Doug Jones tried to present himself as a rugged Southerner Tuesday at a campaign stop in which he mocked Judge Roy Moore’s cowboy hat and display of a gun on stage.

Jones claimed that he is a deer hunter.

A photograph on one of Doug Jones’ own social media accounts shows Jones with progressive celebrity filmmaker Spike Lee, who has made numerous comments disparaging gun culture and the NRA, even accusing NRA donation recipients of taking “blood money.”

Report: Mueller Grants Immunity to Tony Podesta in Manafort Case

Published

Reports are circulating that longtime DNC lobbyist, Tony Podesta, has been granted immunity in exchange for testifying against a former campaign chairman to President Donald J. Trump, who has been charged under the Foreign Agent Registration Act.

“The Podesta Group reportedly worked with Manafort — a former chairman of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign — to lobby on behalf of Ukrainian interests in the United States, without properly registering at the time under the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA),” Fox News reported.

The Podesta Group, owned by Tony and his brother John, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, was a large D.C. lobbying firm that closed its doors at the end of last year.

Manafort and the Podesta Group reportedly worked on a campaign for European Centre for a Modern Ukraine. Manafort stands accused of multiple financial crimes in connection with lobbying work he performed in for the Centre.

Make no mistake, the Podesta Group did not register as a foreign agent under FARA either, meaning that Podesta will remain uncharged  for the same crime for which Manafort is accused.

Tucker Carlson noted on his show that in the past 51 years, only seven people had been charged under FARA, though there were surely many more violations during that timespan. In 2018, three people have been charged under the Act – all of them somehow related to Donald Trump.

Once again it appears that Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller is on a partisan witch hunt to mar the reputation of Trump and his associates who worked on his campaign.
