Powerhouse Democrat lobbyist Tony Podesta, founder of the Podesta Group, has resigned from his own firm amid investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller. Podesta’s resignation comes on the heels of the indictment of Paul Manafort, former campaign chairman to President Donald J. Trump. Manafort was indicted on several federal charges including money laundering, making false statements to federal authorities, and failing to disclose overseas bank accounts.
According to Politico, the investigation into the Podesta Group, “grew out of investigators’ examinations of Manafort’s finances.” Mueller, of course, has been investigating the Trump campaign for months regarding alleged Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential campaign.
The obvious tie between Manafort and the Podesta Group is the non-profit “European Centre for a Modern Ukraine,” described six days ago by a Fox News source as a “shell group for the Russians,” for which Manafort organized a public relations campaign. The Podesta Group is one of the firms hired to lobby on behalf of the non-profit in D.C. between 2012 and 2014.
Today’s events raise more questions than answers in the grand scheme of the Russia scandal. John Podesta, brother of now-unemployed Tony Podesta, was Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, suggesting closer ties between the Clinton camp and Russian influence than have been alleged by the mainstream media and Clinton herself. Clinton has blamed the Russians for her election loss multiple times during her ongoing worldwide book tour.
Podesta told his firm that he “doesn’t intend to go quietly,” and that he “needs to fight this as an individual, but doesn’t want the firm to fight it.” It is unclear what Podesta plans to fight, but it seems likely to be related to Mueller’s investigation.
Shipments of 20,000+ Fake US Driver’s Licenses From China Intercepted at Chicago Airport
For use in election fraud?
Customs authorities have intercepted more than a 1,000 individual shipments containing almost 20,000 fraudulent driver’s licenses at Chicago O’Hare Airport this year alone.
19,888 fake US driver’s licenses have been caught in smuggling busts at the airport, distributed throughout 1,513 fraudulent shipments.
Fox 5 New York is reporting that the fake ID’s are coming from mainland China, Hong Kong, South Korea, and the UK.
“These counterfeit driver’s licenses can lead to disastrous consequences,” Customs and Border Patrol’s Ralph Piccirilli said in a statement. “Criminal organizations use these counterfeit IDs to avoid attracting attention to their illegal activities.”
Customs officials have described the fake Chinese ID’s as extremely realistic and well-made, stating that the barcode on the fake documents passes electronic verification checks.
If this many fake ID’s are coming in at one airport alone, there’s a significant possibility that many more fake documents are being smuggled into the country at other airports. It’s entirely unclear what these ID’s are being used for- most of the bars that underage college kids would enter to drink alcohol in are closed. There’s a very real possibility the Chinese-made fake ID’s could be an integral part of an election fraud operation. Even the most strict voter ID states such as Arizona accept a driver’s license as proof of voter registration and eligibility.
Customs officers stationed at the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport are reporting that they’ve busted more than 2,000 fake ID’s since 2019, describing a surge in the smuggling of fake driver’s licenses.
