WASHINGTON (AP) — A prolific political fundraiser who donated large sums to President Donald Trump's inaugural committee has agreed to plead guilty to multiple federal charges, including tax evasion and concealing his work as a foreign agent as he lobbied high-level U.S. government officials, the Justice Department said Tuesday.

The allegations against Imaad Zuberi don't involve his Trump ties but are centered instead on millions of dollars in contributions he made during the Obama administration, when officials say he used his contributions to obtain access to government officials and persuade them to change American policy in ways favorable to his clients.
