Report: Prosecutors Resume Foreign Lobby Probe Of Podesta Group, Mercury Public Affairs

DC: Federal prosecutors have recently resumed interviewing witnesses in an investigation of two lobbying firms that worked with former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, including one operated by the brother of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.

According to The Associated Press, prosecutors in New York have in recent weeks started contacting witnesses and attorneys as part of an investigation into the Podesta Group and Mercury Public Affairs.

The two firms worked with Manafort through 2014 on a consulting project aimed at fluffing the public image of former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych.

Prosecutors have also focused on Greg Craig, the former White House general counsel under then-President Barack Obama and a former partner at the firm Skadden Arps. CNN reported in September that prosecutors were weighing charges against Craig, who has since left his firm.  read more

  1. Why bother. When found guilty, Tony Podesta will pay a token fine, and go on his way. No prison time, so don’t get your hopes up.

  2. Agree with Tony, there’s little to stir hopes of justice ever leveling these types. Laws only apply to us pissants.

  3. Important to note, Craig fell out of favor during his short stent w/obama admin. He found out on the morning news his service was no longer required.
    Start “investigating” Rice, Powers, Brennan, Clapper or Comey, then I’ll pay attention.
