I am 100% innocent in lobbying case: Trump

New York: The chair of former President Donald Trump's 2017 inaugural committee pleaded not guilty on Monday and said he was “100 per cent innocent” of charges that he secretly lobbied the U.S. On behalf of the United Arab Emirates.

Tom Barrack, 74, wearing a black mask to protect against the coronavirus, appeared in Brooklyn Federal Court for the first time, days after he was freed on $250 million bail  following his arrest in California. His lawyer entered his plea for him.

“As you'd expect, the system is working. I think what you'll find is that … over time, you'll all see that I'm 100per cent innocent," Barrack said as he left the courthouse.

Prosecutors say Barrack used his multidecade friendship with Trump to influence the Republican's policy, starting when Trump was a candidate in 2016 and continuing after he was sworn in as president.
