Mueller is now investigating the podesta group as part of the ongoing probe into Russian meddling in u.s. government


Special counsel Robert Mueller’s federal probe has now expanded to include Tony Podesta and the Podesta Group, NBC News reported Monday. The special counsel began looking into the Democratic power-player and his lobbying group after probing the finances of former Trump campaign chief Paul Manafort. “Manafort had organized a public-relations campaign for a nonprofit called the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine (ECMU),” NBC explained. “Podesta’s company was one of many firms that worked on the campaign, which promoted Ukraine's image in the West.” The Podesta inquiry began as a “fact-finding mission” about Manafort, “but has now morphed into a criminal inquiry into whether the firm violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act, known as FARA.” Podesta is the brother of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta.



Allegedly the podesta group is guilty of taking possibly millions of dollars in undocumented lobbying fees from foreign companies and Banks. Without registering in the US as a foreign lobbying agent.
the Dems wanted to smash Paul manafort for this but I guess it backfired big-time
I hear talk that Mueller is just doing this to show that he is being objective.
People have brought up that Mueller is actually good friends and goes way back with Clinton, comey and the rest of the usual suspects.
Eh. Its all probably theatrics anyway.

Agreed, it's the left hand investigating what the right hand is doing.
