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.

Democrat Superdelegates Willing to Overturn Primary Delegate Count to Stop Bernie
The Democratic Party still has a ‘superdelegate’ system.
New York Times interviews with several Democrat superdelegates revealed that the party elites are willing and prepared to block a Bernie Sanders nomination if they have the ability.
The superdelegates only enter into play if the Democrat nomination process goes to a second ballot at the party’s convention in Milwaukee. For that to happen, no candidate could possess an outright majority of (pledged) delegates on the first ballot.
In such a case, superdelegates could plausibly prove instrumental in deciding the nomination.
Bernie Sanders has gone on the record stating that the Democrat candidate who possesses the most delegates at the convention-even if they’re not an outright majority- should be the nominee. Every other Democrat candidate, with the exception of Tulsi Gabbard, has declined to back such a proposition.
Superdelegates interviewed by the Times seemed relatively unapologetic about the prospect of overturning the will of a plurality of Democrat voters and handing the nomination to a candidate with less popular votes and delegates.
“Bernie wants to redefine the rules and just say he just needs a plurality,” said Jay Jacobs, chair of the New York Democrat Party. “I don’t think we buy that. I don’t think the mainstream of the Democratic Party buys that. If he doesn’t have a majority, it stands to reason that he may not become the nominee.”
The Times interviewed 93 superdelegates, finding consensus behind such a controversial proposition.
Superdelegates lost their right to participate in the first nominating ballot for the presidential primary after the 2016 election. Many Democrats were incensed at their undemocratic role in the nominating process, especially in light of their overwhelming allegiance to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primary.
Superdelegates are composed of party donors, elected officials, and other elite Democrats granted the powerful position by the DNC.
It’s worth noting that primary season talk of contested conventions, be it in the Republican or Democrat Party, rarely materializes. Hope of a contested convention is usually limited to a pipe dream that party segments resort to when it becomes too obvious that their preferred candidate is not going to be selected by voters.
