Tom Barrack, who chaired former President Donald Trump's 2017 inaugural committee, was arrested Tuesday on charges that he unlawfully influenced the foreign policy positions of the campaign and administration to advance the interests of the United Arab Emirates, the Justice Department said.

In a seven-count indictment, unsealed in a New York federal court, Barrack, 74, and two others are accused of "acting and conspiring to act as agents" of the United Arab Emirates between April 2016 and April 2018. Barrack was also charged with obstruction of justice and making multiple false statements to federal law enforcement agents.

The trio acted "to advance the interests of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the United States at the direction of senior UAE officials by influencing the foreign policy positions of the campaign of a candidate in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and, subsequently, the foreign policy positions of the U.S. government in the incoming administration, as well as seeking to influence public opinion in favor of UAE interests," the DOJ said.

Lawyer Alan Dershowitz called Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is Jewish, a "self-hating jew" over his stance on the Israel-Palestine conflict.

Dershowitz, a former Harvard law professor and high-profile defense attorney who has represented Jeffrey Epstein, OJ Simpson, and Donald Trump, was speaking on a right-wing news outlet.

"Inadvertently you get the social media supporting Hamas, The New York Times supporting Hamas, and it sends a very powerful message: 'Do it again,'" he said. "You'll prevail on this because of the antisemitism that stimulates so much of this. And you can be a Jew and an antisemite."
