Report: Mueller Grants Immunity to Tony Podesta in Manafort Case

Published

on

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.

Dan Crenshaw White Knights for Liz Cheney After Republicans Blast Her Support for Trump’s Second Impeachment

Birds of a feather flock together.

Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.

“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”

“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added.

Crenshaw himself was then roundly criticized in the replies to his tweet.

Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”

As the old saying goes, “birds of a feather flock together.” Dan Crenshaw and Liz Cheney most certainly do not represent the future of the GOP.
