But federal prosecutors say Zuberi’s life was built on a series of lies and the lucrative enterprise of filling the campaign coffers of American politicians and profiting from the resulting influence. They describe him as a “mercenary” political donor who gave to anyone -- often using foreign money given through illegal straw donors. (AP Photo/Brian Melley, File)
