Mueller Now Investigating the Podesta Group for Russia Lobbying


Print story here.

According to Monday’s NBC News report, Manafort organized a PR campaign for a pro-Ukraine nonprofit called the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine (ECMU), which reportedly was backed by a pro-Russia party. The Podesta Group reportedly was one of many firms that worked on the campaign.

According to NBC News, Mueller's team began looking at Podesta and his company and is now pursuing a criminal inquiry into whether the company violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA).

The media doesn't like to talk about this, but Paul Manafort and the Podesta Group both worked to lobby on behalf of Russia -- so if Manafort's being investigated, why not the brother of Hillary's top adviser?

But now Robert Mueller's on the case to cover it up.


Maybe Mueller will give the Podesta Group a sweetheart plea deal like his FBI gave the Russian uranium racketeer.

The Uranium One scandal is not only, or even principally, a Clinton scandal. It is an Obama-administration scandal.

The Clintons were just doing what the Clintons do: cashing in on their "public service." The Obama administration, with Secretary Clinton at the forefront but hardly alone, was knowingly compromising American national-security interests. The administration green-lighted the transfer of control over one-fifth of American uranium-mining capacity to Russia, a hostile regime --and specifically to Russia's state-controlled nuclear-energy conglomerate, Rosatom.

Worse, at the time the administration approved the transfer, it knew that Rosatom’s American subsidiary was engaged in a lucrative racketeering enterprise that had already committed felony extortion, fraud, and money-laundering offenses. Powered by The Obama administration also knew that congressional Republicans were trying to stop the transfer. Consequently, the Justice Department concealed what it knew. DOJ allowed the racketeering enterprise to continue compromising the American uranium industry rather than commencing a prosecution that would have scotched the transfer. Prosecutors waited four years before quietly pleading the case out for a song, in violation of Justice Department charging guidelines. Meanwhile, the administration stonewalled Congress, reportedly threatening an informant who wanted to go public.

Robert Mueller must resign. Immediately. Or be fired by Ron Rosenstein.

Who, frankly, given his high position in the DOJ throughout this period, is also up to his neck in this and must at least recuse himself.
