#FLIP: PAUL MANAFORT AGREES TO COOPERATE WITH MUELLER
#FLOP: But the Cooperation Will Not Concern the Trump Campaign
#TWIST: Feds Weighing Charges Against Clinton Lawyer and Former WH Counsel Greg Craig

Aww. So close.

Per NPR:



Well, if he's not turning state's witness against Trump, then who?

Well it could include the guys he worked with -- including longtime Clinton supporter and brother of Jon Podesta, Tony Podesta.



Skadden refers to high-power law firm Skadden Arps, where former Obama White House Counsel Greg Craig found a nest. He was also under investigation for his work for the same foreign clients that Manafort was investigated for.

The existence of this particular probe was first reported by CNN, which characterized the investigation as looking into whether lobbyists and operatives failed to register their work as foreign agents. None of the people identified as being under investigation have been charged with a crime.

In October, NBC News was the first to report that Democratic lobbyist Tony Podesta and the Podesta Group were being investigated by Mueller’s office.

Tony Podesta is the chairman of the Podesta Group and the brother of John Podesta, Hillary Clinton's former presidential campaign chairman. John Podesta is not currently affiliated with the Podesta Group and is not part of the investigation.

The probe of Tony Podesta and his Democratic-leaning lobbying firm grew out of Mueller's inquiry into the finances of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to the sources.


...

Separately, Craig, the former Obama White House counsel, is under investigation as well, the sources said.


Craig left his job at the law firm of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, after he and the firm became caught up in Mueller's investigation.

And in the last hour, CNN reported that feds are weighing charges against Greg Craig.

If that name sounds familiar, he was one of Clinton's lead lawyers during the impeachment hearings.

Federal prosecutors in New York are weighing criminal charges against former Obama White House counsel Greg Craig as part of an investigation into whether he failed to register as a foreign agent in a probe that is linked to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, according to sources familiar with the matter.
