deposed. With the trial of Muslim Brotherhood leaders now taking place this evidence will be introduced during that trial.
Currently, WND is claiming to be in possession of a copy of that official document, (read the story here), which raises some questions. One of which they said was:
"Did the Obama administration pay bribes as large as $850,000 a year to the Morsi government that were distributed by top ministerial-level officials to Muslim Brotherhood leaders, with the direct involvement of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo?"
WND claims the official record has signatures documenting monthly "gifts" which were paid to Muslim Brotherhood leaders in Egypt. The money is said to have been paid out by the former prime and foreign minister of Qatar, Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabor Al Thani.
The interim government said they seized the document when Morsi was deposed on July 3. The document was translated by Walid Shoebat former PLO member, who is fluent in Arabic. The gifts listed in the document range from an annual payment of $750,000 to $850,000 in U.S. dollars. The "gifts" are said to amount to bribes and were paid to MB leaders by Morsi's government.
The Cairo district attorney is currently investigating the accusations that MB leaders were receiving bribes, which were "thinly disguised as gifts." The Egyptian newspaper Almesryoon says the following MB leaders are being investigated:
Mohamed Badie, general guide of the Muslim Brotherhood; Khairat Al-Shater, deputy leader of the Muslim Brotherhood and businessman. Mohamed Beltagy, the deputy head of the Freedom and Justice Party, the Muslim Brotherhood’s political party in Egypt, and the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood group, Essam el-Erian; Abu Ela Mady, head of the Wasat Party; and Essam Sultan, deputy head of the Wasat Party.
According to WND these allegations are that: "it appears the U.S. government was paying monthly bribes in U.S. dollars, with payments as large as $85,000 a month, to top Muslim Brotherhood leaders in Egypt, with the money being passed from the United States through the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to the Morsi government.”
It was stressed to WND by Shoebat that this evidence will be presented to the Egyptian court when at the trial which began on Aug. 25.
The charges against the MB leaders include; bribes given to the MB leaders from the U.S. Embassy, murders, assassination, prison escaped, sniper activity which indiscriminately killing demonstrators, spying and collaborating with foreign governments, namely the U.S. and Qatar.
The above mentioned evidence does not include that which jailed MB leader claims to have on Obama. On Aug. 14, the Examiner reported that Khairat Al-Shater claims to have the evidence "in hand" that could land Obama in prison.
Shater's son, Saeed Al-Shater said his father had "documents and recordings that would incriminate and condemn our nation. Only time will tell if this evidence also comes out as the trial unfolds. These documents are said to be "entrusted to people inside and outside of Egypt."
