Deep State

Should Tony Podesta Be Sweating Manafort’s Convictions?

Published

on

Paul Manafort’s convictions on eight counts of tax or financial fraud (out of 18 levelled against him) have galvanized the mainstream media to create a narrative that President Donald Trump is legally sinking amid all of the Deep State and Democrat Party plots against him.

However, the mainstream media largely ignores the fact that Paul Manafort worked for the Podesta Group, run by Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s brother Tony.

The case is narrative fodder for mainstream journalists eager to tie Trump to his campaign manager, but the actual implications of the case could lead back to the heart of the Democratic Party establishment.

Fox News previously reported: “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), Carlson said. Manafort and the group worked on a campaign called the European Centre for a Modern Ukraine, the Washington Times reported.”

FARA violations are serious business, and all of this Ukranian work obviously ties into media-invented narratives regarding Russian collusion. Ukraine has a powerful lobby in Washington to agitate against its rival Russia.

Tony Podesta was never granted immunity by Robert Mueller because alternative media led by Tucker Carlson shut down the idea of that ploy after the press started floating it.

So Tony Podesta remains eligible to be charged, and it’s clear that the Podesta Group link could complicate media narratives.

However, so far President Trump has been unable to command control of his own Department of Justice led by Jeff Sessions, and the anti-Trump conspirators are racking up legal wins in criminal court while Trump’s moves have been less visible. Despite arrests of Harvey Weinstein and some other high-profile establishment players, Trump is still saddled with a DOJ that is essentially being run by anti-Trump conspirator Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who just can’t seem to get himself fired no matter what he does.

Prosecutors Move to Drop Charges Against Russians Charged By Robert Mueller

A nothingburger all along.

Published

Federal prosecutors have given a tacit admission of the pointlessness of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russian conspiracy probe one year after its conclusion, dropping charges against the Russian nationals accused of orchestrating an “election interference” operation in the United States during the 2016 election.

Court documents revealed that the prosecutors are dropping charges on Monday.

Concord Management is a Russian company accused of being the parent of the Internet Research Agency, another Russian entity that Mueller accused of running troll farms that post memes and comment online about the 2016 election. 12 employees of Concord Management were charged by Mueller for the supposed operation.

The individuals in question weren’t American residents, and only some of them were present in the country for a period.

The prosecutors overseeing the case against the Russians admitted that there was no chance the individuals, who live across the world, would be meaningfully punished for their supposed election interference operations.

The men were said to be agents of the Russian state intelligence agency known as the GRU. Mueller claimed that they were responsible for the infamous hack of the DNC’s email servers during the 2016 Democratic convention.

Concord, a Russian company with no presence in the United States and no exposure to meaningful punishment in the event of a conviction, promotes neither the interests of justice or the nation’s security… The better course is to cease litigation as to the Concord defendants.

It was quite obvious since the beginning that wire fraud charges against Russian residents with no presence in the United States was going to be a fruitless endeavor, but the Deep State’s man intended to deliver a gesture for the bureaucratic entity, regardless of the substance behind it.

Already largely forgotten, the Mueller probe appears set to enter the memory hole as little more than a pointless hoax in light of the dismissed charges against supposed “election interference” perpetrators.
