Former Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton Senior Policy Advisor Charged with Child Sex Offenses

A senior policy advisor for Barack Obama and Hillary is facing potential jail time for crimes involving children.

46-year-old Rahamim Shy was reportedly arrested by British police in Bedfordshire in February after the former advisor was accused of arranging the commission of a child sex offense.

Shy has also been charged with possession of two category C indecent images of children and possessing a prohibited image of a child.

He worked for the White House under Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and was responsible for directing the U.S. government’s strategy to combat Islamist terrorists such as Al Qaeda and the Taliban.

Shy worked in a senior role at the US Treasury Department from 2008 to 2014, advising officials on countering the financing of terrorism and assisting foreign governments to impose sanctions on hostile regimes.

The Democrat has not entered a plea and is currently in police custody ahead of hearing in June.
