Mueller Referred Tony Podesta Case To New York Prosecutors

DC: Special Counsel Robert Mueller has referred cases on a group of prominent American lobbyists, including Democrat-connected superlobbyist Tony Podesta, to federal prosecutors in New York as part of an inquiry into whether the operatives worked as unregistered foreign agents.

Mueller also referred former Obama White House General Counsel Greg Craig and former Minnesota Republican Rep. Vin Weber to the New York office as part of the inquiry, according to CNN.

All three of the lobbyists worked with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort on a campaign to help former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.

Mueller has indicted Manafort in two federal jurisdictions on a slew of charges related to his work for Yanukovcyh, including tax evasion and acting as an unregistered foreign agent. Manafort went on trial in Virginia on Tuesday. MORE

  1. Now the leftists will have to transition from :Trump-Russia collusion” to Trump-Ukraine Collusion”?

  2. pulleeze! … take a deep breath & count on the Fed-NYC will NOT bother to bring charges against the Clinton Mafia …. EVER!
    … NYC … so deeply involved in corruption, since before the 5 Points

  3. @ Molon Labe – breathing away here, like many others. Not so sure of what you say is correct, we are in uncharted waters these days …we’ll see.

    POTUS knows NYC…many connections…


  4. This may be off-topic, but it isn’t off-subject.

    Trump – Russia collusion? Fooey!
    How about CIA – FBI conspiracy to violate fed law?
    Here‘s an opinion/commentary piece in today’s WSJ by an ex-FBI special agent that does a pretty good job of laying it all out. It will be in tomorrow’s print edition (8/1) as well.

  5. Referring Tony “Slugo” Podesta to NY is a pathetic attempt at slight of hand from Mueller. He’s really getting both sloppy and desperate.
    If I had any faith in Sessions I’d think Mueller is getting uneasy about how he’s put himself in a box.

  6. @organgrinder — Your comment made me chuckle (derisively). It appears Mueller would have to put himself in a box, tie it up with a big red bow and mail himself to Sessions in order to rouse Jeffy’s interest.
