Tony Podesta Resigns from Podesta Group Amid Manafort Indictment

Published

on

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.

President Trump Defends American Heritage in Mount Rushmore Celebration

The President defended American heritage, images, and traditions against the cultural Left.

Published

President Donald Trump delivered a full-throated defense of American heritage, traditions, and history during his Independence Day celebration event at Mount Rushmore on Friday, pledging to defend icons of American civilization from the onslaught of a fanatical cultural Left intent on destroying and pillaging them.

The President pledged that the American monument at which he spoke would “never be destroyed” by the cultural fanatics determined to destroy images of other American Presidents, such as Andrew Jackson and Ulysses Grant.

I am here as your President to proclaim before the country, and before the world,” pledged the President, “this monument will never be desecrated. These heroes will never be defaced. Their legacies will never ever be destroyed. Their achievements will never be forgotten, and Mount Rushmore will stand forever as an eternal tribute to our forefathers and to our freedom.

An attempt to prevent the event by left-wing rioters by barricading off the public access road to Mount Rushmore failed, with law enforcement towing away sabotaged vehicles they planted on the road to prevent Americans from participating in political expression.

The President spoke against the insidious agenda of the cultural left, calling out the major corporations and societal institutions that have cheered on the recent attack throughout American society against patriotic traditions.

“And yet, as we meet here tonight, there is a growing danger that threatens every blessing our ancestors fought so hard for, struggled and bled, to secure. Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values, and indoctrinate our children.”

MAGA conservatives and America First Nationalists largely saluted the speech as one of the greatest of Trump’s presidency, speaking with clarity in defense of American identity in an era where liberal fanaticism threatens the fabric of the American way of life.

The President also announced the creation of a new “Garden of American Heroes,” a patriotic public park that will honor the legacies and memory of American patriots such as George Patton, Amelia Earheart, and Benjamin Franklin.
